Cindy Crawford's daughter surpasses Bella Hadid, becomes "Model of the Year 2018"

Kaia Gerber, daughter of supermodel Cindy Crawford, has been crowned "Model of the Year" at the annual "Fashion Awards 2018" event.

Only 17 years old, Gerber has become the youngest model to be honored with this award.

The supermodel faced strong competition from the likes of Adut Akech, Adwoa Aboah (last year's winner), Bella Hadid and Winnie Harlow to take home the prestigious award.

This is an incredible achievement for the teenager who started modeling last September, just 4 days after her 16th birthday.

She made her debut at Calvin Klein's spring/summer 2019 fashion show during New York Fashion Week.

2018 is undoubtedly a big year for Kaia Gerber, who has conquered the runways walking the catwalk for major fashion houses such as Burberry, Versace, Alexander Wang and Valentino.

Kaia Greber was supported by her family during the big night as she walked the red carpet in a stunning Alexander McQueen gown. She was accompanied by mom Cindy Crawford, dad Randy Gerber and older brother, Presley Gerber.

At 17 years old, it's certain that this is just the beginning for Kaia and she will undoubtedly follow in her supermodel mom's footsteps.
