12 Reasons Kaia Gerber Is the Next Kendall Jenner

03/17/2016 at 05:15 PM ET

If you aren’t familiar with Kaia Gerber, consider this your formal introduction. The 14-year-old daughter of supermodel Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber is on the verge of supermodel stardom. In fact, she’s basically everywhere and her career reminds us of another famous model we love: Kendall Jenner.

Kaia has so much in common with Kendall, we compiled proof that Cindy’s mini-me is the next big model of the moment (beware Kenny!).

1. She Nails Model-Off-Duty Style

Kendall is known for her effortlessly cool jeans-and-a-tee #OOTD’s, and Kaia has clearly taken notes.

2. Her Name Begins with a K

A very important fact.

3. She’s Landing Big Designer Campaigns
From Alexander Wang to Roberto Cavalli, the model’s impressive résumé is longer than Kendall’s was at 14.

4. She’s Already in “The Squad”

Of course we’re referring to Taylor Swift’s gang, which Kendall is also a part of. So is Cindy Crawford, in case you forgot about her cameo in “Bad Blood.”

5. She’s Also in Harry Styles’ Inner Circle

They go on family lunch dates together, hang backstage at concerts and he even visits her at home. In fact, there’s more photos of Kaia and Harry then Kendall and Harry.

6. She’s Part of the Balmain Army

Just like Kim paved the way for her sister’s relationship with Olivier Rousteing, Cindy introduced her daughter to the designer. (She also landed a new campaign for the high-fashion brand!)

7. She Has Kendall’s 2012 Hair

Kaia’s gorgeous mane reminds us a lot of the long hair Kendall rocked before she walked runways all over the world.

8. She’s Graced the Pages of Teen Vogue

The gateway gig to landing Vogue, Kaia posed for a gorgeous spread in the magazine earlier this year. Kendall landed two covers for the publication when her career was starting to skyrocket in 2014.

Just 5 months after Kendall covered French Vogue‘s 95th anniversary issue, Kaia and her mom posed for the April 2016 front of the iconic publication.

No comparison. Although, Kendall is gorgeous and does not look like the rest of the Kardashian’s…Kaia comes from a stable home life. Please, People, Do not compare Kaia to Kendall..

sandra on

There is only 1 Cindy. ….

gymluv on

Don’t insult a beautiful young lady by comparing her to Kendall. There is no comparison except for the first letter of their names. These girls are polar opposites. Classy versus classless.

asdf on

haha. Crawford is at least model material. the jenners paid for their runway walks. kendell has no neck; a must for modeling. hope mama Crawford doesn’t let or encourage nudity with this one. she can make it without that. good luck crawfords. jenners, please, I beg of you, go away. you be gross

S. on

………and all of this is because of “Mommy Dearest”.

Mary on

Wow – Kaia is gorgeous like her mother! Do not compare to Kendall who is just average pretty and only got the modeling gigs because she is related to the Kartrashians.

Melissa Shieh on

Yeah. How about she’s not the next anyone else. She’s herself. I’d be super offended if someone compared me to anyone that is associated with the Kardashians.

Smithy on

Kaia is 100x prettier than Kendall. While you can blame Kendall’s success on her lineage, Kaia has some lineage, but girl could totally make it on her own with no connection to her mama. You go girl. She is gorgeous.

Jennifer on

At least Kaia posts pictures of herself wearing a bracelet to support cancer research because I think Cindy told her the story about how Kaia’s Uncle (Cindy’s brother) died of cancer when he was a small child .

I HIGHLY DOUBT that Kendall will EVER do something like that!!! Because her and the rest of her family are too self-centered to think about others.

kennedy on

please don’t ever compare another young gorgeous girl to a kardashian/jenner.
