COM­PAR­ING HER TIME IN THE spot­light as a su­per­model in the 1990s to daugh­ter Kaia Ger­ber’s ex­pe­ri­ence as an up­com­ing fash­ion star, Cindy Craw­ford, 51, (see p. 56) said in Novem­ber the “big­gest change” she sees is body-im­age pres­sure. “The ex­pec­ta­tion is for them to be even thin­ner now,” she said in an in­ter­view with web­site Re­fin­ery29. “I was al­ways a [US] size 6; I was never su­per-skinny and I never felt bad about it ... You could have boobs, you could have hips, you could have a lit­tle ex­tra flesh. Now, the mod­els are ex­pected to be so much thin­ner.”

In early Septem­ber, days af­ter her 16th birth­day, Ger­ber walked in her first-ever run­way show at New York Fash­ion Week and a week later jet­ted to Lon­don to con­tinue her fash­ion month reign. Dur­ing that time, an ab-bar­ing In­sta­gram selfie sparked talk that she had lost too much weight and at re­cent out­ings, such as the Casami­gos Hal­loween Party in West Hol­ly­wood on Oct. 28, she ap­peared star­tlingly slim.

“Stay­ing in shape is def­i­nitely some­thing I think about, but I don’t let it get in the way,” the young model in­sisted in May. “I’m ac­tive, but I’m not just go­ing to wake up and go to the gym and not eat pizza.”

“One day, I’m not go­ing to be able to eat what­ever I want,” 1.75m Ger­ber (on Oct. 28) said in May. UN­DER SCRUTINY “Mod­els are ex­pected to be so tiny and I worry about that for her, be­cause that was never my nat­u­ral body type and I don’t think it’ll be hers ei­ther,” Craw­ford said of Ger­ber in 2015. “Still, I’ll say to her, ‘En­joy carbs while you can.”

The teen at­tended the Fash­ion Los An­ge­les Awards in April.
