Cindy Crawford worries about the pressure daughter Kaia Gerber is under to be thin
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.”
