HBD Kaia Gerber—See the Model's Best Beauty Looks On and Off the Runway

Cue the sound of the happy birthday song, Kaia Gerber just turned 17! Though supermodel blood ran through her veins before we said our first words and despite the fact that she's walked more catwalks than any teen on the face of the earth, Kaia keeps it haute and humble. To celebrate the over-achieving offspring of our forever icon and supermodel Cindy Crawford, we rounded up Kaia's best beauty looks on and off the runway—keep scrolling for the chronicles of Kaia.

Mini Cindy

If we didn't know any better, we'd think this was Cindy Crawford circa the 80's. We know one thing's for sure: Kaia's sleek topknot will trend for decades to come.

When we were dressing up as Cinderella, Kaia was doing up Halloween in a Michelle Pfeiffer mane, Scarface style.

From the straight 'do to the sterling hoops, this supermodel can do bad all by herself.

She could make unbrushed strands a hairstyle we'd mimic any day.

Only Kaia could sport a chunky topknot and not look like a teletubby.

Space is calling—they want their model citizen back. When we saw Alien Kaia on the Moschino runway, we knew she was superhuman.
