It was just over 12 months ago when Kaia Gerber made her red carpet debut with ex-boyfriend Jacob Elordi. At the same event, the annual Academy Museum Gala, and with a new boy (sadly not in attendance) the model walked the red carpet overnight in possibly her best red carpet look yet.

Styled by Danielle Goldberg, Gerber stepped out in a Maison Alaïa by Pieter Mulier sheer turtle-neck top and a draped skirt from the Spring/Summer 2023 runway. The vampy number was a fitting ode to Fall style and Halloween at that.

To finish the ensemble Gerber wore long honeyed locks with a deep side part (further solidifying the tricky trend) courtesy of hairstylist, Bryce Scarlett. Makeup, which featured a perfect nude lip and a glamorous violet eyeshadow, was by Raoúl Alejandre.

She was a spitting image of her supermodel mother Cindy Crawford with many people in the comment section agreeing. “Wow at first glance I thought it was Cindy,” one user commented. Another added, “At first, I thought it was Cindy Crawford.”

We wouldn’t blame anyone for the brief confusion in identity, after all the model-cum-actress has leaned into ’90s glamour of late. At her 21st birthday last month Gerber shared a series of snaps to her Instagram story with a bouncy blow wave and smoky eye. Something that was signature in Crawford’s beauty repertoire.

Gerber was joined by the likes of Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas and Lily Collins who attended the dinner event on Saturday evening. It was also the location of a reconciliation between Hailey Bieber and Selena Gomez who were photographed together for the first time.
