Kaia Gerber is learning from the best. In addition to having Cindy Crawford as a mom, the 17-year-old model also gets to call Naomi Campbell her mentor. In a recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live, Naomi said she’s taken pride in mentoring Kaia, who affectionately refers to her as her “auntie.”
“She’s adorable. I’m very proud of Kaia,” Naomi said. The two first connected at the home of fashion designer Azzedine Alaïa, who passed away on Nov. 18, 2017. “I sat with her and her mother at Azzedine Alaïa’s — my late papa who is no longer here — and we sat on the kitchen table and we just went through all the shows she should do and shouldn’t do at the moment, ’cause she’s a baby.” Naomi added, “She has followed everything!”
