Kaia Gerber Wore Her Birthday Suit to Celebrate Turning 19 Years Old
Save for a pair of thigh-high boots.
This week, Kaia Gerber, daughter of Cindy Crawford, celebrated her 19th birthday in the most supermodel way possible. In honor of turning another year older, the rising runway star posted a nude photo of herself from the September issue of Vogue Japan, shot by iconic photography pair Lugi and Iango.
"Nineteen," she captioned the NSFW image, in which she's completely naked — save for a pair of black thigh-high boots and a star emoji barely covering her breast. In the photo, many of her tattoos are also visible, including one of her most recent additions: an angel right above her ribcage.
Gerber's famous pals flooded her comments section with birthday wishes. Lena Dunham wrote, "Happy birthday queen, while fashion designer Jeremy Scott added that the model was his "muse." Taking her tribute to her own Instagram feed, Karlie Kloss posted a slideshow of images of the supermodel duo. "Happy happy birthday baby K❣️You are such a light in this world and I am so SO proud of you," she wrote, adding: "Your energy, brains, beauty and enormous heart are cherished by everyone who is lucky enough to know you. Here’s to another trip around the sun @kaiagerber."
Kaia's mom also joined in on the virtual birthday love. Sharing a throwback photo of Kaia as a little girl wearing a princess costume, Crawford penned a sweet message, writing: "Happy birthday to my not so little princess! Wishing you health and happiness and the confidence to be the highest version of yourself. So proud of the woman you are becoming!"
While Kaia didn't reveal any birthday plans, earlier this week, she had a pre-celebratory dinner with Euphoria star Jacob Elordi and her dog at Nobu — where else?
