Supermodel spawn Kaia Gerber has entered the group chat.
As it turns out, the Cindy Crawford doppelgänger is unbothered by the nepo baby label. “I won’t deny the privilege that I have,” Gerber declared during a story for Elle wherein she graced the magazine’s February 2023 cover. “Even if it’s just the fact that I have a really great source of information and someone to give me great advice, that alone I feel very fortunate for,” she added. “My mom always joked, ‘If I could call and book a Chanel campaign, it would be for me and not you.’ But I also have met amazing people through my mom whom I now get to work with,” she confessed.
Still, Gerber is careful to point out that having famous and accomplished parents only gets someone so far. While she acknowledged that “nepotism is prevalent,” she noted that, “No artist is going to sacrifice their vision for someone’s kid. That just isn’t how art is made.” She added, “Also, no one wants to work with someone who’s annoying, and not easy to work with, and not kind,” or in other words, nepo babies should be mindful of checking any and all possible big egos at the door. Nepo babies: take heed.
