British Vogue's Edward Enninful is happy to see Kaia Gerber "in the trenches" with other models.
The rising fashion star, who is the daughter of Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber, has already landed campaigns for the likes of Versace, Jimmy Choo, and Karl Lagerfeld.
British Vogue editor-in-chief Enninful also tapped Gerber to be on the cover of the October 2019 issue of the publication, and in an accompanying article, praised the model's commitment and professionalism.
"That Kaia has become one of the brightest faces in modelling is a personal delight to me," he wrote. "I have known Cindy Crawford, her supermodel mother, since the '90s, so it's wonderful to now work with her daughter, who is as driven, hardworking and beautiful as Cindy is. It always pleases me that, every season, despite coming from privilege, I see Kaia in the trenches with the other models, doing show after show, always on time and with a kind word for everyone. That's the way to do it."
In the cover image, Gerber poses in a black and white ensemble from Valentino. Guido Palau and Pat McGrath were behind her hair and make-up, Joe McKenna was the stylist, Jin Soon Choi was in charge of the manicure, with Steven Meisel helming the photoshoot.
And in a post sharing the news on her Instagram page, Gerber commented that the prestigious gig was the "best" birthday present, as she celebrates turning 18 on 3 September.
"October issue of @britishvogue by #stevenmeisel is out! thank you @edward_enninful for the best birthday present, and to everyone involved #joemckenna, @guidopalau, @patmcgrathreal, and @jinsoonchoi," she gushed.
The October issue of British Vogue hits newsstands on 6 September.
