She's got 1.4 million Instagram followers, is signed to the world's biggest model agency and has a Versace campaign under her belt, so sometimes it's hard to believe that Kaia Gerber is only 15 years old.

Legendary supermodel Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber's daughter has been making waves in showbiz circles for the last two years and has been pursuing modelling work carefully approved by her parents.

But her latest selfie has divided critics for being too sexy for a teenager. Kaia, who has modelled for Marc Jacobs and Alexander Wang, shared a bathroom selfie earlier this week wearing just a bathrobe with the caption, "Uniform".

While most commenters were quick to label her "too young" for such a sultry setting, with one writing: "I love kaia with all my heart and she is gorgeous but she is too young for this types of photos."

"WHY do u always have to make yourself look like a grown woman, when u should look 15 going on 16! Even the outfits chosen for formal events - most look suitable for a 30-yr old...not to mention the heavy makeup. Btw this picture is kinda inappropriate for u to be posting on Instagram. If it was one of the Kardashians i wouldn't bat an eyelid or give a damn..but when it's u...it makes me wonder on the motives of someone your age posting this on social media, like is it attention-seeking," another wrote.

Some were quick to jump to her defence, pointing out that she should be body confident regrdless of her age.

"I think everyone who is commenting negative things about this picture should be ashamed and get a life! You all are NOBODY to say what she should post or how she should dress. And I don't even understand why all this negative comments for this pictures, it's so beautiful and she's so pretty," she said.

"You all the first to post things against bullying, you all the first to say "everyone can do what he/she wants" and then you write this bad things???!!!You all should take your negativity for yourself and please instead of spending time commenting horrible things under a 15-years old girl go out and enjoy your life!"
