She's already modelled for Versace, now the streets are her runway.

It's not often that we're jealous of an 11-year-old's style, but Cindy Crawford's daughter Kaia is an exception to the rule. At 47, her mother is one of the most celebrated beauties of our generation and it looks like her daughter is following in her footsteps.

She made headlines in January last year when she starred in a Young Versace campaign at the age of 10, but her model mum insists that it was just a once-off and her daughter won't be following her down the catwalk anytime soon. "She liked it, but she also saw that it's hard work. When we left the shoot, it wasn't like, 'Oh, I can't wait to do that again.' It was like, 'That was kinda hard!'" Cindy recalled.. "The first 10 snaps are really fun and then it's work. There’s a reason they call it a job."

If these pictures are anything to go by, Kaia might have different ideas. The daughter of Cindy and restaurateur Rande Gerber, she performed an impromptu dance when out and about with her mother, after finishing production of 13 the Musical at the Malibu Civic Auditorium. She was wearing full makeup for the part, a crop top and purple maxi skirt - looking stylish beyond her mere 11 years.
