What a week Kaia Gerber is having. Cindy Crawford‘s mini-me turned 16 and got her driver’s license. Those two things would be a big deal on their own, but then she went on to make her debut at New York Fashion Week. Of course, her model mama wouldn’t miss it — and it was an event celebrated by the entire genetically blessed Crawford/Gerber family.

What a week Kaia Gerber is having. Cindy Crawford‘s mini me turned 16 and got her driver’s license. Those two things would be a big deal on their own. But then she went on to make her debut at New York Fashion Week. Of course, her model mama wouldn’t miss it — and it was an event celebrated by the entire genetically blessed Crawford/Gerber family.

She’s smiling inside! Kaia made her long-awaited runway debut at NYFW on Thursday as she strutted her stuff at the Calvin Klein show. “CALVIN KLEIN! there are no words to describe how I feel, I love you endlessly Raf!” the teen wrote, giving a shout-out to the label’s new chief creative officer, Raf Simons.

Kaia posted a second photo of her walk to model superstardom, writing, “I’m excited I swear.” She’s already got the catwalk pout down, doesn’t she? (Photo: Kaia Gerber via Instagram Stories)

Kaia Gerber and Cindy Crawford

The teen celebrated her modeling milestone with her mama, Cindy Crawford, who became a household name in the ’90s thanks in part to her work with the Calvin Klein label. “Celebrating w/mama,” she captioned the selfie. (Photo: Kaia Gerber via Instagram Stories)

That was just her first show. She also walked for Alexander Wang, showing off her long legs. “Alex was one of the first people to believe in me,” she wrote. “Your support means everything… I LOVE YOU and cannot tell you how grateful I am.” (Photo: Kaia Gerber via Instagram)

And who could say no to Rihanna? Not this RiRi fan. “FENTYXPUMA! no one does it like you @badgalriri, the coolest ever,” she wrote. (Photo: Kaia Gerber via Instagram)

Kaia’s whole fam was out in full force to support her, including dad Rande Gerber and brother Presley Gerber, also a model, who posted this. “This is my f***in sis. First show down,” he wrote. (Photo: Presley Gerber via Instagram Stories)

Kaia Gerber and Karlie Kloss

Kaia has shared some behind-the-seams shots from fashion week. Here she is getting a lift from her “big sis” Karlie Kloss — or should we rename her Karlie “Muscles” Kloss? (Photo: Kaia Gerber via Instagram)

Kaia Gerber and Lulu

Obviously, robes are an NYFW staple. (All those outfit changes!) Here she’s donning another one as she hangs with fellow model Lulu preshow. “another bathrobe @calvinklein,” she wrote. Sorry, Kaia — that not just another bathrobe. (Photo: Kaia Gerber via Instagram)

The teen is basically all over NYC this week. She also attended Daily Front Row’s Fashion Media Awards — and later shared a snap of her look. “Last night,” she wrote. (Photo: Kaia Gerber via Instagram)
