Now, at the tender age of ten, she has made her modelling debut.
Posing for the very first Young Versace ad, Kaia appears to have inherited her mother's confidence in front of the camera.

Wearing highlights from the designer line, which caters to children up to the age of 12, she stares boldly at the lens with her hands in her pockets.
Given that her mother was a muse to the late Gianni Versace in the Nineties, it seems Kaia was a natural choice for the label - and Ms Crawford could not be more proud that her daughter is following in her footsteps.
She said in a press release: 'I'm so thrilled that Kaia was chosen to be part of the first Young Versace Campaign.
'I have so many fond memories of the times I spent with Gianni and Donatella. There is something so very special about the House of Versace.'
She added that she was present throughout the shoot, describing it as a 'fantastic experience'.

'I am so proud of her,' she revealed.
The label's creative director, Donatella Versace, said Kaia has inherited all of her mother's modelling magic.
She said: 'Like her mother, Kaia has a very special gift. The camera really, really loves her.
'Having Cindy on-set for the shoot took me back to all the amazing Avedon shoots we worked on together. It was such a special treat watching Kaia walk in her mother's footsteps!'
The campaign was shot by famed fashion photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. It follows the opening of the first Young Versace boutique in Milan, Italy.
