Kaia Gerber isn’t just any 18 year old. Nor did she celebrate her birthday like your average 18 year old would. Last night the model, who turned 18 earlier this week, rang in her born day with an epic fashion moment at the Edition Hotel in New York City. Gerber wore a custom Atelier Versace mini leather zip-slit skirt, a belt with the House’s Medusa buckle, and a bustier with straps criss-crossing across the chest. She finished off the head-turning look with a pair of gladiator heels that laced up to the knee. She was seen arm-in-arm with her friend actor Tommy Dorfman who was every bit the fashion partner in crime in his red knit shift dress and knee-socks.
If Gerber’s bold look is giving you a major case of deja vu, it’s for good reason. The outfit is based on Versace’s Fall 1992 collection—almost a decade before Gerber born! It was titled “Miss S&M,” riffing on fetishwear, and featured a megawatt lineup of gorgeous supermodels. (Pieces from the collection were reissued for Versace Spring 2018.) And while Gerber’s mother Cindy Crawford did not walk the Fall 1992 show, she did indeed wear a Versace bondage look to the MTV Awards in 1992. Talk about two peas in a very chic pod.
