Gerber was spotted with a date at her birthday party at the Midtown Manhattan Edition Hotel in a striking leather Versace outfit. One rendered all the more notable because it was so reminiscent of a sexy number her mother wore to the MTV Video Music Awards in 1992.
The shorts, straps, gold accents, and lace were all strikingly similar to her mom's outfit from near 30 years ago.
In a video made for Vogue UK, Gerber talked about her birthday and what it means to her. She said that being 18 implies independence. "Age is a notion," she said, "I believe it's a label on you."
She also said, "I feel a lot more confident going into being...an adult."
If her birthday suit is any indication, Kaia Gerber is being 100 percent real about that.
