Cindy Crawford's model daughter Kaia Gerber goes blond

Kaia Gerber is lauded for having her supermodel mom Cindy Crawford's stunning good looks, but the up-and-coming star has taken one drastic step outside of her mother's shadow. Taking to Instagram, the 14-year-old debuted a newly dyed and shortened hairstyle.

Last week the teen shocked her social media followers by debuting a blonde bob but, if you're not a fan, don't worry: it's just a wig. Kaia's experiment proves that, just like 50-year-old Cindy, she can rock pretty much any look.

Kaia Gerber teased a blonde experiment on Instagram

Earlier this year Kaia was announced as the face of the Alexander Wang spring/summer 16 collection and more recently she and Cindy appeared on the cover of Vogue Paris.

In 2015 Kaia opened up about life with a supermodel as a mother, and confessed it's refreshing to know the stars don't look perfect all the time.

While interviewing Cindy in a feature for The Thick, Kaia said: "It's reassuring to know that even Cindy Crawford doesn't wake up looking like 'Cindy Crawford'. That's helped me learn to be happy with myself as I am."

what is life?!! i honestly can't breathe right now. a million thank you's to @vogueparis & @mariotestino!!

Cindy, who shares Kaia with 53-year-old Rande Gerber, confessed at the time that, despite her own fame, she hasn't pressured her daughter to chase a career in the spotlight.

She told Kaia: "Your dad and I want you to be happy – whatever that may mean – so if modelling is something you like and want to continue, I can provide a road map and help you make good choices.

"But we also want to preserve your childhood and let you be a 14-year-old when you're 14. There's no rush."
