After a passing newspaper photographer took a picture of a young Crawford pollinating corn on a farm in Illinois, the high school student soon launched her modelling career, becoming one of the most recognisable faces of the supermodel era.
It was a true small town girl turned celebrity story.
Now, decades on from Cindy's start in the industry, her 18-year-old daughter Kaia Gerber is following in her footsteps.
On Tuesday, the young model shared the cover of British Vogue's October issue to her Instagram page.
Bearing an uncanny resemblance to her supermodel mum, the 18-year-old wore a geometric print dress with peach-coloured earrings for the magazine cover shoot.
