As the world daydreams about frolicking in the great outdoors, supermodel Kaia Gerber talks about the beauty of staying in, learning, and growing with the gift of time.

At 18, she has walked runways from Milan to New York, played muse for top designers, worked with beauty industry stalwarts like Pat McGrath and Sam McKnight on frequent rotation, and has nearly six million people wanting to know what she’s up to on Instagram. She’s also nurturing her teenage self via her book club, fostering puppies, chopping and colouring her hair, and even turning into her own tattooist. Here, you’ll see Kaia Gerber being one with the daisies and bathing in sunshine for Marc Jacobs’s latest Daisy Love Eau So Sweet campaign. The supermodel reminisces about that bright day in April of last year: “I was fortunate enough to work with two of my friends, Meghan Roche and Adut Akech, so all the laughs and smiles you see in the campaign are real. We were having a great time, which is perfect because Daisy is about happy moments shared with friends.” She goes deeper into the moments that make her shine, including her mum Cindy Crawford’s classic glow trick.

KEEPING IT SHORT

“I have always wanted to go short with my hair and finally made the decision last year. I’ve been playing around with the length here and there and even got a men’s cut just before the stay-at-home orders were issued. It used to be cute, but now that it’s growing out it looks like a mullet. But I’m rolling with it.”
