Kaia Gerber’s Red Dress In Cannes Was A Nod To Her Mother

Week two of the 75th Annual Cannes Film Festival is under way and stars brought their fashion A-game again in lavish outfits. From Bella Hadid’s vintage Versace gown to Kristen Stewart’s Chanel jumpsuit, stars are providing major style moments that can be used as inspiration for any formal events you have on the calendar this summer. The latest star to make a show-stopping entrance at Cannes was Kaia Gerber in a red dress, who resembled her mother Cindy Crawford while posing for the cameras.

On May 25, Gerber attended the screening of Elvis to support her boyfriend Austin Butler. For the occasion, the couple wore custom Celine ensembles that felt sophisticated and polished. Gerber radiated glamor in the fiery, form-fitting silk dress with a halter-neck design and an open-back detail. Her gown from the French fashion house had a special meaning behind it, as she graced the Cannes carpet while wearing her mother’s favorite color: red.

Crawford has sported the bold hue at many star-studded events in the past, including the First Annual Blockbuster Entertainment Awards in 1995, the Second Annual Revlon’s Unforgettable Women Contest in 1990, and, most recently, at the 2018 Met Gala. Ahead, you’ll see just how similar Gerber and her mother look — the resemblance is truly uncanny.
