Kaia Gerber steps out in NYC… after chatting about her mother Cindy Crawford, brother Presley, comparison culture, and wanting to shave her head

Kaia Gerber stepped out for a casual stroll in Manhattan on Monday after getting a hot beverage to-go.

The 20-year-old DNA Model was dressed conservatively in a chambray shirt over a white T-shirt, black slacks and Adidas sneakers.

Kaia was likely missing her boyfriend since December – Elvis star Austin Butler – who began his role as the villainous Feyd-Rautha in Denis Villeneuve’s Dune: Part Two on Monday overseas.

That same evening, Gerber joined Stranger Things star Maya Hawke at PUBLIC Hotel in Manhattan’s Lower East Side for the wrap party of her debut studio album, Thérèse, due out this fall.

It’s unclear if the LA native will be returning home to attend the sold-out premiere of The Palisades this Thursday during LA Shorts Fest.

Kaia portrays Alex in Carissa Gallo’s 13-minute short film, and several members of the cast and crew got matching shell tattoos on their backs.

‘The Palisades had a lot of sea references,’ Gerber explained to ELLE UK on Monday.

‘But I’ve definitely slowed down on getting tattoos because it adds so much time at the beginning of a modeling job to cover them all up, plus I want to spare my parents the anxiety it gives them! At least I wasn’t the first child to get a tattoo, my brother [Presley] got one first so I was like as long as he has more than me I can’t be the problem child.’

The Alexander McQueen catwalker said her beauty inspiration comes from French New Wave cinema as well as her famous mother, nineties supermodel Cindy Crawford, who taught her to never pluck her eyebrows.

‘My mom always just said less is more, and I’ve tried to live by that,’ Kaia noted.

‘I had my mom too, not only [to] look up to, but go to for [to] advice. I’d sit and watch her do her make-up. She’s a lot better at it than I am because she worked during the nineties. Now, no one knows how to do their own make-up. I’ve definitely learned a lot from watching her.’

'Sold out!' It's unclear if the LA native will be returning home to attend the premiere of The Palisades this Thursday during LA Shorts Fest

Gerber – who boasts 8.3M Instagram/Twitter followers – admitted it’s easy to fall into the trap of ‘comparison culture’ on social media.

‘It’s definitely important to be aware of how much time you spend on social media and what you’re using it for,’ the American Horror Story actress advised.

‘If it’s to compare yourself to other people that can be really tough on your self-esteem. Everyone’s just showing their highlight reel which can make you feel really bad. I think you have to learn what your own threshold for it is – mine’s quite low!’

Kaia started her modeling career with long brunette locks and she’s since been blonde, pink, and short.

‘I always have an itch to do something to my hair. It’s like an actual personality trait of mine where every morning I wake up and think, “What if I shaved my head today?”‘ Gerber teased.

‘Most days I tell myself to “Sssh” but some days I don’t and that’s when I end up cutting my own bangs… It’s still growing out. But it’s just hair, it grows back.’

The pro-choice supporter will next begin work on her recurring role as a manicurist called Mitzi in Tate Taylor’s 10-episode comedy series Mrs. American Pie for Apple TV+.
