The 18-year-old beauty scooped the coveted Model of the Year title at the 2018 Fashion Awards when she was just 17, and she admitted it left her panicking about what else she could achieve even though she's still in her teens. 

"I was quite worried because I thought 'oh my God, what do I do now?'" she told Grazia Magazine.

Kaia, who is the daughter of Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber, was just 10 years old when she made her modelling debut and didn't even realise it was work. 

"It was for Versace Kids and I loved it, but I had no idea what I was doing," she said. "I didn't even realise it was a job. I was like, 'this is work?'" she added.
