Cindy Crawford worries about her daughter entering the competitive world of modelling

Although Kaia, 14, is following in her supermodel mother's footsteps and has already appeared in Italian Vogue and Carine Roitfield's prestigious CR Fashion Book, Cindy, 49, frets about how young models are treated and the body insecurities that come with the job.

She told Net-a-Porter's The Edit: "Today, models are expected to be so tiny and I worry about that for her, because that was never my natural body type and I don't think it'll be hers either. Still, I'll say to her, 'Enjoy carbs while you can!'"

However, Cindy thinks Kaia will cope because she is much "more worldly" than Cindy was as a teenager.

She said: "Kaia's blossoming into such a beautiful young woman and I really want to let her shine. I don't want her to feel in competition with me, although I'll tease her, and say, 'You have my old hair, give it back!' Or, 'Give me back my legs!'

"But she'll be fine... She's much more together and worldly than I was at her age."
