Kaia Gerber (opens in new tab) is officially all grown up.

The model celebrated her 18th birthday Friday night with a party at the Edition Hotel in New York City (appropriately, during New York Fashion Week).

Kaia paid homage (opens in new tab) to her famous mom, supermodel Cindy Crawford (opens in new tab), with her ensemble for the big night: A black, strappy, bondage-inspired look that was a perfect call back to Cindy's iconic 1992 MTV Video Music Awards look.

Even though Kaia's take on the look (opens in new tab) included a leather mini skirt and knee-high boots and Cindy's featured a long, ankle-grazing skirt, the bodices were nearly identical. Both looks centered on a black bustier with criss-crossed straps and gleaming, gold-toned buckle accents.

Kaia accessorized her take on the statement-making look with a black clutch and wore her layered bob in a style that can only be described as "voluminous."
