The aspiring teenage model, who has already modelled for Versace, doesn't think there is a resemblance to her famous mother, but admitted that the former supermodel is extremely protective.
The 13-year-old beauty said: ''She doesn't want me to start a career too young.''
Kaia, whose father Rande Gerber has been married to Cindy for 16 years, is regularly compared to Cindy, but she told Teen Vogue magazine: ''I don't [see the resemblance].''
Despite aspiring to become a top model, Kaia doesn't think she is very fashionable.
She said: ''I'm not super-glam. I wear jeans and a T-shirt most of the time.''
Cindy previously vowed to help her daughter ''navigate'' the fashion industry, but insisted the youngster was more interested in other things.
Earlier this year, she said: ''[Versace] was a one-off thing. She had fun. She's 12. We'll see what happens. I can at least help her navigate it. She's more interested in singing and dancing. Right now she's interested in Harry Styles.''
While Cindy is comfortable with getting older, she also admitted she envied Kaia's legs.
She said: ''I look at my 12-year-old daughter. She has my legs. I told her that I want my legs back.''
