Cindy Crawford’s daughter, Kaia, has returned to work as a model at 13 years of age, after causing an uproar over her first professional photo shoot at the tender age of 10.

Crawford, 48, who rose to become one of the world’s top supermodels in the 1980s, started her own career at the age of 16.

After the uproar over her daughter’s Versace shoot in 2012, Crawford vowed not to let her daughter model again professionally until she was 17.

But Kaia will appear in a her first professional shoot since the Versace controversy in the December-January issue of Teen Vogue magazine.

She turned 13 in September.

She’s the younger of two children by Cindy and husband Rande Gerber, a New York City restaurant owner. She has a brother, Presley Walker, who is 15.

The Vogue spread is “Kaia’s “second major photo shoot” as a professional, an article preview notes.

In her Versace shoot, Kaia modeled the brand’s children’s line. But she looked over-sexualized in heavy makeup and a thigh-high skirt.

At the time, Kaia was one of the highest-profile pre- and early-teen models posing for top designer brands. Most of the girls wore adult-style makeup and clothes.

The modeling trend is more pronounced in Europe, where girls as young as 10 pose in racy adult-looking photoshoots and even pose topless.

Anais Gallegher, the 11-year-old daughter of former Oasis singer-songwriter Noel Gallagher was also modeling professionally. And, supermodel Kate Moss’ half-sister Charlotte Moss, known as Lottie, also debuted as a professional model at 13.

The Teen Vogue photos aren’t as risque as Kaia’s Versace spread, but whether they cross the line into oversexualization is a matter of debate.

In preview photos, she keeps her clothes on, but in two shots she peers through her long brunette hair with a come-hither look. In a third photo she poses in a backless, spaghetti-strap cocktail dress that would never get her in the door at her junior high school prom.
