It's easy to forget that there's a fourth member of the Gerber-Crawford family -- the 55-year-old patriarch Rande Gerber. The New York Times has a major profile on the Gerber family, with a special focus on Rande Gerber, also a former model. 

It's not an exaggeration to write "Maybe the gods were jealous", in writing about the Gerber-Crawford family: real-deal supermodel Cindy Crawford; her 16-year-old daughter, Kaia Gerber; 18-year-old son, Presley Gerber and dad Rande Gerber.

As the new brand ambassadors for Omega, the Gerber family was center stage in Paris last November. 

Mr. Gerber, a former model, took the mic and, with the modesty of a supporting player, thanked Omega for employing his family. “Because now I can retire,” he said, to polite chuckles. “They’re all working.”

Kaia Gerber Launches OMEGA Trésor Watch After Peru Visit For Orbis International Flying Eye Hospital

In September 2017, Cindy Crawford's daughter Kaia Gerber and son Presley Gerber joined Cindy as brand ambassadors for OMEGA luxury watches. Cindy Crawford has worked with OMEGA for over a decade. On occasion, husband and dad Rande Gerber drops in for a family photo.

In these new black and whites shot by Peter Lindbergh, Kaia Gerber showcases Trésor, a collection of nine watches aimed specifically at women. The watches come in 36mm and 39mm sizes and are available in the brand's signature 18k rose gold case or stainless steel, with each piece adorned with 39 diamonds on the bezel. The collection is inspired by the original Trésor collection which was first launched in 1949, however these new pieces come with a custom mirrored caseback which the brand says is to give "women a reminder of who they are and the natural charisma they possess."

Supermodels Lara Stone and Natasha Poly headline Balmain's Fall/Winter 2017.18 , captured by Balmain's creative director Olivier Rousteing. Male models showing off the menswear are Jon Kortajarena, Marlon Teixeira, Ton Heukels and Presley Gerber. The less sizzling girl gaggle shots include Grace Boll, Aleyna Fitzgerald, Alexina Graham, and Valerie Kaufman. 

I wanted to photograph this campaign to have the images directly reflect my vision of Balmain’s latest creations, as well as my love for the singular beauty of the city I call home. I hope you are as happy with the results as I am.” – Olivier Rousteing
