Who is Cindy Crawford?
Cindy Crawford is an American model, actress, and businesswoman. During the 1980s and 1990s, Crawford was among the most popular supermodels and a ubiquitous presence on magazine covers, runways, and fashion campaigns.
Her years of successful modelling career made her an international celebrity that has led to subsequent actions and business ventures.
Cindy Crawford’s Career
Crawford’s trademark is a mole above her upper lip. She is so closely associated with this physical feature that she appeared in an Australian advertising campaign for flavoured milk featuring a TV commercial wherein she “licked off” her own mole. Her resemblance to model Gia Carangi led her to be known as “Baby Gia”. In 1987, Crawford appeared during the opening credits of the Michael J. Fox film The Secret of My Success. Three years later, she featured alongside top models Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista, Tatjana Patitz and Naomi Campbell on the cover of the January 1990 edition of British Vogue.
Crawford and the other four models subsequently appeared in the video for George Michael’s hit “Freedom ’90” later that year. Subsequently, Crawford played the lost love of Jon Bon Jovi in the 1994 video for his version of “Please Come Home For Christmas”, “John Taylor” in the 2011 video for Duran Duran’s “Girl Panic” (featuring supermodels as the band, including Naomi Campbell as Simon Le Bon), and Headmistress in the 2015 video for Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” as part of a cast including Jessica Alba, Selena Gomez, and fellow models Lily Aldridge, Cara Delevingne, Gigi Hadid, Martha Hunt and Karlie Kloss.
She was frequently featured on the cover of multiple fashion and lifestyle magazines, including Vogue, W, People, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, Cosmopolitan, and Allure. A partial count in 1998 totalled over 500 appearances. Crawford has walked the runway shows for
Chanel, Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, Christian Dior, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors, Todd Oldham, DKNY, and Valentino. Crawford also appeared in many fashion campaigns during her career, including those for Versace, Calvin Klein, Escada, David Yurman, Oscar De La Renta, Balmain, Hermes, Ellen Tracy, Valentino, Bally, Liz Claiborne, Hervé Leger, Halston, Anne Klein, Isaac Mizrahi, Blumarine, Guess, Ink, Gap, and Revlon. She has also worked for Omega, Maybelline, Clairol, Pepsi, and Chilean retail stores Ripley (partner of Macy’s).
In July 1988, she posed nude for Playboy magazine in a shoot by photographer Herb Ritts. In October 1998, Crawford returned to the pages of Playboy for a second nude pictorial, again taken by Ritts. She was ranked number 5 on Playboy’s list of the 100 sexiest stars of the 20th century. A 1997 Shape magazine survey of 4,000 picked her as the second (after Demi Moore) most beautiful woman in the world. In 2002, Crawford was named one of the 50 most beautiful people by People magazine. In her forties, she claimed No. 26 in the 2006 Hot 100 issue of Maxim magazine. She was named No. 3 on VH1’s 40 Hottest Hotties of the 90s and was named one of the “100 Hottest Women of All-Time” by Men’s Health.
The inaugural issue of George, a short-lived political magazine in the 1990s, featured Crawford dressed like George Washington on the cover. In 2005, the American Society of Magazine Editors listed it as the 22nd best magazine cover of the last 40 years.
TV and Film Appearances
Crawford has also been on TV and in films. From 1989 to 1995, Crawford was the host and executive producer of MTV’s House of Style. In the early 1990s, Crawford starred in the Pepsi and Pepsi Stuff advertising. In 1992, she appeared in Pepsi’s Super Bowl commercial, aired during Super Bowl XXVI. Later in 2016, Pepsi released a remake of the commercial, also featuring Crawford. In 1995, Crawford broke into movies as the female lead in the movie Fair Game. Her performance was panned by critics—Leonard Maltin commented “In her acting debut, supermodel Crawford makes a good jogger.” The film was also a financial failure, with expenses of $50 million and $11 million takings at the box office.
In 2001, she costarred as part of an ensemble cast in The Simian Line. Again the film was not successful or critically acclaimed, but Crawford’s acting was not criticized. She has had many lesser roles guest starring on TV and as supporting roles, often playing herself. For example, in 2000, she was one of the celebrities (along with Victoria Silvstedt, Anna Falchi and Megan Gale) playing themselves in the Italian comedy Body Guards – Guardie del Corpo. In the 1990s, Carol Shaw, her make-up artist, named a lipstick colour after Crawford as a part of the Lorac Cosmetics lip-wear line.
Crawford quit full-time modelling in 2000 and now appears only occasionally in fashion magazines. In 2005, Crawford created a line of beauty products with Jean-Louis Sebagh called Meaningful Beauty for Guthy-Renker. Crawford has stated that she regularly receives certain cosmetic procedures, including Botox and vitamin injections. She first saw a plastic surgeon at the age of 28.
In 2005, Crawford launched a new line of furniture under the “Cindy Crawford Home Collection” name. The collection is manufactured by HM Richards Inc. She assisted in the creation of the line by consulting on the features, colours, or styles that fit the needs of families or reflected her own tastes. She also has a furniture line with Raymour & Flanigan and launched a home goods line with J. C. Penney in late 2009.
In 2009, Crawford was one of many celebrities to be photographed by Deborah Anderson for the coffee table book Room 23, produced by philanthropist Diana Jenkins. In addition to appearing in the book, Crawford was the cover model and wrote the dedication. Becoming, a book about Crawford’s life and career co-written by Crawford and Katherine O’Leary, was published in September 2015.
