Who Is Cindy Crawford | Cindy Crawford Model
During the 1980s and 1990s, Crawford was among the most popular supermodels and a ubiquitous presence on magazine covers, runways, and in fashion campaigns. She was repeatedly and frequently featured on the cover of many magazines, including Vogue, W, People, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, Cosmopolitan, and Allure.
Crawford has walked the runways for Chanel, Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, Christian Dior, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors, Todd Oldham, DKNY, and Valentino. She has 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.
The widespread appeal of Cindy Ann Crawford lay in looks that appealed to both men and women. Her superb body, with its classic 34B-24-35 measurements, attracted men, while her all-American looks and trademark facial mole stopped her short of seeming an unattainable ideal of perfect beauty, and thus she was not threatening to women. Furthermore, her athletic physique was in distinct contrast to many of the waif-like models, such as Kate Moss, who were prevalent during the 1990s.
Crawford has also been on TV and in films. From 1989 to 1995, Crawford was a host of MTV’s House of Style. In the early 1990s, she starred in the Pepsi and Pepsi Stuff advertisement. In 1992, she appeared in Pepsi’s Super Bowl commercial, aired during Super Bowl XXVI and in 1995, she broke into movies as the female lead in the movie Fair Game. In 2001, she co-starred as part of an ensemble cast in The Simian Line.
It is Lenny Kravitz who is said to have been instrumental in persuading her to make her catwalk comeback in Milan in July 2000 – for Roberto Cavalli, for free. In 2004 she launched an anti-ageing beauty range with Dr Sebagh, called Meaningful Beauty Famously down to earth.
Cindy Crawford Phenomenon
Crawford stepped off the remote pedestal of a celebrity mannequin or a glamorous cover girl when she began to assert her personality before the public. She gave interviews in which she discussed her middle-class childhood, her parents’ divorce, and the trauma of her brother’s death from leukemia.
These confessions humanized her image and made her approachable, and she went on to host MTV’s House of Style, a talk show that stressed fashion and allowed her to conduct interviews that connected with a younger market. The Cindy Crawford phenomenon continued with her involvement in fitness videos, TV specials, commercial endorsements, and film (Fair Game, 1995, was dismissed both by audiences and critics, but did little to diminish her popularity.)
Meanwhile, her already high profile increased with her brief 1991 marriage to actor Richard Gere. The couple was hounded by rumors of homosexuality, fueled after Crawford appeared on a controversial Vanity Fair cover with the openly lesbian singer k.d. lang. In 1998, Crawford wed entrepreneur and nightclub impresario Rande Gerber.
After the arrival of Cindy Crawford, it was not uncommon to see models promoting a vast array of products beyond fashion and cosmetics. Crawford herself signed a multi-million dollar deal to promote Pepsi, as well as her more conventional role with Revlon. Her status was so high that ABC invited her to host a special on teen sex issues with the provocative title of Sex with Cindy Crawford.
The opening of the Fashion Café theme restaurant in the mid-1990s marked the height of the super model sensation sparked by Crawford. The café’s association with Crawford and other high profile models revealed the extent to which the “super model” had become a major figure in American culture.
By the end of the 20th century, Crawford was still the best known of these celebrities due to the combination of her wholesomely erotic image and her professional diversification through the many available media outlets.
