Cindy Crawford (born Cynthia Ann Crawford, 20.02.1966)
Cindy Crawford is an American supermodel.
Childhood: Cindy Crawford was born in DeKalb, Illinois. Her parents are Jennifer Sue Crawford-Moluf and John Dan Crawford. When she was 10, her brother died of leukaemia. She was scouted by a photographer aged 16 and subsequently entered the Elite Model Management's Look of the Year contest. After becoming a runner-up, the agency in Chicago agreed to represent her. She graduated as valedictorian from DeKalb High School and her academic achievements were enough to earn her a scholarship to study chemical engineering at Northwestern University. She dropped out to pursue her modelling career and later signed with the Elite New York modelling agency.
Modelling career: Cindy Crawford was a major star in the 80s and 90s and appeared on the cover of Vogue, W, People, Harper's Bazaar, Elle, Cosmopolitan and Allure. She is 5 feet 9 inches and is known for her trademark mole on her upper lip. She has also been known for resembling 70s and 80s model Gia Carangi. She has been in fashion campaigns for Gianni Versace, Escada, Revlon, Ink, Omega, Maybelline and Clairol. She has appeared in several music videos including for George Michael's 'Freedom '90', Jon Bon Jovi's 'Please Come Home For Christmas' and Duran Duran's 'Girl Panic'. In 1991, she donned her iconic red Versace dress at that year's Academy Awards. In 1992, she released her first exercise video 'Cindy Crawford: Shape Your Body' which was followed up by two more videos. Between 1989 and 1995 she hosted MTV's 'House of Style'. In 1995, she was the female lead in 'Fair Game' which was badly received both critically and commercially. In 2001, she appeared in the equally as unsuccessful 'The Simian Line'. In 1988, she made her Playboy debut and appeared in the magazine again later in the year. She quit modeling in 2000 but returned to it in 2011. During her modelling hiatus, she worked on various things including a beauty line 'Meaningful Beauty for Guthy-Renker' and a furniture line 'Cindy Crawford Home Collection'.
Personal life: Cindy Crawford married Richard Gere in 1991 but divorced him in 1995. She married Rande Gerber in 1998 and had two children; Presley Walker and Kaia Jordan. She has done much charity work for cancer organisations and is an honorary board member of the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation.
15 year-old Kaia is also the new face of Marc Jacobs Beauty.
When your mother was basically the face of the nineties, following her footsteps into modelling might seem like a daunting task. But 15-year-old Kaia Gerber, the daughter of original supermodel Cindy Crawford, seems to be doing just fine already, with a top fashion award and a high-profile beauty campaign.

Posing isn't her only talent...
There's been reports recently that Cindy Crawford is planning to retire from the modelling industry as she approaches her fiftieth birthday. There was much surprise at the news, given that she is one of the world's most iconic beauties, and while she soon clarified that it's not actually set in stone, it's important to remember that there's a lot more to this woman than just posing.
Cindy Crawford is super multi-talented
Indeed, modelling is just a part of what makes Cindy Crawford and, even if she does decide to forgo any future magazine shoots, it's likely she'll still be busy enough with other projects. These are just a few of her alternative occupations:

Blake Lively had to clarify some remarks she made about Taylor Swift’s ‘Bad Blood’ music video.
Blake Lively, the 28-year-old Age of Adaline actor and wife of Ryan Reynolds, wasn’t mocking Taylor Swift with her recent Instagram post. Lively posted a picture in which she joked – as she later clarified in good humour – about being part of a music video for John Legend’s cover of Swift single ‘Bad Blood’.

Cast and guests arrive at the opening of new Disney sci-fi adventure.
The 'Tomorrowland' premiere turned out a lot of stars on the red carpet this weekend, with George Clooney bringing along his wife (predictably - this couple seems joined at the hip!) Amal Clooney as well as her angel-faced teenage daughter Mia Alamuddin.

Mr. Clooney was his usual dashing self as he hit the premiere of his latest movie, Disney fantasy 'Tomorrowland', suavely dressed in a black suit and chest-bearing black shirt, while wife Amal took chic to a new level with a youthful black and pink number - complete with shades to block out those rays, of course.
An untouched photography of Cindy Crawford has leaked online. Marie Claire has confirmed the image is from a previous cover shoot but, as it was untouched, is a leak.
Leaked photographs of Cindy Crawford posing in lingerie have been leaked online. The completely untouched image was leaked on Twitter by ITV News Anchor Charlene White on Friday (13th Ferbuary). The photo, which shows Crawford posing in a black bra and matching knickers, was taken at a Marie Claire shoot in 2013. The magazine has confirmed the image is from their magazine and was 100% untouched.

Is this another problem parents need to be concerned about?
Here’s why Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber took their two children out of school this week, when Presley and Kala should have started classes on Monday. In a pre-taped interview with The Today Show, the former model explained that after routine tests found elevated levels of PCBs in window caulking at the school, they did not feel “100% safe” letting their children attend.
Cindy Crawford - when chemistry meets motherly concern.
A little background: PCB is short for Polychlorinated Biphenyls – a group of chemicals that has been shown to act as neurotoxins, cause cancer in humans and animals, as well as disrupt endocrine function. So overall, not a pretty picture.
Must be cool to be rich
Ah, the lifestyles of the rich and famous. Celebrity pals Cindy Crawford, Rande Gerber and George Clooney – the first two are married – built holiday homes next to each other so they could hang out while on vacation in Los Cabos, Mexico.
"We saw this oceanfront lot and thought maybe it made sense to building something," Gerber told the new issue of Architectural Digest magazine. "Our lives go back and forth," Crawford said. "We'll have cocktails at our place and dinner at George's, or vice-versa."

Cindy Crawford has opened up about her divorce from Richard Gere, saying the age gap was too much of an obstacle.
Cindy Crawford has, for the first time, opened up about her divorce from Richard Gere eighteen years ago, citing the age difference as the primary reason for the split. The pair were married for just four years before calling it quits in 1995. "I think a lot of what happened with Richard and I was, I was still 22 and at 22 - as a young woman - I was kind of still figuring out who I was and what I wanted to be and he was already 37," Crawford explained to Oprah Winfrey for an upcoming episode of "Oprah's Master Class."
Crawford talked about the difficulties of dating Gere - then one of the biggest actors in the world - while she was still trying to forge her own career. "I just think your twenties for women is such a time when you're starting to come into your own and feel your own power and connect to your inner strength and it's hard to do that - it's hard to change - in a relationship, because what one person might have signed up for, all of a sudden, you're not that anymore," she said.
However, Crawford credits the Officer And A Gentleman actor for teaching her how to deal with her burgeoning fame. "When I would see how he was with fans when they approached him.. I got to look to him to see how he created boundaries for himself," she said. The model is now married to Rande Gerber, while Gere has been married to Carey Lowell since 2002.

Just what were Clooney and Crawford doing in bed together?
Not what you might be thinking, luckily for their respective partners. George Clooney and Cindy Crawford were in fact filming an advert together for a new brand of Tequila, called Casamigos. George Clooney’s squeeze Stacey Kiebler was in on the act too, though, as was Crawford’s fella Rande Gerber – who just so happens to be one of George’s best mates.
Yahoo’s OMG Insider got the scoop on the ad, and aired a clip which shows the Ocean’s Eleven actor in bed with one of the world’s most famous supermodels. Rande Gerber walks in on his wife in with Clooney and asks “what’s going on?” as Cindy pulls the bed sheets up over her head, to hide her shame. Clooney told OMG Insider that he and Rande have been “BFFs for about 20 years… those guys like to have a good time, they like to party, so they decided one night that they needed their own house tequila.” Apparently the advert was “loosely based” on real events; we’d have loved to have been a fly on the wall at Clooney’s house whenever THAT happened, whatever it was, exactly.
