Her early life and career beginnings

Cindy was born to Dan Crawford and Jennifer Sue Crawford. She has two sisters, Chris and Danielle, and a late brother, Jeffery.

She attended DeKalb High School in 1984 as a valedictorian and earned an academic scholarship to study chemical engineering at Northwestern University in Illinois. Her academic career was short-lived when she dropped out to pursue a modeling career.

After doing minor fashion works and working with photographer Victor Skrebneski in Chicago, she relocated to New York City in 1986, where Elite Model Management signed her.

Her professional career life

Cindy’s modeling career took off with lightning speed, featuring famous top models and appearing in International magazine covers. The highly sought-after model was regularly on Elle, Cosmopolitan, Vogue, Allure, W, People, Harper’s Bazaar, and the likes.

She was no stranger to walking the runway. She graced the runway shows for Versace, Chanel, Dolce and Gabbana, DKNY, Valentino, Michael Kors, Calvin Klein, Dior, to mention but a few.

The irresistible beauty of her time appeared in uncountable fashion campaigns, including for Calvin Klein, Versace, Hermes, Escada, Guess, Gap, Ink, and literally for other international brands. She starred in advertisements for Pepsi and in Pepsi’s Super Bowl Commercial that aired in 1992.

Cindy Crawford was not amongst models who shy away from posing nudes, at least not with a sexy body like hers. She posed nude for Playboy magazine twice, by photographer Herb Ritts, and was ranked number 5 on Playboy’s list of the 100 sexiest stars of the 20th century.

Her collaboration in 1992 with Radu Teodorescu geared towards getting back in shape was criticized but came out victorious. She followed up with more fitness videos aimed at new mothers and a shorter fitness video for children.

Cindy Crawford also made it onscreen, featuring and starring in television, films, music videos. She hosted and executive-produced MTV’s House of Style.

All good things come to an end. Cindy quit her modeling career in 2000 after a fulfilling and thriving journey and began focusing on her business ventures. She created a line of beauty products, launched a line of furniture in 2005 and
has a home goods line with J. C Penney.

Her charity works

Cindy Crawford’s charity work revolves around childhood leukemia, the cause of her younger brother’s death. Since she refers to her late younger brother as the fourth most influential person in her life, she has dedicated herself to donating to medical research and the hospital that treated her brother Jeff. She also contributes to other hospitals and medical research.

Cindy’s personal life

Cindy and actor Richard Gere married in 1991 and divorced in 1995. She remarried businessman and former model Rande Gerber on May 29, 1998. They have two children who are into modeling.
