Jump To Cindy Crawford's Stats
Not only is Cindy Crawford one of the sexiest babes of the 90s, the Illinois native was valedictorian of her high school class and earned a scholarship to the tough Northwestern University. Okay, she decided that after one quarter to go full time into modeling, but she has got both the looks and the smarts to go with it.
She earned her way on the catwalk after newspaper photographer took her picture when she was working as a 16-year-old. It didn't take to long for the big modeling agencies in New York to knock down her door. He signed with the Elite Modeling agency. Once she made the decision to quit college and pursue modeling full time, she was jetted around the world for runway work and for magazine covers.
Crawford has graced the cover of hundreds of the most well-respected fashion magazines. He has posed for Vogue, Glamor, W, People, Elle, Harper's Bazaar and Cosmopolitan beside others. The big European fashion houses have run extensive campaigns designed around her participation.
Since her retirement from the modeling world in 2000, Crawford has been busy building her own brand. She endorses a line of fine furniture and cosmetics. She also attaches her name to a line of household goods in partnership with J.C. Penny.
Crawford has twice appeared in a Playboy magazine pictorial. She posed for photographer Herb Ritts in 1988 and then again with the same photographer in 1998. Although Crawford has tried her mole-laden smile for the silver screen, her movie Fair Game was a commercial and critical flop – which seems to have kept her away from trying that again.
