Profile Bio Text
Cynthia Ann "Cindy" Crawford (born February 20, 1966) is an American supermodel, MTV television personality, celebrity endorser, cover girl, and actress.
Crawford was born in DeKalb, Illinois, the daughter of Jennifer Sue (née Walker) and John Crawford. Crawford`s trademark is a visible mole (or "beauty mark") on her upper lip. She is so closely associated with this physical feature that she appeared in an advertising campaign for chocolates featuring commercials wherein she "licked off" her own mole. During the beginning of her career, the mole was removed from many of her earlier modeling pictures, including her first Vogue cover.
She was discovered by chance by a newspaper photographer, who noticed then-16-year-old Cindy at work during her summer job of detasseling corn and took a picture of her. The photo and the positive feedback she received were enough to convince her to take up modeling. She entered the John Casablancas Look of the Year contest and was the runner up.
Crawford graduated from DeKalb High School in 1984, as valedictorian with a 4.0 GPA. She won an academic scholarship to study chemical engineering at Northwestern University, which she attended for only one quarter. She dropped out in order to pursue a full-time modeling career. After working for photographer Victor Skrebneski in Chicago, Cindy moved to Manhattan in 1986.
Her brother died at a young age from leukemia, and Crawford has made childhood leukemia a focal point of her charity work, donating proceeds of her calendars to medical research.
From 1989 to 1995, Crawford was host of MTV`s House of Style. In the mid-1990s Crawford starred in famous Pepsi and Pepsi Stuff advertising. In 1995 Crawford took her first movie role in Fair Game. Her performance was panned by critics, and the film was a financial failure, with expenses of $50 million and $11 million takings at the box office. She has had several other minor acting jobs since then, none of which have been commercially or critically successful.
Crawford is just over 5 feet 9 inches (177 cm) tall, with brown hair and eyes. Her measurements are 34"-26"-35 During the 1980s and 1990s, Cindy was among the most popular supermodels, a ubiquitous presence on magazine covers, runways, and in fashion campaigns. In July, 1988, she became the first modern supermodel to pose nude for Playboy magazine, in a shoot by photographer Herb Ritts. In October, 1998 Crawford returned to the pages of Playboy for a second, more revealing nude pictorial.
She has been featured on the cover of many magazines, including Vogue, W, People, Harper`s Bazaar, ELLE, Cosmopolitan, and Allure. Cindy also appeared in many fashion campaigns during her career, including those for Gianni Versace, Escada, Revlon, Ink. She has also worked for Omega, Maybelline, and Clairol. Of her, famous designer Karl Lagerfeld has said: "She is a classical beauty and the all-American dream girl."
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. She continues to provide celebrity endorsement for a variety of projects and was featured as #26 in the 2006 Hot 100 issue of Maxim magazine.
In 2005, Cindy created a beauty product with Dr. Jean-Louis Sebagh called Meaningful Beauty for Guthy-Renker. Though the infomercials for the product claim that her youthful skin is due to the product, she has admitted to recieving cosmetic procedures including botox, collegen, and vitamin injections starting when she was 29.
In 2008, on VH1, Crawford was ranked number 3 on the list of the "40 Hottest Hotties of the 90`s".
She was married to the actor Richard Gere between 1991 and 1995. She is currently married to Rande Gerber, with whom she has two children, Presley Walker and Kaia Jordan. She currently resides in Malibu, California.
In 2007, Cindy became an official supporter of the Ronald McDonald House Charities and is a member of their celebrity board, called the Friends of RMHC.
