One of the most iconic models in the industry, Cindy Crawford has just announced that she plans to retire when she turns 50 this month! As a big fan of hers, this news was shocking to me. She just recently starred in Balmain’s 2016 Spring Campaign and posed for a swimsuit shoot in Porter.
While we will all miss her, she’s left such a strong legacy. We will never forget her and that iconic beauty mark. Crawford’s influence in the fashion industry will last for years to come; she even has an heir to continue her legacy. Her 14-year old daughter, Kaia, is likely to be just as successful as Cindy has been and I personally cannot wait to see where Kaia’s career takes her. As we say farewell to Cindy’s modeling days, let’s look back at some of her most memorable moments:
The 90’s were an incredible time for Cindy. Her Versace dress at the 1991 Oscars was a major fashion moment and spurred thousands of look alike dresses to be made.
In 1992, Cindy posed for the Capezio Campaign and Vogue Italia. The blonde pieces in her hair in the Capezio Campaign became iconic and women all over the country were flocking to their hairdresser to look more like Cindy. Her Vogue Italia shoot is definitely one of my favorites. I absolutely love this photo from her hair to her facial expression. I love it all. Everything about this shoot said “fun and confident.”
Thanks for changing the face of the industry, Cindy. We love you!
