Cindy Crawford is a world-famous supermodel, 5?9” with brown hair and brown eyes, whose trademark is a visible mole on her face. After dropping out of the chemical engineering program at Northwestern to pursue modeling full-time, Crawford worked with photographer Victor Skrebneski and moved to Manhattan in 1986. During the 1980s and 1990s, she became one of the most popular supermodels, a ubiquitous presence on magazine covers, runways, and in fashion campaigns. She was the first modern supermodel to pose nude for Playboy magazine, in a shoot by photographer Herb Ritts.
She has been featured on the cover of more than 600 magazines worldwide 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, etc. Of her, famous designer Karl Lagerfeld has said: “She is a classical beauty and the all-American dream girl.” She was nicknamed “Baby Gia” when she entered the modeling industry because of her resemblance to late supermodel, Gia Carangi.
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.
