Original Supermodel: Cindy Crawford

 Cindy Crawford is one of the original supermodels of the 1990’s. Cindy Crawford was born Cynthia Ann Crawford on February 20, 1966, in De Kalb, Illinois. Cindy's big break came when she was 16 years old after meeting with a newspaper photographer who took her picture. After her picture was taken she received a lot of positive feedback and then decided to take up modeling. She signed with Elite Model Management in Chicago, immediately becoming a success. In 1986 Cindy decided to move to New York City to pursue her modeling career even further.

Two years later, Cindy was sought after by the likes of Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and Elle for both covers and photo shoots. She also became a regular feature on the runway, walking for labels such as Ralph Lauren, Gianni Versace, Michael Kors, Chanel, Valentino, Christian Dior and Dolce & Gabbana among others.
In 1988, Cindy made history as the first supermodel to appear in Hugh Hefner's magazine Playboy. Cindy later landed contracts for Pepsi, Kay Jewelers and Revlon. In 1995, she decided to expand her modeling career and landed a role in the film Fair Game, co-starring William Baldwin.
After having a successful career as a supermodel, Cindy has decided to stay out of the limelight and now concentrates on her family. Cindy has a son named Presley Walker Gerber born on July 2, 1999 and a daughter named Kaya Jordan Gerber born on September 3, 2001.
