Fashion Icons: Cindy Crawford

22 Jun


There was a time when you couldn’t walk by a newsstand without seeing Cindy  Crawford’s face. From her first Vogue cover in August 1986 to 2000,  Crawford’s mug graced the covers of more than 1,000 magazines. Though she was  part of the original supermodel troupe — made famous by the now iconic Vogue magazine cover in January 1990 that featured  her along with fellow models Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, Linda  Evangelista and Tatjana Patitz — Crawford, with her distinctive beauty mark,  stood out from the pack. Her big hair and curves would win her fans, but she  somehow managed to keep one foot firmly planted in the high-fashion world,  walking the runway for the likes of Dolce & Gabbana, Karl Lagerfeld for  Chanel, and Versace. At a time when many models made a name for themselves by  looking heroin-chic, Crawford’s bodacious-’80s-babe style won her lucrative  endorsement deals with Revlon, which lasted for more than a decade, and Pepsi that made her the top-paid model by 2000 and a  household name. And with her rise to fame came a new image of what a supermodel  should be. As fashion designer Michael Kors once said, “Cindy changed up the  perception of the ‘sexy American girl’ from classic blue-eyed blonde to a more  sultry brunette with brains, charm and professionalism to spare.” These days,  the American beauty is sharing her fashion flair with a furniture collection  with Rooms to Go.
