Born 1966 in DeKalb, Illinois, American model and actress Cindy Crawford was among the most popular supermodels during the 1980s and 1990s and a ubiquitous presence on magazine covers, runways, and in fashion campaigns. She was repeatedly and frequently featured on the cover of many magazines, including Vogue, W, People, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, Cosmopolitan, and Allure.
A partial count in 1998 totalled over 500 appearances. Crawford has walked the runways for Chanel, Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, Christian Dior, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors, Todd Oldham, DKNY, and Valentino. She also appeared in many fashion campaigns during her career, including those for Versace, Calvin Klein, Escada, David Yurman, Oscar De La Renta, Balmain, Hermes, Ellen Tracy, Valentino, Bally, Liz Claiborne, Hervé Leger, Halston, Anne Klein, Isaac Mizrahi, Blumarine, Guess, Ink, Gap, and Revlon, and has worked for Omega, Maybelline, Clairol, Pepsi, and Chilean retail stores Ripley (partner of Macy’s).
Crawford quit full-time modeling in 2000 and now appears only occasionally in fashion magazines. In 2005, she created a line of beauty products with Jean-Louis Sebagh called Meaningful Beauty for Guthy-Renker.
