Cindy Crawford

Cynthia Ann "Cindy" Crawford (born February 20, 1966) is a former American
model. Known for her trademark mole just above her lip, Crawford has adorned hundreds
of magazine covers throughout her career. She was named #3 on VH1's 40 Hottest
Hotties of the 90s. Her success at modeling made her a celebrity that has led to roles in
television and film, and to work as a spokesperson.
During the 1980s and 1990s, Cindy Crawford was among the most popular supermodels,
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 400 appearances.Crawford also appeared in many fashion campaigns
during her career, including those for Gianni Versace, Escada, Revlon, Ink. She has also
worked for Omega, Maybelline, and Clairol.
In 1990, Cindy appeared in the video for George Michael's "Freedom '90" alongside other
models like Christy Turlington, Tatjana Patitz and Naomi Campbell. She also played the
lost love of Jon Bon Jovi in the video for his 1994 version of "Please Come Home For
Christmas."
In 1992, Cindy - through GoodTimes Home Video and her company Craw Daddy
Productions - made an exercise video with Radu Teodorescu named Cindy Crawford:
Shape Your Body; although criticised by some for being unsafe, it was hugely successful
and led to two equally lucrative followups, Cindy Crawford: The Next Challenge in 1993
(again with Radu) and Cindy Crawford: A New Dimension in 2000 (the latter, made with
fitness expert Kathy Kaehler and produced not long after Cindy gave birth to her first
child, was aimed at new mothers getting back into shape). In 2001 Cindy also made a
shorter fitness video aimed at children, Mini-Muscles with Cindy Crawford and the Fitwits, an animated production featuring the voices of Cindy (who also appears at the
beginning in live action).
The inaugural issue of George, a short lived political magazine in the 1990s, featured
Crawford dressed like George Washington on the cover. In 2005, The American Society
of Magazine Editors listed it as the 22nd best magazine cover of the last 40 years.
Crawford is just over 5 feet 9 inches (177 cm) tall, with brown hair and eyes. Her
measurements are 34"-26"-35".Crawford's trademark is a mole (or "beauty mark") above
her upper lip. She is so closely associated with this physical feature that she appeared in
an advertising campaign for chocolates featuring commercials wherein she "licked off"
her own mole. During the beginning of her career, the mole was removed from many of
her earlier modeling pictures, including her first Vogue cover. Her resemblance early in
her career to model Gia Carangi led her to being known as "Baby Gia".
Crawford quit modeling in 2000. She continues to provide celebrity endorsement for a
variety of projects. In 2005, Crawford created a line of beauty products with Dr. JeanLouis Sebagh called Meaningful Beauty for Guthy-Renker. Crawford has admitted to
regularly receiving certain cosmetic procedures, including Botox and vitamin injections.
She first saw a plastic surgeon at the age of 29
