Who is Cindy Crawford?

Famous as one of the original supermodels of America, Cynthia Ann Crawford or Cindy Crawford is one of the very few names, who have revolutionized the fashion industry. When young, she worked with the biggest fashion brands and posed for endless magazines to etch her name in the glamour business. Even today, years after she quit modeling, she is recognized as a fashionista, who is not just beautiful but extremely smart as well! Once a brilliant student, she gave up her academics for her modeling career, turning towards business a while later. She knew, relying just on modeling as a career in the long run is not wise as time would fade her image, especially with the advent of fresher models and of course with age. Therefore, she embarked on a separate journey as a television host, actor and as a businesswoman. She has displayed her creativity through her line of furniture, cutlery, silverware, bed linens etc. to emerge as one of the most successful businesswomen from the fashion industry. Besides, she is a philanthropic involved in various charitable programs and also spreads awareness regarding various types of cancer.

Childhood & Early Life

She was 16 when a newspaper photographer found her and took a photograph of her. Her photo was appreciated and soon she took up modeling. She participated in the Elite Model Management's Look of the Year contest at 17 and finished as a runner-up.

Following the contest, she became the face of the Elite modeling agency in Chicago. Cindy completed her education from DeKalb High School in 1984 and also received scholarship in chemical engineering at Northwestern University. However, she studied there only for the first quarter before dropping out to pursue modeling.

She worked for Victor Skrebneski, a famous photographer in Chicago. She moved to Manhattan in 1986 to work with the Elite New York modeling agency.
