Cindy Crawford, 47, gives a sensuous photoshoot
– Reported – November, 20 2013
She’s not far off the big 5-0, but Cindy Crawford never ceases to amaze with her superb modelling skills. The 47-year-old graces of cover of C magazine’s December issue, as well as a full spread within the glossy pages. And as she exposes her lean limbs with exotic poses, it’s clear that once a supermodel, always a supermodel.
One shot captures the mother-of-two in a glittering black blouse that’s barely buttoned, revealing a glimpse of her taut midriff. Beneath the shirt, she’s wearing a white high-waisted maxi skirt that’s spiced up with a sassy thigh-high-split. The picture is taken in front of an ocean-side landscape in Malibu, and Cindy’s eyes are closed, as she nudges her head and effortlessly bends her leg to display her sculpted calves.
Two other shots fill up the black-and-white sequence. One captures the wife of Rande Gerber accentuating her thin frame in a tight, sleeveless black dress whilst cinching her waist with her hands. and Cindy’s locks are flowing in the wind, as she stands still in her pointed-toe pumps.
Cynthia Ann “Cindy” Crawford was born on February 20, 1966. She is an American model. Crawford is known for her trademark mole just above her lip, and has adorned hundreds of magazine covers throughout her career. Her success at modeling made her an international celebrity that has led to roles in television and film, and to work as a spokesperson. In 1995, Forbes magazine named her the highest paid model on the planet. She was named No. 3 on VH1’s 40 Hottest Hotties of the 90s and was named one of the “100 Hottest Women of All-Time” by Men’s Health.
Crawford was born in DeKalb, Illinois, the daughter of Jennifer Sue Crawford-Moluf and John Crawford .She has stated that her family has been in the US for generations and that her ancestry is mostly German, English and French.
She was discovered at the age of 16 by a newspaper photographer, when he noticed Cindy at work during her summer job of detasseling corn and took a picture of her. The photo and positive feedback she received were enough to convince her to take up modeling. She entered the Elite Model Management’s Look of the Year contest at 17 and was the runner-up. The Elite modeling agency in Chicago then started representing her.
Crawford graduated from DeKalb High School in 1984, as valedictorian. She won an academic scholarship to study chemical engineering at Northwestern University, which she attended for only one quarter. She dropped out in order to pursue a full-time modeling career. After working for photographer Victor Skrebneski in Chicago, Cindy moved to Manhattan in 1986; she was signed with the Elite New York modeling agency.
In July 1988, she posed nude for Playboy magazine in a shoot by photographer Herb Ritts. In October 1998, Crawford returned to the pages of Playboy for a second nude pictorial, again taken by Ritts.
Crawford has consistently ranked highly on lists of the world’s sexiest people. She was ranked number 5 on Playboy’s list of the 100 Sexiest Stars of the 20th century. A 1997 Shape magazine survey of 4,000 picked her as the second (after Demi Moore) most beautiful woman in the world. In 2002, Crawford was named one of the 50 Most Beautiful People by People magazine. In her forties, she claimed No. 26 in the 2006 Hot 100 issue of Maxim magazine.
After dressing in something that could be worn to work, the model slipped into an ensemble that resembled pyjamas. But the set was spruced up of course, including a metallic button-down blouse – which exposed her cleavage – and a pair of flouncy wide-leg trousers. The rest of the feature included colour photos, one profile angle in a black outfit and one frontal shot in strapless bronze dress. Though her eyes are shut for her spread, they are wide open on the cover of the magazine, in which she shows off her ageless features, famous beauty mark, and vixenish pout.
