You know those JC Penney commercials where Cindy Crawford is prancing around her house with her two adorable kids trying to sell her home decor line, Cindy Crawford Style? She looks more like an SUV-driving soccer mom than the supermodel we once knew and loved. Could it be that Cindy Crawford had lost her swag?
This month’s Harper’s Bazaar UK is a wake-up call to those who questioned Cindy’s sexiness or, worse yet, assumed the loss of those world-famous legs that “seemed to straddle the world,” as Sara Buys so perfectly put it in the article.
As Buys points out, it is long past due that we stop and recognize Cindy’s greatness. After all, she’s continued to have an unwaveringly illustrious career, including her famous Omega Watch campaign; raised two insanely good looking children; and survived a Nanny scandal.
This may not be an interview full of incredible answers to poignant questions — we won’t be hearing about her thoughts on the great weight debate or her experience of the death of McQueen — but what what we do get is an incredible summary of the woman and the career that is Cindy Crawford. The piece opens with an obvious yet important reminder of her greatness; and a vow that “the legs, lips and longevity of everyone’s favourite American dreamgirl” would be celebrated.
“A quarter of a century may have passed since her first major cover, but Cindy Crawford – of the five Supers who ruled the fashion world in the late Eighties and early Nineties – still has the power to enthral.”
We think the pictures speak for themselves.
