Cindy Crawford felt “stars aligned” when she modelled with Naomi Campbell and Christy Turlington.
The 47-year-old was one of the biggest names in the fashion industry during the ’80s and ’90s. Cindy landed her first Vogue cover when she was just 21, but says one of her standout moments involved her fellow supermodels.
“At first I found it silly. Do we change into capes and tights in phone booths?” Cindy said of being called a supermodel. “If I had to label my supermodel moment, I would say it was that Versace show when Naomi, Linda [Evangelista], Christy, and I all came out together. We had just done the George Michael video for Freedom, and George was in the front row, and we came out skipping and holding hands. It felt like the stars had aligned.”
Cindy feels her modelling skills have improved throughout the years. While she knows exactly how to work the camera, she claims her body isn’t quite what it was.
Cindy also discussed her daughter Kaia Gerber’s first venture into the fashion industry. Kaia was shot last year by fashion photographer duo, Mert and Marcus for Versace’s childrenswear campaign. However, the 12-year-old wasn’t too impressed by the lengthy process.
“We had to wait in the trailer for three hours because they shot Gisele first. At the end she thought, ‘This is boring .’ And I said, ‘This is work .’ It was a good lesson,” Cindy recalled. “If she wants to do it, I’m a good guide. I can help her make good decisions, but now I think she’d rather be an actress.”
