Cindy Crawford will add another notch to her impressive career belt with her very own book to celebrate turning 50.
The supermodel insists it’s not a biography but “a hybrid book” which will include images, career history and the lessons she’s learned. “It’s not just a coffee table book with images, although that will be part of it,” Cindy said to WWD.
The 48-year-old beauty is set to release the book, with publisher Rizzoli, in the autumn. “It’s kind of a way to celebrate turning 50 rather as opposed to dreading it.”
As one of the Big Six supers, we’ve seen Cindy star on hundreds of covers (17 for Vogue alone), she’s been the face of a number of campaigns including Pepsi, Gap, Revlon, Versace and Guess, she’s appeared in a number of MTV music videos and in 1995 she became Forbes’ highest-earning model in the world.
Roll on 19 years and the mother-of-two is running her own business empire which includes being a part owner of skincare line Meaningful Beauty as well as her own home furnishings line. She recently became a board member and brand ambassador for healthy lifestyle company, Urban Remedy.
It seems that this new venture into the world of publishing is fitting for Cindy, who has always embraced the aging process. Recently she said: “Beauty changes as I get older. I’ve always found that beauty and confidence are synonymous. If you feel confident, that’s what people see. I always tell people to fake it until they make it.’
Though the supermodel is confident about her age, it appears there’s one thing she’s struggled to accept: her famous mole. “If I was designing my face from scratch I don’t know if I would have designed it with the mole,” she said in a recent interview with Into the Gloss. “It does look weird when they retouch it or when they flop a photo. Other people don’t notice it but I’m like, ‘They flopped it!’ My whole face is different. That’s one of the things that drives me crazy.”
