Cindy Crawford Is Retiring From Modeling After Her 50th Birthday

Before Gigi and Kendall, there was Cindy Crawford. She is the one who invented the “supermodel” we know today. Someone who does more than just walk the runway or appear in editorials, but is also a media personality and brand. Cindy ruled the ’90s and even recently posed alongside fellow iconic supers Naomi Campbell and Claudia Schiffer in Balmain‘s spring 2016 campaign.

Now, she is saying goodbye to the modeling world. Cindy, 49, revealed in an interview with United AirlinesHemispheres magazine that she plans to retire from modeling after her 50th birthday, which is February 20th. Publishing her book Becoming Cindy Crawford made her realize that she has accomplished everything she wanted to as a model. She tells the mag, “And I’m sure I’ll have my picture taken for 10 more years, but not as a model anymore. And that’s OK. I’ve done it. I’ve worked with all these incredible photographers. What else do I need to do? I can’t keep reinventing myself. I shouldn’t have to keep proving myself. I don’t want to.”

Well, she has definitely had a very fulfilled career! Cindy not only appeared on covers from Harper’s Bazaar to Vogue, she also walked in shows for brands like Chanel, hosted MTV‘s House of Style, starred in Pepsi commercials and wore one of the most iconic Academy Awards looks of all time (that red Versace dress!). She also created a line of beauty products, Meaningful Beauty, and is a published author. Cindy is a mother of two children, Presley and Kaia, and is married to businessman Rande Gerber.

Here’s a brief lookbook at her modeling career:
