You gotta give it up for Cindy Crawford. This hardworking woman has accomplished a whole lot in her time on this planet. She got her first big break as a runner-up in Elite Model Management’s Look of the Year contest back in ’83, she studied chemical engineering on scholarship at Northwestern University, she was the face of Pepsi in the early ’90s and her 1992 Super Bowl ad is pretty much legendary. She’s also been in a bunch of movies, and she even launched a line of furniture called the Cindy Crawford Home Collection in 2005. All this, and Crawford still managed to fit in time to raise a gorgeous family.
No, the apple does not fall far from Crawford’s really, really ridiculously good-looking tree. And if you need evidence, just look to her daughter, Kaia Gerber, who’s a real chip off the old block.
