I’m back and having a five day break with my family celebrating Christmas, having no internet was not as hard as I thought although that’s not to say I didn’t miss it and will be catching up on all the goss tomorrow.
The break also enabled me to catch up on a backlog of mags I hadn’t had time to read and here is Madison Magazine’s January 2010 issue starring Cindy Crawford.Â (The front cover colour for the pink text should be orange, but I couldn’t get it orange no matter what I changed on the scanner!). Photographed by Alix Malka/Chris Boals and styled by Barbara Baumel and Jed Root.
Cindy comments that “A body like mine with big breasts, normal thighs and toned arms wouldn’t fit into the modeling industry anymore” adding that in today’s world she wouldn’t have been able to attain the same success saying “I look too healthy“.
And continuing with the breakdown of the model illusion after two hours of hair and make-up plus photo retouching, “even I don’t wake up looking like Cindy Crawford“.Â And she freely admits to having cellulite but she says that her body is strong and that’s the way she likes it.
Cindy loves being in her 40’s and having self-awareness, knowledge and confidence.Â She also goes onto say that “I would ‘never refer to myself as a supermodel because it sounds silly and it sounds like we change into our capes in a telephone booth“.
Cindy Crawford is still a favourite model of mine and I love her honesty and clearly we all still love her ’cause she’s in hot demand, what a hot mama she is!
