International supermodel Cindy Crawford presents her own personal visual autobiography, the first book to chronicle her life and career, featuring some of her most memorable images.
Crawford began modeling as a teenager, first shot by Arthur Elgort, followed quickly with a Vogue cover shot by Avedon. She was the cornerstone of the Golden Age of the Supermodel in the 1990s, and the first supermodel with a distinctive personality and "voice," and blazed a trail in the '90s, seamlessly moving between the runway to other unconventional outlets and moments: appearing in Playboy Magazine (twice!); appearing in George Michael's groundbreaking video "Freedom"; becoming the face of MTV's fashion show House of Style; and inflaming young hearts everywhere with a star turn in the iconic Pepsi commercial, to name only a few.
On the eve of her fiftieth birthday, this book includes observations by Crawford about her earliest modeling years; thoughts about various points of her career; her responsibilities as a public figure; her recent transitions into the business world, and her feelings about being a mother, and turning fifty. Photographs span her entire career, beginning from the late 1980s, and include images by almost every top name in fashion photography. Photographers whose work will appear in this book include: Annie Leibovitz, Arthur Elgort, Helmut Newton, Herb Ritts, Irving Penn, Mario Testino, Patrick Demarchelier, Peter Lindbergh, and Richard Avedon, among others.

In 2015 - 1990's supermodel, Cindy Crawford turned 50 years old. And upon doing so, she published this glossy volume of stills, which also contains plenty of text as she recounts her busy career where her image was captured on camera by every top photographer in America.

And - Unless you were away, visiting on Mars during the 1990s - Then - Otherwise - You are most certain to know, very well, both the image and the name of supermodel, Cindy Crawford.

What appealed to me the most about the full-figured Crawford (in her heyday) was the fact that her brand of alluring beauty defied the scrawny, stereotypical "cadaver-look" of so many models whose unhealthy images frequently prevailed on the fashion-house runways in that era.

Anyway - Upon recently turning 50 (in 2015) - Cindy Crawford (in collaboration with Katherine O'Leary) published "Becoming" which was a visually provocative pictorial-biography of her celebrated life and career (lavishly presented through stills and text).

*P.S.* - "Becoming" is definitely not a Cindy Crawford "Tell-All".
