Cindy Crawford is a model, actress, and businesswoman, who became famous during her years as a model through roles in films and television shows.
Crawford’s career as a model began in the 1980s and 1990s when she was one of the most popular supermodels and appeared regularly on catwalks, magazine covers, and fashion campaigns. One of the epic moments of her modeling career was the iconic Pepsi commercial in 1991, in which she got out of a red Lamborghini to quench her thirst at a gas station machine.
At the age of 17, Crawford entered the elite model management’s “Look of the Year” competition, for which she eventually came in second. She was later represented by Elite Model Management in Chicago.
She studied chemical engineering at Northwestern University but dropped out to pursue modeling and acting as a full-time career.
While her professional successes have made her the main topic on the Internet, the media have been enchanted by her daughter Kaia Jordan Gerber, a doppelganger.
Who is Cindy Crawford, Daughter
Cindy Crawford’s daughter Kaia Jordan Gerber is a model – just like her mother and father Rande Gerber – and has dominated the catwalks of Fashion Week in Paris, Milan, and New York since 2018.
The young woman has been active as a model since 2014. She made her debut as a model who will take to the stage during New York Fashion Week 2018. She ran for the designer Raf Simons of the Calvin Klein label as well as for other fashion houses such as Fendi, Marc Jacobs, Prada, Burberry, Alexander Wang, Coach, Moschino. She has already modeled for Chanel and Versace and is currently under contract with IMG Models.
Kaia was born on September 3, 2001, in Los Angeles, California, USA, and is her parents’ second child and only daughter. She has an older brother, Presley Walker Gerber, who also works as a model. Her father is Jewish, while her mother is of English, French and German descent.
The entire Gerber family stands on the pedestal of entertainment and entrepreneurship. In 2016 Kaia plays sister cities in the film Carolina.
At this young age, Kaia feels completely at home on her career path. In an interview with Teen Vogue, she said that she likes being a model best when she gets to know people. She doesn’t believe that there is no other job where you can learn so many things about different people.
The 16-year-old aspiring star said that she just loves to make new relationships.
Cindy Crawford’s Husband
Cindy Crawford’s husband Rande Gerber is a businessman and a former model. He is the founder of the nightlife companies Midnight Oil and the Gerber Group, an American entrepreneur whose portfolio consists of bars, lounges, and restaurants around the globe.
He founded Gerber Spirit and used his family name to create an alcoholic brand.
Gerber also entered into a business partnership with his best friend and Hollywood actor George Clooney. In 2013, both men launched Casamigos tequila and later sold the company to Diageo, a London-based multinational alcoholic beverage company, for a whopping $700 million.
Crawford and Gerber were married on May 29, 1998, and the couple began as friends while still married to her ex-husband, Richard Gere. She talked about this in an interview with ninja journalism and said that her current marriage was rooted and based on friendship, which kept the relationship going.
No matter how perfect her marriage seemed to be, it came without some insults. Cindy Crawford’s husband was accused of infidelity in the past, in 2004 and 2009 to be exact.
The first came from a former waitress named Harmy Kubiak who was employed by Gerber and claimed to have had relations with the entrepreneur and father of 2 children. In 2009, similar allegations surfaced, this time from two former employees, who accused Gerber of unfairly firing them after he made advances to them and they refused. He denied all of the accusations.
After 21 years of marriage, Crawford and Gerber live as role models for their children Kaia and Presley. The younger Gerbers are described as spitting out pictures of their mother down to their cheekbones.
Cindy Crawford Net Worth
Although Crawford has retired from modeling, apart from a few special occasions where she still poses for Omega watches and the Russian department store TSUM, the supermodel has enormous financial returns from her modeling and acting career. She has an estimated net worth of $100 million.
Besides her career in the entertainment industry, Crawford has invested her money in other companies over the years. In 2005, she partnered with HM Richards for a range of home furniture sold through retailers such as Art Van, Rooms to Go, Raymour & Flanigan.
Later in 2009, Crawford entered into another partnership with JCPenny to sell a home décor line and a mid-range jewelry collection called One Kiss.
Their other investments include a branded shoe collection sold through European retailer Deichmann and an anti-aging skincare line, Meaningful Beauty.
Despite all these achievements, her greatest professional successes are in the entertainment industry: she successfully became a supermodel and appeared on the front page of many magazines as well as in films and TV shows.
Cindy Crawford Legacy
In 1997, Cindy Crawford was voted the second most beautiful woman in the world by Shape magazine and appeared in the list of several magazines as one of the hottest women. She has walked the ramp for top designers like DKNY, Versace, Michael Kors, Todd, Calvin Klein, Oldham, Ralph Lauren, Dolce & Gabbana, Christian Dior, Valentino, and Chanel.
In addition to his campaign for Valentino, Ellen Tracy, Guess, Calvin Klein, David Yurman, Oscar De La Renta, Escada, Hermes, Maybelline, Anne Klein, Liz Claiborne, and others, Crawford has appeared in several music videos for artists such as Taylor Swift, Bon Jovi, Gorge Micheal, and others.
She is currently an activist and involved in charity work. In another interview with reporters, the mother of 2 children expressed concern about her daughter’s involvement in the modeling industry.
She fears that her daughter Kaia will never again be as successful as she once was as a model. Although she thought it was an issue, she said that it would mean a lot of pressure for Kaia to try to outgrow her parents’ success. Crawford was reportedly quoted as saying, “If you have a successful parent and you get into the same business, but if you’re not more successful, what then?
