  • Hi vogue.

  • I'm Cindy Crawford and today we're going to go through my life and looks okay, here we go.

  • This was actually my publicity headshot for when I did House of Style.

  • You know, it's funny when I started doing House of Style, no stylist.

  • I think the very first time we shot I brought my own Azzedine Alaia dress and my own leather jacket, which this was my leather jacket, obviously repaired with a white t shirt here.

  • I mean, so classic, a white t shirt and a leather jacket and big hair.

  • See we're starting off strong.

  • Some of the greatest things about Houses style was just like the wacky situations, like showing Naomi Campbell putting on pimple cream and that, hey, supermodels get pimples to, you know, that kind of thing, made it much more approachable vogue.

  • This is not my first vote cover.

  • I've been very fortunate I've had a few, this is the new vogue.

  • Anna Winter came to vogue and she was all about like, what is the new vogue?

  • And I think this cover really kind of shows that it's outside.

  • It's not like one of those super close up head shots that Avignon was famous for, The Hair is up and I do have to say I don't do a lot of covers with my hair up, I feel like Cindy, Crawford's always like the hair is blowing or it's big hair, whatever.

  • I remember my first shoot for vogue was with Wayne Maser and carlene surf swimsuit story in ST Barts from that shoot, I was invited to shoot with Abadan and I went there and ended up getting the cover and I remember it was like this pink suit was very happy, I was in europe when it came out and I was passing through the airport and I stopped to buy, well I bought three and I just so wanted the woman at the counter to look at the magazine and realized it was me and she didn't, of course.

  • And she was like, do you know you have three of the same magazines, honey?

  • And that was it.

  • Well this is just, what do they call that model?

  • Off duty.

  • That wasn't a thing.

  • Again.

  • This was just me, Probably not being very chic.

  • I have like a plastic shopping bag, my big bottle of Evian and we lived in our 50 once.

  • I'm sure that jacket as a dean and that was one of the cool things about working with Azzedine.

  • Alaia was that you got to go down and get close.

  • I mean you pretty much got paid in closed and I always felt like my clothes end up in a little pile on the floor wherever I'm shooting.

  • So I didn't, I didn't wear like precious things.

  • I mean it might be Azzedine, but it was a leather coat that I wore every day.

  • It is funny that I do see pictures like this pop up on instagram all the time around Pinterest, you know, like a style inspo because again, like no one put this together other than what I grabbed.

  • So it's funny because it wasn't like styled in any way.

  • Uh I love this.

  • This was my red for Sochi dress was for the Academy Awards.

  • I was with my ex husband.

  • The red carpet thing was not such a big deal.

  • I did not have a stylist.

  • I had just been in Milan doing shows and there was a stress in black that someone was wearing, you know, I just called donatella or whoever and was like, could you guys make me the stress and red for the Oscars?

  • And they did the black shoes.

  • It's funny because it seemed right at the time.

  • They seem a little heavy to me now.

  • But the thing that was really sexy about the stress was the slit in the back.

  • It came nearly like up to it came up very high.

  • You have to be very careful in the stress a few years ago and a winter asked for the stress for an auction that bone was doing.

  • I still had it and I put it up for auction and I should have bought it back.

  • I regret that I didn't, someone has the stress now I'm not that I would wear it again, but I think I miss it a little bit.

  • Uh yeah, this is probably my favorite fashion moment.

  • I didn't do as many fashion shows is a lot of the other women that I would consider like in my group of models a lot of times I would just do for her sake.

  • This was in a gianni versace show.

  • The four of us plus Tatiana had done a George michael video that ended up being really, you know, played all the time on MTV.

  • The show happened.

  • So johnny had the song playing and the four of us come up together.

  • I wrote about this in my book and I wrote that one plus one plus one plus one equals more than four.

  • In this moment.

  • It was like something happened.

  • It felt really special.

  • It was like one of those moments where music and pop culture and fashion all came together in like a super magical way.

  • You can just see the joy on all of our faces in this picture.

  • Like we're singing as we walk down the runway and we're just having fun and we're just like drinking at every moment of it.

  • Uh, I love the shoot.

  • This shoot is also evoke surprise, surprise helmet Newton in Montecarlo.

  • I loved working with helmet.

  • I mean definitely helmet had a style and you kind of knew what you were signing up for when you worked with helmet.

  • Newton.

  • He had a sense of humor about his photographs.

  • You know, even some of the more sexualized ones, like for instance, I would always say helmet, I'm never putting a saddle on.

  • Don't even ask me.

  • He would like tell you a story as you were doing this picture.

  • And I remember the story for this picture, which was, he was like, you know, you were married to a very rich man and he died.

  • You know, so it's kind of like this widow, but you had a young lover.

  • You know, he just kept adding to the story and hoping to catch like the tiniest change of expression, you know, to get that picture and then, you know, whenever you do a picture like this with the piece of chiffon or tulle or whatever it was, it's always like you have 100 bad ones to get the one perfect one where everything's perfect, the legs perfect the arms, perfect the tools, perfect once again for sake.

  • This was the V M A S M T V awards.

  • But this was when versus did their, you know, famous bondage collection.

  • I mean what more can you say?

  • It's amazing.

  • What is interesting is I just glanced down and I saw the heels were probably three inches and that was considered high at the time.

  • I mean we did not have to wear those insanely like five inch heels until much later.

  • I thought that was a high heel at the time and when you think back, that's like your work pump now, working with Gianni and donatella was just always like, it was family, I mean they were family and they made you feel part of the family and it was always so much fun and johnny really celebrated the model in a new way.

  • I think like he also was partly responsible for what like the rise of the supermodel.

  • It's funny because Kaia, for her 18th birthday, she asked them to make her a new version of this dress, hers was shorter, but it's just funny that even for her, you know, and I think this was 30 years later, more that the style still resonated like that was her coming out party.

  • So it was kind of a way for her to be like, okay, I'm not a little girl anymore.

  • I'm wearing a bra, Sochi bondage dress when people dress as me For Halloween, they dressed in this outfit, This is my first Pepsi commercial.

  • I did.

  • I'm wearing obviously a white bodysuit.

  • These were my own genes that I wore to set that day.

  • We tried on a bunch of different things and finally they were like, can we just cut your jeans off and make cutoffs?

  • I said yes, because I take one for the team, You know, this just became iconic because of everything.

  • I mean, yes, the outfit, the hair, but I also got out of a really cool Lamborghini.

  • They had great music.

  • The greatest thing about this commercial was, even though it was like super sexy and an all american way, it was cute too, because there were two little boys that were watching me and at the end they're like, is that a great looking Pepsi can?

  • Or what if they weren't even noticing me?

  • They were just looking at the Pepsi can?

  • And I honestly don't think the commercial would have been near as impactful if it didn't have that little innocence and sense of humor.

  • And next up, steven Meisel is such an incredible teacher of modeling, he helps you understand how to move, and he used to have like this big mirror behind him when he was shooting and really loud music, but you could see yourself and you could go, oh wait, that doesn't look good, or that does look good, or that there's a wrinkle if I do that.

  • That's what I think of when I think of Stephen myself this outside, kind of more natural, almost vote cover is I think a little bit different than most of the work that I've done with Stephen, but I love it, I love the styling again, it's taking Chanel and making it look like just like the cool girl next door would be wearing it.

  • Oh my goodness!

  • Okay, so even though I'm not an actress, I did a movie called Fair Game with Billy baldwin, I played a lawyer, which is a bit of a stretch actually, I got annoyed one critique of me as if she could be a lawyer and I thought that was so offensive because I thought I could have been a lawyer.

  • I just, you know, I was valedictorian.

  • I I did go to chemical Engineering, you know, school at Northwestern, but ended up getting into modeling, but it was kind of, let's say a little bit far fetched, that is not me acting, that is actually me.

  • An actual terrorist things are exploding behind me.

  • I was outside of my comfort zone every single day.

  • I learned a lot on that film and it was fun and I have made lifelong friends, but it just wasn't my my thing.

  • Okay, so this was 2018 heavenly bodies Met ball.

  • It's funny because part of me was like, maybe I should go.

  • I don't know, like try something different.

  • I think, look, I love this dress.

  • I felt great in this dress.

  • It moved, it was comfortable again versus just fits me.

  • I do sometimes feel like, oh, maybe I should be a little more of a risk taker with fashion.

  • Like in this one, I could be at the Oscars, I could be anywhere.

  • And I think sometimes I think, oh maybe I should have, I don't know, put wings on or whatever.

  • It was heavenly bodies.

  • I don't know.

  • But I love the dress.

  • What's interesting about the Met Ball is sometimes someone will get invited but they won't get invited with a plus one.

  • I remember that my people that we we ran into a few people, I think one for instance was Ansel Elgort and he wasn't there with anybody and we're like, okay, Ansel, like we were like gathering like this kind of like the singles or the strays around us because it's very intimidating, being there by yourself.

  • And I guess maybe because I've been that person before that if I see someone, I'll go up and try to get them, you know, because it's it's horrible to feel, you know, especially like that's a very powerful room.

  • So this is when Kaya got a fashion award after her one year of modeling, she was so excited to be wearing.

  • I'm a queen dress in this.

  • I was like, yes, I'm still Cindy Crawford, but tonight I want to be Kayla's mom.

  • The last thing I wanted to do is look like I'm competing with my 17 year old daughter.

  • So I love this dress.

  • This is Mark Asia.

  • It was elegant and chic but not trying to be a showstopper for sure.

  • I mean Kaya has even when she was little, you know?

  • Well we would play, she would always want to play dress up and we'd go in my closet and she'd pick some like dull J dress or some thing and I would pin it on her and then I would do crazy hair and makeup and then we would do like a photo shoot and she do with her friends too.

  • So it was really fun.

  • So she definitely um it wasn't totally surprising to me that she wanted to get into modeling.

  • I'm proud of Kaya, just for who she is.

  • I mean modeling is just one small aspect of who she is.

  • The best advice I give both my kids, not only about modeling.

  • Show up on time.

  • Be prepared and stay off your phone.

  • It's so easy now just to like sit there and scroll instagram while you're getting your hair done or your makeup done.

  • But I think those relationships that I made in the makeup chair or backstage or whatever, those added so much to my life, thank you so much vogue for letting me reminisce about my life and looks and thanks all of you for watching.

  • Yeah.

  • Mhm.

Hi vogue.
