Cindy is the second of three girls and four children. Her parents, Daniel and Jennif(i)er (sp.), now
divorced. Brother Jeff was four years younger than Cindy, died of leukemia at when he was age 4
and Cindy was 8. Older sister, Chris, has always lived in the Chicago area and is a teacher.
Younger sister Danielle has worked in the peace corp and worked most recently as production
assistant on Cindy's film 'Fair Game'. She also appears in he film as a waitress. She now works on a
dude ranch in Colorado. Before becoming a megamodel, Cindy won a chemical engineering
scholarship, and scored perfectly on her college calculus exams. Cindy attended Northwestern
University but never graduated. She did however graduate Valedictorian of DeKalb High with a 4.0
avg.

Cindy Crawford's life is the classic rags to riches tale. Well, almost. No overnight sensation, it
was rags or rather the clothing trade, that brought her to the rather lofty financial level as the
highest paid, and probably the single most widely recognized supermodel. Commanding somewhere
in the neighborhood of six to nine million dollars <Picture>last year alone. Cindy was the
spokesperson for Pepsi Max for a while, and her commercial introducing Pepsi's new look was a
finalist for Advertising Age's "The Best Awards 1991." Her picture has graced the covers of over
four hundred major international magazines. As the host of MTV's "House of Style," satellites beam
Cindy and her world of fashion to the farthest reaches of the globe. Celebrating its Fifth Anniversary
this year, "House of Style" remains one of the most popular shows on MTV. Crawford hosted her
first special for the network which featured a behind-the-scenes look at "Melrose Place," "Saturday
Night Live" and the White House as well as interviews with Shaquille O'Neal and Rosie O'Donnell.
She's has also done at least four calendars (including a new for 1996) and of the profit, half (I
believe) goes toward fighting leukemia, and she has put out two exercise videos. Had a three year
$3 million contract with Revlon. Appeared in print ads for JH Collectibles and Capezio Bags, and
also in a series of lingerie posters for Hennes & Mauritz in Europe. The Norway police was forced to
tore many of them down because they feared drivers were being too distracted. She is also the
jewelry fashion spokesmodel for Kay Jewelers, part of the Sterling family of fine jewelry stores,
which will launch a signature collection bearing her name soon. She has said she feels too old for
runway modeling, and wishes to cut back to part time modelling.

When first starting out Cindy was called "Baby Gia" after now dead Gia Carangi, the main
difference being that Cindy was wholesome and Gia died from her lifestyle. The resemblance
between them in the early years is uncanny.

Appeared topless in the July 1988 Playboy. Quote: "I don't mind if someone thinks a picture of me
decorates their wall nicely. It's weird when you think what people might be doing to it. But if just
the way I look can make someone feel good, that's a pretty easy way for me to bring them some
pleasure. I just don't want to hear about graphics details, you know.

She was married to actor Richard Gere in Dec '91 at the Little Church of the West in Las Vegas,
by Rev. Wes McPherson. They using wedding bands twisted from chewing gum wrappers. Cindy
said, during an interview, they planned on having a child soon. Those plans, now of course
canceled. Cindy is frequently rumored to be bisexual, and having an affair with Christy Turlington.
In '91, they were photographed while kissing behind the Roxy nightclub in New York. The rumors
have intensified since Cindy appeared on the cover of Vanity Fair shaving k.d. lang, a confirmed
lesbian. On May 6, 1994, the London Times published a full page advertisement in which Cindy
and Richard Gere proclaimed:"We are heterosexual and monogamous and take our commitment to
each other very seriously". It cost them $30,000. She has now broken off with Richard Gere.

The move to producing came for Cindy in 1992 with the highly successful "Cindy Crawford/Shape
Your Body Workout." In addition to starring in the exercise video, which she developed with
personal trainer Radu, Cindy also served as an executive producer. Topping Billboard's Health and
Fitness charts since its debut in October of 1992, the video has sold more than 2 million copies in
the United States alone. Amazed at the overwhelming response to the workout tape, Cindy and
Radu did it again with a follow-up release entitled "The Next Challenge." No surprise, true to form
this tape also became a winner. The video is comprised of one complete workout program that
features a "cross-training" approach to total body workout rather than the "circuit training"
approach of the first video.

he same company who made the last 4 calendars has brought out the Cindy Crawford 1994
European Edition Calendar which has various pics taken from her last four calendars. Also, there is
another calendar produced by an English firm which is of fairly poor quality (its only 12 month while
the European Edition is 16 months). [ Addresses for the two companies, CULTRE SHOCK and DAY
DREAM CALENDARS, are in the addresses section the supermodel FAQ. ]

In 1992, Crawford hosted two specials for Fox TV "Concert for Life" dedicated to the memory of
Freddie Mercury and broadcast live from Wembley Stadium, and "Stuntwomen World Tour '92," an
exciting look at Hollywood's stuntwomen.

Cindy has apartments in New York City and Bel Air, California. Has cottages in Westchester, New
York and a beach house in Malibu. She lives in the same New York City building as Linda
Evangelista, Christy Turlington and Winona Ryder. Dividing her time between New York and Los
Angeles, Cindy Crawford is hard at work building her career from coast to coast when she's not
starring in major motion pictures.

What's new:

- Cindy Crawford 1996 Calendar by Culture Shock which is a 12 month calendar. There are no
swimsuit shots just great photo's of Cindy being gorgeous. Couple of face profiles and Cindy
dressed up, and Cindy in a towel. There are two B&W photos while the rest is in colour. All the
pictures are except for her classic playboy shot (Cindy holding her breasts) and one runway shot

- Rumours: Cindy and lesbian KD Lang were spotted in a San Francisco night club dancing and
drinking. I guess some guy tried to cut in and dance with Cindy while she was dancing with kd,Well
kd being the man of the two she belted the guy and dropped him,then they went back to dancing. ;-)

From the latest Esquire (not the picture): It's got Cindy Crawford as their "New Varga Girl". "The
New Varga Girl" is a series of pin-up pictures in the 50's or somethin' and now they take today's
supermodels and have them re-create poses. Past ones include Vendela, Angie Everhart, and Tyra
Banks.

- She has recently been linked to the newly separated Val Kilmer.

- Cindy will have a lead role in 'Baywatch', which is scheduled to become a movie.

- John Casablancas of Elite modeling agency was not a happy camper after he read Cindy
Crawford's explanation, in NY Post, of why she left Elite. Cindy said that Elite was "double dipping"
her commissions, and she felt that constituted a conflict of interest. John say La Crawford is
misrepresenting the situation, and the famous beauty led us down the garden path---or the catwalk,
as it were. Casablancas says that "ALL model agencies around the world charge what your article
described as 'double dipping'---with the full knowledge and consent of their models and, without
having anyone accuse us of 'conflict of interest'. This is an open and legal practice...At one point,
she decided she no longer wanted to pay such commissions and regardless of what we had done to
bring her to the top, she wanted to deal with us as if we were recently met theatrical agents who
had nothing to do with the construction of her career. What Cindy basically said was this: 'If you
want the privilege of representing me and to avoid the embarrassment of losing me, you have to
reduce your take by 60 percent; take it or leave it' "We decided to leave it, and she was gone." But
Casablancas also says that if Cindy would "come down off her high horse and make us a reasonable
offer," Elite would love to have her back.

Liz Smith, NY Post, Thursday, 2/8/96

Married since: 1991

What went wrong: In spring 1994, they managed to collaborate on the now-famous ad in
TheTimes of London denying rumors that they were gay--but the marriage was already in trouble.
"We didn't spend enough time together,'' Crawford said earlier this year. "And we're equally
responsible for that. We thought it would be okay if we just flew in from Paris to L.A. to get together
for a night to see each other. It wasn't." Gere isn't commenting.

What friends say: They had very different priorities. Gere, 46, is a devout Buddhist. Crawford, 29,
working on becoming more than a supermodel, is much more career-oriented. "He's spiritual," says
photographer-pal Herb Ritts. "Cindy gave it a try, but she's not into eating yak butter.'

Where are they now: Crawford lives in their $1.9 million Malibu house and says she's not dating,
although she visited Val Kilmer twice in Australia in September on the set of The Island of Dr.
Moreau, and she has been rumoured to keep company off and on with restaurateur Rande Gerber.
Gere has been seen with a Swedish woman, and before that British model Laura Bailey, 23. His
lavish West Coast place is near Cindy's.
