Cindy Crawford- World's Top 10 Hottest Model

by Bruce Edwin

One of the most stunningly beautiful women in the world, Cindy Crawford is known to the world as one of the original supermodels who defined that pivotal moment when fashion models became stars in their own right. A classic beauty, Cindy brought back style: the element of a woman actually looking like a woman, thank goodness, rather than a stick thin tomboy with a man’s shape. Her fame made the buxom bust and cleavage in fashion hot again, and made the curves of a woman, hips and rear, hot across all racial boundaries, long before Jennifer Lopez. Cindy Crawford was all woman, and had the body to match. Cindy used her fame as a springboard to launch a career that has spanned over two decades and resulted in an exceedingly successful and trusted brand representing beauty, fashion, fitness and home. The staying power of this native of Chicago suburb DeKalb, Illinois in a notoriously fickle industry can be credited to her consummate professionalism, keen business savvy and dedicated approach to every endeavor. These attributes, combined with her timeless beauty, earned her long-term, global contracts that helped make her an icon throughout the world, of American beauty, charm, and sexuality.

Soon after Cindy became a supermodel, MTV came calling, asking Crawford to host "House of Style," a new show that merged the worlds of music and fashion. With its coverage of everything from the voyeuristic and fun (accompanying Crawford on a swimsuit calendar shoot or shopping with Duran Duran) to the more serious (anorexia among models), House of Style became a huge hit. It also gave Crawford, who hosted for six years, a voice and a presence beyond the pages of magazines. Her amazing face with her famous beauty mark has graced over 1,000 magazine covers worldwide, including Vogue, Elle, W, Bazaar, Cosmopolitan and Allure. ‘Cindy changed the perception of the ‘sexy American girl’ from classic blue eyed blonde to a more sultry brunette with brains, charm, and professionalism to spare,’ states Michael Kors. Looking forward, Cindy, who is still as sexy as can be in her early 40’s, plans to further develop her global businesses of home décor, fitness, and beauty products, as well as still accepting modeling offers. The Hollywood Sentinel’s Top 10 Hottest Models, since the 1960’s, appears in each issue. Cindy Crawford is without a doubt, one of the worlds top 10 most beautiful ever.
