Supermodel Cindy Crawford gets gorgeous for a feature in V magazine’s Winter issue. The 47-year-old mom of two – son Presley, 14, and daughter Kaia, 12 – opens up about her daughter’s modeling debut, making pizza with Harry Styles, and her prolific career.
On having an impromptu pizza making party with her kids and Harry Styles: “Oh, that? [laughs] He stopped by to say hi when my kids and I were making pizzas. My kids were doing their own little pizzas and they couldn’t slide them off the pan. Harry goes, ‘Well, did you put down enough flour so they wouldn’t stick?’ And my husband says, ‘How in the world do you know that?’ and my little girl chimes in,’ Oh, he used to work for a bakery, Dad. Everyone knows that.’ My daughter is twelve. That was bigger than her birthday!"
On Kaia’s modeling debut in the Versace kids’ campaign: “That opportunity felt organic. I worked for Versace a lot in my career and I knew Mert and Marcus were the photographers and Donatella would be there. That’s a dream team. So I figured if she ever wanted to do it this would be a good experience, and it was. We had to drive three hours to the shoot and she had to miss a friend’s birthday party, and then we had to wait in the trailer for three more hours because they shot Gisele first. At the end, she thought, “This is boring.” And I said, “This is work.” It was a good lesson. If she wants to do it, I’m a good guide. I can help her make good decisions, but now I think she’d rather be an actress.”
On the Supermodel era & her Supermodel moment: "I use the word supermodel tongue-in-cheek. At first I found it silly. Do we change into capes and tights in phone booths? If I had to label my supermodel moment, I would say it was that Versace show when Naomi, Linda, Christy, and I all came out together. We had just done the George Michael video for “Freedom,” and George was in the front row, and we came out skipping and holding hands. It felt like the stars had aligned. But then the next day we were all on another plane going to another city to do another job. I remember thinking, What am I going to do when I’m 25? Or 30? Or 40? We kept pushing the sell-by date."
