Whistles muse: Cindy Crawford

16.10.2015

To celebrate her new book and upcoming 50th birthday we take a look back at the distinct Crawford style.

A key player in the early 90’s super crew, Cindy Crawford is the all American bombshell who defined the term 'supermodel.' From her iconic Pepsi advert, fronting MTV’s House of Style, countless Vogue covers and accessible workout videos - Cindy not only became a cultural icon in her own right, but gave us a wealth of wardrobe inspiration along the way.

With her trademark mole and voluminous glossy hair, Cindy’s style spans from high fashion allure and body conscious styles to casual, athletic cool. Staple pieces include denim (shorts, mid rise jeans and jackets) balanced with cropped athletic t-shirts, ribbed bandeaus and strong silver hoops. All black and tailored dressing is paired with a pointed flat and leather jackets are oversized, open to reveal a body-con dress below, for a confident feminine silhouette.

Becoming, Crawford's latest book published by Rizzoli, takes an in-depth look into her iconic shoots, unseen personal images and documents each great photographers process, from Herb Ritts to Irving Penn. Available to buy now, a must-read for fashion fans.
