Cindy Crawford Opens Up About The Effects of Aging in Her New Book

In the modeling world, there is always the question of what image is the right image. Tall, skinny and young are words often associated with this industry. And when models in the spotlight veer away from an ideal they've long been associated with, they can suffer from societal scrutiny. Cindy Crawford As Cindy Crawford prepares to turn 50 years old in February of next year, the supermodel whose career took off in the 90s, reveals the secrets of her success, the downfalls she faced and the highs and lows of the modeling industry in her new book, "Becoming." Known for her signature beauty mark, voluminous hair, long and lean legs and exceptional curves, Crawford's looks have long been envied by many walks of life. But now, the mother of two opens up about what it's like to age in the spotlight. With a career that has spanned more than three decades, including covers on Vogue, Playboy, and nearly every top magazine on the market, Crawford is known to be among the best in the business. In an extract from her book published in the Sunday Times, Crawford notes that the process of aging has affected her. "Like most young women, I didn't think about aging until I was well into my thirties. It dawned on me that at 38 I wasn't immune to the process," she says. "Journalists would ask me how I felt about turning 40, and I would think: 'Whoa!' Let's at least wait until I'm 39 to start talking about it." Cindy Crawford It takes a lot of courage to open up and reveal that life hasn't always been kind, but Crawford's book, which will be released later this year, serves as a tell-all. "Having been a model now for more than 30 years and dependent on my looks for my work, seeing those changes might even be a little bit harder for me,' she says. "At times the pressure to live up to the fashion industry's expectations feels overwhelming." Are you excited to read Crawford's book, "Becoming"? Source: Daily Mail Do you follow us on Instagram?
