MISSBISH Archives | Cindy Crawford Clarifies Rumors Of Retirement From Modeling
DateFebruary 3, 2016
It’s safe to say Cindy Crawford is one of the greatest models that has graced the runway. In recent years, the legendary model has placed her focus on her businesses and family, causing some to believe she is retiring soon. As she approaches her 50th birthday, the model hinted that she might be preparing for an exit from the modeling world.
“I feel like I’m allowing that to have been great, and I’m celebrating it. And I’m sure I’ll have my picture taken for 10 more years, but not as a model anymore. And that’s OK. I’ve done it. I’ve worked with all these incredible photographers. What else do I need to do? I can’t keep reinventing myself. I shouldn’t have to keep proving myself. I don’t want to.”
Since the Hemispheres interview, Cindy clarified the rumors on her retirement via Instagram, saying:
“Every year, I tell my kids I’m retiring. It’s a running joke in our family. And yet every year, opportunities pop up that really excite me. While it’s true that I’m eager to shift my focus a bit to concentrate on my businesses, friends and family — I’m not making any final statements (not all headlines tell the whole story!). I have loved being part of the fashion industry for the past 30 years — and if that time has taught me anything, it’s this: never say never. Thanks for all the support, I’m so excited for what 2016 holds! xo Cindy”
