Cindy Crawford has appeared on over 400 magazine covers across the globe, making her one of the most recognizable faces in the world. She has numerous film and television credits and is the author of Cindy Crawford's Basic Face (Broadway Books), a make-up workbook published by Broadway Books.
Cindy made a smooth transition from the world of fashion into the arena of broadcast journalism with MTV's acclaimed "House of Style," which she hosted for six years. In 1995, she hosted her first special for the network, which included behind- the-scenes looks at everything from Melrose Place to the White House. Two years later, she returned to MTV as a featured correspondent and guest-hosted numerous talk shows, including Regis & Kathie Lee and NBC's Later. Currently, she is developing projects exclusively with ABC Television, the first of which was the highly successful Sex with Cindy Crawford.
Cindy is also an acclaimed producer, having been the driving force behind her successful Cindy Crawford/Shape Your Body workout, which she developed with renowned trainer Radu. The video has sold over 2 million copies in the United States alone; its popularity led to a follow- up, The Next Challenge, which has been equally as successful as its predecessor.
Among Cindy's many other credits are Fair Game, a feature film in which she starred opposite William Baldwin; Muppets Tonight, which she guest-hosted; and numerous specials for Fox-TV.
Born and raised in DeKalb, Illinois, Cindy was one of the finalists in Elite Model Management's Look of the Year competition (1983). In the past fifteen years, she has become one of the most successful models of all time. She donates a great deal of time and energy to the Leukemia Society of America, in memory of her brother, who died at age four from the blood disorder. She also is a supporter of breast cancer research, both on her own and through Revlon, the cosmetics company for which she is an international spokesperson.
Cindy commutes between New York and Los Angeles, although she spends more time on the East Coast these days: she recently married entrepreneur Rande Gerber in a private beachfront ceremony.
