She's the last on the list of my fashion icons, but certainly not least. In fact, she may just be my favorite. I have loved her since I was a little girl, and shared the title of major fan with my favorite cousin who I dearly looked up to most of my life. (Love ya, Penny!)
Anyway, I think Cindy Crawford is absolutely gorgeous. She has that look of the girl next door, yet you also see a woman with exotic looks staring back at you from those magazine covers she adorns. That is something that I believe can only be achieved by the grace of God and the good genes that he's blessed you with. She is absolutely stunning and beyond photogenic! Yet at the same time, she makes "regular" women feel like they can relate to her and see a bit of themselves in her. Now there is a great way to have yourself be marketable! She definitely has a higher power on her side. :)
And let's not forget her sense of style. Of course, she's had great influences in her life, I'm sure, when it comes to fashion sense. Whatever the case may be, I love her style. She has impeccable taste. She always looks classy to me in anything she puts together. She is a true beauty.
Michael Kors has said this of Cindy Crawford, "Cindy changed the perception of the ‘sexy American girl’ from classic blue eyed blonde to a more sultry brunette with brains, charm, and professionalism to spare."
Amen! I think she's a fashion icon in every sense of the word.
