Cindy Crawford on the cover of Playboy, July 1988

Cynthia Ann Crawford (born February 20, 1966) is an American supermodel and actress.

Born in DeKalb, Illinois, her trademark is a visible mole on her face (although most people refer to it as a "beauty mark"). A series of exercise videos that she made were successful; her acting pursuits were not so. She continues to provide celebrity endorsement for a variety of projects.

From 1989 to 1995, Crawford was host of MTV's House of Style. In 1992, roadside posters of her had to be removed in Norway when authorities noticed a 300% increase in the accident rate as motorists were distracted by them. In 1995 Crawford took her first movie role in Fair Game. Her performance was dismissed by critics, and the greenlighting of a $50 million film on the assumption that she would be a good actress was described in the magazine Total Film in 2004 as the 7th "dumbest decision in movie history". Fair Game took $11 million at the box office.

Crawford is just over 5 feet 9 inches (175 cm) tall, has a slim, well-toned figure, with brown hair and eyes. Her measurements are 34"-24"-35". She was the first modern supermodel to pose nude for Playboy magazine. She was ranked number 5 on Playboy's list of the 100 Sexiest Stars of the 20th century. She has been featured on the cover of more than 600 magazines worldwide including Vogue, W, People, Harper's Bazaar, ELLE and Allure. A 1997 Shape magazine survey of 4,000 picked her as the second (after Demi Moore) most beautiful woman in the world. In 2002, Crawford was named one of the 50 Most Beautiful People by People magazine.

Crawford is now happy in her second marriage to Rande Gerber (club owner) with two young children, Presely & Kaia. Crawford's first marriage to actor Richard Gere lasted from 1991 to 1995. It was heavily rumoured that the marriage was a cover for their mutual homosexuality, but this was denied by both. Gere has also since become a father. During their marriage, the rumors had been further fueled (and mocked) by Crawford when she appeared on the cover of Vanity Fair in a semi-provocative pose with popular and openly lesbian singer k.d. lang in August 1993. In contrast, one of Crawford's last covers was an issue of W featuring a black-and-white nude of her very-pregnant profile, echoing a similar color cover photo years earlier by Demi Moore on the cover of Vanity Fair in August 1991.

Crawford now owns her own production company, Crawdaddy Inc.
