Cindy Crawford far too healthy!

Cindy, Linda & Naomi for the Versace Catwalk

Don’t you just love it when a well know fashionista back-lashes the industry – ok, she’s actually a massive supermodel with one of the best figures of all time! But she has the guts and honesty to voice the significant fact that if she was a new model entering the industry today, she wouldn’t have ever made it onto the catwalk!!

‘I would not have become a supermodel in 2009, I look too healthy. A body like mine with big breasts, normal thighs and toned upper arms would not be tailored for today’s runways.’ Crawford told German magazine Bunte.

Vogue – ‘Body Language’, 29/10/09

What a quote, but it’s so true! What happened to the great bodies of Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista and Naomi Campbell – the massive eighties supermodels? They are sexy, attractive and most of all look like women, so again our question forms on why the industry started to introduce stick thin waifs onto the runway!

Cindy, Naomi, Tatjana, Christy, Linda - 1990 British Vogue Cover

I’m sure you all remember (or if your younger than me, have heard of) the massive 1990 British Vogue cover that commenced the supermodel era and featured Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington and Tatjana Patitiz. Back then their slender, toned and largely curvaceous (compared to today’s standards) figures were the be all and end all. At the time I’m sure the general public thought of them as thin and an unreachable standard to achieve, but now relating to their androgynous counterparts they are as Crawford quotes ‘far too healthy’!

    Good for cindy 🙂
    I agree, I watch all the Americas next top model and britians nexttop model, and I have found that the ‘new’ age model is ridiculously small… I think that with the increasing obesity levels people and models should be showing the average sized person and proud of there curves !!
