    I hope it hasn't been published, it's my very first magazine post so I hope it works as I put it.

    here's a picture they featured on the website:

    Interview: Cindy Crawford
    The supermodel and mom proves that beauty is eternal.
    By Dennis Hensley

    If you were to hack into Cindy Crawford’s trusty BlackBerry, it might appear that her day-to-day routine isn’t so different from that of most working mothers. Most days, she shuttles her kids—Presley, 10, and Kaia, 8—to school, returns emails, takes business meetings, cares for her house, gets dinner on the table, and squeezes in a workout and some one-on-one time with her husband of 12 years—nightlife mogul Rande Gerber—if she can. It’s your modern mom’s basic 24-7 balancing act, performed without a net, of course.

    There are other days, however, when Crawford’s life seems exotic and glamorous in a way that most people can only dream about. Like when she’s holidaying with Gerber and their good friend George Clooney at the actor’s villa in Lake Como, for example. Or when she’s jetting off to special events around the world, like the recent Vancouver Olympics, where we met up with her in her capacity as a long-time spokesperson for Omega watches. “I did an event in India where I came in riding an elephant,” she recalls, her eyes lighting up. “That was very cool. And I did one recently with George at the London Film Festival that was fun too. Each has a different flavour.”

    And yet, we don’t resent her for it. What’s remarkable about Crawford is that people who don’t get to make grand entrances on elephants or hang out with George Clooney still relate to her. This was true at the height of her ’90s-era supermodel fame and it’s still true today. “She was amazingly versatile,” observed The Times fashion editor Lisa Armstrong in London’s The Times Magazine. “She could do big hair, sexy commercial stuff...she was very beautiful so she could do beauty advertising, and she was also in demand for high fashion. That’s pretty unique.”

    That across-the-board appeal has allowed Crawford to evolve from a face that launched a thousand magazine covers in the last millennium into a global one-woman brand in this one. In addition to her ongoing partnership with Omega, Crawford has her own line of skin-care products, Meaningful Beauty, a furniture line with Raymour & Flanigan, and a newly launched home collection for JC Penney called Cindy Crawford Style. The two-time Playboy cover babe may be less exposed—figuratively and literally—than in the past, but her days are busier than ever. “I work as much now as I did then,” says the former House of Style host. “It’s just different work.”

    That Crawford has managed to thrive as a businesswoman is no surprise to anyone who has followed her career. The former high school valedictorian from DeKalb, Illinois, who left behind a college scholarship to study engineering when modelling came calling, has always been known as a hard worker and a total professional. If there was a tantrum (or a cellphone) being thrown backstage at a fashion show, it wasn’t Crawford. Veteran fashion editor Sarah Walter, who worked on shoots with Crawford for British Vogue, put it this way to The Times Magazine: “She was never late; a real workhorse who never complained, and this was virtually unique—never dropped the clothes on the floor, always hung them up.”

    Crawford applies that same fierce discipline to her life today, whether it’s making sure her family spends quality time together—biking near their home in Malibu is a favourite pastime—or taking care of her skin, hair and body. Her beauty regimen includes a day cream with antioxidants and sunscreen, a weekly facial mask and microdermabrasion once a month. A favourite workout is hiking with a girlfriend because it does double duty as a workout and therapy session.

    “I used to feel like I needed two hours of hair and makeup to look good,” she recently told The Guardian. “[Now] I think I’m pretty accepting of myself...I feel like I’m taking care of myself and I’m holding together pretty good.”

    When asked what she misses most about her days as the world’s number one supermodel, Crawford can’t really think of anything. “I was never really a diehard fashionista,” she admits, looking graceful and polished in her sleek black Roberto Cavalli dress and perfect nude manicure. “I enjoyed watching trends and seeing what was happening, but I still do that. My favourite thing about being a model was the friends that I made, and I still see those friends.” She continues to prove that the camera loves her in ads for her various brands and the occasional magazine spread, like a much-talked-about Allure shoot from last year in which she wore nothing but eyeliner and soap lather. “I haven’t really had time to miss modelling because I haven’t really been away from it,” she says. “It’s just shifted in a different direction.”

    To me the cover looks good but it's the same Cindy face over and over again, just like Kate Moss. Those girls are great, good personnality, great body and face but can't they change a bit from their photos? Linda Evangelista is the queen of transformation but Cindy hum. :rolleyes: lol anyway good cover for me.What do you guys think? By the way the picture of Cindy (b&w) is very similar to me from the Spanish Vogue editorial (she also got the cover) she did in july 2009.

    It's very Vogue Paris, which is probably why I like this. Always great to see Cindy and nice choice of a reprint.

    As a Canadian I hate how lame Canadian fashion magazines are. Once in a blue moon we'll get something nice, but other than that it's just trash imo :rolleyes:

    ^ I agree.

    I mean a magazine like Flare (and Fashion) can be satisfying in a "local" sort of way, where they introduce the reader to a few accessible pieces, but overall they seem to miss the mark. I wish we had one magazine that produced a polished, high-profile style. It comes down to budget I guess. I mean, Max Abadian is sent on a trip to shoot a year's worth of editorials with the same model XD! So um... yeah. Canadian magazines are disappointing.

    Yeah, I don't mind them for the shopping sections because they're showing things that I can buy locally. Flare and Fashion can be okay (I've actually bought a few issues this year), but the worst imo is Elle Canada. I always see that sitting on the shelf untouched for the entire month basically.

    In terms of Canadian fashion magazines, I think Fashion is a much better magazine than Flare. Flare tends to be more of a lifestyle magazine, I find. But I've always enjoyed the content of Fashion. They have a lot of great content on both international and Canadian designers, even though their fashion editorial content is maybe a bit lacking. Of course, there isn't really the budget there.

    As for this cover, I don't like the use of the reprint, so I'm disappointed. I really wish they hadn't used a close-up.
