Becoming : Cindy Crawford Hardback
International supermodel Cindy Crawford presents her own personal visual autobiography, the first book to chronicle her life and career, featuring some of her most memorable images. Crawford began modeling as a teenager, first shot by Arthur Elgort, followed quickly with a Vogue cover shot by Avedon.
She was the cornerstone of the Golden Age of the Supermodel in the 1990s, and the first supermodel with a distinctive personality and "voice," and blazed a trail in the '90s, seamlessly moving between the runway to other unconventional outlets and moments: appearing in Playboy Magazine (twice!); appearing in George Michael's groundbreaking video "Freedom"; becoming the face of MTV's fashion show House of Style; and inflaming young hearts everywhere with a star turn in the iconic Pepsi commercial, to name only a few. On the eve of her fiftieth birthday, this book includes observations by Crawford about her earliest modeling years; thoughts about various points of her career; her responsibilities as a public figure; her recent transitions into the business world, and her feelings about being a mother, and turning fifty.
Photographs span her entire career, beginning from the late 1980s, and include images by almost every top name in fashion photography.
Photographers whose work will appear in this book include: Annie Leibovitz, Arthur Elgort, Helmut Newton, Herb Ritts, Irving Penn, Mario Testino, Patrick Demarchelier, Peter Lindbergh, and Richard Avedon, among others.
