Cindy Crawford On Cover of Harper's Bazaar Singapore

Cynthia Ann "Cindy" Crawford was born February 20, 1966 in DeKalb, Illinois, the daughter of Jennifer Sue Crawford-Moluf (née Walker) and John Crawford. She was discovered at the age of 16 by a newspaper photographer. He noticed Cindy at work during her summer job of detasseling corn and took a picture of her. The photo and positive feedback she received were enough to convince her to take up modeling. She entered the Elite Model Management's Look of the Year contest at 17 and was the runner-up. The Elite modeling agency in Chicago then started representing her.

During the 1980s and 1990s, Cindy Crawford was among the most popular supermodels, and a ubiquitous presence on magazine covers, runways, and in fashion campaigns. She was repeatedly and frequently featured on the cover of many magazines.

Crawford is 5 feet 9 inches tall, with brown hair and eyes. Her measurements are 34"-26"-35". Crawford's trademark is a mole (or "beauty mark") above her upper lip. She is so closely associated with this physical feature that she appeared in an advertising campaign for chocolates featuring commercials wherein she "licked off" her own mole. During the beginning of her career, the mole was removed from her earlier modeling pictures, including her first Vogue cover. Her resemblance early in her career to model Gia Carangi led her to being known as "Baby Gia".

Crawford quit modeling in 2000; however, she still appears from time to time in (and on the covers of) fashion magazines in new shoots. She continues to provide celebrity endorsement for a variety of projects.

Crawford came back to modeling in May 2011, landing the cover of May 2011 issue of Vogue Mexico and scored another May cover, striking a pose for Elle China.

According to Daily Mail,  tell on the most recent cover of September 2011 issue of Harper's Bazaar Singapore. which shows the legendary supermodel vamping in a skintight, cut-out bustier from Louis Vuitton's Fall 2011 collection.

The veteran model squeezed her flawless figure into a cutaway leather dress for a dominatrix-inspired photoshoot for September 2011 issue of  Harper's Bazaar Singapore.

After thirty years in the industry, it appears Cindy Crawford is still at the top of her game.

Showcasing her trademark mole with a flash red lipstick, the 45-year old looks as though she hasn't aged a day.

The image, shot in Los Angeles in July, is just one of the two covers for the September edition - one of the magazine industry's most important month. But the mother-of-two admits the job has become a lot harder for aspiring models.

She said the girls on the runaway and in magazines are shrinking and haven't got the curves of their predecessors.

'I just saw the CoverGirl commercial with Taylor Swift and I thought, "Wow, it is so hard for models to get a job these days.

'You have to sing and act, too. There doesn't seem to be as much work specifically just for models.
