Cindy Crawford and her daughter sat down for an interview in which Cindy talked about her experience with social media as well as her continued self-consciousness.
Cindy explains, while also discussing her new book.
“As much as I did the book for my fans who grew up with me, it’s also for those people to share with their daughter the same way I’ve shared it with you.”
Cindy’s daughter is also her social media advisor and is in charge of her online presence.
In an Associated Press interview, Cindy admits her daughter is a dead ringer for herself and that this would help her in a modelling career.

Cindy Crawford on May 31, 2013 in Los Angeles, California.
Cindy Crawford was “America’s most celebrated fashion model and one of the most famous in the world.” Her fame in the 1980s and 1990s was shared with Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell as the world of fashion and runway transformed itself into a platform for women models to empower themselves.
Her big paparazzi moment came with a brief marriage to Richard Gere, but after the divorce she married her long time partner Rande Gerber. Cindy Crawford now has two children, Presley and Kaia, and is still married to Gerber.
Cindy Crawford reveals what she learned from ex-husband Richard Gere: http://t.co/xZRCUlWe5Y

Crawford does not speak favorably about her relationship with Gere saying only that she “learned to be famous” with him and that she also learned “personal things,” but in all her interviews, she refuses to speak any more about it out of “courtesy” for her first husband. She speaks briefly in her book about the relationship, reports The Telegraph, particularly in how her age of 23 meant she had not become herself completely.
Cindy speaks on the empowerment of selfies. Cindy is no stranger to cameras and so her insights into selfies and their place in boosting self-image comes from the guru model herself.
“Every 14-year-old girl these days is a model in their own life because so much of their social media and just their interaction are through selfies.”
Such interaction, Cindy Crawford believes, is not unhealthy as it provides experience in photography. While parents and teachers might view the use of camera phones as distractions from education, it might indeed be true that the impulse to use cameras to feature the best angle for oneself or a group develops photography and modelling skills together.
This puts a whole new spin on the selfie, which the media tends to associate with vanity. As it turns out, the “art” of the selfie is vocational experience for professional modelling. Now every aspiring young talent can take the perfect angle. Who would have thought?
