Speaker Bio

Cindy Crawford is known to the world as one of the original supermodels who defined that pivotal moment when fashion models became stars in their own right. She used her fame as a springboard to launch a career that has spanned more than three decades and resulted in an exceedingly successful and trusted brand representing beauty, fashion, fitness, and home. The DeKalb, Illinois, native’s staying power in a notoriously fickle industry can be credited to her consummate professionalism, keen business savvy, and dedicated approach to every endeavor. These attributes, combined with her timeless beauty, earned her long-term, global contracts with the likes of Revlon, Omega, and Pepsi.

Ms. Crawford went on to create, produce, and star in best-selling exercise videos with personal trainer Radu, and, with Sonia Kashuk, co-wrote Cindy Crawford's Basic Face, an instructional make-up book. These projects honed her entrepreneurial spirit, leading her to enter into a series of strategic partnerships. The first among them is Meaningful Beauty, created with Parisian cosmetic surgeon Jean-Louis Sebagh, who is referred to as the "Youth Guru”. With the help of Guthy-Renker, Meaningful Beauty quickly became one of the company’s best-selling beauty lines. Ms. Crawford has also expanded her Cindy Crawford Home collection, which originated as a partnership with Rooms To Go and is now carried at retailers across the United States and Canada.

Ms. Crawford became a New York Times best-selling author in 2015 with her book Becoming, which chronicles her life through essays accompanied by some of her most iconic photographs.
