Cindy Crawford: ‘I don’t need people pointing out I don’t look 20’

Cindy-Crawford-age-3 - Cindy Crawford: 'I don't need people pointing out I don't look 20'

On being criticized on Instagram for not looking like she did at age 20:

I don’t need everyone on Instagram pointing out that I don’t look the same way I did when I was 20. I know that. Sometimes when you’re in the public eye, it can be hard, and that’s where you kind of have to work on yourself. No matter what I do, I’m not going to look 20 or 30. I just want to look great for 50. I exercise, eat healthy and take really good care of my skin. There’s pressure on women to do the undoable, which is not age. But it’s about looking great for however old you are, regardless of what that number is.

Last year, Cindy raised a few eyebrows when she was quoted saying:

I always tease my daughter (14) – who everyone agrees, is a mini-me – and say ‘You have my old hair – I want it back!’ or, ‘You have my old legs – I want them back.’

Ashley Graham: “I hit the beauty jackpot, I get it”

On her big break and becoming a super famous model:

For 10 years I’d been told I was always going to be a catalog girl, never a cover girl. Well, I got with IMG and did five covers in a year, boom, boom, boom. See, if you have a pretty face doors will open, but your job isn’t just to walk through them, it’s to get invited back.

On the fact that she is genetically blessed, but that’s not enough:

Look, I hit the beauty jackpot, I get it, but that’s not enough, you’ve got to have more to have longevity in this business. It’s always been, “OK, so what can I do now?”

31 year-old Victoria’s Secret beauty Izabel Goulart is known for her ultra toned physique and low body fat percentage that she flaunts on the catwalks while wearing nothing but sexy lingerie – and recently, the gorgeous Alessandra Ambrosio-lookalike beauty detailed her model workout routine:

On her favorite types of exercises:

Often, I’ll do a quick workout in my hotel room consisting of exercises for the legs, glutes, abs, and arms with my own body weight.

On her model workout routine while traveling:

I always have a jump rope, a medicine ball I can inflate, and a band in my suitcase. It’s a great kit to have for travel.

On the craziest place where she’s ever workout out:

I was flying with my brother and he challenged me to work out on the airplane. He thought it was funny—and I did it!

Gigi Hadid on Her Runway Walk: “Obviously I’m not the best”

gigi-hadid-legs-runway

Gigi Hadid has transformed herself in the past years from a bubbly and more athletic-looking model that mostly did sexy photo-shoots to a high-fashion, much skinnier model. And this week, the blonde beauty opened up about her runway walk and how it definitely needs work.

On her career as a runway model:

Before I started modeling, I was more into photographers. I studied a lot how models made pictures in the sense that you have to be a positive part of a picture and make it better. And that’s what is really important for me on set. There’s some people that are bad at looking at monitors and some people that are good looking at monitors. And monitors really help me because I’m able to look at a picture and see where I fit into it, see what I can add to the picture instead of just being a person that’s on the page.

“But the runway thing, it’s funny because obviously I’m not the best on the runway. But what do you do? When you’re the face of a brand you show up to the show. My first show people were already expecting a lot more from me than I [was capable of at the time]. I never was taught how to walk on the runway. And maybe that’s because it moved really quickly for me, that people just assumed that that was something I knew. So, you know, a year and a half later, I’m still learning. I got some compliments on my Tom Ford show, so I’m getting better. I’m working on it, but I’m human. I still get insecure on the runway, but it’s really exciting for me because I want to get better. I love being on the runway.

… says Gigi.

People’s response? Check below:

Lea Michele: “I get a lot of compliments on my legs, which is funny for a short girl”

On why the scale doesn’t determine her self-worth:

“As I get older, my body is always changing. Right now I have so much energy, my skin looks good, and my butt is higher than it’s ever been. I’ve been skinnier and I’ve been a little bit bigger, and I’m never hard on myself one way or the other. The fact that I’m active, eating well, and taking care of myself is all that matters—not a number.”

On why she loves her shape:

“I love my shape because it’s unique to me. I’m 5’2”, and I get a lot of compliments on my legs, which is funny for a short girl. But they’re one of my favorite things about my body.”

On learning to listen to her body:

“If I have one of those days when I don’t want to work out, I ask myself why. I’ve learned how to listen to my body and know what I need in that moment. And I’m grateful for that. It took me a very long time to get to this place. Now I can tell when my body is saying to take a break from working out, or when it’s saying, No, you’re being a little lazy, so that I can push myself to get going.”

On what she eats:

“I was vegan for a while, I was vegetarian for 10 years, and now I’ve incorporated meat back into my diet. I eat as healthy as possible because I know food fuels me. I usually start my day with avocado toast or a green smoothie. I love a big salad for lunch; I’m always concocting recipes like kale Caesar or spinach artichoke salad. For dinner I’m flexible. If I’m going out and I want a bowl of pasta, I’ll eat it. I’m not hard on myself.”

Olympic Skier Lindsey Vonn: “Do I need to lose weight?”

On feeling the pressure to look skinny:

“The more time I spent at these events, the more I began to feel that I didn’t quite fit in. It seemed like everyone was model-thin, with tiny waists and long willowy legs . . . I thought: ‘Should I not wear this dress? Do I need to lose weight if I want to stay socially relevant as an athlete?’”

… writes the professional athlete in her new book.

On whether she always wanted to model:

I knew nothing about fashion growing up, because in Florida you just wear bikinis and flip-flops. But kids can be cruel, and they used to make fun of me for having long legs and bushy eyebrows. My mom would flip through magazines and say, “Look, all these models have that too.” So I decided I wanted to be a model.

On whether she was ever told to lose weight:

All. The. Time. At first I tried to diet to become their image, but eventually I realized that it wasn’t realistic—that this is just the shape of my body. So I had to block them out. I think that the people who are the loudest about wanting to change you are the people with the least amount of vision and creativity.

On people saying she doesn’t have the right look:

Where I grew up, it was considered a great thing to have a curvy body to fill out a bathing suit. For that to be a negative was so confusing to me. And besides, when I started working, I was booked constantly, mostly for catalog work. So when people were saying, “Oh, she doesn’t have the right look for a model,” I thought, Then why am I working every single day? There are so many different directions you can take in the modeling industry, so many ways to be successful.

… says Kate in Glamour.
