Cindy Crawford is calling it quits.
The soon-to-be 50-year-old supermodel tells Rhapsody magazine (the in-flight publication of United Airlines) that she plans to retire from modeling when she officially hits the half-century mark, the New York Post reported.
“I’m sure I’ll have my picture taken for 10 more years, but not as a model anymore,” Crawford says in the magazine’s February edition. “And that’s OK. I’ve done it. I’ve worked with all these incredible photographers.
“What else do I need to do? I can’t keep reinventing myself.”
It seems Crawford is ready to put her high heels aside to make way for the next generation of models, including her own daughter, Kaia, 14.
“They are all taking pictures of themselves, or having their friends take pictures for their social media,” Cindy said of her daughter’s blossoming career as a model. “Kaia would be modeling even if she weren’t modeling. All the girls are modeling. They are not dependent only on how a photographer sees them. They have a direct relationship with their fans.”
And the brunette beauty says that looking back over her career, she now feels proud of her achievements, even if in the past she sometimes struggled to justify her choice of industry.
“I was like, I love my job, but am I really that superficial that I just love getting my hair and makeup done and looking beautiful?” she revealed. “And what I realized was that what I really love and am passionate about is communication,” she added. “And the way that I have been communicating for the past 30 years has been through pictures.”
