Cindy Crawford took to Instagram Wednesday contemplating how she will ring in 2021 in memorable fashion.
‘Figuring out ways to make New Year’s eve at home feel special (besides a flashy light fixture and good playlist)’ the supermodel, 54, said on Instagram. ‘Any ideas?
Crawford, who’s mother to 19-year-old daughter Kaia and 21-year-old son Presley with husband Rande Gerber, 58, was smiling as she posed under a chandelier in an opulent room from her abode.

The catwalk icon received responses from celeb friends including fellow supermodel Helena Christensen who wrote, ‘Tequila and red lips;’ and famed actresses Michelle Pfeiffer and Diane Keaton, who each left emoji hearts.
Crawford spoke with the beauty outlet Byrdie in July in comparing how the modeling industry has changed and stayed the same since she began her career in the 1980s, as both of her kids are professional models.
‘The actual act of modeling – of being in a show or being in front of a camera – is the same today, I think, as it was when I first started out,’ she said. ‘What’s amazing is how Presley or Kaia will be working with a stylist or a photographer that I used to work with. A lot of the players are the same.’
The Illinois native said that ‘the biggest difference for them is the digital, social media part of it,’ as models are expected to illuminate all aspects of their lives.

‘Then, we didn’t really worry about “model-off-duty” style,’ she said. ‘We didn’t have stylists for what we were wearing to a show; you were just doing a show. The good thing with Kaia is that I think because she sees how I am about it, she’s adopting a similar attitude, which is that you don’t have to be dressed for Street Style of the Year every second.’
Crawford said ‘it’s so much pressure’ professionally in that sense, as ‘clients look at your social media’ and it ‘matters.’
She added: ‘They make decisions based on that. So I think it makes it an extra layer of work.’
Crawford, who’s appeared on covers of fashion magazines such as Vogue and Cosmopolitan, said that ‘in terms of the beauty business,’ one positive change has come with more diversity.
‘It keeps getting more and more diverse, and I think that’s fantastic,’ said Crawford, who has more than 5 million followers on Instagram. ‘In every way. Because of social media, everyone is a model in their own right. And we’re seeing all different types of beauty reflected in a much more extensive way.
‘From weight to height to even natural makeup versus a lot of makeup. There is no longer just one ideal of beauty.’
