In the 1990s, Cindy Crawford was one of the most recognizable people on the planet. She was on every magazine cover and walked every runaway, and by 1995 she was the world’s highest paid model. She’s also credited as being one of the five original “supermodels,” alongside Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista, Tatjana Patitz and Naomi Campbell, who all appeared in George Michael’s David Fincher-directed “Freedom! ’90” music video.
The video’s makeup director, Carol Brown, recalls Crawford “walking across that studio so fearlessly and proudly and not making any sort of a big deal that she was wearing only a G-string.” It’s hard to tell what Crawford was wearing on last night’s Lip Sync Battle, where she recreated her “Freedom! ’90” steamy bathtub look for George Michael impersonator Zachary Quinto, but it’s not much. And it required a lot of tasteful blurring.
Can you blame her? Crawford looks the same in 2016 as she did in 1996. It’s typically sad when people, especially in the entertainment industry, try to recreate the past decades later, but not Crawford. She can parody her iconic Pepsi commercial, and hop back into a bathtub while George Michael and/or Zachary Quinto sing about freedom, because she hasn’t aged a day.
The Gang could learn a thing or two from her.
