Cindy Crawford is photographed for Town & Country magazine in Malibu by Victor Demarchelier wearing Louis Vuitton dress (subscriber cover), a Valentino swimsuit and jewels by Van Cleef & Arpels. The 52 year old supermodel opens up to the magazine on being a “Model Matriarch.” She gets candid on how she and husband, Rande Gerber, are raising two young children in the fashion industry, why she isn’t worried anyone will mess with her kids, and the advice she bestows upon them.
On her relationship with daughter, Kaia Gerber: “…We talk every day, at least, and text. If she doesn’t text me back within 15 minutes, I do one in all caps and a lot of exclamation points. Just respond, okay? Or else I’m going to track you through your Uber account.”
On being a mother of two rising young models: “I’m really lucky, because I don’t have a #MeToo story. As far as being a mother of two young people going into fashion, of course I worry. But let’s be honest. My kids are blessed in that business because they aren’t coming in as unknowns. People will know I will come after them if they mess with my kids.”
On giving her children the confidence to stand up for themselves on modeling jobs: “I’ve done nude photos, lots. The only ones I regretted were the ones that I kind of got talked into. I don’t want my children to ever look back and think, ‘Gosh, I wish I hadn’t done that.’ I want to empower them to just say, ‘I’m outta here.’” (source)
