Cindy Crawford Explains The Reason Behind Posing Nude For ‘Playboy’

Cindy Crawford in her career’s initial days was identified as the all-American girl next door which all changed after she did a nude photoshoot for the popular magazine ‘Playboy.’ In ‘The Super Models’ a documentary on Apple TV that documents the lives of supermodels Cindy reveals the reason for doing the nude photoshoot.

She rebelled against her reputation of being a girl next door to do this photoshoot in 1988 for Playboy which created a lot of controversy from her fans. But this choice also helped her launch her career to even greater success when she got the chance to host MTV’s ‘House of Style.’

In the second episode of ‘The Super Models’ documentary Crawford says that becoming the face of Revlon had offered her job security at a certain level and also the freedom to pursue other adventurous projects.

So when in 1988 Crawford had been asked to do the photoshoot for Playboy she said, “Everyone in my life at the time thought I shouldn’t do Playboy. My modeling agency didn’t feel that that fit into the types of jobs I should be doing. I think the brand still had a connotation to it that maybe scared some people off.”

She goes on to further explain that she understood what the platform of the magazine stands for and that posing for Playboy would be outside the normal course as a Vogue model during that time. Yet she still felt drawn towards the project which led to the photoshoot. She says,”I don’t know, there was just something about it that intrigued me. So against the advice of my agents, I said ‘yes.'”

Cincy says the offer for the photoshoot came through Herb Ritts who is a famed fashion photographer who she worked with previously that made her more interested towards the project. She mentions how she did not want to be paid much for the shoot if the publication gave the control of her images and right to end the narrative if she didn’t like it.

She concluded saying she “never felt like a victim of that decision.”
