Cindy Crawford Releasing New Book
Supermodel Cindy Crawford is about to take on another title: author. In fall 2015 Crawford will team up with Rizzoli and launch a book about her career and the lessons she’s learned. Crawford said, “It’s not a biography. It’s sort of a hybrid book. It’ll come out in the fall before I turn 50, so it’s kind of a way to celebrate turning 50 as opposed to dreading it.” On top of the book Crawford is also busy building her skin care line, Meaningful Beauty.
