Time Travel with Cindy Crawford
When we heard that Cindy Crawford was travelling to India, we scanned through our archives and pulled out an interview we had done with her 20 years ago. The brand ambassadress for Omega, is as high-spirited as she was on her last visit, the only difference being, this time she is accompanied by her kids “who are wandering around and getting very drenched.” Baffled by the Mumbai monsoon, she quips, “How do you get around? You just can’t stay dry! Don’t you have to worry about your shoes?” And we like her already!
Looking slimmer than most of us would at her age, she is poised and rests comfortably knowing that her red pumps aren’t subjected to the maddening rain. Well, even though there are no tell-tale signs of ageing, you can tell that Cindy Crawford has grown with the brand. She says that her many travels and experiences have inspired and moulded her personal life. On that note, we indulge in a quick time travel session with Cindy Crawford.
Your first time-piece… “A Swatch Jelly… remember the clear ones?”
On your wrist right now… “Omega Constellation Pluma.”
Your first visit to India… “It was for a British fashion publication and it was to Ladakh and Srinagar. I have never experienced anything like that. Coming from a small town in Illinois to Leh, and sleeping in a tent was a completely different experience. It was so beautiful to see the Himalayas in the background.”
On your skin right now… “Sonia Kashuk make-up.”
In your bookshelf right now… “I recently read All the Light We Cannot See and The Aviator’s Wife.”
In your wardrobe right now… “I just bought a Vince jumpsuit.”
Your first splurge… “It was an Azzedine Alaia dress. I also bought a bodysuit, skirt, jacket and belt from a store in Chicago.”
On your bucket-list… “Definitely Morocco. And I have always wanted to learn French, and be a really good pianist.”
A well-lived life is… “Doing work that you are passionate about. Also, relationships… having a life partner and children. And when you realise that you are not the priority in your own life anymore.”
