Crawford’s modeling career began when she was still in high school. She won the Elite Model Management’s Look of the Year contest when she was 17 and her life was never the same. She left DeKalb, Illinois for New York City and became one of the most famous faces in the world.
After modeling for nearly 20 years, Crawford retired in 2000. She has created a line of cosmetics, called Meaningful Beauty, and has had her own furniture line sold in J.C. Penneys. She returned to modeling in 2011 and has even appeared in print with her daughter.
