Have you noticed the sky is a bit brighter today? The sun a touch more radiant? The birds chirping in a truly melodious way?
You were not mistaken.
Today, the Heavens are shining down on us to mark the 53rd birthday of supermodel and force of nature Cindy Crawford.
In 53 years of gracing the Earth with her majesty, Cindy has accomplished a lot. She graduated from her high school as valedictorian before nabbing a scholarship to Northwestern to study chemical engineering. She gave all that up, however, to begin her modeling career in the late '80s, when she began her path to becoming a sex-icon.
By the mid '90s, America reached peak Cindy. The brunette beauty had convinced an entire generation of Americans to switch to Pepsi, she had owned the runway for Calvin Klein, Christian Dior, and Valentino (among others), and she'd appeared in some of the most iconic fashion images of all time.
