Cindy Crawford’s Dad Originally Thought Modeling Was “Another Name for Prostitution”

"My dad really didn't understand that modeling was a real career."

If there’s one thing dads are going to do (you know, besides never remember any of your friends’ names), it’s be a little overprotective when necessary. Such was the case even for Cindy Crawford, who recently opened up about what her father originally thought of modeling in a teaser clip for Apple TV+’s docuseries, The Super Models.

In a sneak peek of the upcoming series obtained by People, Crawford got candid about her rise to fame while talking about her dad’s initial perception of the modeling industry.



“I never even thought about modeling,” she shared during a confessional shot while wearing a black leather jacket layered over a black midi dress. “I didn't even know it was a real job. I didn't know how I would get from DeKalb, Illinois, to a magazine.”



She added, “My dad really didn't understand that modeling was a real career. He thought modeling was like another name for prostitution. So they came with me to my very first modeling appointment.”

While fans will have to wait until Sept. 10 to hear the rest of Crawford’s story, they’ll also be able to learn about the rise of her fellow modeling legends Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, and Linda Evangelista when the series finally hits Apple TV+ later this month.

"As the fashion industry continues to redefine itself – and women’s roles within it – this is the ultimate story of power and how four women came together to claim it, paving the way for those to follow,” a press release for the show read. “Already forces in their own right, the gravitas they achieved by coming together transcended the industry itself.”

The statement continued, “Their prestige was so extraordinary that it enabled the four to supersede the brands they showcased, making the names Naomi, Cindy, Linda, and Christy as prominent as the designers who styled them. Today, the four supermodels remain on the frontlines of culture through activism, philanthropy, and business prowess.”
