Cindy Crawford was once the most desirable woman in the world, what with her athletic figure and her lovely thick hair and that mole that she'd take off and flick into people's soup at important dinner parties.
But when it comes to skincare, Cindy Crawford has been living a lie. Even though she's earnt piles of cash promoting her 'look at my brilliant skin' beauty products, Cindy Crawford has recently admitted to going to have her face filled up with Botox, vitamins and collagen quite a lot over the years. Cuh – and we just thought she was naturally emotionless!
Seriously, who'd be a supermodel? Sure, the perks are pretty good – like getting paid millions of quid to stand around looking miserable in some nice clothes, but things have a nasty habit of turning sour. Naomi Campbell keeps getting accused of injuring her staff with telephones, for instance, while Christie Brinkley's husband ran off with a child and Kate Moss has to kiss that dirty singer all the time. For a while it looked like the worst it was going to get for Cindy Crawford was starring in Fair Game – and to be fair that's bad enough for anyone – but now Cindy Crawford is dropping something of a bombshell; she's been keeping young-looking with Botox injections and that.
"What's wrong with that?" you're probably asking, "After all, Anne Robinson uses Botox a lot and she's just as sexy as ever." And that's completely true – ahem – but Cindy Crawford is in hot water because in the past she's put her lovely Botoxy skin down to constant use of her range of Cindy Crawford Meaningful Beauty products that she promotes at any given opportunity. Cindy Crawford says of her Meaningful Beauty range:
"I believe Meaningful Beauty is the best skin care available, and soon you will be able to discover the difference yourself. They treat your skin in a meaningful way now for more beautiful, younger-looking skin tomorrow."
Yeah, well, that and going to a cosmetic surgeon all the time and letting him stab naturally-occurring poisonous toxins into her face all the time. Cindy Crawford told Gala magazine:
"I'm not going to lie to myself. Past a certain age, creams work on the texture of your skin but, in order to restore elasticity, all I can really count on is vitamin injections, Botox and collagen… I have a very simple, healthy life, which works miracles. I drink a lot of water, watch what I eat and exercise. But I owe the quality of my skin to my cosmetic surgeon."
All these revelations of Cindy Crawford's cosmetic surgery will no doubt upset the hard-working women who have spent the last 11 years shelling out on expensive Cindy Crawford skincreams, as they've now discovered they've been going about trying to look like Cindy Crawford completely the wrong way, and jeopardising their chances of getting married to Richard Gere, wearing fur coats a lot and making really fucking dreadful erotic thrillers with one of the more identikit Baldwin brothers as a result.
