The internet went nuts last week when what we were told was an unretouched photo of Cindy Crawford being hot and looking totally normal and not like a Photoshopped mess. It was refreshing, eye-opening (for some) and downright awesome. But now it seems like even THAT was a sham, and Cindy’s people – as well as her husband Rande Gerber, are calling bullshit and saying that “real” photo was actually… a fake.
TMZ obtained a letter from Cindy’s lawyer which claimed that the photo in question was stolen and “maliciously altered”, which… obviously is not great.
In addition, a statement from celebrity photographer John Russo read: “It has been falsely claimed that this photograph represents an un-retouched image of Cindy Crawford. This is not true. It is a fraudulent altered version of my photograph. I am grateful that this fact has been brought to the public’s attention and that corrections are being run in the media.”
And finally, Rande Gerber was not trying to be married to someone who could look so HEINOUS as Cindy did in the original photo, so he felt the need to publish this photo on Instagram from Valentine’s Day:
Well, thank God THAT’s been cleared up. It’s not like anyone’s ever Photoshopped their Instagram pics or anything! I mean, look – I’m not saying Rande’s photos weren’t real or that the other photos weren’t doctored, but like… really? If Cindy was confident and happy in herself, she wouldn’t care which stomach was hers- and considering the original photo was NOT bad to begin with, it looks even worse – and only serves to make women who are perfectly healthy and “normal” feel bad about themselves. Not here for it, sorry Cindy.

Back in December 2013, Cindy Crawford appeared in the Mexico and Latin America version of Marie Claire magazine and did a really lovely photo shoot for the feature. She was 47 at the time and obviously still hot as hell, but she did one picture that was Photoshop-free and unretouched. That picture appeared online this week and everyone lost their damn minds.
Originally the above photo was said to be from an upcoming edition of the magazine, but it was soon revealed to be from a little more than a year ago. No matter – she looks the same and she looks hot, “flaws” and all.

Cindy Crawford has a 13-year-old daughter named Kaia Jordan Gerber and as you can see from the above photo, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Kaia is a model herself and has already had some pretty big campaigns, and something tells me she might follow into her mom’s footsteps as a REALLY successful model within the next 5-10 years.
Cindy and husband Rande Gerber also have a 15-year-old son named Presley Walker, who is also pretty handsome and could easily be a model:
Tyra Banks decided to dress up as 3 major supermodels from past, present, and future (or whatever): Cindy Crawford, Kate Moss (that’s supposed to be Tyra as Kate above), and Cara Delevingne. I think she looks great as Cindy Crawford:
But her Cara Delevingne makeup is just frightening:
Man, Tyra just isn’t good with makeup, is she? Of course she didn’t do it herself. This was all part of a photo project done for Udo Spreitzenbarth for New York Fashion Week. More info is here. Tyra tweeted these photos along with updates like,
Stop by my #NYFW photo tribute to 15 #Supermodels, #Tyra15, 2 see me transformed in2 Kate Upton, Karlie Kloss & more: bit.ly/1apClRq
I really wanna see her as Kate Upton, Ms. Model of the Year.
I think Tyra has their essence down but the makeup is so very White Chicks.
Cannes film festival is going on right now in France and everyone is GLAMMED THE HELL UP. I like it. Here are the looks that stood out to me, for better or worse. But if you want to get right down to it:
BEST: Isla Fisher
WORST: Julianne Moore
I JUST DON’T KNOW: Zhang Yuqi
Carey Mulligan, seen here with Baz Luhrhraznamann. (Luhrmann). She looks gorgeous but holy hell, where’s the rest of her?? Is she okay? Does she know she’s allowed to smile? Even LANA DEL REY is smiling. Jesus.
This post is all about giving props to 45-year old Cindy Crawford, who’s rocking the cover of Vogue Mexico like it’s the early 90s again.
Cindy was pretty much the most beautiful lady in the world when I was growing up (I even named my pet crawfish, Cindy Crawfish, after her,) and it’s amazing to see that in the time it’s taken me to get boobs (sorta,) graduate high school, go to college and work for seven years, that she hasn’t changed one freakin’ bit.
Don’t get it twisted, this isn’t a “Wow, she looks great for her age,” post, this is a “What the hell has she been doing to keep herself looking this good over the years and can she bottle it and sell it to me, please,”-type of thing. I mean, I knew there was some crazy stuff going on over at her house, but not straight-up magic.
Damn, Cindy! Do you, girl! Let’s see you rock out like this in another 20 years, okay?!
Man, this was such a weird story. Remember when some dude was trying to sell pictures of Cindy Crawford’s 7-year-old daughter bound to a chair and gagged? (It was part of a game of Cops & Robbers.) Every single news outlet he approached passed on the photos because there is apparently still a shred of dignity in celebrity journalism. Then he tried repeatedly to get money out of Cindy Crawford and her husband Rande Gerber in exchange for the return of the photos. You can read our full story on it here.
Anyway, the gross dude, Edis Kayalar, an aspiring model, was sentenced to two years behind bars by a German court.
In a statement Wednesday, Crawford and Gerber said, “We want to express our gratitude to the FBI, the U.S. District Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles and the German law-enforcement authorities for their coordination and efforts in this case.”
Kayalar, an aspiring German model, was charged with one count of extortion in U.S. District Court in November and surrendered to German authorities one week later. His case was tried overseas because Germany does not extradite its nationals.
Ew, I’m glad this grossness is over. Good riddance to you, jackass. The sad thing is that you’re kind of hot, and I’d probably be happy if you hit on me in a bar, until someone came over and was like, “Hey, uh, Beet? You know that’s the guy who tried to blackmail Cindy Crawford with pictures of her 7-year-old daughter bound and gagged? You know that, right?” And suddenly you would be NOT AT ALL HOT.
