Cindy Crawford is officially saying goodbye to the modeling world.

The legendary supermodel, who will turn 50 on Feb. 20, told United Airlines’ Rhapsody magazine that she plans to retire once she hits her sixth decade.

“I’m sure I’ll have my picture taken for 10 more years, but not as a model anymore,” Crawford says in the magazine’s February issue. “And that’s okay. I’ve done it. I’ve worked with all these incredible photographers.”

“What else do I need to do? I can’t keep reinventing myself,” she added. “I shouldn’t have to keep proving myself. I don’t want to.”
Crawford certainly can retire knowing she’s had a full career — and life. Aside from being one of the iconic supermodels of the ’90s, the 5-foot-9-inch beauty is also mother to two children — Kaia Jordan Gerber and Presely Walker Gerber, both models-on-the-rise in their own right — and is married to Rande Gerber.
