Cindy Crawford’s Style Evolution: From Pepsi Girl-Next-Door to Sexy Supermodel

The ageless beauty that is Cindy Crawford, turns 51-years-old today, and the supermodel looks as if she’s been drinking from the fountain of youth all her life. Trademarked for her statuesque figure and famous beauty mark, the 90’s icon has always donned an effortlessly sexy sense of style. Fitted slip dresses with thigh high slits quickly became her staple silhouettes on the red carpet, while t-shirts and high waisted jeans was her “model-off duty” go to –both exuding an uber feminine appeal. Of course, as if you weren’t already on board, Crawford won over the world with her mid-western charm while wearing a simple white tank and cutoff shorts in her early Pepsi commercial. Here, we honor the fashion icon’s style legacy with a round up of her most memorable red carpet looks.
