Crawford says her recently released book, Becoming Cindy Crawford, was a way to celebrate her modeling career.
"I’m sure I'll have my picture taken for 10 more years, but not as a model anymore. And that's OK," she said. "I’ve worked with all these incredible photographers. What else do I need to do? I can't keep reinventing myself. I shouldn’t have to keep proving myself. I don’t want to."
While Crawford quit modeling full-time in 2000, she continued to pose professionally, including for last month's stunning Balmain campaign that saw her reunited with her '90s supermodel contemporaries Naomi Campbell and Claudia Schiffer.
"Today, models are expected to be so tiny and I worry about that for her, because that was never my natural body type and I don't think it'll be hers either," Crawford told The Edit. "Still, I'll say to her, 'Enjoy carbs while you can!'"
