UPDATE: Cindy Crawford is speaking out and making it clear she's not 100 percent saying goodbye to modeling.
"Every year, I tell my kids I'm retiring. It's a running joke in our family. And yet every year, opportunities pop up that really excite me," she shared on Instagram Monday afternoon. "While it's true that I'm eager to shift my focus a bit to concentrate on my businesses, friends and family — I'm not making any final statements (not all headlines tell the whole story!). I have loved being part of the fashion industry for the past 30 years—and if that time has taught me anything, it's this: never say never. Thanks for all the support, I'm so excited for what 2016 holds! xo Cindy"
Cindy Crawford may be ready to say goodbye to modeling.
As the supermodel eagerly waits to turn 50 in February, Rande Gerber's leading lady is looking back at her career and suggesting to readers that retirement may be quickly approaching.
"I feel like I'm allowing that to have been great, and I'm celebrating it. And 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 in the February issue of United Airlines' Rhapsody magazine. "I've done it. I've worked with all these incredible photographers. What else do I need to do?"
She continued, "I can't keep reinventing myself. I shouldn't have to keep proving myself. I don't want to."
