Cindy Crawford is not trying to recreate her catwalk career with her recent fashion work.

Supermodel Cindy has been part of the style scene since bursting on it in the ’80s, and has worked with everyone from Vogue to Versace.

Despite toying with the idea of retirement when she turned 50 in 2016, Cindy made a return to form when she walked for Donatella Versace’s tribute show to her late brother Gianni during Milan Fashion Week in October (17).

However, those hoping for her to become a runway regular again will be sorely disappointed.

“I’m not trying to recreate my catwalk career. I loved doing it when I did it, but my life has moved on. I’m not holding on to trying to be on the runway,” Cindy mused to Prestige magazine.

“It was fun to revisit that and reconnect with so many people. And it was especially exciting because my daughter (16-year-old Kaia Gerber) was also in the show. I don’t think that’s very normal, for mother and daughter to be in the same show.”

It’s not the first time Cindy has worked with her model daughter though; the 51-year-old beauty was joined by Kaia, son Presley and husband Rande Gerber for an Omega campaign last year, marking the first time the watch brand had tapped a family to front its adverts.

“(The thing I value most in life is) All of those times, with my husband, daughter and my son, (and) our dog… real life. Those are the most important. I’m also very grateful, because when Omega signed me I was a 26-year-old model on the cover of Vogue, and they’ve let me grow up. They don’t expect me still to be that, they’ve let me evolve as a woman,” she smiled of her latest work with Omega.

Edgar Ramirez had fun piling on the pounds to play Gianni Versace but is now struggling to shift the extra weight.

The Venezuelan actor portrays the murdered designer in Ryan Murphy’s second American Crime Story series, with Penelope Cruz playing his sister Donatella Versace, Ricky Martin starring as his lover Antonio D’Amico and Darren Criss taking on the part of killer Andrew Cunanan.

For the role, handsome Edgar had to emulate Gianni’s “typical southern Italian, robust body,” which meant eating more and working out less.

“Boxing basically sculpts your arms and your shoulders in a very natural way, so I needed to let the muscle mass go to convey the body that Gianni had,” he explained to American Vogue of quitting his usual fitness regime of boxing, Pilates, and CrossFit. “I had to put on some weight to fit his measurements. That was the fun part. The hard part is to lose it, so I’m still in the process.”

As well as his body transformation, the Gold actor had to undergo prosthetics to help change his physical appearance. He also swapped his dark hair for Gianni’s receding grey locks.

“It is a bald cap, and then I had four amazing wigs, depending on the time period that we were shooting,” he said, adding that he also had his forehead and hairline reshaped, which left him feeling “like a Conehead”.

“Impersonation is flat; it’s not alive. In the end, (the goal) is to capture what his essence might have been.”

The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story premiered on U.S. TV earlier this month (Jan18).
