With a resume and real estate portfolio like Cindy Crawford’s, it’s easy to be envious of the supermodel and her jet-set life. But nothing prepared us for the coveting that would ensue when we peeped her Malibu closet — which is the size of many people’s first apartments. And better organized, too.
The featured closet in her Malibu home is a masterful walk-in, dressing room, vanity, and master bath in one — fitting for the original supermodel, who waxes nostalgic to Vogue in this recent 360-degree video tour about how she came up in the days when there were no everyday stylists, even for celebrities.
An absolute archive of 90s trends, from the Versace bandage dress that she wore to the VMAs in 1991 (the same year she and her fellow OG supermodels walked the Fall 1991 fashion week runway for Versace while lip-synching to George Michael’s “Freedom”) to the iconic cutoffs she wore in the legendary 1992 Pepsi Superbowl commercial, Crawford’s wardrobe is as aspirational as the room she preserves it in for posterity. (Like for model-of-the-moment teen daughter Kaia Gerber, who herself recently walked the catwalk at New York Fashion Week and wants to know why mom was hiding that bandage dress from her.)
The “Midwestern girl” (who was valedictorian of her Illinois high school class and attended Northwestern in Chicago on a full scholarship for chemical engineering before becoming a supermodel) also has an enviable collection of hats, displayed with prowess on pegs surrounding that classic lighted vanity mirror. There’s also a contemporary peg wall for all of Crawford’s scarves — like the Julia Child of fashion accessories.
The “California casual” star says she “feels most like herself in jeans” however, and the style of her epic closet is equally classic: whitewashed cottage-style ceiling; built-in white drawers and vanity with brass hardware; iconic Hollywood Regency lighted mirror with exposed bulbs; and the cherry on top, loads of woven wood shade-covered windows and sliding glass doors out to a small balcony to let in all the natural light (maybe even an ocean breeze) a girl could want while getting dressed to the nines.
Or check out the new $11.6 million home the absolutely ageless star and husband Rande Gerber just bought in Beverly Hills last month, which we featured along with all the photos from the listing. (We’re desperately anxious to see how they decorate it and make it their own, as we know you are, too.)
