Cindy Crawford And Christy Turlington Post No Makeup Selfies For Charity, Still Unfairly Gorgeous In Their Forties
The '90s are back. I know. They have been back all year and they could very well be back for the next 12 months or longer. The '90s resurgence is celebrated with fashion and cultural resurrections, like that of Surge soda. Supermodels Cindy Crawford and Christy Turlington were the quintessential, emblematic, and top supermodels of the '90s period, along with Linda Evangelista and Naomi Campbell, of course. They were a fierce foursome and the ruled the runway and the roost when it came to fashion and beauty. At 48 and 45, respectively, both still preternaturally and unfairly gorgeous, and they proved it when Cindy Crawford and Christy Turlington posted no makeup selfies as part of an ice bucket challenge-like charity move.
The "no makeup" makeup look in magazines is totally dominant right now, as well, as Rita Ora's Teen Vogue cover (and other recent mag covers) so deftly illustrates. But the no makeup selfie, taken in bed and beyond, always reigns supreme.
Crawford shared a makeup-less selfie from her cozy and comfy bed, with its crisp white sheets and with her famous mole in full view. She did so as part of the UNICEF initiative, under the #WAKEUPCALL hashtag. Crawford then called out her fellow mega model Turlington to do the same, and she did, in turn making the requests of others.
Basically, the initiative asks you to post a just-woke-up selfie and through hashtagging, it raises awareness and funds, and draws attention to the issues currently plaguing Syria. Whatever it takes to get people's attention, right?
Seeing '90s models without a drop of foundation, blush, and lipstick on their visages is so much more fun and inspiring than watching your fave celeb get doused by a bucket of chilly water, isn't it?
The aforementioned Campbell actually posted a photo of herself in bed, with her blunt and beautiful bangs skimming her brows, for this project earlier this month. In case you missed it, it's below.
The '90s glamazon contingent is getting better and more beautiful with age. And they are a socially conscious bunch, making them even more inspiring. This initiative is one of the best ways that the '90s are back. That and maybe the upcoming Dumb and Dumber sequel.
