Cindy Crawford announces her supermodel retirement just weeks ahead of her 50th birthday....

We've seen her grace the pages of every magazine, campaign and runway for over thirty years. Now, Cindy Crawford is set to retire following her latest appearance in Balmain's Spring/Summer '16 supermodel campaign.

However, as the date of her 50th birthday draws close, February 20, American supermodel, Cindy Crawford reflects on her life-long career and how it's time to bid farewell to life in front of the camera; "I'm sure I'll have my picture taken for 10 more years, but not as a model anymore and that's OK. I've done it. I've worked with all of 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."
