After watching “The Super Models” I was reminded once again of the greatness of Cindy Crawford and how she was the perfect example of someone who used her beauty not only to gain money but also to advance her platform for greater causes.

That’s why I had the necessity to write about an event that has more than a cultural resonance: The Albies, which is also something I have never written about in the past. This gave me the chance to talk about a model that I love and something new and interesting for a change.

For the prestigious event, Crawford wore a fuchsia silk satin georgette gown with signature Atelier Versace bustier construction featuring heritage lace intarsia and signature safety pins. Satin straps formed a Versace ‘V’ at the front and back of the design, which took over 500 hours to complete.

According to stylist Tracy Taylor, the main reference for the ensemble was the look 75 from the Versace Spring 1994 Ready-to-Wear collection which they tweaked a bit by making some small adjustments like lowering the leg slit and lifting the bustier section a bit higher.

She also combined it with matching fuchsia Lorraine Schwartz pendant earrings, silver liquid metal Jimmy Choo Azia sandals (same model as pictured above, not the same shade), and a mirrored rectangular clutch to match the silver pins on the dress.

Cindy has always been a natural beauty, so there are very few things you could do to add to what’s already there, hence why makeup artist Daniel Martin only enhanced the model’s eyes with a decise trait of black liner and false lashes. The lips were kept nude and he then applied just a touch of peachy blush on her cheek bones.

The hair was styled by Harry Josh in effortless waves. The pro mentioned using the Harry Josh Pro Dryer and the 3 in 1 Ceramic Curling Iron.

As you all may already know, Versace is one of my favorite brands and I will always find the time to revisit their archives and to talk about the infinite ways Donatella finds to inject new life into already timeless pieces.

It is also common knowledge that the history of Versace is intertwined with the rise of the supermodels, their runways were the first global stage where the quartet could showcase its talent, they were truly the first brand to believe in them and that supported their shift from commercial modeling to catwalk modeling.

Crawford often collaborates with stylist Tracy Taylor, someone who has a vast expertise in model styling and incredible knowledge of designer history, you couldn’t ask for someone better if your mind was already set on wearing a vintage inspired piece.

I am sure Donatella was very eager to work with Cindy one again.


The Albie Awards are run by The Clooney Foundation for Justice, and they exist to shine a light on justice defenders who are at risk.

The Albies are named after anti-apartheid hero Justice Albert Albie Sachs, a South African lawyer, activist, writer, and former judge appointed to the first Constitutional Court of South Africa by Nelson Mandela.

He received a lifetime achievement award at the inaugural event. This year, Dr Denis Mukwege from the Republic of Congo received this prestigious award for his work as gynecologist, treating survivors of wartime sexual violence.

The key partners for this year’s event were Charlotte TilburyMicrosoft and Versace.
