BERLIN, Oct 27, 2009 (AFP) - US former supermodel Cindy Crawford says she would have little chance of making it big in the fashion business today with her curvy figure, a German celebrity magazine reported Tuesday 27 October.

"I would not have become a supermodel in 2009. I look too healthy," Crawford told Bunte.
"A body like mine with big breasts, normal thighs and toned upper arms" is no longer what the industry is looking for, she said.
Crawford, 43, said she was happy with her physique but worried about the effects of ageing like wrinkles and bulges.
"That's why I like being in my 40s so much -- being at peace with yourself, knowing about your strengths beyond being pretty," she said.
Crawford, known for her trademark beauty spot above her upper lip, briefly studied chemical engineering before becoming one of the world's most popular cover girls in the 1980s and 1990s.
