It's safe to say Cindy Crawford never had those awkward teenage years! The 47-year-old tweeted a pic of her very first modeling gig as a fresh-faced 16-year-old beauty in DeKalb, Illinois, on Thursday, writing "My very first 'cover' during high school in DeKalb, shot in my high school boyfriend's backyard..."
The snapshot was taken for the cover of the DeKalb Nite Weekly Communiversity Issue on November 3, 1982. Little did young Cindy in a teeny bikini know that it was the start to something really amazing. Even at that age, she knew exactly how to pose!
Somehow we're not surprised that Crawford became a world-famous supermodel ... even though it seems like she is shocked about her fame following this photo. In a follow-up tweet, she said, "Believe me when I say I had absolutely no idea where that photo would lead to!"
While the picture is stunning, the newspaper really wasn't joking when they wrote the caption, "Save this Article" at the top of the issue -- who knew that would become such a good idea so many years later?
Check out this video to see where Cindy's modeling roots all began, and be sure to tune in to "omg! Insider" on TV tonight for all the latest in entertainment.
