I’ve always thought Cynthia Bailey was one of the most beautiful housewives. She seems to look sexy yet classy at the same time (something more housewives need to master!) Cynthia has a long history with fashion, working as a top model and even worked with Tyra Banks. So what does Cynthia think of the new crop of girls walking the runway?
If you recall, fellow former supermodel Rebecca Romajin criticized supermodels Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid insinuating that they were more Instagram models vs. international fashion icons. Not surprisingly, Yolanda Hadid came to the girls defense, supporting what many already knew: a famous name may get your foot in the door but hard work will get you to the top. So what is Cynthia Bailey’s professional take on it?
According to Cynthia: “I think in terms of the modeling industry today with the Gigis and the [Kendalls], it’s just a different world. It’s very different from when I was coming up. Social media wasn’t around when I was coming up. The industry has just changed a lot.”
Cynthia does give the girls credit saying that they are “beautiful girls.” “I really feel like at this point, it’s personality [that makes a model successful.] If you’re an influencer… there’s a lot of different opportunities.”
As for her statuesque daughter Noelle?
“I decided to make my daughter Noelle the face of CARGO because she is a beautiful, smart, and well rounded young lady. She is a younger version of me, and appeals to a more youthful demographic. Noelle is the perfect choice to represent the Cynthia Bailey brand. She has expressed an interest in modeling, and I will do everything I can to support her. The LA CARGO launch and the reveal was a huge success. Noelle did an amazing job. She has a very promising career ahead of her. I am very proud of her.”
I think all girls are beautiful and think all are great additions to the modeling world. I also think Cynthia could give some of the younger girls a run for their money as she definitely still has “it”!
