Cindy Crawford announced plans to retire from modeling in an interview for the February edition of United Airlines' in-flight magazines.

Crawford, who turns 50 on Feb. 20, told Rhapsody and United Hemispheres magazines that her book, "Becoming Cindy Crawford," was her way to "maybe not say goodbye . . . but move on" from her career as a model.

"I feel like I'm allowing (the book) to have been great, and I'm celebrating it," Crawford said in the publications. "And 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 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," she continued.

"Becoming Cindy Crawford" was released in September and chronicles her career in words and pictures during the "golden age of the supermodel in the 1990s," according to an Amazon description of the New York Times best-seller.

"She blazed a trail during that decade, seamlessly moving between the runway to unconventional outlets, such as cutting-edge MTV, Super Bowl commercials, and even Playboy magazine," the description reads.

Crawford recently joined fellow supermodels Naomi Campbell and Claudia Schiffer for the Balmain Spring/Summer 2016 campaign.


"To make sure the Balmain by Olivier Rousteing's Spring/Summer 2016 campaign was major-league hot, the house reunited three of the most famous supermodels in the universe — Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, and Claudia Schiffer," Cosmopolitan magazine reported last month.

"Premiering the house's S/S'16 collection originally debuted at Paris Fashion Week, the beauties strike a pose soaking in the sun. The images were shot in black & white by Steven Klein and directed by Pascal Dangin," the magazine continued.

Crawford said in Hemispheres magazine that she found herself recently questioning her happiness as she grew older.

"I see my daughter — you spend your teenage years wanting to be older," she said. "When are you just happy where you are? . . . I'm out on book tour. I don't look the same that I did 25 years ago, and I don't want to disappoint. Maybe that’s the Midwesterner in me. I want them to like me. But when do we just be happy where we are?"
