Cindy Crawford discusses nude Playboy shoots, Kaia and nepotism

Cindy Crawford has revealed she has no regrets over posing nude for Playboy, as she hits back at claims her teen daughter Kaia's success is down to nepotism. 

The 53-year-old supermodel and mother-of-two revealed she is proud of her old shoots and has posed braless under a safari-style shoot for a new shoot. 

Speaking to NET-A-PORTER’s PorterEdit, she said: 'I look back at some of my old Playboy pictures and I think, "Why wasn’t I walking around naked all the time?"

'I’m not getting younger. So I want to celebrate who I am today.'

Cindy posed for two Playboy spreads (from 1988 and 1998), which saw her pose naked for legendary photographer Herb Ritts.  

She has enjoyed a 30-year career in the industry and Cindy is happily married to her husband of 21-years Rande Gerber and they are parents to Kaia, 17 and Presley, 21. 

Cindy says that while her fame has surely given Kaia 'some advantages,' it hasn't opened as many doors as people might think.

She noted: 'Kaia had some advantages. She is my daughter and people know that. 

'But when people say that I bought her a cover of a magazine, I think, if I was going to buy a cover for someone, it would be me! 

'If I could get someone into a show, I would be getting it for myself.'

She also said: 'It was a good thing that she couldn’t work on the runway until she was 16. There are laws about that. After that I couldn’t really hold her back. 

'You hope that all of the advice and guidance and role modeling that you did sticks. That’s the stage of parenting when you think, "Ok, hope you can fly!"' 

But Cindy said she's a real overprotective mother when it comes to people attacking her children on social media.

'I can’t believe how hateful people can be. As much as people put garbage on my Instagram, it doesn’t bother me. But when they do it to my kids I think, grrr. 

'But you’re not supposed to go after [the haters]. It’s shocking.'   

Cindy always believed her own career would only ever last five years.
