Lot Essay

Cindy Crawford's decision to pose for Playboy came not long after seeing her friend Paulina Porizkova's 1987 pictorial and Herb Ritts' shoot with Brigitte Nielsen later that year. In a 1993 interview for the magazine, Crawford reflected back on her decision, "When I did Playboy, I got letters from women who didn't consider it feminist to do nude photographs. I thought the whole point of being a feminist was that you got to make your own choices."
