Cindy Crawford Stars in Marie Claire Mexico December 2013

Cindy Crawford channels Golden-Era Mexican Glamour in the Marie Claire Mexico December 2013 issue.

Stylist Gerard Angula had Mexican actress Maria Felix in mind when he styled Crawford in a series of statement hats and bold jewelry; Crawford even carries a cigar for the cover shot to complete the look. Felix was one of Mexico's famous leading ladies in the 1940s and 50s, appearing in feature films such as 'Enamorada,' 'Río Escondido' and 'Doña Diabla' and winning five Ariel awards (the Mexican Oscar equivalent) over the course of her career.

Those of you who are familiar with Felix will agree that Crawford has done an impeccable job portraying her for this editorial shot by John Russo. Each photo evokes the colorful cocktail of strength, fearlessness and femininity that Felix brought to the screen.
