Vogue‘s September Issue is always a whopper. This year is no exception. One story is SO SO perfect and so perfectly Vogue, I thought I’d share it here. Supermodel Cindy Crawford and her model good-looks entrepeneur husband, Rande (with an e) Gerber, who are business partners and best friends with the other perfect Hollywood couple, Amal and George Clooney in Casamigos Tequila. This story is like a Ralph Lauren ad, if he was selling perfect people. (Come to find out, Alfredo Paredes, a Ralph Lauren executive and good friend, helped with the decorating of the place.)
Thirteen years ago when friends invited them for a week to this spot in Ontario, they fell in love with it. The live in Malibu the rest of the year (of course) but they are “lake people”, they say. Rande spent his summers at camp in New Hampshire, while Cindy’s family used to rent a cabin in Minnesota, where she’s from.
Over the years, the couple, who have now designed seven houses together, from the Upper East Side to Cabo San Lucas, think about their living spaces differently.
“Rande pictures every place filled with people socializing and I’m always saying, ‘But what about when no one is here? Then where are we sitting?’ ”
Cindy turns 50 next year (STFU!) and if time is on her mind, at the lake, it slows to a standstill. She never puts on a watch, and there are no clocks anywhere in the house.
“The point here is to slow everything down. Life moves quickly, but it will wait.”
See the perfect couple, with their perfect kids and their perfect summer getaway. It’s enough to make you sick – if they didn’t seem like the nicest people too.
