Cindy Crawford says being a party girl isn't in her ''DNA''.

The 48-year-old star shot to fame in the 1980s as one of the world's first supermodels and she admits there were a lot of bashes where drugs were readily available.

However, Cindy always avoided that side of the fashion industry, and thinks her upbringing played a big role in why she was able to turn her back on temptation.

In an interview with The Evening Standard newspaper, she revealed: ''I guess for me, it wasn't that hard. It's just not who I am. I was raised in a small town in Illinois and I think those Midwestern qualities served me well. It just wasn't in my DNA to be a party girl, thank God!''

Cindy's 13-year-old daughter Kaia is just at the beginning of her modelling career and the catwalk legend insists she isn't worried about getting involved in the party scene because she was able avoid it.

The brunette beauty - who also has 15-year-old son Presley with her husband Rande Gerber - said: ''When people ask me about my daughter, I feel like I could guide her in the right direction because I was able to navigate it. You can, it is do-able.''
