CHICAGO (AP) _ Model Cindy Crawford will present Chicago photographer Victor Skrebneski, who once banned her from his studio, the city’s Fifth Star Award.

The 86-year-old Skrebneski is famed for his advertising photographs for Estee Lauder, Chanel and Givenchy, and black-and-white portraits of celebrities, including Dennis Hopper, Bette Davis and Sharon Stone.

Skrebneski banned Crawford from his North Side studio when she was a 19-year-old and elected to take a 10-day editorial job in Egypt that interfered with her catalogue shoot with Skrebneski.

In her book, “Becoming,” the 50-year-old Crawford wrote she had hoped Skrebneski would be gracious about her decision. She wrote Skrebneski didn’t speak to her for 15 years.

Crawford told the Chicago Tribune she now has a real friendship with Skrebneski, and being able to give him the award Wednesday “just feels great.”
