You would have to live under a rock not to know who Cindy Crawford is. The ultra-famous supermodel has been known in popular consciousness since her days as a Victoria Secret model. Those were the magical days of her youth, mind you, when her body and spirit were enlivened with positivity and the ambition that all young successful people have. It was her body and her addictive smile that caught peoples attention when Cindy was 25, and it appears she still has the same flawless attributes at 51 as she did as a young model out on the scene.
You might think that age would leave quite a bit of a mark on someone over 50. However, recent Instagram posts from Cindy’s official page show a woman that looks better than most of us who are still under 40 look! Wow, what an inspiration!
She was on a vacation with her husband when the footage was taken. It is a quick snap of her getting out of a swimming pool in what looks like the Bahamas. Some tropical paradise is behind her, but the eyes can’t help but be drawn to her amazing physique.
She went for a quick dip and shared her story on Instagram. She emerges out of the water right in front of the camera and makes a turn toward the camera with her seductive eyes. Clad in a blue bikini, she poses for the camera like she did back in the 90s. Her video was captioned with “morning dip” and she finished off her message to the people with a little bikini symbol. True simplicity and excellence in action from a woman who knows how to take care of herself.
The issues of age have not be lost on Cindy. In a recent interview with The Cut she lays it all on the line, sharing her thoughts about the issue of aging and wanting to be as personal and clear as could be.
“Sometimes I say for a shoot as I get older, ‘Look, guys, I have no idea what I’ll look like when I get up. I’ll wake up at 6, but I’m just saying you won’t want to shoot the close up until after 9.” She shoes a measure of humility and guilt when she adds “You feel a little apologetic that you can’t deliver in the same way that you could when you were 20 or 25.”
The challenge is real for a woman her, who must face the fact that modeling gets harder with age.
“Your skin, your hair, your body. I take care of myself, but I know that I’m a 51-year old lady. There are times when that’s hard, and I’m also sure it’s hard for my sisters who aren’t models. I want to do my job well, and I want to deliver, but I also know that what I can offer now is different from what I had to offer at 25.”
It must be even more magnified for Cindy because her daughter Kaia Gerber is getting into the fashion game. “I have pillow lines that last so much longer now. Kaia can wake up, and even if she’s puffy from having sushi the night before, her face goes back to normal in 15 minutes!” exclaimed Cindy, clearly a little jealous of her up-and-coming daughter.
