Iconic model Cindy Crawford turns 49-years-old this February 20th.
Still in great shape and a mother-of-two.
But now an un-retouched 2013 magazine lay-out photo has surfaced of the sexy star, and it is causing a lot of BUZZ.
As we've all learned by now, photo-shopping is a very useful tool in the advertising world. Pretty + perfect sell lots of things. So do young + barely wrinkled.
That is why models have a short shelf life when it comes to their careers.
Cindy has broken all the rules. She has never needed an expiration date.
But take a look at REAL Cindy Crawford from 2013 in a photo shoot for fashion mag Marie Claire. This pic had NOT been photo-shopped and wasn't supposed to be leaked out.
Well, we think Cindy Crawford remains a sexy girl, and appears human for goodness sakes. She's got a healthy, slim, toned body. What's there not to love?!
We like seeing un-retouched photos because they display the realness of a human being. As stunning as Cindy has ALWAYS been, she is in fact, a real person with real imperfections like everyone else on the planet.
But don't feel too badly about Cindy's un-retouched photo, because she is part owner of the successful skin care line Meaningful Beauty, which pulls in a reported $100m a year.
Cindy said this about aging to Women's Wear Daily:
"Beauty changes as I get older. I've always found that beauty and confidence are synonymous. If you feel confident, that's what people see.
"I always tell people to fake it until they make it."
