Model Cindy Crawford posts Instagram photo of herself in lace gown

NewYork,Dec30:Cindy Crawford posted an Instagram photo taken by Ruven Afanador for her new cover story in New Beauty magazine.

The 50-year-old looked an ageless beauty, flashing an exquisitely toned leg from the thigh slit of her lace gown.

In the magazine, she’d noted humbly that ‘No matter what I do, I’m not going to look 20, or 30. I just want to look great for 50.’

The photo she’d posted Thursday was black and white and saw her lying on her back, her hair fanning out behind her head as she stared off.

A light fringe snaked across the neckline of the gown, which draped about her enviably svelte frame and complemented her dark ear studs.

Her secret, she claims, is simply to ‘exercise, eat healthy and take really good care of my skin. There’s pressure on women to do the undoable, which is not age. But it’s about looking great for however old you are, regardless of what that number is.’

The 1990s Supermodel also pointed out: ‘I don’t need everyone on Instagram pointing out that I don’t look the same way I did when I was 20. I know that.’

As she described her situation, ‘Sometimes when you’re in the public eye, it can be hard, and that’s where you kind of have to work on yourself.’

Famed cosmetic doctor Jean-Louis Sebagh – whom Natural Beauty calls her ‘anti-aging skin guru’ – ‘always talks about how skin ages in three different ways,’ per Crawford, ‘and the first one I saw was a change in volume.’

Her self-assessment: ‘I have a very round face, and over the years, it’s like all of a sudden, I’ve got serious cheekbones that can make my face look severe if I’m not careful. My face doesn’t have a lot of lines yet because I really take care of my skin.’

In point of fact, to hear her tell it, ‘In some ways, I have more confidence about my skin at 50 than I did in my 20s.’

Looking back, ‘The 50-year-old Cindy would tell the 30-year-old Cindy not to be so hard on herself. And, probably and hopefully, the 75-year-old Cindy would for sure be saying that to me. So I should get the message soon!’

On Thursday the former face of Revlon posted another sultry image of herself as she lounged amongst an idyllic backdrop.

Resting on her stomach as she leaned up on both elbows and gazed off onto the sunset, the mother-of-two captioned the captivating image: ‘Apres swim.’
