Cindy Crawford is the epitome of a supermodel. But, unfortunately, people tend to hold models to unrealistic beauty standards, especially as they get older. Crawford personally rejects any age expectations people might have for her and has some words of wisdom to share with everyone who’s afraid of aging.
Crawford defined the ’90s supermodel era.
When we think about ’90s supermodels, one of the first names that come to mind is undoubtedly Cindy Crawford. Her rise to fame started in 1990 when she appeared on the cover of British Vogue alongside names like Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, and Christy Turlington. Since then, Crawford frequently walked and posed for the biggest fashion houses and magazines of the decade.
In 2000, exactly 10 years since her career had skyrocketed, Crawford quit full-time modeling at the age of 34. Since then, the former supermodel has written a book, Becoming, worked as a spokesperson for several brands, and even launched her furniture line. Still, even though she hung up her modeling hat over 2 decades ago, Crawford is still battling with unrealistic expectations people have of others.
Getting older was tough to accept for her at first.
By the time Crawford started approaching her fifties, she’d started noticing her age in little things: “Your skin, your hair, your body. I take care of myself but I know that I’m a 51-year-old woman.”
And yet, Cindy realized that her concerns were more based on other people’s expectations of her. “I want to do my job well, and I want to deliver but I also know that what I have to offer now is different from what I had to offer at 25.”
The former supermodel also had a hard time with people online reacting to her changing appearance, saying, “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.” But after the struggle came acceptance, which we can all learn from.
Crawford has embraced her age and refuses to look back.
After some time, Crawford accepted that you can’t turn back time and it’s much more important to focus on the now. As she shared, “No matter what I do, I’m not going to look 20, or 30. I just want to look great for 50. 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.”
At this time, she also rejects the idea of being ageless and wants everyone to stop pushing that narrative. Crawford said, “Being told I’m ageless isn’t right, especially because getting older is hard enough, never mind that we live in a youth-obsessed culture.”
Ultimately, Crawford’s age became her sense of pride as it reflects all her achievements. “I’m not 25, so why should I be trying to look 25? Why do I want someone to mistake me for a 25-year-old? I’ve had children. I have all this life experience.”

North Texas twins born in different years
A Denton couple is celebrating their new twin girls who were born in different years!
Kali Jo Scott had to be checked in early to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Denton for monitoring.
Then came Effie Rose at 12:01 a.m. on Jan. 1, making her the first baby born at the hospital in 2023!
The babies are happy and healthy, weighing in at 5.5 pounds.
“We had kind of joked, like, ‘wouldn’t it be funny if…’ with the holiday and New Year’s Eve over the weekend,” said Scott. “It turned out that was more of a possibility than we realized.”
Both parents say they like the fact that each child gets their own day.
“I love it. I think it is hilarious and just super fun,” Scott said.
“It kind of happened so quick we haven’t processed all of it yet,” said father Cliff Scott.
They say it will help keep the fraternal twins with their own identity.
“You always still want to make sure they have their own individual personality and know that they are special and unique. So this gets to add to that special and uniqueness that some twins don’t maybe get,” she said. “One will always get the glitter and confetti of New Year’s Eve and one gets to kick it off with a brand-new year on New Year’s Day.”
The few-minute difference could have big implications for a few things.
Many youth sports are based around the child’s birth year, which could make for complicated schedules.
The new family says some of the financially-minded friends have reached out about the tax implications.
“Our friends were making fun of us for the tax deduction issue since we only get one tax deduction for last year, but I think that’s just fine,” Scott said.

We can still call these women “GIRLS”
Many women out there are scared of aging, as they feel that losing their youth is the same as losing their beauty. Although with time comes wisdom and maturity, so does the appearance of wrinkles. However, perhaps we can prevent this, just like these actresses managed to. There are a number of actresses who prove that age is just a number and beauty can, in fact, be timeless. From Demi Moore and Bo Derek to Goldie Hawn and Raquel Welch, you would not believe the ages of some of these women. They have all proven that if you take care of your body, it will take care of you. What are their secrets?
Despite coming from the block, Jenny was born beautiful and nothing has changed that ever since she became a pop sensation. If anything, turning 49 has just improved her looks.
Despite all her career demands, Jennifer Lopez has managed to maintain that signature J-Glow thanks to her hardcore exercise regimen and personal trainer. She denies ever having used plastic surgery and says her glow is probably thanks to her expensive skincare. Lopez also treats herself to an anti-aging diet, whatever that is!
It is pretty hard to believe that this Hollywood ‘good girl’ is now 72. The ageless actress from Private Benjamin had an outstanding career and set precedent for her three children, who are all successful actors themselves.
Her beauty also lies within as she set up a nonprofit organization for youth education. Her secret? Apparently, she has none! She stays active, eats healthy, and drinks her green juice every day. She also uses sheet masks which she once revealed on Instagram.
Is it just us or has Demi Moore even improved with age?! “I think that laughter and smiling are one of the best antidotes to aging that you could possibly have,” she told Parade in 2010.
Despite this, she is no stranger to trying a beauty innovation every now and then. Moore has opened up about getting non-surgical tightening treatment and leech therapy. If bloodsucking leeches hanging off your body for 40 minutes will make us look like Moore, then there is no harm in trying!
After managing to juggle a career as an actress, model, fitness guru, and activist, there is no doubt that Fonda knows how to age too.
Although she is not shy to admit she has had to combat some sagging skin through nip-tuck and has had work on her jawline and under-eye area, Fonda has alternative ways to looking good. Despite her many divorces, she still tries to keep active through exercise and carefully watches what she eats.
Everyone knows Kate Winslet for her iconic role as Rose alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in Titanic. She is now pushing forty-odd and we will be amazed if she has aged this well without any surgical help.
However, during an interview, she explained that her diet is the reason she looks this good. To keep her skin glowing, Kate never consumes any salt or alcohol. While it seems like a hard thing to do, maybe seeing her flattering results are a tempting enough reason to start.
Jennifer Anniston has not aged a day since first appearing as Rachel Green in the hit sitcom Friends at 24 years old. In fact, she looks younger and younger the older she gets.
The now-49-year-old actress has had a rollercoaster of events in her life from breakups to divorces to scandals, however, none of these has aged her. Her skin glows given her healthy diet, exercise, and lots of water. Who needs a man when you look this good?
After going beyond the barriers of 60, this beach babe still looks as flawless as she did in the ’70s. She even recently participated in a 3,000-meter swimming marathon, proving age is nothing but a number.
The iconic actress from the movie 10 says aside from her open-water swimming, her secrets include horseback riding and tending to her 110-acre ranch herself. Derek also has a flexitarian diet, which is mostly vegetarian but occasionally includes meat. This diet is said to promote health and prevent diseases.
