An un-photoshopped photo of Cindy Crawford was 'leaked' on the internet a few days ago. But there's more to the story than meets the eye. Here is the pic:
The photo was quickly identified as a picture from a Marie Claire Mexico shoot that Cindy did in 2013.
And here’s the statement that Marie Claire US released:
While the claim accompanying the photo above is that it will be printed in an upcoming issue of Marie Claire, its origins are actually from a December 2013 cover story from Marie Claire Mexico and Latin America. It appears that this unretouched version is a leak.
No matter where the photo came from, it’s an enlightenment—we’ve always known Crawford was beautiful, but seeing her like this only makes us love her more. And as she told us at the premiere of her new documentary last week: “I really think—at any age—it’s learning to be comfortable in your own skin. …If women would treat themselves with the same kind of love they give to their friends, that would be such a great gift we could give ourselves. …What makes you the most attractive is self-confidence. That’s what people see.”
Right on, Cindy C.
It's fab to see that a model (and a 'super' one at that) can demonstrate what all mothers know: stomachs never go back to normal (and you have to work very hard in order for that be a possibility anyway).
We love you even more now, Cindy. You're showing the world what many of us keep covered up: a tummy which has stretched and been pulled in all directions, and consequently shows the signs of 'usual wear and tear'. What's not to love?
And here, for no reason other than to pay homage to Cindy C (my original girl crush) in her 1980s and 1990s looks are photos from that era - gosh I loved this era. Enjoy:
