Rule 5 Saturday - Cindy Crawford Prepares for the Big 5 Oh

'My waist is thicker and my boobs are a little less perky': As Cindy Crawford prepares to turn 50, she reveals how the fashion industry really treats older women
With her long legs, killer curves and trademark beauty spot, Cindy Crawford's enviable figure and stunning good looks have made her one of the most successful supermodels in history.
Beauty spot? I always thought it was a fly!
However, as revealed in an extract published in the Sunday Times from her new book Becoming, even she's not immune to the effects of ageing.
Athletes get weaker and slower,  scientist's brains develop ruts. Yep, sucks to get old, but you have to consider the alternative.
Though most women nearing 50 would likely give anything to look like Crawford currently does, the model does admit to feeling a 'sense of loss' for her younger self.

The extract in the Sunday Times sees her even confess to feeling shocked when confronted with unflattering paparazzi shots that don't match-up with the the now iconic images that have long created what she calls the 'illusion of Cindy Crawford'.
. . .
'I can still pull off a miniskirt and 5in heels on set - but probably not in real life.'
She's not been camera shy in the past, so there's lots of NSFW pictures.

And now, on with the illusion of Cindy Crawford!
