Models are not like the rest of us. How many people can say that they got their jobs based on solely their looks? Do you have a feature that has made you world famous and landed you million-dollar advertising campaigns? Didn’t think so. Models definitely hit the genetic jackpot and they have the good bone structure, chiseled abs, glossy manes and countless other perfect features to prove it.
If you thought that is wasn’t fair that models have toned legs that seem to go on for days and skin that looks flawless without a stitch of makeup on, things are actually even more unfair. A lot of models didn’t just luck out in the features department. They also seem to be blessed with genes that make them get hotter with age. This is probably where the saying about life being unfair originates from.
It is easy to want to write models’ ever youthful looks off as plastic surgery, having a professional hair and makeup on standby, the fact they discovered the eternal foundation of youth, or downright sorcery. However, whether you want to admit it or not, models just do not age like the rest of us. The regular rules of aging do not seem to apply to them. Instead, they actually seem to get more attractive with age. You might have thought that it was impossible for models to get any more good-looking than they already are, but it turns out they can. Somehow these 10 supermodels just keeping getting hotter with age.
10. Cindy Crawford
Cindy Crawford was one of the most iconic models of the 90s. You could not go anywhere without seeing her gorgeous face staring back at you on billboards, ad campaigns, televisions and even cosmetics displays. Cindy is now forty-nine years old, but she definitely does not look it. She has the same thick brown hair and intense gaze now as she did when she was first starting out as a model back when she was a teenager. Not only does Cindy still wear skimpy bikinis at the beach, but she recently posed in nothing but lingerie for a magazine shoot.
9. Heidi Klum
Forget that stuff about Donald Trump saying that Heidi Klum is not a 10 anymore. Heidi was hot when she was younger and she still is now. The German model and Project Runway host has a face and body that do not seem to be affected by gravity or the other signs of aging. Plus, the woman still has abs of steel despite having four kids. Remember how she walked the runway in the Victoria’s Secret fashion show a mere six weeks after giving birth? Forget being a 10, Heidi is more like an 11+ on the hotness scale.
8. Naomi Campbell
When you compare older photos of Naomi Campbell when she was just starting out modeling to ones taken now, there really is not that much of a difference. Naomi started modeling in the late 1980’s when she was still a teenager. As she went from modeling newbie to world famous supermodel in the 1990’s, she only seemed to become more beautiful and confident. When you look at photos of her, she is captivating. At forty-five years old, Naomi is competing with girls literally half her age for jobs yet the campaigns just keep stacking up. It is understandable considering Naomi could easily pass for someone half her age.
7. Elle Macpherson
You may know Australian model Elle Macpherson by her nickname, as opposed to her real name. Elle is commonly referred to as “The Body.” Elle made a name for herself posing for Sports Illustrated in the 1980’s. Over thirty years later, she still lives up to her famous nickname. At fifty-one years old, Elle still looks absolutely flawless in a bathing suit. With her rock hard abs, it is hard to believe that she was ever pregnant with two children. People who have never had kids do not even have stomachs like that. Plus, she has long, flowing, blonde waves that women of any age would kill to have.
6. Claudia Schiffer
Claudia Schiffer is a German model who made a name for herself as a Guess girl and for being one of the top supermodels of the 1990’s. At forty-five years old, Claudia shows that the passage of time and having three kids has not really affected her. She recently made headlines for appearing in the latest Balmain advertising campaign alongside fellow ageless supermodels Cindy Crawford and Naomi Campbell. If that isn’t enough proof that she is unbelievably hot, Claudia also became a Guess girl again in 2012 to mark the brand’s 30th anniversary. That was twenty-three years after her first Guess gig.
5. Christie Brinkley
Someone needs to do a study about Christie Brinkley to figure out what her secret to staying so fresh-faced is. You might say that she isn’t human because she does not age like the rest of us mere mortals. Christie can easily pass for her seventeen-year-old daughter Sailor Lee Brinkley-Cook’s older sister. At sixty-one years old, Christie looks as good now as she did when she was posing for Sports Illustrated in the late 1970’s and 1980’s. She could be on the cover of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition in 2016 and the issue would sell just as many copies, if not more.
4. Kate Moss
For proof that Kate Moss just keeps getting more attractive with age, just take a look at the number of modeling jobs that she has booked in recent years. Kate is actively working today, despite first starting out in the 1990’s. When Kate started modeling as a teenager, her boyish frame was met with some criticism for her “waif” look. It was a contrast compared to all of the voluptuous models of the 1990’s. However, Kate has proven the critics wrong with her success. At forty-one years old, Kate is considered by many to be one of the most alluring women in the world and her modeling career shows no signs of slowing down.
3. Tyra Banks
Does Tyra Banks ever age? It does not appear she ever does. Tyra may have played around with multiple looks since she began modeling, but it is just the styling details that have changed. At forty-two years old, Tyra’s hair is one of the few features that we have seen change over the years. Tyra still has the same trademark “smize” (smile with her eyes) that she had when she was a Victoria’s Secret and Sports Illustrated model. It is no wonder that all of the wannabe models on America’s Next Top Model look up to her so much and want to be just like her. She is pretty much flawless.
2. Paulina Porizkova
If there was one word to describe Paulina Porizkova besides “beautiful,” it would be “ageless.” The 51-year-old Czech-born model started her career way back in the 1980’s. She holds the honor of being the first model from Central Europe to be featured on the cover of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. A lot of time has passed since the 1980’s, but you would not know it from looking at Paulina. Her hair may be tamed but she can still rock a bikini now the way she did over three decades ago. Check out those chiseled abs. Jealous, us?
1. Helena Christensen
Danish model Helena Christensen is a former beauty queen and one-time Victoria’s Secret model so it should not be too surprising to find out that she seems to have only gotten more attractive with age. She has graced the covers of countless magazines and she has walked in many runway shows. Helena is now forty-seven years old, but time has treated her well. She still gets modeling jobs and some of them involve posing in skimpy lingerie or bikinis. When she goes to the beach during her free time, she looks like a person half her age with her dark hair and toned body.
