It’s not very often you get to see one of the world’s biggest supermodels or even a reality starlet nowadays without Photoshop, but an unretouched photo of Cindy Crawford in lingerie has gone viral.
The photo is from a December 2013 cover shoot for Marie Claire Mexico and shows the now 48-year-old model looking amazing, but much less airbrushed than your average cover model.
In a blog post, Marie Claire confirmed the photo is authentic, calling it “a body that defies expectations—it is real, it is honest, and it is gorgeous.”
