A photo from Cindy Crawford’s 2013 Marie Claire shoot went viral over the weekend, showing loose skin and stretchmarks on her stomach.
We are certainly most women will be thrilled with this photo that shows her imperfections, but it appears even her husband doesn’t want to picture his wife that way.
Cindy Crawford’s husband Rande Gerber shared a bikini-clad Valentine’s snap of the 48-year-old former model catching some rays on Saturday, a day after the unflattering Marie Claire photo was released.
Rande wrote, “She got flowers and I got her. Happy Valentines Day @cindycrawford!”
Gerber did not specify when the photo was taken, but it appears he wants everyone to know his wife is still hot.
Cindy, who turns 49 next week, wished her 1.3 million Twitter followers a happy holiday and urged them to treat themselves to dark chocolate.
Marie Claire confirmed the unretouched photo was taken for the December 2013 issue of their Mexico/Latin America magazine, stating, “it is real, it is honest, and it is gorgeous.”
Fans applauded the Photoshop-free picture of the former Cover Girl.
We are certain others will feel they can see that type of body at their local pool, preferring to be fooled with airbrushed photos.
Crawford spoke to Marie Claire last week, discussing being “comfortable in your own skin”.
The model said, “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.”
Crawford adds that she exercises four times a week, but has days she doesn’t feel she looks good.
She admitted, “I have those days. I don’t want to act like I don’t, especially now. As a young model, you have 4AM call times; now when they give me early call times I’m like, ‘I’ll get up whenever you want…but my face doesn’t really like to get up before 7 or 8. I’ll be there, I’m just not sure you’re going to want to shoot me.'”
Rande and Cindy are proud parents to son Presley, 15, and daughter Kaia, 13.
