Cindy Crawford, 53, gets backlash for bikini photo: 'Getting a little old for this'

Cindy Crawford may be over 50, but the supermodel is making it known that her days posing in a bikini are far from over.

The 53-year-old took to Instagram on Wednesday to post a snap of herself enjoying a summer vacation by the lake. And even she couldn’t help but to point out that she did a phenomenal job of finding her light.

“A little bit of lake light,” Crawford captioned the photo, featuring herself in a bikini and a couple of hats.

Soon enough, the photo was deemed “goals” by the supermodel’s followers.

“Unrealistic I know but a girl can dream,” one person commented. While another said, “Top model for life.”

Other positive comments included “Gorgeous”, “You look like you’re in your 20’s!” and “Forever young And powerful!!”.

However, a couple of people chimed in to criticise the mother-of-two for flaunting her body.

“Look at me look at me - time to let it go your ship has sailed,” someone wrote. Another said, “Getting a little old for this...”

But after just recently posting a throwback photo from the height of her modelling days, it seems as though Crawford has hardly aged a day – and her fans were quick to put the trolls in their place.

“You look amazing!” someone said of the most recent snap. “So inspiring to us women who are getting older.”

“Still the most beautiful woman in the world, all are beneath her,” another wrote, without neglecting to mention Crawford’s supermodel daughter, Kaia Gerber. “Her daughter stands next to her.”

Crawford is one many of her contemporaries proving being over 50 is no boundary to looking fantastic.

She is joining by the likes of Celine DionLiz Hurley and Davina McCall in proving age is just a number.
