Life Begins at 40 - Supermodel Icons

Turning 40 this year has presented certain challenges, mostly concerning the apprehension surrounding coming to terms with the process of ageing. I'm not one to skirt around the truth about age and with good reason. I love being 40 and I also appreciate the journey that has led me to my current state of true self-acceptance and a confidence that comes from having lived a little. Sure, I have the inevitable smile lines and no longer have the physique that I had in my twenties but I eat well, exercise regularly, and engage in healthy lifestyle choices. I was asked yesterday what the secret to looking young is and my answer was quite simply "to be passionate about life and to surround yourself with people who inspire you and feed your soul". This month American Harper's Bazaar enlists Carine Roitfeld to assemble a stellar cast of supermodels who are patent proof that beauty is indeed ageless. Photographer Sebastian Faena captures the unforgettable beauty of iconic models Lauren Hutton, Iman, Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford, Stephanie Seymour, Claudia Schiffer, Eva Herzigova, Maria Carla Boscono, Isabeli Fontana, and Carolyn Murphy. The stellar cast is rounded out by newer recruits Joan Smalls and Lara Stone. Hutton, Iman, Evangelista, Seymour et al. command the proceedings with the spectacular dna, chutzpah, and modelling prowess that is the very definition of what it means to be Super.
