From Cindy to Naomi: Older Models Who Still Totally Kill It

Meghan Blalock

Fashion is as guilty as every other mainstream industry of being rather youth-centric; after all, Kendall Jenner just celebrated her 20th birthday last week, and she's arguably the modeling world's current darling. It's pretty incredible to think about someone achieving such wild success at an age so ripe, but that's just the way the world seems to work these days.

However, there are some older models out there who are still killing it. From Cindy Crawford, who is still nabbing magazine covers at 49 years old, to Linda Evangelista, who at 50 years old just recently posed for Moschino's F/W 14 campaign—these ladies prove that to them, age is utterly meaningless. And we actually couldn't agree more.
