Not slowing down! Cindy Crawford stills looks and feels beautiful, and she wants everyone to know that has no problem continuing to model nude.

On Wednesday, June 12, the 53-year-old explained that she and fellow model Christy Turlington believe it is important for them to keep doing the type of photoshoots they want to do because, “We want to show women who are 53, and I think Christy just turned 50, that there’s still beauty in that,” the Fair Game actress said at a Q&A hosted by WWD.

Cindy recently posed nude for photographer Russell James’ book, and the businesswoman recalled some of the comments she received after she shared the snaps on social media. “I remember some snarky person on Instagram — there seem to be a lot of those — posted something like, ‘Ah, why are you still doing those at your age?’” She continued, “And I was like, is there an age where being nude isn’t beautiful? It’s just a different kind of beauty.”

“That is part of the reason I still do shoots,” she added, admitting that it’s “a little harder” now to get camera ready. “I hope this is politically correct, but sometimes I say I need Viagra for shoots. It’s harder to get it up,” she said.

The brunette beauty is clearly very comfortable in her skin — In May, Cindy took to Instagram to share a makeup-free selfie of herself, and she of course received plenty of position reactions. “Extremely beautifully blessed,” one fan said.

Cindy isn’t the only woman in her 50s who is completely fine with going nude for a shoot — Jennifer Aniston did the same recently for Harper’s Bazaar. “I’m not ashamed of that, no — no one should be!” the Friends alum, 50, said while on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The actress also added that she “loves” being naked.

We are all about strong, independent women continuing to do what they want!
