In an era where even non-celebrities are retouching their photos before posting them on social platforms such as Facebook and Instagram, supermodel and 49-year-old Cindy Crawford allowed her raw image to be in a magazine feature with all the flaws and imperfections. This is something uncommon in the glossy and glamorous beauty and fashion world where models are made to look like they are perfect and not the same as normal everyday people.

In a December 2013 issue of Marie Claire, supermodel and mother of two, Cindy Crawford allowed her unretouched photo to be used as part of the editorial. In the photo, Cindy who was 47 at the time, was dressed in a matching lingerie set and completed the sexy look with a fur coat and a hat.
