The image in question dates back to a December 2013 cover shoot. In the shot, Cindy’s untouched stomach, legs and chest are seen as she poses in a navy lingerie set, fur jacket and hat.
After it surfaced on Reddit.com, the photo came to attention when ITV News Anchor Charlene White applauded the mother-of-two for highlighting what high profile women really look like without digital alteration.
Marie Claire magazine released a statement saying, "No matter where the photo came from, it's an enlightenment -- we've always known Crawford was beautiful, but seeing her like this only makes us love her more."
One of the most prominent catwalk queens of her generation, Cindy is still starring in campaigns and shoots, particularly alongside her daughter Kaia (13).
The former wife of actor Richard Gere recently states that she is determined that Kaia will grow up knowing what a normal woman's body looks like.
"If my daughter sees me accepting my body the way it is and not denigrating myself because I’m not stick thin, or only eating lettuce with no dressing... If she sees I enjoy food, but I also exercise," she told ES magazine.
The Illinois native is known for her healthy and active lifestyle, and has recently forayed into the skin care and beauty markets, as well as her campaigning work for charities.
