Cindy Crawford, 53, gets backlash for bikini photo: 'Getting a little old for this'

Cindy Crawford may be over 50, but the supermodel is making it known that her days posing in a bikini are far from over.

The 53-year-old took to Instagram on Wednesday to post a snap of herself enjoying a summer vacation by the lake. And even she couldn’t help but to point out that she did a phenomenal job of finding her light.

“A little bit of lake light,” Crawford captioned the photo, featuring herself in a bikini and a couple of hats.

Soon enough, the photo was deemed “goals” by the supermodel’s followers.

“Unrealistic I know but a girl can dream,” one person commented. While another said, “Top model for life.”

However, others chimed in to criticize the mother-of-two for flaunting her body.

“Look at me look at me - time to let it go your ship has sailed,” someone wrote. Another said, “Getting a little old for this...”

But after just recently posting a throwback photo from the height of her modeling days, it seems as though Crawford has hardly aged a day.

“You look amazing!” someone said of the most recent snap. “So inspiring to us women who are getting older.”

“Still the most beautiful woman in the world, all are beneath her,” another wrote, without neglecting to mention Crawford’s supermodel daughter, Kaia Gerber. “Her daughter stands next to her.”

Twirling myself into the weekend like 🤣😎 (swipe left 👈🏻) Happy Saturday Dolls! I’m so excited the sun is out in So Cal and to get some things finished up around the house for Baby! I am in the home stretch now! I’m rocking my baby bump at 9 months preggo! (almost at 38 weeks! ) 🙌🏻 My body has definitely changed, and I have gained 30 pounds during this pregnancy, but I am owning my curves (and bigger breasts) and having fun just embracing it, cause who knows if I will ever have the opportunity to do this again 🤷🏼‍♀️————————————————————————-I am also excited to be rocking one of the bikinis from my new #GretchenChristine Collab with @amandalouisebeach and guess what......it still fits me comfortably at 9 months preggo!(same size I had before) It’s because the fabric is so stretchy and soft! 🙌🏻 I customized mine to have the light topaz stones on it! Remember what is so cool about this collection is that you can customize the color of your bikini and stone color you want! Click the link in my bio then “swimwear collection” to shop all the different looks! 👙 ————————————————————————My gorgeous flowy coverup is from my friends over @ladyjetset and was so perfect for the pool, oh and it can also be used as a dress! ————————————————————————-Cute heart shape sunnies are from @amazonfashion and were like $9 🙌🏻❤️ #spraytan by @naturalbronzing ————————————————————————-Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Love you all! 😘

What does this wildish intuition do for women? Like the wolf, intuition has claws that pry things open and pin things down, it has eyes that can burn through the shields of persona, it has ears that hear beyond the range of mundane human hearing. With these formidable psychic tools a woman takes on a shrewd and even precognitive animal consciousness, one that deepens her femininity and sharpens her ability to move confidently in the outer world.

Tuesday...Twos Day! ( get it?) with my Two Daughters, From Two years ago in Two piece bathing suits for @si_swimsuit. ☀️⭐️☀️⭐️☀️ • • • Some of the comments compel me to repost my little poem about comparing my daughters!! Here’s what I think, one more time ... “Ones a ‘Betty’ and ones a ‘Veronica’ One plays Piano, and one the harmonica, One is salt, the other pepper, One travels light, and ones a schlepper, One dances in moonlight and one in the Sun But don’t try to pick your favourite one Comparisons drive them both totally mad, They worry the other one will be sad With all of their hearts they love each other and I’m so proud to be their mother!” #family #love #sisters #werenotcompeting
