Thanks to her incredible figure, Elle Macpherson long ago became known by the nickname “The Body.”.
Kathy Ireland (seated, left) poses along with Elle MacPherson and Rachel Hunter on the cover of Sports Illustrated in 1994, age 30.
Now 47, the legendary supermodel shows she’s still sexy after all these years, frolicking on the beach in Malibu wearing nothing more than her signature triangle bikini for a PEOPLE photo shoot (her first swimsuit session in six years).
While the mother of two says her killer curves are the product of a clean diet, daily exercise and good genes and not the surgeon’s knife she admits that even she is not immune to the body blahs.
“we were comfortable at the shoot. But we had to get our self conscious ‘maybe we don’t look our best’ head out of the way and go with, ‘Let’s celebrate where we’re at.’ ” Continues Macpherson: “we know it’s not as easy as when we were 20 there are more factors to consider.”.
Macpherson still models but spends much of her time overseeing a business empire that includes the successful Elle Macpherson Intimates lingerie line.
The mentors (Jessica Simpson, Nicole Richie, and John Varvados) get to save one of the bottom three, but it’s the buyers that eliminate the contestant.
Macpherson, who says Simpson “looks so beautiful” as a mother to be, remembers her own pregnancy weight gain of more than 50 lbs.
“our butt was huge, our breasts and stomach were huge. we didn’t do maternity wear instead we bought huge clothes in an attempt to be fashionable,” she says.
