The details from Daily Mail:

ITV News anchor Charlene White tweeted an unretouched image of a lingerie-clad Cindy Crawford, which went viral on Friday.

Marie Claire confirmed the shot originated from the December 2013 issue of their Mexico/Latin America magazine, and wrote ‘it is real, it is honest, and it is gorgeous.’

Fans applauded the Photoshop-free picture of the supermodel – who was 47 then, and turns 49 next week – precisely for its realness.

I’m glad she’s comfy in her own skin. Good for her.

I’m sorry but…she looks bad! It’s admirable that she wanted to make the effort to show people she has her flaws but the pictures just are not flattering at all

When keeping it real goes wrong.

I don’t think anything went wrong except that catty news anchor who tweeted the picture! Cindy is a goddess. This is just unflattering.

Awesome, good for her.

I think because the contrast is turned up so high it really accents the sun and age spots on her chest and makes the creases stand out. Shapewise her skin is a little “loose” but she looks pretty good.

For most part, she looks good. She’s kept herself in pretty good shape. The thing that strikes me the most is that she has some sun damage. This photo is a reminder that spending too much time tanning is not good for your skin.

I like the fact that she actually looks her age and doesn’t retouch it like other celebrities. The picture is lovely.

For some reason it doesn’t look like her, like it was photoshopped to look bad or something…

Maybe because we are so exposed to fake photos of celebs everywhere we have doubts on the rare occasion we actually are shown a real and genuine one. it’s sad really, isnt it?

lc

Yeah, true. :/

I actually agree with you …It looks like they increased contrast and reduced highlighting (I’m totally just guessing here , I don’t know enough about photoshop).
I doubt anyone can look too good with that kind of unflattering photo editing .
on the one hand , yes it’s crazy that this is close to what a mature supermodel actually looks like , but all those defects we’re seeing in the picture might not look as stark in person. Just saying.

You’re correct I work with photoshop on a regular basis, and this photo has been highly sharpened to create texture and amplify flaws.

NOT flattering!

Okay, but I’m sure they could get a more flattering pic? Maybe the person who posted this hates her lol. She looks very leathery and saggy, Helen mirren has a better body.

I like this. She’s showing it’s okay to look your age and after these pictures I don’t find her unappealing at all maybe even more gorgeous cos she seems more real.

She looks gorgeous. She looks very much her age, and very very beautiful. Her chest reminds me that I have to keep up with my sunscreen routine, though

If we weren’t all so used to photoshop and perfect angles and light we wouldn’t be surprised. I like the picture 🙂

her skin doesn’t look good, like too much sun burn or something

She looks like a completely different woman without photoshop. Looks a lot older than 49.

I thought for a second she was 60 or something. I mean, it’s good that women are not ashamed, but my mother who’s 5 years older than her looks 10 years younger. It’s a very unflattering photo.
