On losing the weight too fast after having her first baby – and regretting it now:
‘If I could give advice to any woman having a baby it’s to take your time. I was not a good example because I did all that (shedding the weight quickly) for my first child (Flynn) and within three weeks I was back to normal. It was not a healthy way of doing it. I wouldn’t do that again and I certainly didn’t do it for my second baby (Aurelius Cy). I was not a good example.’
… says 53 year-old Elle.
On her healthy living experience:
At 52, I now know that a healthy mind and body is a balance of nutrition, exercise, intuition, experience and love, I really believe that,’ she tells the magazine. I’m less concerned about the number on the scales or what dress size I wear now compared to when I was younger. Today I believe beauty comes from the inside and I’ve definitely become more mindful in that sense – meditation has become a huge part of my day-to-day life.
On her supermodel workout regimen:
[It’s] ideal if I’m in a different country as I can explore the area while being active. If I’m at home I love to walk the dog, run on the beach, go swimming, hike with the kids or cycle around the neighbourhood.
On the best healthy living tip she’s heard:
The best piece of advice I’ve been given is: “Your inner strength will come from balance, trust, intuition, experience and love.”
On whether she is strict when it comes to her diet and supermodel workout regimen:
It’s really important for me to not be super strict – my life isn’t governed by rules, it is about balance. I don’t believe in extreme diets. I eat organic food where possible and eat a mostly plant-based diet – which means lots of leafy greens, salad, fruit and vegetables and clean hormone-free protein. I think it’s important to have something warm in the body as the first meal so for breakfast I’ll have some oatmeal or muesli with an apple compote or some berries warmed through.

On being blessed with ‘young’ hair:
I’m 52 and don’t have any gray hairs. Not one. I’m so lucky. I never considered it an asset until recently. I just thought, “actually, that’s quite cool!
Of course I think about lines. There have been times in my life when I have tried really hard to get rid of them [like with fillers], and it doesn’t work. So I tend to leave all that alone as much as possible. Ultimately I think nutrition, sleep, love, laughter and water is the most magical recipe for a beautiful face. The beauty of a woman as she matures is not how she tries to look younger but how she adapts to her newfound maturity.
… says Elle.
