Aussie supermodel Elle Macpherson has spent decades in the spotlight being praised for her incredible figure and legs for days, but the now 51-year-old beauty has revealed age is taking a toll on her confidence.
“It’s one thing being twenty and gorgeous with legs up to your armpits and beautiful tight skin… and it’s another to be 51,” she said during an interview with Sunrise.
“Finally you get to this stage and you say ‘I’ve been known to be one of the most beautiful women in the world,’ and felt really not confident and sure of yourself.”

Hailed as ‘The Body’ in her younger years, Elle’s noticed her priorities have changed. She’s now more concerned about the way she feels, both inside and out.
“As I’ve matured, I’ve realised that it doesn’t really matter what I look like. The most important thing is ‘how do I feel?’. When I started sleeping more and relaxing a bit more in my life and looking after my nutrition – good nutrition can change everything. I hadn’t really understood how deprived my body was.”
With a laser-sharp focus on health, she’s launched her very own supplement, The Super Elixir by WelleCo, which she claims has changed her life for the better.
Oh, and it’s not all leafy greens and superfoods for the leggy model – she openly admits that she gives into temptation just like the rest of us, saying, “I don’t think it’s naughty, so yes I do [eat treats]. I have a sweet tooth.”
We think the blonde bombshell is ageing beautifully, and if we look anything like her at 51, we’d be flaunting it!
What do you think of Elle’s new attitude about how she looks? Has the way you think about your appearance changed as you’ve aged?
