High five-0 to Elle Macpherson! The former supermodel celebrated a milestone over the weekend by blowing out 50 candles on her birthday cake.
The Australian-born TV host, actress and businesswoman looks like an ageless wonder. Her long blonde hair, radiant complexion and statuesque slender frame remind us of the days when she made a splash as a Sports Illustrated swimwear model in the '80s. She broke a record by appearing on the cover five times, which earned her the nickname "The Body."
The mother of two sons recently revealed her secret to staying in great shape. "Wellness, beauty, strength, good moods and stability require constant maintenance and tweaking," Macpherson told Harper's Bazaar Australia last summer. "You have to constantly listen to your body. You're new and fresh, and different every day. It's about being present in your life."
