When someone says Granny....a 47-48 yo woman is not who springs to mind.

You know good and well I'm right.

I worry about the values you'll teach your daughters if you ever have any, truth be told.

You are the one who started this thread insulting a woman who has the audacity not to dress like a dowdy old shrew...and yet you are also the one who became incensed when a similar insult was levied at you.

Perhaps you might treat others the way you wish to be treated?

I know you are not, and never will be a supermodel, so to insult Cindy Crawford's looks at age 48 is both classless and tasteless.

You have a crystal ball do you?

And as far as stating my opinion about a photo, "The Emperor's
New Clothes" comes to mind.

There a many woman I am sure that look a helluva lot better in their underwear than Cindy Crawford at age 48. I bet if those of you did not know who she was saw that
pic you would think it was disgusting.
What a complete load of horse-hockey!! I am older than she is, and my standard beach-wear is a bikini, my dear. And I have no intention of changing that because of age.

I think that's the type of photo where they turn up the contrast which exaggerates everything. I've seen it used in portraits when they wanted to emphasize wrinkles for the sake of art.

Cindy's husband posted a photo in response to that photo. He posted her lying in the sun wearing a bikini and she looked nothing like that - especially her skin.

We may never know when that second pic (posted by husband) was taken, but my guess is 20 years ago.

Lol, the anxiety you have over a total strangers body is baffling & more than a little creepy.

I find your anxiety over my opinions a "little creepy". Granted the popular opinion is different than my own, but I have just as much right to state my opinion as you do to oppose it. The reason for many women's love of this picture is that it makes them feel good about their own dumpy bodies and that's a fact.
