Elle Macpherson Recreates Iconic Playboy Cover

July 03, 2013 03:13 PM by Stephanie Gustafson

Elle Macpherson still looks amazing at 49 — and she knows it! The former Fashion Star host recently showed off her toned body in a topless shoot for Harper’s Bazaar Australia, recreating a look first made famous in a Playboy cover that debuted nearly twenty years ago. Suffice to say, the response thus far has been incredibly enthusiastic!

She was a beautiful woman at age 30 and the same can be said for Elle Macpherson’s striking appearance at 49. The model recently posed for the cover of Harper’s Bazaar Australia in a manner that should be very familiar to anyone who read Playboy in the mid 90s. As in the 1994 version of the shoot, Elle Macpherson’s Harper’s Bazaar update features a topless photo in which the model wears nothing but a sheer pair of stockings. Included is a collection of bracelets that not present in the original shoot, but otherwise, the outfit remains as minimal as one would expect for a Playboy cover.

Elle’s reimagined Playboy shoot is accompanied by a caption telling female readers that they can look “fabulous” at any age, as well as an additional caption that reads: “The Body at 50.” In case you forgot, “The Body” refers to Elle, who was given this distinctive title in the aftermath of multiple cover shoots for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Since then, Elle has capitalized on the name by using it as the label for her exclusive line of skincare products.

It’s clear that Elle Macpherson takes her nickname seriously, but the question remains — how does she maintain that fabulous body? Elle explains to Harper’s Bazaar Australia that her toned physique is the result of a honed fitness routine. “No one tells you this, but I’ve recognized it as I’ve grown older and wiser: wellness, beauty, strength, good moods and stability require constant maintenance and constant tweaking.”

That hard work has clearly paid off, for Elle Macpherson looks better than ever! Do you agree? Sound off in the comments section below!
