She was nicknamed ‘The Body’ in her heyday, due to the killer figure she displayed on the catwalk. 

But Elle MacPherson, now 54, has revealed she is glad she does not have the body of her 20s, as it is evidence of her two ‘incredible’ sons. 

Speaking on Wednesday’s This Morning, the supermodel admitted she has never been bothered by ageing, and is simply proud that she has lived through ‘amazing stages of fashion and fitness’.

The Australian beauty appeared on the ITV show to discuss the secrets behind her enviably youthful look – which she owes to natural ageing, and a lack of plastic surgery. 

Discussing her famously glowing skin, she explained: ‘I haven’t always looked after my skin. I spent far too much time in the sun. I was born in the 60s, when lying out in the sun with baby oil was fashionable.

‘But I haven’t done any plastic surgery, not that I have any judgement – it just hasn’t been my choice. I like a natural looking face.’

Despite carving a stellar modelling career in the 1980s, Elle added that she is glad her body had changed over the years, as its proof of the life she has lived – having become a mother to sons Flynn and Aurelius since.

She said: ‘I try and do some exercise every day, but thank goodness I don’t have the same body as in my 20s.

‘There have been many changes and I’m grateful to be able to evolve over time. I’m open to change and evolving. These are tangible assets to my life.’ 

While she is not fazed by ageing, Elle still tries to keep as healthy as possible – and lauded both the physical and mental benefits of going plant-based.

She explained: ‘When I turned 50 I realised things I did in my 20s weren’t working anymore. I follow a plant-based alkaline diet, focusing on a healthy, whole food.
