Turning thirty is something we all have to, unfortunately, deal with. Actually, aging is simply something we all have to deal with. I mean, we age every single day. Every time you start your day by snoozing your alarm clock six times, you age a day. However, aging always feels its biggest when you celebrate a birthday. And those big round birthdays – 30, 40, 50 – can be the hardest to swallow. I mean, another DECADE older? How could that possibly be? You still snooze your alarm clock six times before getting up!
Calm down, drama queen. Aging is really no biggie. In fact, some women look even better as the years go by. Look at Jennifer Aniston. Sure, Jennifer Aniston was everything as Friends’s Rachel Green, but she has aged gracefully every since leaving the sitcom. Oh, and it’s not just actresses who age gracefully. Supermodels age just as well. And yeah, supermodels known for their looks, but the fashion industry is also notorious for favoring youth. I mean, Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner are what, 12? Nothing against our Gigi and Kenny, but the supermodels over 30 give us hope that maybe, maybe we can age with such beauty, grace, and class as them.
How have these supermodels stayed so perfect? Well, they all live healthy lifestyles, eat well, and work out. That stuff is super boring, but next time you want to skip a workout just think of Elle Macpherson’s 53-year-old body because that is GOALS.
Below are the most gorgeous models all over 30. Let them be your spirit animal next time you have a panic attack about your upcoming birthday.
16 Adriana Lima: Can You Believe This Victoria's Secret Angel Is 36?
At 36 years old, Adriana Lima is still startling beautiful. Like, stop-and-stare-at-her beautiful. Seriously, it’s a little bit scary just how gorgeous she is. Though, her breathtaking beauty may well be because of her ultra light eyes paired against her dark hair. Well, whatever makes her so beautiful, it’s working for her.
While she may be in her 30s now, Adriana Lima became a Victoria’s Secret Angel when she was just 18 years old. At this point, Lima is now the longest-running Victoria’s Secret Angel ever. Way to be, Adriana. However, Adriana Lima is still only the second-highest paid supermodel in the world. We’ll talk about the highest paid supermodel next, though. This is all about Adriana Lima.
One thing is for sure, this Brazilian mother of two looks hotter than… well, most women ever.
15 Gisele Bundchen: She's 37 & The Highest-Paid Supermodel
Gisele Bündchen is 37 years old and pretty much everything about her is #goals. Because really, who wouldn't want Gisele Bündchen's charmed life? The gorgeous mother of two is consistently named the highest paid supermodel year after year. In fact, Bündchen seriously out-earns her husband, Tom Brady. You’d think that Tom Brady, Patriots quarterback who is considered the greatest of all time, would make more than his wife, but not when his wife is the Gisele Bündchen.
Gisele Bündchen came in prominence at the end of the ‘90s. She’s credited for ending the uber-thin trend, in which models were all slightly sickly looking. Gisele Bündchen is neither uber-thin nor slightly sickly looking. She’s strong, athletic, and healthy looking.
Also worth noting is the fact that, like Adriana Lima, Gisele Bündchen is from Brazil. So like, I don’t know what’s in the Brazilian water, but if I could have some that would be great. Thanks.
14 Bar Refaeli: Leo's Other Famous Ex-Girlfriend Is 32
At this point, Gisele Bündchen’s marriage to Tom Brady is what's in the media these days. However, it wasn’t so long ago that Gisele Bündchen was connect to another man. None other than model-lover himself: Leonardo DiCaprio.
That’s right, Leonardo DiCaprio loves himself a model. In fact, he’s dated quite a few on this list alone, including Bar Refaeli. Leonardo DiCaprio and Bar Refaeli were off an on between 2005 and 2011, which is a really, really long time to Leo.
The Sports Illustrated cover girl is now 32, married, the mother of one child, and expecting another. So hey, even supermodels who date Leonardo DiCaprio eventually settle down and watch Netflix just like us. Okay, I don’t actually know if Bar Refaeli watches Netflix, but I’m just assuming.
13 Heidi Klum: Probably The Hottest 44-Year-Old Ever
Guys, Heidi Klum is 44 years old! 44 YEARS OLD! This is a lot to take in because she’s basically flawless.
The German model appeared on the cover of Sport Illustrated and was a Victoria’s Secret Angel, y’know the two achievements that officially make you a supermodel. Though, she’s not just a pretty face. Heidi Klum transitioned into acting, appearing in The Devil Wears Prada, Sex and the City, How I Met Your Mother, and several shows and films. Klum also hosts Project Runway with Tim Gunn and has earned an Emmy Award for her role.
On top of all that, Heidi Klum still manages to find time to host the biggest Halloween party every single year. Seriously, Google Heidi Klum’s Halloween parties because every single celebrity ever goes. Heidi Klum obviously always has the best costume. When Heidi Klum does something, she does it right.
12 Tyra Banks: This Girlboss Is 43!
Yet another absolutely gorgeous model who is in her 40s is Tyra Banks. That’s right, the Tyra Banks is 43 years old and she’s still one of the hottest girlbosses around.
Tyra Bank broke the glass ceiling for African American models, becoming the first African American model on the covers of GQ and Sports Illustrated. Tyra Banks was also a Victoria’s Secret Angel, that is before making her leap into film and television. Banks appeared in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Life-Size, Coyote Ugly, Gossip Girl, and many others.
In 2003, Tyra Banks created America’s Next Top Model, which she produced and hosted for 22 seasons. In fact, she’s such a talented businesswoman, she’s become a Stanford University guest lecturer on personal branding. Basically, if you don’t feel like there’s enough time in the day, just think about everything Tyra Banks has accomplished. She has the same length days as you, girl.
11 Kate Moss: This Iconic Beauty Is Also 43 Years Old
At 43 years old, Kate Moss is still one of the most recognizable faces of the fashion industry.
Kate Moss rose to fame during the ‘90s, during which she helped jumpstart the rail-thin and sickly looking era of models. For that reason, her ‘90s Calvin Klein collaborations are pretty much iconic.
Unlike many of the other models on this list, Kate Moss isn’t well known for taking great care of her body. She lives fast and hard, ladies. Somehow, her party girl lifestyle has yet to catch up with her though, as she looks just as beautiful today as she did in the ‘90s.
Though, her party girl lifestyle did cost her a pretty penny. In 2005, many fashion campaigns dropped Kate Moss because of her image. However, she cleaned herself up and is now one of the top-earning models year after year.
10 Cindy Crawford: She's 51 And We Want Her Genes
Serious question, is there a way to get Cindy Crawford’s genes injected into me?
At 51 years old, the supermodel looks stunning. During the ‘80s and ‘90s, Cindy Crawford and her glorious mole were on the cover of magazine likes Vogue, W, and Elle. Crawford also walked in fashion shows for brands like Chanel, Versace, Valentino, and several others. Oh, and she didn't disappear. Cindy Crawford recently appeared in Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” music video, so clearly she’s still got it.
If you need further proof that Cindy Crawford's genes are the best ever, just look at her daughter Kaia Gerber. Kaia Gerber is pretty much a mini-Cindy Crawford, both in looks and her in her modeling career. Kaia Gerber has already appeared in Vogue and walked in shows for Prada, Chanel, and Fendi.
Long story short, we’d all like to be Cindy Crawford’s daughter or, at the very least, just get some of those amazing Crawford genes.
9 Naomi Campbell: The OG Supermodel Is 47
Naomi Campbell is 47 years old and still the fiercest woman ever. Along with Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell is considered one of the "original supermodels." These ladies dominated the runways and magazines during the '80s and '90s. I mean, Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner are doing well for themselves, but it's nothing like the level of fame achieved by the likes of Naomi Campbell.
While she may be glamours, you may not want to be Naomi Campbell’s assistant. Campbell’s been charged with throwing phones and other random items at her assistants and cleaning ladies. There was also a little incident in 2008, during which Naomi Campbell assaulted two police officers and got herself banned from British Airways for life.
I definitely feel bad for any and all assistants who were hit in the face with Naomi Campbell’s phone, but that is also the stuff of legend. Naomi Campbell may be the last living diva and we love her for it.
8 Claudia Schiffer: Another 47 Year Old Diamond
Claudia Schiffer is 47 years old and she still looks like a peach.
The Germany supermodel (because yes, she was part of the original supermodel crew) also holds the Guinness World Record for having appeared on the most magazine covers. What exactly is that record? Well, Claudia Schiffer has appeared on over 1,000 magazine covers. So, a lot.
Another fun fact: Claudia Schiffer dated David Copperfield in the '90s. And yes, the magician. Though, she didn’t settle down with a magician. You never settle down with the magician, ladies. He can totally ghost you whenever he feels like. Instead, Schiffer married Matthew Vaughn, who directed Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class, and the Kingsman franchise.
Currently, Schiffer has a Claudia Schiffer by Rodenstock Prescription Glasses partnership, which is why there’s many photos of her in glasses. But glasses or no glasses, Claudia Schiffer is a stunner.
7 Angela Lindvall: This 38-Year-Old Is #GOALS
At 38 years old, Angela Lindvall is a show-stopping beauty. While Lindvall never necessarily attained the international fame of some of the supermodels on this list, she still landed campaigns with Chanel and Prada, walked in major fashion shows, and appeared in Vogue, Elle, and several other magazines.
Like many other models, Angela Lindvall made the transition into acting with 2005’s Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. But alas, her true love is Mother Earth. She’s an environmentalist, ya'll. In 2009, she took her love of nature and her love of fashion, creating a line of eco-friendly clothing.
On top of that Angela Lindvall is also the mother to two sons. So basically, Angela Lindvall is a gorgeous perfect human being who is saving the world.
6 Chrissy Teigen: Twitter's Funniest Lady Is 31
Everyone’s favorite funny lady, Chrissy Teigen, is 31 years old.
Chrissy Teigen made her debut inside 2010’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Teigen then, officially, made it big when she appeared on the Sports Illustrated cover in 2014. Unlike many of the other models on this list, Teigen hasn’t done much high-fashion runway work. Instead, she’s more of a print model, but she still brings in the cash. She’s done campaigns for Gillette, Olay, Nike, UGG, and several other major brands. Teigen transitioned her career into being a personality, being a guest correspondent on E!, MTV, and Extra. Teigen now co-hosts Spike’s Lip Sync Battle.
Oh, and Chrissy Teigen is a model that EATS. Teigen even released a cookbook called Cravings, which became a New York Times bestseller. She’s not just a pretty face, y’all… even though her face is very pretty.
5 Lily Aldridge: This 31-Year-Old Is Angelic AF
Lily Aldridge, the drop dead gorgeous Victoria’s Secret Angel, is 31 years old. Though, girlfriend always had some good genes working for her. Her mother is Laura Lyons, who was Playboy’s Playmate of the Month once upon a time. Could you image if you mom was a Playmate of the Month? It would be really cool and also really embarrassing.
Lily Aldridge appeared on several magazine covers, including the 50th anniversary cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, in which she appeared next to Chrissy Teigen and Nina Agdal. In 2010, Lily Aldridge became a Victoria’s Secret Angel and in the 2015 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, Aldridge wore the Fireworks Fantasy Bra, estimated to be worth $2 million.
Lily Aldridge is married to Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill, because musicians and models go together like peanut butter and jelly.
4 Miranda Kerr: She's 34 And The Most Perfect
Australian model Miranda Kerr is 34 years old, but she still totally has that innocent baby-face thing going for her. She's way cuter than more 5 year old girls.
In 2007, Miranda Kerr rose to prominence when she signed with Victoria’s Secret. She became the first ever Australian Victoria’s Secret Angel. Also, what is with these Victoria’s Secret Angels? Do they ever age? It’s kind of annoying.
Miranda Kerr had been married to hunky Orlando Bloom, but the two divorced in 2013. In 2015, Miranda Kerr married Snapchat founded Evan Spiegel. Blah blah blah, love life. But also, let’s talk about her SKIN. How does one get porcelain skin like that? Well, Miranda Kerr actually launched her own brand of organic skincare called KORA Organics.
Um, if she could somehow guarantee using her skincare line would make me look like that at 34, I’d buy everything she sells.
3 Elle Macpherson: This 53 Year Old Was Nicknamed "The Body"
GOOD LORD, Elle Macpherson.
At 53 years old, Macpherson is the oldest model on this list, but she also looks amazing. But, of course, Elle Macpherson has always looked spectacular. She clocks in at 6 feet tall and was nicknamed “The Body.” Um, it’s easy to see why she was nicknamed The Body. I mean, that is one body.
Elle Macpherson landed on the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue a record five times. While she’s appeared on magazine covers, in runway shows, and in big brand campaigns, some may know Elle Macpherson best as Janine Lecroix, Joey Tribbiani’s roommate/girlfriend on Friends.
Besides her impressive modeling career, acting career, and charity work, Elle Macpherson also co-founded WelleCo. This company’s flagship product is The Super Elixir, which is a wellness supplement endorsed by Macpherson and Kate Moss. Again, if someone can guarantee me I’ll look like Elle Macpherson at 53, I’ll buy whatever she tells me to.
2 Marisa Miller: This Sports Illustrated Babe Is 39
39-year-old Marisa Miller is an actual goddess. Like almost every other model on this list, Marisa Miller was also a Victoria’s Secret Angel. Doesn’t it feel like there were a zillion Victoria’s Secret Angels at this point? I’m starting to feel a little left out. But I also don’t look like Marisa Miller, so there’s that.
Marisa Miller also nailed a deal with Harley-Davidson, becoming the first spokesperson for the company. Beyond modeling, Marisa Miller’s done some acting, but she devotes much of her time to charity work. She’s an ambassador for the American Cancer Society. She also participated in PETA’s campaign against SeaWorld.
We have to say, as a 39-year-old mother of two, Marisa Miller is killin’ it.
1 Alessandra Ambrosio: This Victoria's Secret Angel Is 36
Our last entry is, of course, Alessandra Ambrosio, who also comes from Brazil. Also, how do we all travel back in time and become Brazilian? I’m just sayin’, the most gorgeous ladies come from Brazil and they also just so happen to not age.
Alessandra Ambrosio started her career with a bang, becoming the first spokesperson for Victoria’s Secret’s PINK line. She was since promoted to being a Victoria’s Secret Angel. She’s also transitioned into acting, with appearances in Casino Royale, Daddy’s Home, New Girl, Gossip Girl, and How I Met Your Mother.
Long story short, Alessandra Ambrosio keeps getting better with age. Actually, ALL of these models keep getting better with age. So, don’t fear aging, ladies. Embrace like these models, who are certainly not 20 anymore, but are every bit as beautiful.
