Update: According to new reports, the unretouched image of Cindy Crawford circulating a few weeks ago might in fact have been retouched.

TMZ, says it has received a letter from the lawyer of Cindy’s photographer. According to TMZ: “The lawyer says the original pic was stolen and then doctored to make her midsection look haggard.”

TMZ continues: ‘The lawyer included a statement from the famous photog, who says he took the pic for Marie Claire Mexico and someone stole it from him and Photoshopped it.’

Whether the photos where altered or not, Cindy Crawford who turns 50 next month looks sensational. And here is a picture to prove it:

Update: This from our sister site, Marie Claire US on the unretouched image of Cindy Crawford circulating on Twitter: ‘it is real, it is honest, and it is gorgeous.’

‘While the claim accompanying the photo above is that it will be printed in an upcoming issue of Marie Claire, its origins are actually from a December 2013 cover story from Marie Claire Latin America. It appears that this unretouched version is a leak. No matter where the photo came from, it’s an enlightenment—we’ve always known Crawford was beautiful, but seeing her like this only makes us love her more .’

We couldn’t agree more! This image is a testament to the beauty of the female form.
