Supermodel Christy Turlington had only praise for women who she said have chosen to “age naturally” and she made it clear she won’t be using plastic surgery — nor does she think other women should attempt to slow down mother nature.

The 54-year-old model talked about the women she sees as beauty icons and said they are the ones who have stayed away from altering their faces to hide the fact that they have lived life, calling it beautiful, Marie Claire reported.

“Women who have stayed away from augmentation of themselves — those are the women I really admire,” Turlington said. “I love seeing a real face. A face of someone who’s lived life.”

“I would say my beauty icons are people like Jane Birkin,” she added, noting the model who passed away last month at 76.

“They have the kind of faces I like to see, and we don’t get to see as many of those in the world anymore,” the supermodel continued. “Jane aged in her way. She was as beautiful at the end of her life as she was early on.”

Turlington made it clear she doesn’t plan to change her looks in an attempt to appear younger either.

“I will be one of those faces,” the model said. “I am one of those faces.”

The mother of two previously vowed she wouldn’t be trying any of those crazy things people do like “collagen” and “fat cells” to change her looks, Town and Country noted.

“First of all, I have no time,” Turlington said. “Second of all, I don’t think it looks good. Maybe I would think differently if I thought it looked good, and it didn’t hurt, and it didn’t send bad messages to young people. But I’ve never seen someone who I’ve been like, ‘Oh, that’s a good idea.’ It looks freaky to me.”

Another 90s supermodel, Cindy Crawford, recently slammed our “youth-obsessed culture” and how terms like “ageless” place “too much pressure” on her to look like she’s 30 years younger, Haute Living reported.

“I know all the ways that I’ve aged,” the 57-year-old model said. “My face has gotten much thinner; my mouth isn’t as full. Being told I’m ageless isn’t right, especially because getting older is hard enough, never mind that we live in a youth-obsessed culture.”

“I’m not 25, so why should I be trying to look 25?” she added. “Why do I want someone to mistake me for a 25-year-old? I’ve had children. I have all this life experience.”
