The Super Models

These women are supermodels! They were models for so many years and their incredible bodies and beauty gives them the opportunity to still be in the business. On the other hand, they are super because, in such a busy life of theirs they got the strength and time to have a family, kids, a business of their own and still be on top of the lists of advertising or modelling campaigns.

I admire them for getting old so beautifully and for being not only o fashion model, but a role-model for younger generations.

These are a few of their secrets for looking absolutely wonderful. 

The Danish stunner, 40, Helena Christensen may have made her mark in front of the camera, but now she's more likely to be seen behind it, having shot campaigns for Edun and Aveda.

Must-have product "Nude Miracle Mask really is miraculous. It makes your skin look tight and glowing."

Go-to facialist: She entrusts her luminous complexion to Christine Chin, owner of New York City's Christine Chin Spa. "After I get the microdermabrasion and a green-tea facial, my skin feels unbelievably soft and dewy."

Having graced more than a thousand magazine covers, Crawford, 43, knows a few beauty tricks.

Antiaging tip: "Women forget to take care of their décolletage, and it shows their age," says Crawford. She protects hers, as well as her complexion, with Meaningful Beauty, the skin-care line she created with Jean-Louis Sebagh, a Paris-based cosmetic doctor.

Must-have hair product: "Your hair texture changes as you age; mine used to be a lot more smooth. I use Moroccanoil Treatment to keep it hydrated."

 Schiffer became a household name 20 years ago as the face of Guess, and now, at 39, the current L'Oréal Paris spokesmodel and face of D&G fragrance shows no signs of slowing down.

Antiaging tip: "What I eat affects my skin," she says. "Anything that's heavy, like dairy or sweets, breaks out my complexion, and it doesn't look as fresh. When I stopped eating dairy, my skin looked nicer."

Skin saver: "Fresh carrot or apple juice and water with lemon and ginger help give my skin a healthy look."

Transitioning from modeling to acting isn't the only big change in Amber Valletta's life these days. "My skin has become much more sensitive to products," says the 35-year-old mom. "I now have to be more diligent about what I use."

Skin tip: SPF is a must. "I live in California, so I wear sunscreen every day, even if it's cloudy."

Beauty indulgence: "I love products." Her current facial regimen includes items from Epicuren, Dermalogica, and LancerRX, a line by her Beverly Hills dermatologist, Harold Lancer.

At 35, Harlow still fronts some of the biggest campaigns, including Chanel skin care.

At-home secret: "I love putting yogurt and egg whites on my face. It's so moisturizing and soothing."

Skin expert: After working under hot lights with layers of makeup on all day, she turns to facialist Elena Schell, owner of the Elena Schell Skin Care Clinic in New York City. "When she performs extractions, she doesn't leave a single mark."

In 1993, the German model Nadia Auermann became a sensation with her striking platinum locks and legs that seemed to go on forever.

Beauty philosophy: "I think women look best when they're natural," says Auermann, 38. "With makeup, I always find it's better to concentrate on one part, like your eyes or lips."

Favorite colorist: That signature blonde takes a bit of work. "I tried four or five colorists before I found Mandy at Vidal Sassoon in Berlin. Without her, my life would be difficult."
