Perennial Elle

“There’s so much discussion surrounding health and fitness,” said Elle Macpherson to the Daily Express on the occasion of her 50th birthday, “but what I really aspire to is wellness.”

Looks pretty well to me.

There is, incidentally, some disagreement over Macpherson’s age: some sources put her date of birth as 29 March 1964, which would make her 50 today, or 29 March 1963, which would make her 51. I submit that it doesn’t matter a whole lot one way or another, at least until she’s eligible for Medicare.

    She was obviously much younger in the pix.

    It’s a plot to get longer visit times to Web sites.

    Nobody is quite that smooth and shiny without the photo taking a trip to the ‘shop, but a google image search shows that she looks great for 50, if somewhat more textured IRL.

    Oh, in too many people’s books, health=fitness=slimness.

    I expect “wellness” to soon go that direction. In fact, a lot of so-called workplace “wellness” programs are mainly aimed at pushing for a lowering of BMIs among workers.

    The only way I’d ever be “slim,” by Mad Ave standards, would be to develop some kind of horrible disease, possibly a terminal one. I take care of myself in a lot of ways (eating more vegetables than child-me would have thought possible, exercising most days of the week), but I’ll NEVER be “slim.”
