In the 1990s, Cindy Crawford became a household name for her flawless supermodel features.

Now, the mom of two is making waves for a photo not hiding the affects of aging.

A leaked photo of Crawford in lingerie that appears to have minimal retouching has been burning up the internet recently, and many are praising the 48-year-old for being, well, normal.

The photo in question was taken during a shoot for a December 2013 cover story from Marie Claire magazine's Mexico and Latin America editions.

The magazine said in a statement that seeing the untouched photo is "an enlightenment."

"We've always known Crawford was beautiful, but seeing her like this only makes us love her more," the magazine writes.

They point to a recent interview with Crawford in which she says: "I really think--at any age--it's learning to be comfortable in your own skin. ...If women would treat themselves with the same kind of love they give to their friends, that would be such a great gift we could give ourselves. ...What makes you the most attractive is self-confidence. That's what people see."
