The average model may be barely old enough to drive a car, and few last as long in the cutthroat modeling  industry as Cynthia Bailey.


The Real Housewives of Atlanta star’s career in fashion seems to be getting even better with age, with the 47-year-old model and mom snagging the cover of Kontrol magazine’s “Fabulous at Any Age” issue.

On the cover, Cynthia looks stunning in an open-weave white dress and simple gemstone jewelry, with a pink lip and bold brow on top.

When asked about how she has made a name for herself in such a demanding industry, Cynthia replied, “You have to be able to put in the work to have a successful career in any industry.”

While it’s obvious that Cynthia’s dedication to her craft — and her uncanny ability to stave off the aging process completely — have served her well, she recently admitted that she’s developed a more laid-back attitude toward her looks as she ages.

“I don’t have to apologize for being me,” Cynthia revealed to Ebony. “I’m no longer critiquing my body—I look great, back fat and all.”
