Elle – who owns lifestyle company WelleCo – still gives models half her age a run for their money, but she recently confessed in an Instagram post that she can’t solely ‘rely on genetics’ now she’s reached her fifth decade.
‘Today at 52, I need to make conscious choices that support my body for optimum health, vitality and beauty from the inside out,’ she revealed.
