Cindy Crawford shares her brilliant philosophy on style after 50

For some, "aging gracefully" means letting the grays grow in and cultivating a love of flowy fabrics.

For Cindy Crawford, who will turn 51 on Feb. 20, it means ignoring the "rules" and making her own decisions about what feels appropriate and authentic.

Double trouble with @Omega in Sydney!

“Before my 50th birthday, I cut my hair to a long bob,” Crawford recently told The Daily Telegraph. "But then thought, ‘I don’t feel like myself.’"

She's since gone back to her signature long locks — and with such voluminous, healthy hair, who can blame her?

(Yes, her hair still looks like that. Life is unfair.)

For Crawford, decisions below the neck are made on a case-by-case basis. “I still wear a bikini because I always wear bikinis, but I am not comfortable wearing short skirts," she said. “The rule for me is to do what I am comfortable with.”

Indeed, since turning the big 5-0, Crawford has shared several (tasteful!) bikini shot on Instagram.

Great end to a great weekend.

Homeward bound. Thanks for an amazing time in Sydney, @Omega!

We're guessing, though that these Daisy Dukes are out of the day-to-day rotation?
