Stephanie Seymour has been modeling for nearly 30 years, and her career just keeps getting bigger. The 45-year-old bombshell recently signed to be the face of Estée Lauder. (We told you ’90s supermodels were on a roll right now!)

“I am honored to be part of the Estée Lauder family,” Seymour said in a statement. “As a young girl my mother had a dream for me and that was to be an Estée Lauder model! So this is truly a dream fulfilled.”

When we first saw this photo on the Estée Lauder Twitter account, we thought it might be an early Throwback Thursday post — she hasn’t changed a bit since her early days of modeling. She’s giving major model attitude in the behind-the-scenes shot, which shows off her radiant skin and fit figure.

“Stephanie is the ultimate modern beauty icon,” said Jane Hertzmark Hudis, Estée Lauder’s global brand president. “Beautiful and accomplished in fashion, entertainment and in life, I am thrilled to welcome her to Estée Lauder.”

Seymour joins current brand ambassadors Joan Smalls and Hilary Rhoda as a face of the brand (we’d love to be there when they all swap supermodel stories!). What do you think of Seymour’s new gig?

she is pretty but there are prettier and more accomplished models than her that would be a better fit for this classy brand. i’m unsure what has she accommplished in life other than modeling? PhD? and she might want to distance herself from her boys. they don’t have the greatest reputation and i would think estee would have looked into that.

Seabot on

She’s still gorgeous.

Stylista on

Let’s hope the company doesn’t photoshop her, but let her true beauty as a woman, not a 15 year old, shine through.

ImALadyToo on

I think it is great that they are using a beautiful 40-something woman who takes care of herself instead of a 20 year old that most of us cannot relate to remotely.

Saraj on

Stunning.

Sue on

Fantastic! And yay to Estee Lauder for using a model that is over 20. I think it is and will be a fantastic campaign!

HA RC on

She is a classic model. Why shouldn’t she have this contract. TO me, she is the perfect face for EL.

Glen on

Outstanding choice – classic, elegant beauty and much more relatable compared to a 20 year old.

Kris on

By far the sexiest VS model ever and what a body for 45 and for having 4 kids.

Bring back Dazzling Silver Corporate Lauder!. Who cares who the spokesperson is, the product is more important to your success.

Stacey McRae on

Estée Lauder is not cruelty free, so why would anyone buy this brand?

jemlm on

She looks great…and it’s about time that a brand used a model closest to the real age of women buying cosmetics…not just 17 year olds. If they don’t photoshop too much, no big deal….all the mascara adds use “fillers” to sell.

Liz on

She is gorgeous & looks great for her age but the reason why is because she married a multi-billionaire that can pay for her top notch medical procedures!! Once just once I wish a major cosmetics line would hire a person that actually uses their products without the major help of cosmetic surgeries! Btw I’m available! 😜

Beautiful as she was in high school. She was always nice.

CallmeMaybe on

jellie, are you always this nasty or just having a bad day?

dp on

i remember on an oprah show, she had the 4 top supermodels on to interview them about their big careers in modeling and their lives…and they had absolutely NOTHING to say, it was hilarious. They said so little, had no excitement, nothing. Oprah tried everything to get a conversation going, but nothing. It was funny + strange.

disbelief on

@jellie. What are you talking about? She’s a model not a spokesperson for UNICEF. Even then, it’s her personal life. Modeling is a profession. What do her kids’ lifestyles have to do with her getting a job? And yes, she’s accomplished a big thing in the fashion world–modeling for 30 years.

Annie on

I remember when she was dating Axl Rose and appeared in GnR’s music videos… oh how I miss the 90s!

Jenny! on

She is beautiful! I love this pic.

MrsJAZ on

She’s stunning.
