Yolanda Hadid is celebrating her birthday by giving us a gift. On January 14, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum posted a jaw-dropping photo of herself in lingerie, and the image left us feeling so inspired — and also more informed.
Wearing a sheer, lacy pink bodysuit with a petal-pink topper, the Dutch beauty posed for the camera like a pro. (Well, she is a pro... so that's no wonder!) In her caption, Yolanda addressed turning 55 and shared a powerful — and potentially life-saving — message about authenticity and health. Here's what she wrote:
"Fifty Five and smiling from the inside out.... Finally back to the original 1964. Living in a body free of breast implants, fillers, botox, exstensions and all the [bulls---] I thought I needed in order to keep up with what society conditioned me to believe what a sexy woman should look like until the toxicity of it all almost killed me........ Your health is your wealth so please make educated decisions, research the partial information you’re given by our broken system before putting anything foreign in your body."
The caption continued: "It took me many years of undoing some bad choices I made for myself before I finally found the freedom to sustainable internal beauty and acceptance of what is the best version of myself by no standards but my own...... It’s on us to learn to love our selves and celebrate our unique, one of a kind beauty at all ages as we move through this journey called 'life.' Beauty has no meaning without your health."
While you let that message sink in, take a look at the birthday girl, who's incredibly beautiful in so many ways.
Happy 55th, Yolanda!
