Not that we ever doubted it, but it’s clear from SHAPE magazine’s April cover: Naomi’s  still got it. At 43 and after over 20 years in the industry, Campbell still looks every bit the legs-up-to-here, mahagony-skinned goddess.

In the issue (on stands March 24), Campbell shares details about her path to the upper echelons of the fashion industry—including her battles with discrimination. “I learned that if you don’t accept no for an answer, you often get a yes,” she says.

Campbell attributes her perennially toned physique to eating well and exercising regularly. “I don’t believe in starving myself. I’ve never done it, and I never will,” she says in the issue. “I’m even more active when I’m juicing, doing both yoga and Pilates every day.” Her diet mainstays include hot water with lemon, vegetable juices, and salads with fish or steak.

Alas, not even Naomi is perfect. She devulged a tough-to-shake smoking vice to the glossy: “People told me cigarettes are harder to quit than alcohol. I didn’t beleive it, but you know what? It is.”
