That OG supermodel Cindy Crawford knows her way around a red carpet comes as no surprise — she has literal decades of experience under her belt as one of the World's Most Beautiful People. But not every fresh young face ends up aging with this much grace.

Her ability to balance sexiness and elegance was on full display Tuesday night at the Marie Claire Image Maker Awards in Los Angeles. Wearing a black Balmain dress (designer Olivier Rousteing was honored at the event) with sheer sleeves and leg detailing, strappy heels and straightforward makeup, Crawford somehow managed to come off as perfectly sophisticated even as her dress made it clear that she could not possibly be wearing underpants. But even typing that out seems crass, because the vibe that came across was not one that made you want to focus on potential underwear dilemmas. Whatever. The point is, Cindy's doing a great job of reminding us all where her Cool Teen kids Kaia and Presley got their great genes from, in case there was any chance we forgot.
