Deborah Hutton will turn heads on the newsstand this month by stripping off for the January 2012 issue of the Australian Women’s Weekly to celebrate turning 50.Â Photographed by David Gubert as part of the The Weekly’s January Body Issue and under the magazine\’s policy of being only lightly retouched and the subject not being made to look thinner, taller or younger.
Inside Deborah explains her decision saying for most of her life she was crippled by anxiety and insecurity despite a highly successful modelling career.Â In a firstâ€hand account, Deborah describes how she regrets wasting so much time worrying about her appearance and wishes she had stopped to be thankful for the gifts she was given. She explains why it is only now, at 50, that she feels at peace with her body.
“The reason I agreed to pose nude for The Weekly is to celebrate that I\’m 50 and my body is the best it can be,” says Deborah. “It\’s a celebration for me of not shying away from the fact I\’m 50, a time most women fear, as society dictates the best years are behind them.
“I don\’t have Botox or fillers and I don\’t want to do anything drastic to my face. I hope to be one of those who ride it through. I think I\’m in a good frame of mind to do that.
“So, on behalf of those leaving their 40s, I say embrace a positive future, celebrate the fact we are still here, that our bodies are healthy and still working, and make the most of every precious moment.”
