T-shirt and jeans, rock and roll, Cindy Crawford: Some American classics never go out of style.

While it's hard not to obsess over Cindy's flawless figure, shampoo commercial-worthy locks or glam off-duty style, the supermodel's 30-plus years in the industry mean her appeal runs deeper than surface level.

What exactly is behind this fashion star's staying power? In an attempt to decode the camera darling's secrets to success, we've rounded up the latest and greatest on Cindy below. We think it's pretty clear this timeless icon is as relevant as ever — and not just another pretty face!

For one, her show-stopping appearance as the Headmistress in Taylor Swift's record-breaking "Bad Blood" music video is certainly brightening Cindy's spotlight. One scan through the comments section shows a slew of Cindy love from users like Abi25, who wrote, "Omg she has Cindy Crawford in it!! omg omg omg."

The Headmistress takes charge as an empowered female fighter, effortlessly blending in with the video's Rolodex of 20-something starlets — showing confidence and a take-charge attitude can catapult you to the head of the pack, no questions asked.

A few months back, a controversial pic claiming to be un-retouched Cindy in lingerie for Marie Claire Mexico went viral — though it was later declared by photographer John Russo to be a doctored version of his original. Cindy didn't let the media break down her body. Instead, her hubby Randy Gerber posted the below pic of his wife for Valentine's Day.

Not to mention, the on-the-move model will ring in her 50th year in September by releasing Becoming, a collection of essays and photographs celebrating her life and career as one of America's favorite top models (move over Tyra; she had it first).

But when she's not putting together books, updating her skincare line or advocating for global charities, the mega-mom is home supporting son Presley Walker and mini-me daughter (and up-and-coming model) Kaia Gerber.

From supermodel to super mom to super woman, here's to hoping Cindy Crawford doesn't hang up her cape any time soon.
