Throwback Thursday winner! Cindy Crawford dug back deep to find her first-ever bikini cover photo to share with her Twitter followers on Thursday, June 6.

"My very first 'cover' during high school in DeKalb, shot in my high school boyfriend's backyard," the 47-year-old supermodel tweeted. "Believe me when I say I had absolutely no idea where that photo would lead to!"

The attached image was a snapshot of the front page of her hometown newspaper, the DeKalb Nite Weekly, from DeKalb, Ill. The issue was from Nov. 3, 1982, when Crawford would have been just 16 years old.

On the cover, the teen beauty showed off her now-famous curves while posing seductively beside a pool. Since then, Crawford has gone on to cover Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Elle, Cosmopolitan and Allure — to name a few!

In May, Crawford, who is mom to son Presley, 13, and daughter, Kaia, 11, with restaurateur husband Rande Gerber, proved that she hasn't aged a bit when she attended the premiere of The Great Gatsby at the Cannes Film Festival. She flaunted her flawless figure and ageless face on the red carpet in a stunning, white Roberto Cavalli gown.
