Cindy Crawford is not afraid of aging.

"I feel like all those things I did over the years are paying off now," she tells StyleList.

"I never smoked, I didn't bake in the sun and I started taking care of my skin at an early age. I'm pretty happy with the way my face looks." (And we don't blame her.)

Regular facials with Dr. Jean-Louis Sebagh are part of her skincare routine, and Crawford explains that "microdermabrasion works for me -- it makes my skin glow."

"I worked with Dr. Jean-Louis Sebagh to create Meaningful Beauty line of anti-aging products and I've been using them for 14 years."

Even with all that, Crawford admits, "I'm 44, I don't know what's going to work for me in the future."

"I already see that when I lose a little weight, my face looks thin, drawn and tired," proving that the old adage about choosing either your derriere or your face to look good as you age, but hardly ever both.

She claimed her famously shapely legs don't look as good as they used to (we disagree) without lots of work, including regular hiking and working out on a Power Plate, which "gives you that extra core workout."

Crawford, wearing a metallic Roberto Cavalli minidress, a diamond studded Omega watch and carrying a Lauren Merkin bag, was holding court at DIFFA's Dining by Design gala in New York City, where she sponsored a table that was decked out in her wares from JCPenney, which she hopes to expand.

"There's still many more categories we can do with home," she says. "I love doing home [design] – I really enjoy it." And she likes decorating her own homes with products from the line. "I get it once it's available. I just ordered this bowl and the glasses with the swirl for our beach house. "

One thing Crawford can hardly get her hands on is her One Kiss by Cindy Crawford jewelry, which hits stores for Mother's Day, but someone else helped themselves to a few pieces a little early.

At the DIFFA dinner, each place setting was decorated with a little box containing a piece from the jewelry collection. Before dinner even began, three of the 18 boxes were pilfered.

That's some hot product!
