Vendela in her late 30s

The model Vendela, in a publicity photo from Norway's Aschehoug publishing company, taken early in the 21st century. Vendela was born in 1967, so she was likely in her late 30s when this photo was taken. By then she had already become internationally famous as a model; in 2002 she published her book Model Mommy, a cleverly-titled (and we mean that) guide to nutrition and exercise for new mothers.
