At a party earlier this week celebrating a new launch from the brand, the supermodel told us that the most valuable beauty tip she's ever received is to "pick a weight that you can maintain, and stay there."

The advice was from Dr. Jean-Louis Sebagh, the anti-aging specialist who formulates the Meaningful Beauty products. "He said, 'constantly losing and gaining weight is not good for the skin-the elastin can't handle it.'"

Even legendary photographer Richard Avedon advised her to maintain a healthy weight. "When I got divorced from my first husband I got really thin," said Crawford. "[Richard Avedon] told me, 'you look better with a little weight on you.'"

"I try not to be tempted to lose that extra five pounds. I could do it, but I know eventually it would just come back. This is the weight that my body wants me to be." Preach, girl!
