Washed up? Not Kristen McMenamy, who's on Vogue Italia's May cover in a bikini.

It's the attack of the 40-something supermodels!

Hot on the heels of 45-year-old Cindy Crawford's pants-less shoot for Vogue Mexico and her appearance in a slit-up-to-there dress on Elle China, 46-year-old Kristen McMenamy is posing in a skimpy bikini for the May cover of Vogue Italia.

McMenamy—who famously posed in a controversial oil-slicked shoot for the magazine's August 2010 following the BP oil spill—swaps her signature gray hair for an icy platinum blonde look as she models a blue tribal-print bikini from John Richmond Beachwear paired with long gray LaCrasia gloves.

Judging by the accompanying Steven Meisel-photographed editorial, which features a gingham one-piece and some seriously tiny animal-print bikinis, the Louis Vuitton campaign star (and mother of three!) hasn't lost the waif look that made her famous in the 1990s.

And just to show that age hasn't slowed her down, McMenamy appears in no fewer than four topless shots. Youngsters, consider yourself served.
