Cindy and her husband have since been spotted soaking up the sun on the beach, with the fashion icon showing she's still fabulous at 50 in her sexy black bikini.

One eyewitness said that Cindy and her husband looked truly loved-up, with Rande going out of his way to ensure his wife enjoyed her birthday getaway. "They are a great couple – holding hands, looking into each other's eyes, very happy and loved-up," a source told Entertainment Tonight. "Rande is always such a gentleman with her, making sure she is always okay."

While Cindy is yet to share any photos from her holiday, she did reflect on another special birthday – her 21st birthday celebrations in 1987. Sharing a photo of herself blowing out the candles on her Vogue-themed birthday cake, Cindy wrote: "#TBT My 21st birthday. The cake said 'What's next?' – now I know!"

That future may involve stepping back from modeling. Cindy previously hinted that she may retire from her fashion career when she turns 50, but she has since set the record straight. She clarified that while she plans to turn her attention toward "my businesses, friends and family", she has a mantra to "never say never" to any opportunities that may come her way.

Cindy will have plenty of time to think about her future while in St. Barts, an island which offers celebrities a safe haven to relax and unwind. An ever-popular holiday destination with A-listers, it has played host to the likes of Kendall Jenner, Harry Styles, Pippa Middleton and her brother James in the last few months alone.
