It’s easy to think of a whole bunch of women who we consider great beauties, who are all in their 20’s and 30’s, but let’s face it, it’s a whole lot easier for younger women to look good when the signs of ageing are still decades away! Today, we want to take a look at some of the older women in the spotlight who’ve been around for years and who are still looking incredible.
Probably the first over-50 female to spring to mind is the great Dame Helen Mirren, who’s been wow-ing us for years with her youthful good looks and ability to wear a bikini like a woman half her age. Helen is actually 71 this year and shows that growing old gracefully can be done without turning to drastic surgical procedures. We’d love an insight into her skin routine!
We were genuinely shocked, when researching this article, to discover that Tilda Swinton is actually 55 years old. Considering she’s often photographed without a scrap of make-up, it’s clear to see that Tilda’s face is resisting the signs of ageing in an almost super-human fashion and her piercing green eyes and alabaster complexion remain youthful as ever.
Wife of the late, great David Bowie, Somali supermodel Iman is actually SIXTY years old and has the wrinkle-free complexion of a teenager. Eyes are often the first place to betray our age, but Iman’s remain as smooth as they were in her twenties.
Miss Keaton has been divisive in her style over the years, showing up to awards ceremonies in masculine tuxedos, but the 70-year old grandmother never fails to look youthful and radiant. The Oscar-winning actress has been on our screens since 1970 and the only signs of ageing she seems to show are her beautiful smile lines, perhaps hinting that this lady has had a happy and fulfilling life.
Being married to The President of the United States of America is enough to turn anyone grey, but Michelle Obama has handled the job with grace and beauty, remaining youthful throughout. Only a scratch over fifty, at 52, Mrs. Obama has skin which most 20 years olds would be jealous of and cheekbones to die for!
