Age. Some people say it ain’t nothing but a number, but with so much emphasis on youth, many women are left wondering if it’s still possible to look sexy over 60. And the answer is a resounding hell yes! They were actresses, athletes, showgirls, mothers, wives and businesswomen but have managed to keep a level of time defying elegance that seems to defy the laws of science. Today we look at some of the most beautiful woman in Hollywood over the age of 60. They may be old enough to be some people’s grandmothers, but even to this day are the epitome of glamour.
Goldie Hawn 69
Is that Goldie Hawn or her daughter Kate Hudson? The original big eyed ‘it girl’ has made extremely good use of her sense of humour by crediting her enviable physique to positive thinking. “When you are in a better state of mind, a healthier state of mind, the body reacts,” Looking great Goldie!
Christie Brinkley 61
The fact that the supermodel and actress, Christie Brinkley, is 61 is unbelievable and, quite frankly, unfair. Brinkley puts vegetarianism down to her incredible youthful appearance. Pass the carrots please.
Cher 69 (?)
Although no one really knows what age Cher actually is, all we need to know is she is looking more incredible than ever. As the new face of Marc Jacobs, the 60 something Cher showed off her 20 something face and the internet stood still. Time may pass by but Cher will forever be a beauty icon for decades to come.
Jessica Lange 66
Jessica Lange can do no wrong in our eyes. Since hitting mainstream screens on American Horror Story, playing powerful sensual roles has always been her forte. Now the face of Marc Jacob’s beauty line, Jessica shows she is very much still the sex pot who wriggled out of rope ties in King Kong back in 1976. What a woman.
Susan Sarandon 68
At 68, Susan Sarandon looks better than many actresses 30 years her junior. Actually, make that 40. Mind, body, soul, Sarandon has it going on. Jealous? Us? Yes.
Apart from helping millions of people around the world with her caring nature, time and advice, we can’t help but think Oprah is looking better with every year. It’s clear that being officially the most successful woman in the world hasn’t got in the way of her beauty regime!
Meryl Streep 65
Meryl is one of those actresses often held up as an example of ‘women who are surprisingly glamorous despite being past 60!’ It’s a tired and annoying cliche, however, really it would be impossible to create a list like this without her in it. As beautiful as she is talented, Streep holds the record of having the most Academy Awards than any other actor. And they say you can’t have it all?
Tina Turner 75
Her face is remarkably unlined, her figure as trim as ever and those famous legs are still sensational. At 75 Tina Turner just gets better with each passing decade.
Helen Mirren 69
Age hasn’t slowed this lady down! Over the course of her career, Dame Helen Mirren has taken home an Academy Award, four BAFTAs, three Golden Globes and four Emmys – all while looking absolutely fabulous. You go girl!
Cailtyn Jenner 65
How could we not mention the absolutely stunning Caitlyn Jenner? We all seen her debut on Vanity Fair this month and were blown away by her beauty. THAT’S how you break the Internet, Kim.
While you may feel like looking hot is a young person’s game, these incredible woman are showing the world that age does not define beauty. If anything it shows there really is truth in the saying that when you feel good, you look good too – not matter what your age is. Always remember ladies, looking and feeling sexy should always be on your own terms. What’s your beauty secrets? Tweet us over at @Defacto_Salons.
