40+

Twas inspired by a post on Forty Not Out on Elle MacPherson and decided to do me own post on fab-u-less 40+ women (being a fab 40+ woman myself). Granted, there could possibly be some plastic survery or injectibles in this group, but nevertheless, they are still crazy bananas hot hot hot. Wivout further adooooo....


Jennifer Aniston, 41: Pretty sure we would be besties if we ever met. Call me....


Gwen Stefani, 41: Total girl crush on Gwen - she is a style icon and one of those girls who can hang with the guys or loan you the most FAB-U-LESS shoes from her closet, plus she is a self-admitted dork, which automatically ranks her high on my list of "she's just like ME women." I mean, minus the money, success, fame, adulation and stalkery fans.

Lucy Liu, 41: Don't see her around much these days, but I have loved her ever since she first chewed the scenery on Ally McBeal.

Halle Berry, 41: Pretty much the perfect woman. I hate her. I love her.

Elle Mac-Frigging-Pherson, 47: WHAT????? God, please let me look like this when I grow up.

Courtney Cox, 46, and Demi Moore, 47: A two-fer. Please see text above.

Cate Blanchett, 41: One of the best actresses around, and possibly my generation's Meryl Streep (talkin' bout my geennnnn-er-A-tion...) in my humble opinion. She rules.

Ashley Judd, 42: Where has she BEEN lately??? Adorable, gorgeous, and smart as all git out (and probably never says things like "smart as all git out...")

So who are YOUR ....ehemmmm....favorite "vintage" celebrities? Spill it.
Merci!

Oooh - I like this post! How about Julia Roberts (43), Sandra Bullock (46), and Teri Hatcher (46)? These ladies rock!

Agreed Sandra Bullock, Christy Turlington Burns (41), and a bunch of 50+ ladies like Donna Karan, Helen Mirren, etc If I sat down and gave it some thought I'll bet my list would be long. BTW about 10 years ago I was shopping at a store in NYC and in walks Hallie Berry and hard to believe but she's way more beautiful in person (if that's even possible). She absolutely radiated gorgeousness, it was blinding. No I didn't go up and chat I just passed and said hello and she said hello right back. Thus cementing my girl crush on her forever...

Full House said...

Even though these girls have money to hire the best to keep them looking so great, it still gives me hope. I kind of got a little woozy thinking about the fact that 50 is not that far away for me. I usually think of 40+ looking different than these ladies.

With the big 4-0 smiling at me in 31 short days, this post gives me the warm fuzzies.

AND I will continue to slather myself from head to toe with lotion and pray I come out looking half this lovely.

How about Salma Hayek - 44 and I always love me some Sandra Bullock...LOVE

I can't believe I left Helen Mirren off my list. She is bananas. Also, Judi Dench, espesh in Casino Royale - LOVE HUH in that - she looks amazing, but then, it could just be the glow bouncing off Daniel Craig's um...ASSETS...that made her look that good.

I also concur with your above additions. Sandy Bullock, Julia, and Christy Turlington Burns - the hawtness.

Have you seen how insane Halle Berry's body is at 43..like come on..please! it kills me..there are 23 yrs old looking more, to use your term, vintage-y

Also lets not forget Fab Chica Jennifer Lopez.. what a bod on that one!!

Courtnee said...

Love this! Tina Turner is what 70 and she's bad ass! Carolina Herrera is gorge too.

Halle..swoon!Sometimes looking at her makes me want to just give up and go back to bed.since she seems like such a normal girl who happens to be drop dead beautiful it makes it hard to hate her.

I just about found your blog and I agree - I want to look like this when I grow-up. I'm already excited about my 30th, if this is what 40 looks like then I really don't want to wait 10 more years.
