6 Of The World's Most Beautiful Older Women!
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/lesley-m-m-blume/6-of-the...

just saw a recent picture of comedienne Joan Rivers that made me want to throw up. Her face is now stretched tighter than a piano string; her mouth and snout bear more than a passing resemblance to that grotesque "cat-woman," Jocelyn Wildenstein.

"I've had so much plastic surgery," Rivers told The New York Times earlier this year, "when I die they will donate my body to Tupperware."

Ironically, she's become the industry's worst poster child. I'd rather have my jawline sag to the floor than end up looking like Rivers.

Recent reports say that the number of pricey cosmetic surgeries is declining, thanks to the recession. Yet Americans are hardly shying away from the knife. According to new stats from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, in 2008 billions were spent on over 12 million cosmetic plastic surgery procedures. Women account for a staggering 91% of these procedures.

2. Helen Mirren, yes. But Anjelica Huston?

6. Yes, Huston is starting to resemble a cartoon witch more and more.
And I also agree re: Sophia

3. I love Gloria Steinem


I think half of her beauty is good genes and the other half is from following her passion.

my dad has that recollection; my mother says she doesn't remember if that was the case or not. :)

26. I love Catherine Deneuve. she was great in Roman Polanksi's
Edited on Wed Jun-03-09 05:48 PM by jonnyblitz
1965 'Repulsion". she was also great in "Dancer in the Dark" with Bjork. Didn't she have a love scene with Susan Sarandon in "the Hunger"?

16. +1....
I think going grey gracefully is WAY more attractive than ridiculous dye jobs. That goes for women as well as men!

Edited on Wed Jun-03-09 07:03 PM by TheCentepedeShoes
told me I looked like her... sorry, no late '60's pictures of me to compare
Said he had seen Catherine in The April Fools and it was her personality in the role, too

19. Sophia Loren looks horrible. She was a joke at the Academy Awards. I'd suggest Vanessa Redgrave
in her place.

24. Is this Lena Horne? If so, she looks fantastic. A courageous and
beautiful woman who fought hard for her rightful place in the world of music.

22. My guess would be that most of the world's most beautiful older women are not celebrities
but just regular people.

27. I think you're right
Many have had some work done, just not as much as Joan Rivers.

34. I'd wager they all have...
be very surprised to find out that any handn't. I know Susan Sarandon said she'd only do her jawline and eyes...

I just wish it wasn't so popular to praise the youthful appearance of people who've had facelifts. Seems to set a bad example, IMO.

29. What about Charlotte Rampling?


Not well known in this country, more so in the UK and France. Age 63.

30. Iman is 53.
I just wouldn't consider her to be an "older woman"...maybe "middle aged".

32. I don't know if one would consider Mamie Van Doren a timeless beauty...but
I can't believe this woman is like 78 years old, she doesn't look it......
