The moisturization of it all!
Ladies, we are done hearing that men age better than women. The truth of the matter is that women often work twice as hard as men do to get to where they are in this world. Remember that the next time you hear someone say that men age gracefully. More importantly, remember that age is just a number! Sure, there are some inevitable elements that come with aging, but you are only as old as you let yourself be.
If you’re a true Wendy Watcher we know you’ll want to see some receipts. We got you. When you dip it and do it like these celebrities, you realize age really is just a number.
Angela Bassett is known for being more than one of the greatest actresses of our time. She’s also known for her unfaltering beauty. It’s no wonder people marvel at Angela when she walks the red carpet. She’s still a straight knockout at almost 60 years-old! Like her looks, Angela’s career has only gotten better with age. She was most recently in the record breaking must-see movie “Black Panther,” and will join the Mission Impossible franchise in “Mission Impossible: Fallout” hitting theaters on July 27.
Christie Brinkley is a good 64! One of the most beautiful supermodels of all time shows us that taking care of yourself is the best way to beat your age. Christie takes our breath away from head to toe and keeps it young by surrounding herself with young people, especially her daughters! Remember that Sports illustrated cover featuring Christie’s daughters Alexa Ray and Sailor, and Christie wearing that itty bitty bikini bottom. Sailor actually picked that and told her mom to “be bold or go home.” Christie is certainly living a bold life by flaunting her stuff and looking better than many models in their prime!
We have nothing but endless love for Diana Ross, and so does everyone else! Diana Ross looks decades younger than 74, but the real wonder here is that she is still performing for her people! Last fall, Diana received the AMA Lifetime Achievement award and performed a medley of her hits. She has 32 Billboard Hot 100 singles and 18 number one hits, so the performance went rather long (we didn’t mind a bit though). Diana will perform on June 16 with the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, as well as at New York City’s newest venue Pier 17 on September 30. Diana is so cool, that her daughter Tracee Ellis Ross isn’t ashamed to admit she steals things from her mom.
To Wendy, Jane will always be juicy Jane Fonda! At 80 years-old Jane might not be dippin’ and doin’ it anymore (if you catch our drift), but don’t let her good looks deceive you. Jane is a tough lady! Remember when Jane called out Megyn Kelly on her own show?! That was a good Hot Topic! Jane admits to getting work done, but she believes her good attitude, good posture, and taking care of her health play a major role in how she looks and feels today. You go Jane Fonda!
Let’s talk about Naomi Campbell. She turns 48 this month, but she looks half her age. Naomi is a beautiful woman inside and out and has paved a new runway for models today. After over three decades in the business, she is still leading fashion shows for top designers, and recently hosted a Fashion for Relief fundraiser in Cannes to raise money for the #TimesUp movement. Naomi is a woman to look up to not because of her Goddess like appearance, but because she doesn’t stop trying to better herself.
