It's easy to look good when you're a teenager or in your 20s. Your metabolism is faster, you can get away with wearing ridiculous fashions and no one bats an eye, and -- the least fair fact of all -- you can stay up all night and somehow won't look like a ghoul the next day (what's that about anyway)?
Most women accept that they have to work a little harder as they get older. And some are a lot like these 8 female celebrities -- they actually look even more gorgeous the older they get.
I know, I know, it doesn't seem possible given how we're constantly told younger = better. Dancing With the Stars' Candace Cameron Bure recently admitted that she likes her body now, at 37, way more than she ever did when she was in her 20s. And it makes sense. The body you have in your 30s, 40s, 50s, and beyond is the one you actually work hard to attain. Of course you should be super proud of it!
These 8 celebs are living proof that maturity and far better styling choices can add a certain womanly appeal and charm that isn't commonly found in younger women. Here are our favorite age-defying celebs, most of whom look better now than they did when they were younger with little to no help from plastic surgery. Hurray to that!
