18 Female Rock Stars Who Look Even Better Now Than When They Were Younger (PHOTOS)

They say that hard-core partying is part of the rock 'n' roll lifestyle, but that doesn't seem to be the case for some music superstars such as Gwen Stefani, who manages to look even better and younger than she did a decade ago. (Maybe new love Blake Shelton has something to do with that.)

Click through to see 18 female musicians and singers who've only gotten more beautiful with age. Some of these ladies look even better than they did 10 or 20 years ago!

    The Material Girl has still got it! Madonna, seen here in 2012 and on her Blond Ambition tour in 1990, is known for keeping a strict diet and exercise regime, and it looks like the hard work is paying off.

  • Faith Hill

    She may have ditched the bangs for a sleeker chop, but 48-year-old country music star Faith Hill looked as gorgeous at the 2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party as she did back in 1994.

    A lot has changed for our favorite Hollaback Girl since 1999 (photo on right), but with a new boyfriend and outlook on life, Gwen Stefani proved at the 2016 Vanity Fair Oscar party that it's possible to revamp your looks (and life!) for the better.

  • Mariah Carey

    She may be a mom of two now, but Mariah Carey hasn't been slouching in the beauty department. The pop diva showed up to the Elton John Aids Foundation Oscar Party in 2016 rocking some lighter-colored locks than she did back in 1994, but otherwise looking nearly the same!

    She may not be called Ginger Spice anymore, but Geri Halliwell still looks the same at the 2016 Brit Awards as she did back in the height of her Spice Girls days.

  • Janet Jackson

    You can call her Miss Jackson, but we prefer "the lady in white"! Janet Jackson looked so stunning in a white ensemble and flowing curls in 2002 that she must have felt compelled to repeat a similar look on the red carpet in 2013.

  • Shania Twain

    We're dying to know what Shania Twain's secret is to looking so young! She seems as if she's barely aged from 2001 to 2014.

    "If you've got it, flaunt it" seems to be Celine Dion's eternal motto. The 47-year-old chanteuse showed off her flawless skin and body at both the 2013 Billboard Music Awards and the 1996 Grammy Awards.

  • Gloria Estefan

    The Grammy winner may sing the blues on a regular basis, but Alison Krauss, seen here in 2012 and 2004, has nothing to feel sad about when it comes to her looks!

    It's hard to believe that there's over a 20-year difference in between these two photos of Reba McEntire, pictured here picking up an award at the 2015 Country Music Awards and at the 1994 American Music Awards. At 60 years old, the country singer is still smoking hot, both physically and career-wise. 

  • Shirley Manson

    After a brief stint as a pixie-haired blonde back in 2002, Shirley Manson, the lead singer of Garbage, returned to her red-haired roots, looking better than ever, in 2015.

  • Trisha Yearwood

    One can only hope to age as well as Trisha Yearwood! The country singer's hair might be the only clue as to which of these two photos was taken in 2015 and which one in 2000.

  • Stevie Nicks

    She's toned down the hair a bit since the '80s, but Stevie Nicks, 67, is still as pretty and punk rock as ever.

    Long before gray hair was considered chic, the lovely Emmylou Harris, seen here at the 2014 ASCAP Centennial Awards and the 2001 Grammy Awards, made it her signature look.

  • Marie Osmond

    She was a little bit more country back in 1978, but, in 2016, the gorgeous Marie Osmond is definitely a bit more rock'n'roll with her dark lipstick and black ensemble.
