Cindy Crawford We Want Their Genes! By Hannah Lyons Powell 24 Oct 2014 We chart the A-list women who, like a fine wine, just get better and better with age... Cindy CrawfordAge: 48Why We Love Her: A founding father (or should that be mother?) of the original supermodels from the 80s. That mole has spawned a thousand copycats, yet even years later, she’s still got it. www.surrogacycmc.com/about_us/surrogate-mother-selection-criteria adulttorrent.org Teri HatcherAge: 49Why We Love Her: She's knocking on the door of 50 but one of our favourite Desperate Housewives is taking this ageing business in her stride - she looks absolutely brilliant. Helen MirrenAge: 69Why We Love Her: Helen Mirren still manages to dazzle on the red carpet and have a legion of adoring male fans, proved when her Arthur co-star Russell Brand planted a smacker on her lips at the London premiere last year. Michelle ObamaAge: 50Why We Love Her: First Lady Michelle Obama’s flawless skin ensures she looks decades younger than her 50 years. While those toned arms are an inspiration to women the world over. Click on for more stars who have been blessed with incredible genes. Gwyneth Paltrow Age: 42Why We Love Her: The Oscar-winning mum-of-two has been a pioneer in the beauty stakes for years. The purveyor of early-Noughties poker straight hair, she's one of our all-time beauty icons - and it's not hard to see why. Jennifer Aniston Age: 45Why We Love Her: When Jen-An hit 40 we had to pinch ourselves. Not only is she as stunning as the day that she first waltzed onto our screens as Rachel Greene in 1994 but we feel we’ve kind of grown up with her. Plus, she had a whole haircut named after her (character), which automatically qualifies for the idol stakes. Andie MacDowellAge: 56Why We Love Her: Need you even ask? This is the ultimate 90s girl-next-door; with that shock of amazing curly hair, a Southern lilt and mega-watt smile... Hugh Grant’s character in Four Weddings was mad not to marry her. Jennifer LopezAge: 44Why We Love Her: After two children and a 20-year career, self-styled J-Lo still doesn’t look over a day over 25, and is a positive marvel to genetics. Gwen StefaniAge: 45Why We Love Her: When Gwen first burst onto the scene in the mid-90s, we fell head over heel for her too-cool-for-school attitude and anarchic sense of style. And long may the romance continue: Nearly 20 years later, we still can’t get enough of the platinum blonde singer, who, never parted for too long from her beloved red lippy, is a girl after our own heart. Halle BerryAge: 48Why We Love Her: BECAUSE. SHE. LITERALLY. HASN’T. AGED. Plus, have you seen that body? Sandra BullockAge: 50Why We Love Her: She’s dated some of Hollywood’s hottest men (Jesse James NOT included), won an Oscar, been through the mill and she’s still drop-dead gorgeous. A poster-girl for brunettes the world over, we’ve always loved a bit of a Sandy B. Salma HayekAge: 48Why We Love Her: This fiery Latino temptress has had us hooked since the mid-90s with that main of glossy chestnut hair and deep smoky eyes. And she’s married to the CEO of PPR, who own such luxury goods firms as Gucci, McQueen, McCartney... Gah! Could we admire her anymore?! Susan SarandonAge: 68Why We Love Her: We can barely believe that Susan Sarandon is in her seventh decade. This Oscar-winning dynamo has long had a place in hearts, not only is she one of the most grounded and successful Hollywood stars, she’s also a complete babe. Sixty-five. Can you believe it?! Julianne MooreAge: 53Why We Love Her: And from one redhead to another, we actually cannot believe that the gorgeous Ms. Moore is over 50-years-old. Not that she’s about to slow her fabulousness down anytime soon, and thank goodness for that! Monica BellucciAge: 49Why We Love Her: Bellucci positively epitomizes the term “sex pot” and as one of the most beautiful women in the world, it’s no surprise that Dolce & Gabbana have used the Italian actress in their latest ad campaign. Playing a Sicilian matriarch, Bellucci smoulders her way to fashion dynamite. Ti amo! Helena ChristensenAge: 45Why We Love Her: As one of the original Victoria’s Secret angels, it seems that Peruvian-Danish Christensen has lost little of her appeal some twenty years after originally making her name as a model. With those piercing blue eyes, we’ll never forget (wanting to be) her in that Wicked Game music vid. Helena Bonham CarterAge: 48Why We Love Her: Ever the eccentric with birds nest hairdo and mis-matching shoes to boot, there’s no denying Bonham-Carter’s English rose complexion and that she has been and always will be, an absolute stunner. Christie BrinkleyAge:60Why We Love Her: As the original all-American girl, Christie defies the ageing process, looking as good as ever despite being nearly 60. Kim CattrallAge: 58Why We Love Her: As Samantha Jones in Sex and the City, a generation fell in love with her no-holds-barred approach to life and love. And she’s always more than kept up with her co-stars who are at least a decade younger, so here’s to Kim! Heather GrahamAge: 44Why We Love Her: Did you see her in The Hangover? Exactly. Brooke ShieldsAge: 49Why We Love Her: Not content with being an absolute stunner, she’s also got the most perfect and lauded eyebrows in celebdom. ImanAge: 58Why We Love Her: Because even at 56 and after nearly 35 years in the biz, Somalian-born model (and wife to David Bowie) Iman still has the power to take our breath away. Catherine Zeta-JonesAge: 44Why We Love Her: One of the UK’s most successful exports, Catherine’s Mediterranean-style good looks have kept us hooked all the way from the Welsh mountains to the heady heights of the Hollywood hills. Naomi WattsAge: 45Why We Love Her: Brit actress Naomi Watts’ elfin features continue to have us enthralled. As well as being a darned good actress, her perfect blonde and perennially bobbed hair, as well as that killer-watt(s) smile have meant that the years have been more than kind. Julia RobertsAge: 46Why We Love Her: She is the original pretty woman and certainly one of GLAMOUR.com’s beauty heroes, if only for her unwavering ability to flit between hair colours with ease and those perfect bee-stung lips. Jealous? Us? Juliette BinocheAge: 50Why We Love Her: Affectionately referred to as La Bincohe in the French press, Juliette is one of France’s most successful actresses after first finding fame in The Unbearable Lightness Of Being in 1993. Her ethereal and quintessentially Gallic beauty has also made her one of our all-time girl crushes. Jerry HallAge: 57Why We Love Her: Thanks to her gloriously signature long blonde locks, Texan model Jerry Hall continues to be one of the most beautiful models to have ever graced the fashion industry. Claudia SchifferAge: 43Why We Love Her: German supermodel Claudia Schiffer is the blue-eyed, blonde-haired hotty of the 90s, who still manages to get our pulse-racing with her ageless beauty and killer school-run style. Rachel WeiszAge: 44Why We Love Her: There are no words to convey our love for the gorgeous Mrs. Daniel Craig. At 41, she looks just as fresh-faced and beautiful as when she first appeared on our screens in Hollywood hit The Mummy in 1999. In short, we want to be her. Raquel WelchAge: 73Why We Love Her: Because quite simply, if we look like One Million Years B.C. actress Welch when we’re 71, we’re throwing a celebration in our own honour. FACT. Christy TurlingtonAge: 45Why We Love Her: One of the original supermodels, we’ve been crushing on Christy since the late 80s. That glossy brown hair, perfect pout and creamy complexion mean Christy is still top of her game. Grace JonesAge: 66Why We Love Her: Model, actress, singer, muse, the list of Grace Jones’ achievements are many. A purveyor of glam-androgyny still well into her 60s, she can add being a GLAMOUR.com beauty idol to that now too. Uma ThurmanAge: 44Why We Love Her: Whether she dons a black-bobbed wig a la Pulp Fiction, or lets her naturally fair locks shine through, Uma is a beauty inspiration of the highest order. Diane LaneAge: 49Why We Love Her: Diane Lane is one of those rare Hollywood commodities; a child actor who successfully transitioned to bona fide film star. Indeed, she deserves a mention for here for her unfailing ability to good so look damned good on that red carpet. Catherine DeneuveAge: 70Why We Love Her: A stalwart of the European film industry, one-time muse to Yves Saint Laurent and the woman we look to when we want to channel that inimitable South of France beauty look, Catherine Deneuve is quite simply, a legend. Davina McCallAge: 46Why We Love Her: Despite Davina’s enthusiastic presenting style, there is not a line on her face to betray the fact that she’s in her 45th year. Davina, we salute you. Sarah Jessica ParkerAge: 49Why We Love Her: Because not only is she a fashion hero, she’s also a beauty one too. Always staying one step ahead of the curve (she was already onto the dip-dye hair in 2004) SJP is as fearless with her beauty and hair looks as she is with her wardrobe. And we love that.
