Life is just a day at the beach for Actress Sharon Stone, who frolics in Sardinia on a pal's yacht. If we look this good in a bikini at 51, we'll be happy!
Again, Stone shows off her fabulous curves--this time in a white Hervé Léger bandage gown. The 51-year-old actress and activist didn't even getting around to adopting her three sons until her 40s, and she still looks like she can keep up with moms half her age.

Thirty-one years after her debut on Dallas, 59 year old former Playboy model Victoria Principal looks trim and healthy while strolling on the beach in Malibu, CA, on March 26th, 2009. The Daily Mail reports that Principal is getting in shape for next year's inaugural flight of Sir Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic -- she paid £100,000 to be one of the world's first space tourists. Space mission or not, we certainly think Victoria looks out of this world.

While everyone (including Oprah herself) has been giving the 55 year-old media mogul a hard time about her weight these past few months we think no matter your size nothing is more sexy than confidence.

Even at 54, supermodel Iman still has the swan neck -- and the swan-like grace -- that once made Yves Saint Laurent declare, "My dream woman is Iman." Thirty years after she lit up the catwalks, the model and businesswoman -- shown here at a New York fundraiser last fall -- dazzles with or without her arm-candy hubby, David Bowie.

It's been more than 15 years since Michelle Pfeiffer scorched movie screens as the super-sexy Catwoman in "Batman Returns." But we're willing to bet that, at nearly 53, she can still slink into her black catsuit. Meeee-yow!

From virgin to tramp and every geisha, cowgirl and wife-of-a-South-America-dictator in between, it's close to impossible to keep up with the endless incarnations of Madonna (shown performing last December in Miami). But one thing remains unchanged: her staggering ability to grow stronger and more toned with each passing year. Another case of "Benjamin Button"? Sorry, couch potatoes. Those sinewy limbs are a testament to the 50-year-old singer's devotion to cardio, Pilates and macrobiotic eating.

Sure, she went through the sort of divorce last summer that would have sent the rest of us diving into bags of Chips Ahoy and vats of Eddy's Slow Churned Triple Chocolate. But, at 54, model, activist and milk spokeswoman Christie Brinkley is every bit as gorgeous as she was in her days as a Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover girl.
Over the last few years, Jamie Lee Curtis has made a second career out out "true thighs" -- proving that all those ultra-glam magazine images of women over 40 are the result of skillful airbrushing and the right underwear, not good genes. But, with or without her Spanx, the 50-year-old actress and author -- shown at an LA awards luncheon last year -- looks uber-chic to us.

Yes, we know she can act the hell out of 30-something (or is it 40-something?) Samantha Jones. But we think actress Kim Cattrall looks even more smashing when she acts her own age. (Sssssh! It's 52, but she won't mind if you say she looks 42.)
