The 50 Sexiest Women Over 50

The 50 Sexiest Women Over 50

The youth-obsessed style and entertainment industries may have convinced you that women don't age well, and that you can't have serious sex appeal once you've lived half a century. To put it simply: they're wrong. Here's our list of the sexiest women over 50. You may not agree with all our picks, but read through to find out why we think they sizzle.

Ten years ago, Madonna turned 40. It was, of course, a huge affair, as Madonna was (and still is) synonymous with celebrity, and cantankerous pop culture theorists found it a staggering victory on her part that she still managed to be relevant at such an age. Everywhere, the news of her birthday was upon us. It was almost akin to the Y2K countdown.

This was 1998, before reality TV had killed the video star. VH1 made sure its viewers stayed well aware of the impending milestone by flickering "Madonna Turns 40 in _____ Hours!" across younger incarnations of the singer wriggling onscreen. Then she turned 40, and--to the shock of the entertainment world--it didn't seem to change anything.

Things have changed. In August, Madonna turned 50, and while the paparazzi managed to get plenty of shots of her entering and exiting her London party, this birthday didn't seem such a big deal.

Perhaps it's because there are now so many beautiful women who are breaking barriers in a formerly youth-obsessed industry. Sure, cynics may credit plastic surgery for the staying power of these women, but they're overlooking the fact that surgeried or not, these women are fascinating to watch. Some we've loved for decades, while others hit their strides later in life. All are alluringly mature, and all are sexy. To see the fifty lovely ladies from the top, start here.
