Good news for the over 50s as Helen Mirren at 66 comes top in a poll conducted by L.A. Fitness for having the ‘best body’, beating Cheyl Cole, Kelly Brook and Elle MacPherson (who at 48 came second).
Flying the flag for women over 50 as we refuse to become invisible, it’s great to see that a real woman with curves who does not hide her age was voted in to the top spot.
We all applauded Helen Mirren when THAT photo of her in THAT bikini made headlines for showing that bikinis were not exclusively for the young, and that women with body confidence can wear them at any age ( I was recently on the French Riviera, where a friend’s mother wore hers proudly at 82- and looked great!). We also warmed to Helen when she confessed to having held her tummy in for the photo, as well as ensuring that she always maintains good posture.
Great to see that women of a certain age are being appreciated on their own merit. What a great role model Helen is for all women, showing that you can be appreciated as a real woman with womanly curves
Congratulations Helen . Definitely Fab after Fifty
