50 is old by many standards, and as usual, that standard is doubled-down when it comes to women. It is commonly held that women who are in their 50s are thought to be sliding over the hill to the other side of beauty, despite the fact that people are taking better care of themselves, living longer lives, simply "looking better" overall, and 50 is the new 40 when it comes to health concerns.
The following is a list of beautiful celebrities who are turning 50 in 2020, they are defying traditional standards of beauty and some of them are even more beautiful than they were in their youth...
I know, I know...Supermodels probably shouldn't be on this list, because they already defy beauty standards, in the positive direction. However, Schiffer is on this list, because just happens to be a beautiful woman who turns 50 in 2020.
It is merely coincidental that Schiffer is a Supermodel, because Supermodel or not, there are quite a few 50 year old women who walk around looking as beautiful as does she, and she is a perfect representation of those beautiful women.
Claudia Schiffer was born on August 25, 1970, and she will turn 50 years old in 2020.
Everyone knows that Mariah Carey is a pretty woman. Her beauty is sometimes buried beneath the fact that she is an epic singer and known to be a difficult prima dona with a gift for marrying well, but anyone with eyes and a connected brain would agree that Carey is a pretty girl.
Carey probably could have made it in show business on her looks alone, although that cinematic disaster of a film, Glitter (2001), might reflect a different story...
Born on March 27, 1970, Mariah Carey turns 50 in 2020, and she is just as pretty today as she was when we first met her in the late 1980s; in fact, a lot of folks would say she has gotten even prettier with age.
The public first met beautiful British actress, Rachel Weisz, in the early 1990s, but her star did not begin to burn bright with American audiences until her appearance in The Mummy (1999), opposite Brendan Fraser.
Over the years, Weisz has grown into an accomplished and well-respected actress, and she has always been a quietly smoldering beauty, whether she is being chased by mummies through Egypt or involved in a forbidden lesbian love affair opposite actress, Rachel McAdams, as was her character in Disobedience (2017).
Weisz's beauty is still on the level of "smolder" today, and many would say even moreso than when she was a youngster. Born on March 7, 1970, Rachel Weisz turns 50 in 2020.
Ripa is the cute girl, some of us first met during her time on All My Children (AMC) in the 1990s. When she left AMC and joined the TV talk show circuit, opposite Regis Philbin, she crossed over to general audiences outside of the soap opera world. Indeed, she is a smart girl, but her general appeal has always been the fact that she has an All-American, girl next door, sort of "cuteish" appeal.
She was the ultra "cute girl" when we first met her, and oddly enough, she has managed to hold on to that cute profile as a woman entering her 50s. We don't know how she does it, but she's still just as cute as she was when we first met her more than 3 decades ago. Born on October 2, 1970, Kelly Ripa will turn 50 in 2020.
Leah Remini has always come across as being somewhat brash and bold. She was that way when many of us first met her on Saved by the Bell in the early 1990s and she seemed to be typecast in this manner, because her characters carried that demeanor, especially through her breakout success in The King of Queens nearly a decade after we first met her.
One thing that is missed by many, I believe because of her brash demeanor, is the fact that Remini is a looker. She has always been somewhat of a hottie through her on-screen tenure and she seems to get hotter with age. Leah Remini was born on June 15, 1970, that will make her a sexy 50 year old in 2020.
Most members of Generation X will remember first meeting Jennifer Connelly in the film Labyrinth (1986), opposite David Bowie. While Connelly's performance in the film was well above average, it was her ethereal beauty that stayed in the minds of many people who saw the film.
With her later powerful performances in films like Requiem for a Dream (2000) and A Beautiful Mind (2001), she has emerged as an acting force with which to be reckoned, and her ethereal beauty has remained intact. Although an actress by trade, Jennifer Connelly has and always has had model-esque looks, and she seems to only look better and more refined with age.
Born on December 12, 1970, ethereally beautiful actress Jennifer Connelly will turn 50 in 2020.

They are indeed beautiful celebrities. I didn't realize that Leah Remini was close to fifty.

Indeed, Peggy; time will tell...
Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on February 26, 2020:
These are all beautiful women who are turning 50 years of age this year of 2020. I am willing to bet that they will be just as beautiful at age 60. I guess time will tell.
