Beautiful Women Over 40 Comments

Ian Stuart Robertson from London England on December 01, 2017:

Dita von Teese. Queen of Burlesque.

Ian Stuart Robertson from London England on February 23, 2017:

I have just verified Susan Sarandon's age and it's true. She is a bubbly, lithe and appears happy being 70. As an adolescent the three movie stars i liked the most were all in their 40's at the time, namely Elizabeth Taylor, Anita Ekberg and Sophia Loren. Elizabeth Taylor then was 'billed' as the most beautiful woman in the world. Anita Ekberg as Anita Iceberg for her 'cool' Nordic looks. Sophia Loren is still 'going strong at 82.

Ian Stuart Robertson from London England on February 21, 2017:

I hear Susan Sarandon has turned 70 just now.

Ian Stuart Robertson from London England on February 21, 2017:

The most naturally beautiful women is Cindy Crawford to me. Meg Ryan , Daisy Fuentes have had @ least one plactic surgery as well as susan lucci

sabrebIade (author) from Pennsylvania on October 25, 2010:

Hallie Berry isn't black?

Also I guess you missed Vanessa Williams,Stacey Dash, and Janet Jackson on my other plus 40 Hubs.

Not to mention the two Hubs I did on beautiful black women.

I guess that subliminal message isn't very clear.

Legend 2005 on October 25, 2010:

I notice you didn't have any black women and there are an abundance of black women in their 50's plus that are drop dead gorgeous. I guess this subliminal message is clear smh.

Jose Nungaray on August 14, 2010:

Michelle Pfeiffer is extremely beatiful. She has an extraordinary look. She's very appealing and she has a lot of charisma. Michelle is truly one of the most beautiful women of all time. Michelle's beauty is classical and everlating.

jeremyframer from United States on August 07, 2010:

Salma Hayek and Halle Berry... Oh man, they are good looking.

sabrebIade (author) from Pennsylvania on August 07, 2010:

BRIAN SLATER on August 05, 2010:

All absolutely georgeous!!

culturespain on August 05, 2010:

Great to see some over 40s - often far sexier than younger women and should be celebrated as such!

robert hoagland on August 04, 2010:

cbris52 on August 03, 2010:

Art of legeind india on July 29, 2010:

Nice forty. all is beautiful and looking acs is best.

David 470 from Pennsylvania, United States on July 26, 2010:

Lauren Graham looks amazing for her age. I remember seeing her in gilmore girls and was astonished. She also seems 10 years younger or more.

Gabriele Livingston on July 23, 2010:

Thank you for these portraits of stunning women, I have been browsing through pages of articles claiming that a woman over 31 has reached her 'peek' and a woman over 40 is old and does not have to worry about being sexy anymore, far from that! , your photos prove how much more refined, aware of her own body and her own self and definitely sexy a woman this age can be, I like my body, more so now than when I was 20, and 31 was a very boring age to me wrapped up in being a mom transporting kids around, nah,, a real man knows how to handle and appreciate a real grown woman

Elder DeBorrah K Ogans on July 22, 2010:

Sabreblade, Nice hub! Beautiful women! Thank you for sharing, Peace & Blessings!

stacies29 from Washington DC on July 19, 2010:

Beautiful Hub and women

srinivasgg on July 03, 2010:

Wonderful hub on gorgeous women over 40. Good choice!

Joni Douglas on June 25, 2010:

Nicely done! Fabulous and forty!

aksana777 on June 24, 2010:

very beautiful woomen! I like Salma Hayek most of all. Thanks for the hub!

mbt footwear on June 18, 2010:

Not Doubt about it. The one and only Madonna. she is too sexy and stylish too. I don't think anybody as finest as Madonna in this category.

LatashaBynum on June 15, 2010:

All of these women are gorgeous and should be celebrated, not only for their beauty, but for their stregnth. When I think of women I am inspired by these are the names that cross my mind. Great Job!

Chip from Cold Mountain on June 15, 2010:

I like all your choices, but that photo of Elle doesn't do her justice.

Arthur Windermere on June 15, 2010:

Cindy Crawford, Salma Hayek, etc--these women don't FEEL over 40. 40 is the new 30 in Hollywood. You could have easily made this hub about women over 50. I have a weakness for older women. I'd sacrifice a goat on the altar of Baal for a night with Kim Basinger. Alright, I'd better get out of here before I reveal too much.

Good work! Byeee

John B Badd from Saint Louis, MO on June 14, 2010:

Beautiful women Saber. Good Hub.

sabrebIade (author) from Pennsylvania on June 14, 2010:

Thanks to everyone that took the time to stop by.

Still settling in here, but hopefully I'll me able to get into a groove with the Hubs soon.

And Mike, I may not be finished with this series yet...LOL

Phillyfreeze69 on June 14, 2010:

Fabulous and Forty...these women are like fine wine and cheeses, and all the other things that mellows with age. Splendid selection of beautiful women over 40.

Mike Lickteig from Lawrence KS USA on June 14, 2010:

Voted up and--what else? Beautiful. I always thought Susan Sarandon was beautiful, and who doesn't like Meg Ryan at any age? Daisy Fuentes is very sexy to me because she is not too thin. Not on your list, the geek in me is attracted to Gillian Anderson of X-Files fame. I just thought she continued to become more beautiful with age.

Nice article, Sabre, and nice to see you back.


grillrepair from florida on June 14, 2010:

great hub -- i'm getting close to forty and i don't like it one bit. it is good to see some of us older folks looking good!

dreamreachout on June 14, 2010:

All beautiful ladies indeed and they are getting more beautiful with age!!

Guillermo Ramon from Miami on June 14, 2010:

Gorgeous women for any age. However, we are talking VERY high maintenance girls!

Megavitamin on June 13, 2010:

Great list! I think Cindy Crawford is the definition of beauty, and she looks exactly the same as she did 20 years ago.
