Kelly Ripa—Now

But lightening her hair and boosting her skin's glow has taken her from girl next door to goddess status.

Jennifer Aniston—Then

Aniston's hair and sunny skin have always been enviable.

But adding highlights (and more sophisticated makeup) has made this star one of the most oft-emulated celebrities (at any age) in Hollywood.

Oprah Winfrey—Then

Winfrey has always been expertly coiffed.

But the longer hair takes years off her face. At fifty-something, Winfrey could pass for 10 years younger.

Jennifer Lopez—Then

But once she discovered bronzer and a flatiron, she earned accolades like People magazine's Most Beautiful Woman in the World.

But changing her hair to a flaming hue made her, well, red hot.

In the 1990s, Demi Moore was heralded for her smoky voice and rock-hard body.

But we'd like to have whatever she's having because her face seems to only get more beautiful with each passing decade.

Well, like the subtitle of this article says,
"Like fine wine, these six stars just keep getting better."
Wine needs to be kept in a dark place, not be moved, kept at a constant temperature and humidity, and various other things in the aging process to produce proper good wine.
So let's just think of plastic surgery and Botox as those factors like constant temperature and proper storage for these women.

I agree! 40 is the new 20. Women now are learning prevention and soon 50 will be the new 30 :B

I would have to agree with the previous comments. A good surgeon and a little botox does go a long way. Too bad all of us don't have that kind of access!


You have got to be kidding me!! Please! If they haven't had plastic surgery, they'd had Botox or some kind of enhancement. It's so obvious looking at their before/after photos. If this article contained photos on Meryl Streep, Susan Sarandon, Helen Mirren, then it would be a whole othe scenario. I found this very disapppointing to say the least.
