These gorgeous men and women prove that if you own a swimsuit and have a body – voila! You have a beach body! It has little to do with your looks, it’s all about self-love.
The beautiful Heather Graham is known for playing traditionally promiscuous roles. But Graham is a self-professed serial monogamist in real life. Who says she must be crazy-wild to set hearts ablaze? Take this picture, for instance.
She's both smoking-hot and as cool as a cat in her animal-print bikini. Now-and-then pictures seem a moot concept because we can’t spot any differences over the years, can you? The actor is over 50 and hasn’t aged a day!
Actress Kate Hudson considers herself ageless. We have no arguments there! Hudson is ready for summer, but is summer prepared for her? She sizzles in this striped halter neck bikini.
Plus, those retro sunglasses are giving us life! Hudson is at her girly best and isn't afraid to own it. Age is barely a consideration and nothing but a number for this mother of three who is in her 40s. We forgive you for thinking she might be the one still in school.
Muse to fashion designers and directors alike, Charlize Theron’s appeal is enduring. The talented actor rose to fame in the ‘90s with films like “Cider House Rules” (1999) and “The Devil’s Advocate” (1997).
Since then, she’s become one of Hollywood’s biggest stars. But downtime Theron is as glamorous as the one on the red carpet. It’s hard to make jumping off a boat look like ballet, but Theron does. The 40-something star in a bikini is utter perfection. She only gets better with time.
Everyone’s favorite working girl is in her 60s now! Are we feeling old yet? As for Melanie Griffith, she doesn’t look or act it – in the least. She continues to wow her fans, as seen in this Instagram post.
Are the 60s the new 20s? We don’t know how she does it! From her successful career to looking fantastic in a sexy orange bikini, Griffith works hard for all of it. She continues to impress long after her supposed prime. She doesn’t adhere to societal benchmarks, she just goes ahead and creates new ones.
Kristen Bell isn’t just enjoying summer, she’s loving every minute of it. It’s inconceivable that the "Veronica Mars" actor is in her 40s today. Bell’s youthful, radiant glow hasn’t dimmed for over a decade since the show first aired.
As she lounges about, sunning herself in a beautiful blue and white swimsuit, Bell feels like a summer song. She’s known for leading an extremely healthy lifestyle and swears by a vegetarian diet.
Kourtney Kardashian Barker is as stunning now as she was in her 20s. One hit reality show, family business, and plenty of very public drama later, she hasn’t aged one bit. The petite star is a veritable earth goddess in her sexy bikini. Whether it’s due to genetics, a new man, or a little help from surgery, she’s practically glowing. Not an ounce of fat on her body too!
It’s hard to believe she’s in her 40s, a mother, and the oldest of the Kardashian sisters. There’s a fire burning within her, and nobody can put it out.
A quick glance at Elizabeth Hurley's pictures, and you might think the actor is in her 30s. Not older than 40, for sure? But anyone following her career since Austin Powers knows that the star is in her late 50s! You read right.
It’s hard to keep your eyes off Hurley on any day. Spot her by the beach in a bikini during the Platinum Jubilee, and everything comes to a standstill. All hail Queen Hurley, we say! Her Instagram post is quintessentially her – vibrant and sexy with that signature oomph her fans know and love.
Naomi Watts could easily pass for a woman in her 30s. The Australian actor is famous for her nuanced performances and offbeat roles. She’s also known in Hollywood circles for her seemingly age-defying skin.
Watts, in her 50s, looks better than ever! Like the ocean she pays tribute to in her post, Watts is timeless and the picture — life-sustaining! She's perfection in a simple bikini and sun hat. There's no disputing that the actor has aged beautifully. Plus, she seems perfectly content and at home by the sea. #goals
Garcelle Beauvais is a multi-talented star. She’s an actor best known for her role in the indie film “A Girl Like Grace” (2015). She’s also a TV host and former model. The Haitian beauty was on People Magazine’s 2014 list of 50 Most Beautiful, but naturally! Years on and now in her 50s, she continues to defy time and age.
Beauvais’ long hair is a proud representation of her Haitian heritage. She looks dynamite in a breezy and earthy swimsuit — not unlike the actor herself.
That Gisele Bündchen is in her 40s might be surprising to many people. It feels like it was only yesterday when the supermodel blazed her way into the fashion scene. She’s still every bit the Brazilian bombshell we knew in the ‘90s.
We love the shimmery, bronzed glow aesthetic – perfectly complementing her bikini’s earthy hues. A lot of her glow seems to be radiating from within. As for her bikini body, words seem inadequate. Falling at her feet might suffice instead.
We’ve always maintained that Eva Mendes is ageless but this one is for those who need photographic evidence. Although Mendes is now in her 40s and on an acting break, she’s hard at work on her fashion line. Looking fabulous, on the other hand – that bit is effortless!
Mendes almost rivals the sunlight in Greece. She’s still on top of her game in a bright and breezy summer ensemble. There’s something about the Cuban actor. She’s got that “it” factor that makes everyone sit up and pay attention.
Uma Thurman is a force, whether clad in a bloody jumpsuit or a glamorous evening gown. The world remembers Thurman for her iconic, pulpy roles in Quentin Tarantino’s films. But she’s other-worldly in real life, too. Is that a gorgeous Thurman taking a dip in the waters in a green one-piece?
Or a still from an epic fantasy film? The lines between reality and art become increasingly blurry. She manages to blend in and own the landscape at the same time, this stealthy jungle queen. Thurman, in her 50s, is a fine lesson in aging gracefully.
Actor Jessica Biel rose to fame after her roles in “The Rules of Attraction,” “Candy,” and “The Illusionist.” As she juggles her life as a mother of two, a doting wife, and a successful career – the 40-something Biel always finds time to unwind. Judging by this photo, she knows how to do it exceedingly well.! The fit and fabulous Biel wearing a layered swimsuit is no illusion!
The sheer glee and energy are contagious. She’s opened up in the past about her insecurities with her body. But she seems to have moved past them into a healing journey of resplendent self-love.
Oh, look! It’s Ari Gold taking a much-needed break from being — well, himself! Unlike his iconic character on “Entourage,” Jeremy Piven seems to be going with the flow and looks amazing doing it.
Piven is all kinds of summertime fine and chill. It’s everything we wish life in our 50s could be – pool time, summer shorts, and a body that pulls it off. Jeremy Piven could easily pass off for someone in his 30s.
Mary J. Blige
Mary J. Blige looks hot and bothered in the heat, but excuse us while we focus on more important things. To start, the singer, who’s in her 50s, confidently owns her space. It’s in the way she carries herself in that hot bikini. Also, a moment of awed silence for how her skin shimmers in the Miami sun.
What’s with the squint, however? You say squint. We say the ultimate stare-down. How dare the sun shine brighter? Mary J. Blige is the undisputed queen wherever she goes. You best know your place.
Looking beautiful is hardly an impossible mission for Michelle Monaghan. The actor, who’s in her 40s, is luminous in a vibrant beach ensemble. We can’t decide what we love the most — her enviable frame, the gorgeous hat, or the chic bikini.
The "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" Star enjoys her day at the beach while staying sun-safe. Like the famous song lyrics, Monaghan knows that if she could offer one tip for the future – sunscreen would be it!
Kelly Bensimon is best known as a former Real Housewife of New York and model. Those who’ve followed her life and career know she found incredible success as a real estate agent. Fun fact — Bensimon also wrote a book about bikinis!
So, it’s hardly surprising to see the 50-something star looking fine in a hot pink bikini at the beach. She’s got that perennial beach glow and tan we absolutely love. What’s more, the strut and confidence are next-level!
Pardon us, but we’re trying to avoid shamelessly staring! Kate Beckinsale doesn’t seem to be aging. For the record, she was born in 1973. Whether she’s burning up the red carpet or stepping out on a hot date – Beckinsale proves over and over that age is just a number.
The leggy, toned lass is looking posh and perfect with her dogs at the beach. The actor has kept an intense fitness regimen since her time in “Underworld” (2003) and “Van Helsing” (2004). The results show!
Idris Elba is a seriously cool dude. There are so many reasons to love the handsome actor. He acts, directs, raps, and even DJs! Elba is a doting husband and father. Here, Elba makes hearts stop even while fully clothed on the beach.
An understated t-shirt, track bottoms, and flip-flops and the man still looks incredible. No suitably smoldering poses for the Gram either, Elba only needs to stand and smile – while his beautiful wife (and the world) looks on lovingly.
Cuba Gooding Jr.
Actor Cuba Gooding Jr is happy as a clam at a beach in Miami. Anyone in doubt needs to check out those shorts. Oh, and that smile! The Oscar-winning actor is best known for playing Rod Tidwell in “Jerry Maguire” (1996).
Although his career saw a series of hits and misses after the film, Gooding seems to have taken it in his stride. At least, it hasn’t impacted how the star is bringing in his 50s – sun-kissed, cheerful, and every bit as youthful.
Is it just us, or does Sofia Vergara only become better with time? She’s so stunning in her 50s, it’s almost criminal! Very few people on the planet can nail disparate print combinations.
On Vergara? It looks like a second skin as if the swimsuit were an extension of her. Vergara's beach look is as bold, colorful, and vibrant as she is. The sea and sand in the background almost pale in comparison, don't you think?
We don’t know anyone on the planet who can pull off a baby sun hat and swimming trunks! But Taika Waititi makes us believe. Swimming trunks – check. Sun hat (and it can be whatever he pleases) – check!
There’s a method and sheer brilliance to filmmaker Taika Waititi’s madness. He can see through the fog of “crazy” and create magic while the rest of us flounder. His creative methods have no limits and seemingly extend to fun fashion choices in his 40s.
We’re sorry, but who’s calling whom a Desperate Housewife now? One look at Eva Longoria, and you know she’s anything but! Once a sexy siren, always a sexy siren. Longoria makes phrases like “the wrong side of 40s” defunct.
We can’t fault this Instagram post, can you? She’s gorgeous! The beautiful tan, beach hair, pastel blue bikini, her curves — absolute magic! The only thing left to do now is to bask in her glow.
The stunning Jenna Dewan looks the same as she first did when we fell in love with her on “Step Up” (2006). The star sits radiant and peaceful against the backdrop of spectacular ocean views.
Her form and skin are flawless! Dewan is known for prioritizing holistic health and well-being, which is no mean feat when you have a busy career, two children, and a partner. But the actor is a passionate advocate of self-care nonetheless. Rocking a swimsuit is one of the many ways to do it.
Excuse us, but can you imagine a list of forever young stars without Reese Witherspoon? How has she not aged at all since we first fell in love with her in “Legally Blonde” (2001)? Just so you know, she already passed the age of 40 a while ago.
Yet, Witherspoon is timeless, much like her films and shows. She looks positively giddy with schoolgirl excitement here in her new swimsuit. Her hair is on point, and her skin looks fantastic – zero dark spots or signs of aging! She’s summer-ready, for sure!
Over three decades ago, the world collectively fell in love with Julia Roberts in “Pretty Woman.” The rest of us have probably aged since then, but Roberts? She makes being in your 50s look like the new 30. Julia Roberts is as gorgeous as ever.
Few people can look amazing in a basic denim shorts and shirt ensemble, but Roberts is one of them! Her shine and sparkle haven’t dimmed in the least. It’s as if the star has managed to defy physiological decline altogether.
Sharon Stone looks mighty fine in her roaring 60s! The "Basic Instinct" star glows in a sunny yellow bikini, seemingly without a care. Her short, boyish haircut and goofy grin are everything! Older women, especially ones in bright bikinis, are often at the receiving end of internet hate. Stone couldn't give two hoots!
And we love her for it. The mother of three is a picture of confidence and beauty. She’s the undisputed Hollywood diva, thoroughly enjoying her hard-won success and fame.
Although he’s better known as Kristin Bell’s better half, Dax Shepard is a star in his own right. Shepard is a comedian, actor, filmmaker, and podcast host of the wildly popular podcast “Armchair Expert.”
Oh, and if you haven’t noticed, he’s a dreamboat! He makes being in your 40s seem aspirational! It seems like beast mode comes naturally to him, particularly here. Shepard looks ripped, raw, and ready to fight sea monsters. The fierce tattoo with a bandage partially over it only adds to the testosterone levels.
There are many reasons to love Luke Evans. But which version of him do you like the best? Luke Evans as the alpha male Gaston in “Beauty and the Beast?” Evans as the soulful Bard in “The Hobbit?” Or Luke Evans in shorts, turning up the heat at a beach in Miami? The answer is all versions – every one of them!
The devastatingly handsome Welsh actor makes us look forward to the 40s and a future that suddenly doesn’t seem so scary.
As one of the OG 90’s supermodels, Helena Christensen owns any look – from fabulous couture to chic athleisure. She still turns heads wherever she goes, as evidenced here.
Christensen elevates a basic black swimsuit to high fashion goals. Looking fab in a swimsuit comes easy when adventure is your way of life. It certainly is for Christensen, whose Insta post is all about the outdoor fun she's up to. The model is aging like fine wine, and if that’s what being in your 50s can look like – sign us up!
Claudia Schiffer’s beauty is eternal. She will always be the timeless blonde bombshell tearing up runways in the 80s and 90s. The former supermodel is still as magnificent in a floral-print bikini and patterned sarong.
Schiffer is on holiday and, as always, looks incredible. She’s happy as a clam collecting shells. Lounging on the sand never looked more fabulous. Also, her abs at age 50+ are way better than most 20-year-olds. We love these low-key but ultra-glamorous photos. Once a supermodel, always a supermodel. She can’t help it.
Has it really been over 15 years since we swooned over Adrian Grenier in “The Devil Wears Prada” (2006)? Forgive us for the confusion, but the actor looks exactly the same! And it seems he’s picked up some new, age-defying skills along the way.
Grenier, in his 40s, makes ocean swimming, rock climbing, and jumping into the water look like child’s play! He’s still got it! Forever young, bold, and charming.
Christie Brinkley’s modeling days for Sports Illustrated may be over but the star could still kill it as a cover girl. Brinkley, in her straw hat and light wrap, channels sexy bohemian vibes. If only we could look half as gorgeous in a black bikini in our 50s.
During her heyday, Brinkley symbolized an era of celebrity models who put swimsuit fashion on the map. Decades later, she shows us that you can’t keep a stunning woman and her swimwear down!
Thandiwe Newton (born 1972) may be working up the nerve to roll around bare-body in the snow -but she looks good doing it! She is the snow angel everyone needs! She’s sensational in a black bikini.
Those understated accessories beautifully complete the look. Anyone who can brave the snow to do this is an absolute legend in our book. It makes you wonder. Did she only play a sentient android in Westworld, or might she actually be one?! Newton’s no-reservations approach makes her a winner of not only awards but life.
Michelle Rodriguez proves she’s too fast and too furious for banal concepts like aging. If you must know, the "Resident Evil" actor is in her 40s. And goodness, she looks fine! Rodriguez is the picture of youth and energy in a white bikini.
Her gorgeous tan and figure are incredible enough, but would you look at the smile, seemingly powering the boat? Perhaps even the sea and the turning of the world’s axis? Rodriguez is an absolute goddess!
Troublesome knees, controversy, and other injuries notwithstanding – Serena Williams rises above. Both a tennis and fashion inspiration, Williams (now in her 40s) lives large. She stuns in a hot pink swim piece, standing proud and strong like an Amazonian warrior.
Little Alexis and her dolly keep mama company in matching grins and swimsuits. Everything about this post personifies girl power and femininity — a force that is, at once, gentle, joyful, and fierce.
We could watch Catherine Zeta-Jones hula hoop all day, although actually practicing might get us closer to looking as stunning as she does. Hula hooping in a swimsuit in our 50s is the new goal!
The Welsh star looks dynamite in a fun striped bikini for this unexpectedly hilarious video. Zeta-Jones will always be one of Hollywood’s most iconic stars. She appeared in only a few films but embodied the roles so well that she made a permanent impact.
Gabrielle Union-Wade first made a splash in hit teen movies like “10 Things I Hate About You” (1999). The actor doesn’t look a day above 25 even though she’s obviously way over that age today!
Wade is positively glowing here! The off-white bikini and hat highlight her flawless skin and physique. For all you know, she could be unwinding at the beach after crushing a cheerleader routine on the set of “Bring It On” (2000).
If you were wondering how a Golden-Globe winner unwinds — Chloë Sevigny shows us how it’s done! That Sevigny is an exceptional actor and director is well-known. She excels in television, theater, and film. Evidently, the star is equally fabulous off-screen. The 40-something Sevigny sizzles and shimmies in a black bikini.
She appears to be having a fantastic time with her close friend, Natasha Lyonne. Sevigny elevates the art of applying sunscreen at the beach, like everything else she does.
Ryan Phillippe is in his 40s but doesn’t look anywhere near his age. It seems like the actor drinks from the fountain of youth. So much, so that people often mistake the "Shooter" star for his teenage daughter’s brother. Who can blame them? Phillippe’s incredible physique, skin, and energy don't really seem to match his age.
Some of it is genetics, but it’s mostly hard work and dedication over 20 years. For Phillippe, exercise is a mental and physical release, allowing him to channel his energy positively.
Taraji P. Henson
Taraji P. Henson is as fierce off-screen as the characters she portrays. She’s a multi-talented, award-winning actor who took on Hollywood despite numerous odds. The "Empire" star is also the definition of ageless beauty.
We love this Instagram post because it is everything she stands for – a strong, successful woman in her 50s who dresses up and shows up! And it can be in anything she well pleases. Her shimmery one-piece shines almost as bright as she does. Let’s not forget those color-coordinated nails, the dumbbell, and the fabulous hair!
Cindy Crawford is a vision in this black one-piece swimsuit! Bikinis are excellent, but a sexy one-piece always has our hearts. And Cindy Crawford? She rocks whatever she wears. Would you look at her here? The iconic supermodel is effortless and in her element. Plus, we’re getting goddess vibes beyond rocking a bikini bod!
Crawford isn’t clinging to some notion of what she used to be in her 20s or 30s. She exudes the confidence that comes from having been there, done that, and knowing you have even more to offer.
On top of being a critically-acclaimed actor, Jeff Goldblum rates tattoos and is a voracious Tweet reader. Best known for his roles in “The Fly” (1987), “The Grand Budapest Hotel” (2014), and the Jurassic Park franchise, Goldblum has worked with some of the biggest names in Hollywood.
Goldblum's energy and humor are legendary, some of which are on display here. We’ll have what he’s having, please! This is the only way to be approaching your 70s — tanned, fit, and beautiful at the beach.
Spotted in Palma de Mallorca in Spain, our favorite Professor is enjoying his holidays at the beach! Over the years, the "Money Heist" star has flipped the script on traditional notions of "hot" men.
The world has Morte to thank for elevating the intelligent, quiet, and brooding man on screen. A shirtless Morte on vacation is a sight for sore eyes, unlike his character who’s always working very hard. Still, we can’t help but notice that the 40-something star is on the phone. Please, let it be another heist!
Ethan Hawke is the ultimate Renaissance Man, and we refuse to heed any other opinion on the matter. First, he’s aged like fine wine. Check out the bits of salt and pepper in that immaculate beard. Hawke is the picture of chill while strolling on the beach. The four-time Academy Award winner has been busy too.
Besides his many acting projects, he continues dreaming up new passion projects. Hawke redefines what life in your 50s should be – anything you want it to be, really!
She didn’t know it back then, but Jennifer Garner manifested the good vibes from “13 Going on 30” into life. She’s certainly living the theme well into her big 5-0s! The years have been kind to the actress, who continues to look more beautiful each year. Garner is dewy and fresh in a muted grey swimsuit.
The star always looks radiant on the red carpet, but we’re partial to her beach glow. Rumor has it that Garner’s pictures never involve photoshop and other such trickery. Did we mention she’s a mother of three and always on the go?
Demi Moore has been around in Hollywood since the ‘80s, but can anyone tell?! We certainly can’t. The "Ghost" star hasn’t aged a day! If you must know, she was born in 1962. So, that would make her an ageless goddess.
Moore is flawless. Those gorgeous long tresses breathe life into an otherwise dull existence. Not to forget the chic black bikini that accentuates every enviable part of her leggy, athletic frame. She’s also got a smoldering, nerdy look going with those glasses. Where can we sign up for class, professor?
Nicole Kidman dazzles in musicals, thrillers, dramas, and comedies. She makes anything look elegant. A case in point is this minimal cardigan and button-down shirt ensemble that looks oh-so-classy on her lithe frame. Everything about this look is classic Kidman – timeless and feminine.
Who says you need a bikini to rock a beach look? The 1967-born actor truly belongs in the golden age of glamour and sophistication. She refuses to change how she looks based on trends or fads. Come what may, Kidman keeps things classy.
Anyone who thinks older women are “done” hasn’t met Brooke Shields. Once intensely objectified as a young star on “Blue Lagoon” (1980) and on the controversial “Pretty Baby” (1978), today Shields represents the fierce, fabulous tribe of women thriving in their 50s.
Her beach look in an orange bikini shows off her tan and incredible body. Shields stands like a regal sea goddess surveying her kingdom. She has famously credited her daughters for inspiring her to get into a bikini again.
When you see Vera Wang in a classy white swimsuit, only one question immediately comes to mind. Is the designer really in her 70s?! She’s usually working hard as the creative force behind every A-lister’s wedding dress. Whenever she’s off-duty, Wang brings her brand of sexiness and works it!
Her legs seem to go on for miles, while her hair and skin are flawless. She must work out all day, every day to get that incredibly toned frame. Wang slaying it is a befitting answer to the indiscriminate ageism in the fashion and entertainment industry.
Don’t be fooled by the abs she’s got – Jlo is over 50 years old! She’s still Jenny from the block in more ways than one. We’re obsessed with this sexy white swimsuit that shows off her legendary curves in style. This quiet selfie oozes confidence. The kind that says, 'I work hard and celebrate myself because I’ve earned it!'
JLo is fiercer and stronger than ever. She looks fantastic, undoubtedly. But we're struck by how she carries herself. Her beauty comes tinged with rawness and edge. She keeps things real.
Bethenny Frankel is no stranger to public love and scrutiny. She was one of the most popular contestants on “The Real Housewives of New York City.” Since then, Frankel has come into her own — a successful entrepreneur, author, wife, and hot momma!
She looks amazingly toned in a sophisticated dark green one-piece from her own swimwear line. Would anyone believe this stunner is over 50? Frankel’s personal mission to make women feel comfortable in their skin is well-known. She’s authored books on the subject and even launched a company around it.
Adriana Lima once shared that she wants to live forever. Judging by her Instagram feed, she might just be light years ahead of the aging process! Lima is as lean, fit, and beautiful today in her 40s.
She’s timeless in a crop top and denim shorts. Everything about this Instagram post represents freedom. Freedom from the shackles of age, boundaries, or rules. The world might be better off if it adopted her approach to life.
Mention Carmen Electra, and the world collectively visualizes her running in slow motion on the beach. The actor might have single-handedly driven the stratospheric ratings for “Baywatch” at one point. Decades on, she’s maintained her youthful looks and energy.
It’s hard to believe this is a recent picture since the star is now in her 50s! The former model is still working her curves in a hot swimsuit. The fun prints, along with the pink sunglasses, bring it home!
From finding fame on the soap opera “All My Children” (1970) to her many Emmy nominations, Susan Lucci is a small screen icon. She's as gorgeous as ever and in her late 70s!
Lucci looks ravishing in an orange swimsuit and sarong, casually sipping some Pina Colada. Fans can’t get over how youthful she looks. She’s one of those stars always in the spotlight for her seemingly age-defying ways. Whether it's because of good genes, skincare, or Botox (as some claim) – who cares? Susan Lucci is forever beautiful.
Jada Pinkett Smith
There’s something about Jada Pinkett Smith, particularly in this image. She’s positively glowing and ethereal. Perhaps it’s the warm glow from her skin or the cool-blue bikini, but we’re half-healed just looking.
In this picture, the star is owning her 50s! Her stunning transformation over the years shows that the best times are always ahead of us. Mother of two, a celebrity in her own right, and one-half of Hollywood’s most high-profile power couple, the divine Jada isn’t your average hot celeb. She’s made of fierce yet gentle resilience.
Tom Brady defies age at every turn. When he was 39, the quarterback played one of the best games of his career for the New England Patriots. A monumental feat for someone supposedly past his prime. (Most football legends are already retired by that age). Fast forward to today, and Brady is in his 40s.
Whether fully clothed or shirtless, he’s in fantastic shape, it's plain to see. The man doesn’t have an ounce of fat on his body.
What’s the secret behind Salma Hayek’s agelessness? It isn’t botox, hair dyes, or fancy diets. She maintains that the secrets are family, the love of a good man, and growing old gracefully. It probably explains her beautiful, peaceful glow in this image, besides rocking that electric-blue swimsuit.
She's seen the other side of 50, and she is still one of the most stunning Hollywood celebrities, bar none! She shines so brightly because the light is inside her.
Alyssa Milano (born 1972) isn’t afraid to keep things real about aging. She’s known to be brutally honest about what it takes to stay youthful – diet, fitness, and Botox et al. You do you, girl!
Nobody’s complaining because she looks like a picture! The "Charmed" actor works her beautiful black swimsuit like nobody’s business – even if it’s to take an agonizingly cold plunge. Beauty takes time and effort, after all. The results are evident and worth it!
Greatness, thy name is Tony Parker — an understatement for anyone who follows the NBA. Parker was instrumental in scripting history for the San Antonio Spurs. The beloved four-time NBA champ and finals MVP may have retired, but that doesn’t seem to slow him down.
Parker, now in his 40s, enjoys a well-deserved retirement. He looks fantastic and is so in love with tennis star Alize Lim. Don’t miss the couple’s matching beach wear as they lounge about on a yacht. Adorable!
Matthew McConaughey, the veritable Texas gentleman is more than alright, alright, alright! The Academy-award-winning, gif-worthy man can seemingly do everything — like flying sideways in red swimming trunks. Boy, does the 50-something actor look good!
Who in their right mind would look at this image and think, "that’s great, but the dude’s old"? The energy, the athletic abilities, and that body – he does it better than most, and you can’t deny it.
Rob Lowe was only 15 when he first started appearing on TV shows. Just for perspective, it was a time when space shuttles were still a dream and Jimmy Carter was President of the United States. From a child actor to his iconic role in “Parks and Recreation” (2009), Lowe’s stellar transformation has been incredible to watch.
Among his many avatars, beach bum Lowe is particularly fetching. He's working the slouchy shorts, a hint of silver hair, and a gorgeous tan! All of it while approaching his 60s to boot.
The word 'simple' doesn’t come close to describing Nicole Richie’s life. She’s a fashion designer, former reality TV star, author, socialite, and philanthropist. By the looks of it, Richie is living her best island life with a bunch of people she loves. Fans can’t get over how fit and fabulous she looks.
Richie — wearing a bandana, beads, and bikini — looks like a young hippie off to discover the world. Nobody would believe she’s a 40-something mother of two.
It isn’t an exaggeration to say that Shakira looks exactly the same decades after she took over the world with her single, “Whenever Wherever.” The Colombian songstress still has the same glowing skin, insane abs, and long wavy hair even in her 40s. The secret? Minimalism and keeping things simple.
Ask her for beauty recommendations, and she’ll probably ask you to wear sunscreen and a smile. It’s evidently working for her. Look how she shines in a simple but sexy lavender bathing suit!
Oscar-winning actor Halle Berry epitomizes timeless beauty. Berry looks divine in a pink and green bikini. She wears a nice tee on top that says, “Kind people are my kinda people.” Bringing the message home is a pair of funky heart-shaped sunglasses we can’t get enough of.
Among her many takes on fashion, the star’s views on bikini-wearing are a crowd-pleaser. She once said that if it involves a bikini, her answer is always, “yes please!” And why wouldn’t it be? When people say bikini goals, they’re probably thinking of Halle Berry.
Sarah Michelle Gellar
Sarah Michelle Gellar is still killing it, decades after slaying vampires as the fierce Buffy. The star flaunts her age-defying skin and figure in a sexy black bikini. Few people in their 40s can work a beach look like Gellar.
We half expect her to go demon hunting in a swimsuit. Why? Because she can. Buffy or no Buffy, Gellar still looks as powerful. She's a representative for strong, petite women everywhere.
Gordon Ramsay trades his chef uniform for summery blue shorts, and the internet can’t get enough. The shirtless celebrity chef and his son appear to be spending quality family time in the Maldives. Ramsay isn’t in the kitchen but sends temperatures soaring regardless.
For someone in his 50s, who spends every waking moment around food, his impeccable frame is to die for! The hunky, very tall Ramsay commands attention. We think it’s time the world established brand new dad bod goals!
Heidi Klum in a spicy pink bikini proves she’s still on top of her modeling game! She’s having a hot girl summer and turning up the heat by several notches. The former "Project Runway" host shows off her tanned, incredibly fit frame while relaxing on a boat.
She appears to be swaying as sunlight plays with her gorgeous blonde tresses. Who would believe she’s a mother of four and in her 50s? Klum is forever stunning — neither age nor time can take that away.
Looking fantastic in a bikini is second nature to Alessandra Ambrosio. The Victoria's Secret model is an icon in the fashion industry, having blazed catwalks for the best designer and fashion labels in the world.
She was also one of the first spokespersons for Victoria's Secret PINK line. So, of course, Ambrosio looks fittingly divine in a neon yellow-orange bikini at the beach – like a nymph emerging from her natural habitat. But many people don't realize that the Brazilian bombshell is in her fabulous 40s.
Brian Austin Green
It’s been a minute since Brian Austin Green graced the glitzy streets of Beverly Hills 90210. He may have changed his address, but the actor forever belongs to that ‘90s dreamscape.

They’ve supposedly had their fun, you see. Seymour and others like her defy bizarre conventions. Anyone can and should wear swimsuits. Even better if it’s a bright, eye-catching shade of pink!
Gwyneth Paltrow (born 1972) is a woman of many talents. Apart from being a successful, critically-acclaimed actor, she’s also the founder of Goop and a swimwear model! It’s why she looks so effortlessly stunning in a bikini. The sun-kissed Paltrow seems one with the waves and blue skies.

Adam Levine is in his 40s, but the singer doesn’t look it. Somehow, he looks younger now than in 2002, when his band Maroon 5 released their first album. Levine sang about love taking a toll on him, but age? Age definitely hasn’t! A shirtless, very fit Levine in a warrior pose is sheer poetry.
A work of art, for sure. The black and white aesthetic works beautifully to bring out Levine's zen side that fans rarely get to see.
Sun’s out, shirts off for the dashing David Beckham, as he enjoys that most elusive of things – clear skies in Great Britain. The former Manchester United star and LA Galaxy midfielder proves he’s ageless.

Neve Campbell was ubiquitous in the lives of anyone who grew up in the ‘90s and early ‘00s.
