2011 June 29

“Julianne Moore is not shy about much, whether it is her body, age or kissing other women,” according to The New York Daily News. The actress, who just turned fifty, posed nude for a racy Bulgari ad that ran last year. When asked about it, she joked, “I like to call myself the hundred-year-old model.” Last November, she posed in a Hervé Léger by Max Azria cutout one-piece bathing suit for Allure. Upon finding out she’d be posing in swimwear, she joked with creative director Paul Cavaco, “Something with a skirt, I hope.” The above photo was snapped in Los Angeles in June, 2009.

Famously svelte FOF actress Goldie Hawn was spotted on a Malibu beach with her daughter Kate Hudson, son Oliver Hudson and grandson Ryder, according to PopSugar. At 65, she may opt for more covered up swimwear but that wasn’t always the case. At the age of thirty-nine, Hawn posed for the cover of Playboy’s January 1985 issue in a giant martini glass wearing nothing but a white collar shirt, a loosened black tie, and a pair of red stilettos. It became one of their highest selling issues although according to Starpulse it sparked “a ridiculous controversy…over whether a woman going-on 40 could still be a sex-symbol.”

FOF Jerry Hall was discovered as a model in her teens, sunbathing on a Saint Tropez beach. Over three decades later, Jerry was again spotted catching rays in the South of France (see above photograph). This time though, she’s 54 and the mother of four. Still, “she was turning heads as she walked along the beach,” an onlooker said. That was not the case a few years back, when according to The Daily Mail, two unflattering bathing suit photos of Jerry surfaced. First, there was the “most unfortunate shot of her way back in 2001 showing off a crop of dimples as she stood in the water in a black one-piece.” Then, there was a photo of her “with a smattering of cellulite on her thighs as she boarded a boat” in 2009 — “blips in her perfect bikini record.”

FOF Sharon Stone is notoriously shameless about baring it all. In 1992 she shocked audiences as a sexy killer in the erotic thriller Basic Instinct. “The beautiful blonde…revealed her fabulous physique to the audience—leaving NOTHING to the imagination!” according to Radar online. To coincide with the 1990 release of Total Recall, she posed nude for Playboy showing off the . . . muscles she developed in preparation for the movie. In 1999, she was rated among the 25 sexiest stars of the century by Playboy. More recently, the 53-year-old actress was spotted and photographed on vacation in Sardinia, Italy, once again flaunting her figure.

When FOF actress Helen Mirren was photographed wearing a red bikini in summer 2008, the media went wild. “Helen Mirren the bikini queen reigns supreme at 63″ was a headline in the The Daily Mail. The Huffington Post called the Oscar-winning actress a “bathing bikini beauty.” Helen, herself, couldn’t even believe it. ‘The truth is,” she said, “I don’t really look that good,” reported The Daily Mail. “I look like a woman in her 60s. I’ve always looked awful in a bikini, even when I was younger.”

    Miren is total lipo, there is no fat on her legs, but when you have that much money, what the hell

  • shebren says:

    I’m sorry, because I suppose these celebrities deserve to have some privacy in their swimsuits. However, if they even think they are going to be photographed, then keep those bodies (even trim ones) out of the unflattering teeny bikinis. The un-tanned parts overwhelm the trimness of some and others overhang parts that shouldn’t be seen at this age.

  • Fashionable 60s says:

    Even if one is confident about her body, when one is over 55, choosing the right bathing suit is tricky when going to the public beach. On your own private beach, you can go naked if you want. Nigella Lawson should just avoid going to the beach if she is allergic to the sun instead of wearing that hideous burkini. Why she bothered covered up in the ridiculous get up is beyond many of us. Angelica Houston should not be seen wearing this particular bikini because she looks unattractive in it, especially if there are so many bathing suits available out there that are far more complimentary to her body type for her to choose. The best for over 50 and 60, is Helen Mirren and she is the oldest of the group of women. She looks absolutely great and sexy in her chosen two piece bathing suit. I
    wish I have her body.

  • Jason says:

    you site is so cool and sweet,i love it ,it’s really helped me a lot thank for the info,i love you..

  • Janie says:

    These are brave women to be swimming in bikinis. Fair complected people do not tan, but we like to swim anyway. Who says you have to tan until your skin looks like leather to enjoy swimming?

  • Mick says:

    Helen Mirren looks GREAT in her 2-piece – gorgeous curves. Julianne Moore looks like she has on white powder: her skin has never seen the sunshine or the light in this photo simply rots… As for Janice Dickinson, You Go Girl! A little “paint and body work” looks good on everyone; you would spiff up a CAR that was 50+ years old, why not yourself? I concur with her philosoply entirely – lifted breasts and lipo’ed tummies look oh-so-much better than sag and bag! It’s like going without any makeup – you look so much better with it than without!!

  • maxie says:

    If you have the body for a bikini – then flaunt it. Helen Mirren looks fabulous.

  • Norma Byrd says:

    Gosh, I don’t mean to be age chauvanistic but most ladies over 25 shouldn’t wear bininis! I mean much of what we end up with should be judiciously covered—that’s just a fact of life. Many of the women pictured are either too skinny or too fat to be spilling that much onto the scenery. Helen Mirren is the only exception. OMG! If I looked like that I’d live in a bikini! I don’t. And I wouldn’t.

    • Toni says:

      I’m a 51 year old women , I wear a bikini , but I also work out every day …., my mother at 57 was wearing a purple bikini !!! I don’t think she is a factor if your in shape or even feel comfortable in how you feel or look in one , who’s to judge ??? Your the one wearing it .. If you like it wear it …..

  • annie65 says:

    Helen Mirren looks the best and she is the oldest. Some of them are sooo white and some of them have skin that shows their age and should just wear a one piece and they would look so much better…………..

  • Sherrie says:

    I always feel a bit badly for those “celebs” in private moments that become so public and often uncomplimentary…

  • TexasDuchess says:

    Helen Mirren is hands down the best of the bunch–she’s real and beautifully curvy! The others? Except for plastic Janice, wet dress Goldie, and bizarre Nigella, they’re wearing really ugly bikinis. My advice–next time, try the suits on in a lighted dressing room that has a three-way mirror!

  • djhnkl@aol.com says:

    I think Helen Mirren looks fabulous………….much better than many women years her junior. Some can pull off the bikini after 50………most cannot. But then, many cannot wear a bikini and actually look good even at 30. It takes a good, really good body to look hot in a bikini.

  • belindabg says:

    Julianne Moore is the whitest person I’ve ever seen. I’m surprised she would go out with her skin looking like that – seems she’s just begging for a sunburn! And what’s up with that swim-burqa? Weird….
    Helen Mirren looks INCREDIBLE.

  • ktpotat says:

    I don’t blame Nigella for covering up so much. I always forget to put cover up somewhere and end up with some part of my body burned.
