Sizzling at 61: Seymour stuns in bandage dress
Ageless actress Jane Seymour puts the sexy in sexagenarian.
Monday’s L.A. premiere of Freeloaders put proof to the adage “60 is the new 40” when actress Jane Seymour strode into view. Wearing a body-hugging Herve Leger bandage dress to absolute perfection, the 61-year-old again showed what a combo of good genetics and wise lifestyle choices can do for a grandmom’s looks.

What she didn’t show off were any obvious signs of plastic surgery. We love the absence of botox-freeze, trout-pout and the mask-like face celebs frequently sport when they go overboard with the fillers. (Seymour, like Helen Mirren, knows that growing older beautifully means letting some signs of aging stay put.) How does she keep that girlish figure? USmag.com quotes her as saying she likes “reasonably healthy food,” a bit of "Pilates, Gyrotronics with weights," and trudging through cold “country lanes in England.”

Sunglasses: it may seem counterintuitive to invest in a wintertime accessory traditionally viewed as a sunny, warm-weather item. But spring is on the way and we’re also currently being exposed to crazy amounts of UV rays—and then, of course, there’s the reflective snow situation.
Some people look younger than they are, some look older. Even those with easy access to BOTOX and personal trainers. Can you guess the age of these celebrities?

Then after the show, er, Oscars, it's the after party. Then after the party, it's the... Best Dressed List, of course. Nikki already picked her tops for the Academy Awards red carpet (did you vote yet?), so now it's time to see what the stars wore to the post-celebrations.
As I continue my personal campaign to swap out E!'s mani cam with a back-of-updo cam (and as a service to all the hardworking hairstylists who spent so much time creating beautiful hair looks for the 2014 Oscars), I'd like to point out that we miss a lot of gorgeous detail when we don't get the back view of a star's hair.

When someone says “Julia Roberts,” you think teeth. You think hair. But while you may not immediately think fashion, she has had a pretty consistent—and consistently pretty—style since her Mystic Pizza days: clean, classic, menswear-inspired looks that let her natural beauty—and rightly famous smile—take center stage.

We’re at the tail end of a jam-packed awards season, with the grand finale—the Oscars, duh—just a few days away. We can’t wait to see what our favorite nominees wear—we already know Jennifer Lawrence will step out in a breathtaking Dior, while we hope to see Lupita Nyong’o pick another brilliantly bold monochromatic gown. As for which designer she’ll select—Gucci? Ralph Lauren?—that’s anyone’s guess.
