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.

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.”

On the other hand, they also didn’t have to worry about sexting, selecting the best selfie for their profile picture, or accidentally swiping right on a coworker.
If you’re anything like me, you probably haven’t gone anywhere near a hair accessory for years—save for the few stretched-out Goody elastics tumbling around at the bottom of your handbag, the slightly rusty bobby pins gathering dust at the back of your medicine cabinet or that scrunchie you use to pull your hair back when washing your face in the morning. For as long as I can remember, hair adornments have been slapped with somewhat of a childish reputation; when’s the last time you saw a girl over the age of 11 wearing a barrette or witnessed a woman past her teen years sporting a headband?
