Is Jane Seymour the Sexiest at 61?

Our 30s are when we finally stop second-guessing ourselves. Our 40s are a time of power and action. Our 50s are when our wisdom comes in handy. And our 60s? Well, haven’t you heard—60 is the new sexy. Or at least one look at celebrities like Helen Mirren and Jane Seymour suggests such a radical and liberating idea. 

Seymour, who is 61 years old, recently showed up to a premier in a skin-tight, fire engine-red bandage dress with the confidence and grace, and the body of a stone cold fox. Sure, the former Bond Girl was born with the raw material, but whatever it is she is doing to stay so spandex-worthy in her senior years is definitely working.

The actress, who publicly proclaims that she is "proud of her wrinkles," also keeps her skin in tip-top shape as the spokes model and co-developer of the skin-care line Natural Advantage. She is proud to have not had a facelift, though she does admit to trying Botox, which she says she didn't love due to the fact she felt it took away from the expressiveness of her face.

She has had her eyes done, however, with an upper and lower blepharoplasty—a procedure that removes fat and excess skin from the eyelids and under eyes to make the area appear more youthful and less tired. She says photographers spent so much time retouching her eyes in photographs that she decided to go ahead with the surgery.

Her long, gorgeous red hair—a staple she has been sporting since the 70s—also helps her look youthful into her older years.

In our opinion, Seymour is making the sixties look like the sexiest decade yet.

Perception is everything. How ridiculous to suggest a woman is"trying to cling to her youth" just because she prefers classic, long hair. I feel just the opposite...women who follow trendy hair styles and youthful clothing are those "trying to cling" to their youth.

I am almost 54, and my hair grows like a weed! I have it super long,then I cut it just below the shoulers once a year. When I have five or ten extra pounds it can drag my face down, but so what (which sometimes happens when I hibernate in the winter months. I hate when I see women that let some stylists style them with the "latest" look- they look like they are trying to look younger with an unflattering cut. I have a chubby-faced friend who has thinned out longish hair with BANGS...she looks horrible and she is only 40. It really depends on your face, your hair, and your personal style.

@Melba I do not agree. It's just a stupid thing to cut your hair when you get older. Jane Seymour doesn't try to look younger, she's just lucky with her looks. Okay, maybe the long hair helps but at least it's a natural way of looking younger. I think more women over 50/60 should grow their hair.

Melba, I don't know you, but whenever I hear someone saying "nobody oer 50 should this or should that..." Why NOT? Jane's hair is beautiful AND healthy, so why on earth should she cut it into granny style just to please some naggers? I think it's ridiculous to try and dictate a certain style on people just because they reached a certain age. And it's degrading. Jane looks beautiful just the way she is.

Jane could use a haircut. Nobody over 50 should have hair flowing over her shoulders. It looks like she is desperately trying to cling to her youth. Just to the shoulder hair would look SO much better!
