Gwyneth Paltrow
At 47 years young, Paltrow looks just as incredible now as she did 20 years ago. 

Christie Brinkley
“Early morning swim,” the 66-year-old captioned this photo of her vacationing in Parrot Cay with her family. Although she just wrapped CHICAGO on Broadway, these photos prove you can’t (and shouldn’t!) take the model out of her.

Captioning her jaw-dropping Instagram photo “55 and shameless,” the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star and mother of two proves that your best body can indeed come after 50. Her workout secrets include lots of yoga, as well as spinning and hiking. However, the biggest key to success, as revealed in a previous Instagram photo, is sticking with it. “I’m real consistent. Like really,” she says.

Padma Lakshmi
The 49-year-old Top Chef host took a break from the SXSW madness in Austin, TX to share her “yee haw energy” with her Instagram fans.

Angela Bassett
In celebration of her 60th birthday, the star posted an image of herself in a bikini onto her Instagram account. While the picture as a whole is clearly beautiful, it’s her abdominals that we can’t seem to tear our gaze from (they’re just so chiseled!). “Happy Birthday to all my Leo brothers and sisters,” she captioned the ab-focused post. “Let’s eat cake!”

Angie Harmon spent some time on a beach with friends and family to celebrate her 46th birthday, showing off her insanely fit physique in the process.
