Is 45 the new 30?
Halle Berry, arguably one of the world's most beautiful mothers, celebrated her 45th birthday last month at the beach, wearing a coral bikini and looking almost preternaturally gorgeous.
Supermodel Cindy Crawford also turned 45 this year, and shows off her figure to great effect in a skintight outfit on the September cover of Harper’s Bazaar Singapore. She also just wowed the crowds at the Venice Film Festival, making us wonder how her skin stays so flawless -- all the time.
So it got us thinking: is something going on? Maybe 45 is the new 30, only better. There are several prominent women who are at the height of their careers, making a comeback, who are cancer survivors, raising families... and looking super-hot.
To test our theory, we created a gallery of well-known women who are 45 or turning 45 this year. See for yourself what the new 45 looks like.
