In our youth-obsessed society that tends to hide and ignore older age, it’s not hard to notice that women in their twenties or thirties are far more represented in movies and magazines. However today, many women over 50, 60 or even 70 are stunning, confident and sexy. Beauty has nothing to do with age. Who said mature women should be envious of their younger counterparts?
