It may only be 5 months into 2017, but if you take 5 minutes out of your day you’re going to see 15 photos that prove these women truly do just seem to be getting better looking with time.
It’s definitely a great thing for you, as we’ve tracked down some of their hottest moments all from this past year and many of which that help also prove the point that these women are still comfortable showing off plenty of skin (though to quote Seinfeld, not that there’s anything wrong with that!).
There’s even one star on our list who has spent decades on television but only very recently stripped down for a bikini photo shoot and you better believe we’ve included it below. But if you think she’s the only one on our list that enjoys soaking in the sun, you’re about to be pleasantly surprised. And while you may be able to guess some of our entries, we make sure to span different industries including making sure we give former WWE Diva (and Playboy model) Torrie Wilson some credit who you’ll agree is looking in perhaps the best shape of her entire life.
But no matter your stance on who these celebrities are as people, we’re sure you’ll be ecstatic with your decision to spend only a few minutes of your day familiarizing yourself with why these women are considered some of the biggest sex symbols for the last few decades.
15. Eva Longoria
Eva Longoria had to spend part of her year defending her pregnancy rumors after some photos emerged of her looking less than her usual best,
“Morning, everybody, last day in paradise and I’m exhausted. We worked out this morning. So I saw some pictures of myself [looking] really fat on a boat. I have to tell you, all I did was eat cheese. So that’s the news of the day. I’m not pregnant, just eating a lot of cheese, a lot of wine, a lot of pancakes,” said Longoria in an Instagram video.
One other way she chose to deny the rumors? Taking to the beach again wearing a sexy swimsuit that leaves little to your imagination! Longoria hit up the beach with her husband Jose Baston, and in the process perhaps makes her former partner Tony Parker wonder if it was such a smart decision to cheat on her.
14. Kate Beckinsale
Kate Beckinsale‘s character gets one hell of a workout whenever she gears up for an adventure in the Underworld franchise and when you consider Beckinsale still has an outstanding body it’s clear that her days of being a potentially intimidating force on the big screen aren’t behind her (give her a call Tom Cruise!).
When talking about how she stays in such amazing shape, Beckinsale revealed,
“I don’t drink alcohol. I feel [its effects] very quickly, so I’ve never actually had an entire glass of anything alcoholic. I basically wake up, eat breakfast, and then work out. I prefer to get it done in the morning.”
13. Joanna Krupa
Joanna Krupa is well aware that she should still be considered one of the sexiest women in Hollywood, and just in case you denied it, she has no hesitation of taking to Instagram without her clothes on to show the world just how well her body is aging. Granted when she has over 1 million followers, it’s hard to argue with her strategy for gaining attention
While you may know her for her time on The Real Housewives of Miami, she did get to show off her dancing ability on the reality show Dancing with the Stars and also hosts the Polish version of Top Model.
12. Britney Spears
Britney Spears has had several moments during her career where if you saw her at the local bar, she probably wouldn’t stand out to you, and if she did, it wouldn’t necessarily be for the right reasons like “why is that bald chick slamming shots and crying periodically?”
However, if she walked through the door now, we wouldn’t blame you if you’re left speechless because Spears is clearly back in a big way both professionally and physically. She didn’t hesitate to show off either of those features with one of her more recent singles “Slumber Party” which has over 63 million views on YouTube.
While Spears has spent most of her time performing as of late in Las Vegas, she announced earlier this year that she’s planning to end her time there in the near future. If that means Spears may have more time to make music videos, more power to her!
11. Halle Berry
Halle Berry is one of the most inconsistent actresses out there and while she’s had some incredible duds like Catwoman we can’t hide our excitement for the upcoming Kingsman film which Berry is lending a hand in. Granted it may be the casting of Channing Tatum or the return of favorites like Colin Firth that help really fuel our excitement, but getting to look at the ageless wonder Halle Berry is certainly not going to be a bad thing.
Though she is also starring in the upcoming movie Kidnap in which she tries to recover her kidnapped son and has had several release dates being pushed back which is never a great sign and honestly just sounds like a Berry version of Taken and that too seems unnecessary.
10. Elizabeth Hurley
Elizabeth Hurley may be now 51 years old, but when you check out that above photo of her in a swimsuit you may find yourself agreeing that you hope she elects to spend her summer taking in the sun.
Especially when you consider the photo that we’ve included above of Hurley looking ravishing in red is from her own personal collection
When talking about her aspirations for other women, Hurley said
“I like women to feel very confident in how they look and to accept that every size can be beautiful. But I still think it’s important to be in shape.
9. Sofia Vergara
Sofia Vergara has found tremendous success on the television series Modern Family, but the series is not without one particular drawback for Vergara,
“Watching myself age on screen is awful! There is nothing more disturbing than watching an episode of Modern Family from the first season, then one from seven years later. It just makes me want to kill myself, but what can I do? I’ll be sad when the wolf whistles stop. I’m already sad that men have started calling me ‘Señora.’ I get really pissed off,” said Vergara in a past interview.
While you may agree that she looks older than at the start of the series (granted it was back in 2009 when it aired), we’re sure you also agree that this list would have been incomplete without Vergara.
8. Torrie Wilson
Torrie Wilson wasn’t necessarily hired for her in-ring abilities, but her good looks and captivating personality helped her find a place in the WWE for several years and even if she won’t be laying the smacketh down anytime soon, you may agree with us when we say that in the above photo she may look like she’s in the best shape of her entire career!
Wilson doesn’t shy away from posting her workouts (and skimpy outfits that she wears to said workouts!) on her Instagram for her close to 500,000 followers.
While Wilson has previously posed for Playboy in her career, the last of which was years ago, we’re sure you wouldn’t hate if Hefner gave her a ring and gave her the opportunity to show off all of her hard work in front of some professional cameras.
7. Kim Kardashian
When you consider the younger version of Kim Kardashian is perhaps best known for her evening with Ray J, perhaps you’d definitely agree with us that she is continuing to look a lot better with age (and you know distance) from that less than flattering moment. Plus we’re sure you have no problems with how unbelievably hot Kim is looking as of late.
Now a mother of 2, you can hope that Kardashian’s biggest partying days are behind her, but that clearly hasn’t slowed her down from constantly revealing some skin for when she goes out for a night on the town.
6. Jennifer Lopez
Jennifer Lopez is both a talented singer, as well as a talented actress (despite appearing in Gigli) and will get to put both of those on display when she plays the lead role in the upcoming Bye Bye Birdie Live! that will air in December and will surely make for a nice Holiday season for Lopez.
While you may be a fan of the original, you can expect some changes for the December rendition.
“I want to be true to the time it takes place but at the same time, having Rosie be Albert’s secretary whom he’s having an affair with, is a little sexist and old-fashioned. I didn’t see any reason for that. So I changed that,” said Harvey Fierstein who is responsible for the adaptation. He went on to say,
“I made them both high school teachers…He’s the English teacher who writes a song, and she’s the music teacher who says, “I’ve got a great kid with a great voice.”
Lopez will be 48 in December but we’re sure the people behind the production aren’t worried about how she’ll shine on stage.
5. Reese Witherspoon
Reese Witherspoon has had an up and down life including a high-profile relationship with fellow actor Ryan Phillippe, only for him to then decide that cheating on her was a good way for him to spend his days.
And while she’s had plenty of movies in which she would rather not talk about, she’s back and perhaps better than ever with her most recent television series Big Little Liars which also stars Nicole Kidman and Shailene Woodley that earned critical acclaim.
Witherspoon has several exciting movies on the horizon, including being the only cast member currently linked to the upcoming Disney live-action film Tinker Bell.
4. Jennifer Aniston
C’mon now, you couldn’t honestly expect that we’re going to be able to complete a list of celebrities who just seem to keep getting hotter and not include a woman who looks like she hasn’t aged a day in a decade! Which is even more impressive when you consider you probably look at a younger Aniston on Friends on a regular basis.
When talking about how she keeps her skin looking so youthful, Aniston said,
“[It’s] very simple, very consistent. I use Aveeno’s Nourishing Cleanser in the morning; they finally have a serum now — love me a good serum. So cleanser, serum, daily moisturizer, which has to have sunscreen in it. Their daily is SPF 30, which is great. That’s it.”
3. Heidi Klum
When you consider that Heidi Klum is one of the most successful models of all-time, are you really surprised to see that she is still looking as gorgeous as ever in 2017?
Klum can thankfully be seen on a regular basis in 2017 as starting in May she’ll be returning as a judge or America’s Got Talent and when you consider the show is also adding Tyra Banks to the roster as a new host (replacing Nick Cannon) you can understand that there are several reasons to be checking in! Judging by the two separate swimsuit photos we’ve included of Klum, it’s clear you’ll also be able to see her on a regular basis at the beach.
Klum is currently dating an independent art curator and previously had a prominent relationship with the musician Seal.
2. Winona Ryder
Winona Ryder has had a tumultuous career including spending part of her 1990s getting over a relationship with Johnny Depp, but now at the age of 45, Ryder is perhaps looking like more of a foxy lady in Hollywood than ever before.
Granted it helps that everyone fell in love with her for her performance on Stranger Things which gave her plenty of reasons to attend various red carpet events and talk shows where she would proceed to leave your jaw on the floor.
1. Kristina Wagner
If you’re shocked to see Kristina Wagner, who has spent decades on television on the television series General Hospital on this list and in a bikini, we wouldn’t blame you.
After all, Wagner has always looked great on TV, but when it comes to the swimsuit photo of her that we’ve included above, Wagner admitted,
“Never in my life have I posed in a bikini or underwear before, but I didn’t mind because it’s not about “how do you get fit so you can wear a bikini”— it’s about a lifestyle and having good body image,”
Wagner went on to give some great advice,
“I look my best if I focus on taking care of my whole self—mind, body and spirit. But as I’ve become older, I’ve learned to honor myself, honor my feelings, own them and feel good about who I am. I don’t need to judge myself anymore.”
