Heather Locklear, 49, turned heads in London recently when she attended a charity dinner for friend Samuel L. Jackson. Locklear was wearing a tight black dress showing off her curves and radiant glowing skin. The star turns 50 in a few weeks.
Locklear isn't the only celebrity over 40 with a body most 20-year-olds would die for.
Sheryl Crow might be 49 but she has the body of a 25-year-old! Tan and toned, the singer performed live with Kid Rock on the CMT Awards this summer with the duo's "Collide" collaboration. The singer looked better than ever with flawless skin, a beautiful smile and a toned, tan body.
In 2009 E! News asked Crow what her workout secrets were. The star admitted she used to be a big runner but with a young child around, son Wyatt, she just doesn't have the time to fit running into her schedule. Instead, she raved about the P90X workout system.
After heightening her career with hosting "American Idol" and releasing her first album in years with the hit dance song "On the Floor" feat. Pitbull, Jennifer Lopez recently announced her impending divorce from husband Marc Anthony.
The 42-year-old is known for her beautiful fashion statements and youthful radiant appearance, something that Anthony found intimidating. A source told US Weekly ""He would make her feel terrible about herself if she wanted to wear something sexy. He likes her to dress in a demure, 'wife' style. He hated the fact that she was a sex symbol."
45-year-old country/pop singer Shania Twain broke the stereotype of what female country singers should dress and act like when she debuted her single, "Any Man of Mine," in 1995 wearing a cut off t-shirt exposing her stomach in the video.
Several years later the star is no stranger to being sexy and staying in shape for the spotlight. The star released her memoir, "From This Moment On," in 2011 and starred in her reality show on OWN, "Why Not? With Shania Twain."
Sarah Jessica Parker
With her fun, youthful attitude and toned body you'd never guess Sarah Jessica Parker turned 46 this year. The "Sex and the City" star stays young by chasing her three children around and trying different beauty creams. Although the star looks fabulous for her age she says she couldn't feel more old and tired.
"I don't have a beauty secret," says the "Sex and the City" actress. "I feel old and tired! I have children I run round after, I try to walk as much as possible, and other than that I buy every cream possible. I love beautiful clothes and am privileged enough to have access to a lot of them, but they're returned the next day. They're not mine!"
