Celebrities who look stunning over 70 as Joan Collins wows in bikini age 89

Joan Collins, 89, wowed her fans while dressed in just a bikini while on holiday with her toyboy husband, 56, last week - so we thought we'd take a look at some other hot celebrities aged 70 and over.

Dame Joan said that she was "feeling good" on the sunshine break with her husband Percy Gibson. The pair were sunning it up in Saint Tropez, with the Dynasty icon sharing a snap from her trip to her Instagram.

In the picture you can see Joan and her husband, 33 years her junior, soaking up the French sun. Wearing a blue bikini, the Dynasty alum got quite the reaction from commenters, who showered Dame Joan with compliments.

The star proves that gone are the days when females of a certain age were considered over the hill because of the stage of life they are at, in fact, it's the opposite.

From Helen Mirren to Cher, these magnificent legends aren’t just stylish and successful celebs, they’re all proving you can be just as sexy at 70 as you can at any age.

Let's start with model Angie Best who has been pictured in a swimsuit as she aims to make 70 the new 50. And the former Playboy bunny says she has "no intentions of disappearing".

Angie celebrated her 70th Birthday on July 26, 2022. Angie is the ex-wife of footy star George Best and mother to American TV personality Calum Best.


The Believe singer, also known as the 'Goddess of Pop', has always looked decades younger that what she actually is and - some would say that at the age of 76 - she's aged like a fine wine.

Cher has been described as embodying female autonomy in a male-dominated industry. She recently made a comeback to the big screen when she starred in Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again and looked younger than some of her castmates who were in their 30s.

Meryl Streep

Meryl Streep has often been referred to as the "best actress of her generation". Meryl has starred in various big movie-hitters including Mamma Mia!, It's Complicated and The Devil Wears Prada. And let's not forget she's been pulling off incredible looks since the late 70s.

Though she’s always been a very British pin-up, the Avengers and Absolutely Fabulous star has frequently turned to a rather Hollywood means of keeping her youthful complexion.

Glamorous grandmother Dame Joanna, who is 76, has admitted to having regular collagen injections to stop her looking "old and tired".

Helen Mirren

The Dame played The Queen and when it comes to staying youthful, she still rules. Uber cool Helen, 77, insists the secret to looking good in later years is keeping up with current trends and not making yourself look like you’ve just arrived from another era.

Elton John

At the age of 75, he's still a fashion icon. And there's no chance of the legend retiring from the piano anytime soon after it was announced that Britney Spears is set to return to the music scene in a collaboration with Sir Elton.
