I wouldn't mind looking like Emmylou Harris. Born in 1947 and still stunning. Not sure if she's had "work" done, but if so, it was successful.

See I think women like Jamie Lee Curtis look great (yes I also realize this has probably been photoshopped a bit too). But she seems to own this look and it is appropriate for her age in my opinion. I think she looks great here. Looking natural as you age gracefully I think is the key.

Poor daughter--maybe she should try looking like 12?
i could too. Legs for one thing, another is the daughter's nose- if she were having plastic surgery the surgeon wold talk her into a run of the mill "cute" bunny nose. I like her nose!

I've been refusing to act my age for years, but I'd sure hate to look as young as I'm acting. I like the way our local lineup shows respect for the geezer surfers. When I walk out onto a taekwondo mat today, I get respect just by walking out there under my own power. Today when I look at the 38-45-year-olds commanding submarines, they look so... so young and inexperienced. I used to think they were older than dirt.

If she's spending her own 10K pounds to reach her goals, then more power to her. But I think she needs some different goals. Healthy eating, more exercise, healthier living habits, lower stress-- at her age those could all be as effective as the surgery. Besides, there are a lot of things that can go wrong (and rarely do, but still) during elective surgery under general anaesthesia. It ain't like changing a car's head gasket.

If medical science could flawlessly restore my telomeres to their original length, of course, I'd be all over that in a heartbeat.

Is that a walking cane by her left hip, or a guitar stand?

Look at the way Jimmy Buffett has aged since the 1970s, too. It'd be interesting to learn whether he's had any nips/tucks either.

OTOH I have no doubt that Keith Richards, Mick Jagger, & Steven Tyler are sporting their factory originals...

I certainly would not want to look 25 but yet have the physical ailments of a 65 or 70 year old (arthritis, bum knee, metamucilosis, etc). That's just wierd...

DW on the other hand sometimes mentions that she may someday want to "defy gravity" of its effects, and perhaps have "an alignment".

Also the daughter's roots are showing, but the mother's are not. If the mother spent a bazillion dollars on cosmetic surgery and other beauty treatments you can be pretty sure that she would pay attention to details like that, even if her daughter might not.

I broke my nose very badly at age 14 playing volleyball, pretty much smearing it across my face. My plastic surgeon (my father) made it completely straight and classical. I was incensed and hated the change because it had been a cute little "ski nose" before that. It works though, and were he still alive I am sure that would be his response.

Ha, I too thought the daughter was much more appealing in her natural state of cuteness than mom, because all kids her age are adorable imho.

I hope her mom's obsession doesn't affect her!

To me there is something not healthy about a mother who wants to look like her daughter. Competitive or just codependent? I'm not comfortable with the idea of this one at all.

That's too funny. Silver threads among the platinum.
