According to respondents in Allure’s survey, George Clooney and Meryl Streep are the celebrities who have aged the best.
These days it seems like everyone is paying close attention to the aging process and how to combat it. In 2011 alone, Americans spent $2.3 billion on anti-aging skincare products and almost $10 billion on cosmetic procedures. Now taking a closer look at the growing trend, Allure has conducted their first ever survey on aging which has revealed some interesting, though not surprising, results.
Last night’s Academy Awards were a little snore-inducing, but it’s always fun to watch, and judge, the red carpet. Herewith, this year’s completely arbitrary, totally subjective picks and pans.
Knock It Off — We’re a little tired of the same, played-out looks from Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Lopez. We’ve seen Angie’s all-black, high slit too many times to count, and her leg posing last night had us rolling our eyes. J.Lo’s plunging neckline and its maybe-maybe-not wardrobe malfunction moment, which recalled her famous Versace gown from the Grammy’s in 2000, made us want to throw a sheet over the whole look.
Fullest Fringe — Rooney Mara’s got the ’20s style flapper bangs down to an art now (she’s been sporting the look since last fall), and when paired with her beautiful Givenchy gown, it was a win by far.
Evening Superhero — We swooned as soon as Gwyneth Paltrow stepped onto the red carpet. Wearing a gorgeous, caped Tom Ford look paired with a low, deconstructed ponytail, we couldn’t take our eyes off the actress’ stunning style all night long.
Role Model — There’s no doubt that Meryl Streep is one of the most talented ladies out there (17 Oscar nominations!), but she’s also one of the classiest, most gracious winners, too. When she accepted her Best Actress award last night, we were taking notes on how to seem lovely, poised, and witty all at the same time.
Prettiest Peplums — Michelle Williams and Tina Fey were stand-outs on the carpet showing off this ladylike trend. We give them both an A+ for style.
Best Feel Good Moment — As fans of the original 1965 version of The Sound of Music, we were so happy to see Christopher Plummer (a.k.a. Captain von Trapp) nominated for his role in this year’s Beginners. But we were even more ecstatic when the 82-year-old won the award, making his mark as the oldest actor ever to win an Oscar.

Maybe it’s the windswept hair, but Meryl Streep looks even more gorgeous than usual on the January cover of Vogue. At 62 years old, the actress is the oldest woman to ever grace the esteemed fashion magazine’s cover (back in 2004, 59-year-old Priscilla Presley posed next to her daughter and granddaughter).
