“Age is just a number” is an adage, but it can also be a mindset. The march of time is inevitable, but some of us dread it more than others. We say, stop fretting and embrace it. Every star in this week’s installment of Best Dressed Celebrities is over 40, but their smile lines and general outlook on life forced us to stop counting their years and start appreciating how inspirational their style and demeanor is. Which ageless beauty has you looking forward to 40? Vote your favorite in the poll, below.
