Sandra Bullock Just Took the Crown For Ageless Style

Jul 28 2014 - 9:10am

As the saying goes, rules are meant to be broken. And when that rule is an antiquated restriction on what a woman can wear, that's a case where it needs to be broken, smashed, exploded, and burned.

That's exactly what just-turned-50 star Sandra Bullock [1] did this weekend when she once again proved that age is just a number. And she's in good company! Stars like Cameron Diaz [2] and Jennifer Lopez [3] aren't adhering to credos that say women over 40 can't wear minis, bare their midriffs, or just be the generally sexy stars that they are [4]. Since they often pull off these sultry designs better than women half their years, we have to ask: how can these looks be wrong when they feel so right? And while a lady never reveals her age, we have a feeling these stars wouldn't mind us sharing — because they look so darn good!

Sandra Bullock [6] lived up to her Decade of Hotness title a few months back, when she took the stage at the Guys Choice Awards in a neon mini that could only be described as, well, hot.

Gwyneth Paltrow at 41

Every 41-year-old might not want to bare their midriff like Gwyneth Paltrow [7], but how many 41-year-olds (let alone 21-year-olds) do you know who have abs like Gwyneth?

Jennifer Lopez at 44

Though Jennifer Lopez [8]'s Donna Karan [9] gown at the Billboard Music Awards was indisputably hot, it's impossible to say whether it was definitively her sexiest look ever [10] — she's just had so many of them!

Salma Hayek at 47

Salma Hayek [11]'s known for her curves, and she has yet to stop embracing them.

Sofia Vergara at 41

The same could be said for the ever-spicy Sofia Vergara.

Halle Berry at 47

Erring on the more demure end of the spectrum, Halle Berry [12] kept things sexy with a sky-high thigh slit.

Kate Beckinsale at 40

If you thought the front of Kate Beckinsale [13]'s gown was sultry, a 90-degree spin revealed a completely open back.

Naomi Watts [14] channeled her inner Beyoncé [15] in Givenchy [16] at this year's Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art [17].

Julianne Moore at 53

No princess gowns here! Julianne Moore walked on the edge when she attended the Cannes Film Festival in her plunging leather Louis Vuitton [18] gown.

Elizabeth Banks at 40

There was no shortage of sexy when Elizabeth Banks attended the Vanity Fair Oscars bash in hint of midriff and a sprinkle of feathers.

Cameron Diaz at 41

Cameron Diaz [19] intimidated by other women? Not so much. The actress blew away the competition at the UK premiere of The Other Woman in a sexy leather sheath.

Va-va-va-voom! Jennifer Aniston [20] had curves for days in her draped Vivienne Westwood [21] design at the Toronto Film Festival Life of Crime premiere.

To quote another famous shorn blonde [22], Sharon Stone [23] "can't stop, won't stop" — nor should she!
