Most people dread hitting the big 4-0. It’s like some wall that you smash into, beginning a descent away from one’s prime.

But for some, 40 is just a beginning.

A number of the world’s most beautiful women—models and actresses, the lot of them—have eclipsed that milestone and continued to enjoy popularity and acclaim on their Instagram pages. We’ve collected our 10 favorite below.

Christie Brinkley – 63 – Everybody’s crush since the ’80s. Still everybody’s crush.


Elle MacPherson – 53 – She holds the record for most Sports Illustrated Swimsuit covers with five, and she’s still stunning all these years later.


Monica Bellucci – 52 – She was a Bond girl at 50 in Spectre. A first for the franchise that was inspirational to many fans.


Elizabeth Hurley – 52 – RCL‘s given her Instagram page love in the past. (Hugh Grant is still kicking himself.)
