Hollywood is home to beautiful young starlets, but it is also filled with several of the most gorgeous ladies with gray locks. Here’s my list of the top ten who are in the limelight. And, by way of announcement, there’s no need to look for a follow-up top ten list of males. I don’t think anyone could convince me that Anderson Cooper has competition: sorry.
10. Betty White
The effortlessly-cool comedienne has graced our presence for a long time and, at the ripe age of 88 years old, is still going strong. Betty White is the Queen of game shows, the captor of our hearts and is stunning at every age.
9. Dame Judi Dench
Bond girl Judi Dench is fierce and fabulous. She can hold her own with the boys, yet look perfectly feminine at any and every awards show. She’s been invited to more than just a few.
8. Meryl Streep
The sometimes gray-haired vixen is still a knockout in her sixties. Streep commands the attention of a room or audience and has always been stunning. I’ll bet she likely always will be.
7. Diane Keaton
The funny lady is rarely one to play up her good looks, but that doesn’t negate her natural beauty. Even when Keaton is sporting menswear, her Annie Hall persona, she shows you can be confident and cool while owning your look. Keaton will turn heads well into her old age.
6. Jamie Lee Curtis
The feisty actress makes gray look good. Jamie Lee Curtis or Lady Haden-Guest is the wife of Lord Haden-Guest, needs not hide behind titles and accolades: if she wants your attention, she’ll get it. And, she’ll look dazzling while doing it.
5. Stacy London
Although not completely gray, Stacy London has been sporting her signature gray streak long enough to be considered for this list. London, America’s favorite fashion consultant, knows how to strut her stuff and is willing to help you strut yours, as well. Now, that’s a team player.
4. Sharon Stone
As another occasionally gray-haired woman, Sharon Stone is too stunning to just let go without a fight. Whether she maintains her tresses as gray, platinum or blue polka dots, the independent and successful actress consistently looks good.
3. Emmylou Harris
How can you see pictures of Emmylou Harris and not long for a head full of gorgeous gray hair? Her silver strands prove gray can be gorgeous, too– dye bottles need not apply. The talented singer-musician calls her own shots, and looks better than ever.
2. Blythe Danner
The sophisticated actress and activist is beautiful through and through. As the mother of Gwyneth Paltrow and grandmother of Apple Blythe Alison Martin, Danner has clearly passed on her great genes to her posterity.
1. Helen Mirren
Dame Helen Mirren, an accredited actress of the stage and the screen, has women half her age wondering how she stays in such great shape, has such great skin and such great hair–and on and on. Mirren remains the most beautiful silver-haired lady to walk the red carpet.
