Though there was plenty of young blood at this year’s Oscars, we couldn’t help but notice how radiant the veteran actresses looked, rocking beautiful gowns and flawless complexions.
From Bette Midler belting her rendition of “Wind Beneath My Wings” to Meryl Streep sitting pretty on her 18th nomination, the older ladies came away as real beauty winners!
Is there something in the Hollywood water which prevents these women from aging?! If so, where can we get some? Scroll down for pictures of our favorite ladies over 60!
Midler, 68, had the difficult task of performing directly after the tributes, but did a remarkable job honoring those in the industry we lost over the past year. She sang the classic 1983 ballad, “Wind Beneath My Wings,” and looked stunning in a red embroidered Reem Acra gown while walking down the red carpet (picture above).

The presenter, 67, and former Oscar winner certainly got the crowd’s attention in a stunningly beautiful Randi Rahm black sequined gown. But it wasn’t just the dress that turned heads. Field’s beautiful smile accented by her delicate curls gave the actress a joyful glow which immediately brought some positive energy to the room!
The 68-year-old showed she’s still got it while presenting an award at last night’s ceremony. The actress, who attended with long-time partner Kurt Russell, wore a champagne-colored Versace gown with beaded drop sleeves. When standing next to daughter Kate Hudson, who also presented, you would think the two were sisters not mother-daughter!
Streep, 64, hasn’t lost her Oscars touch, even after a whopping 18 nominations! The star dazzled in an off-the-shoulder black and white Lanvin gown, which she accessorized with a sparkly belt. She may not have won, but she certainly had her fair share of admirers last night!
The six-time Oscar nominee shone on stage as a presenter in a black Zac Posen gown with matching bolero jacket. We had to do a double-take when we found out she was 66-years-old! Her skin looked absolutely flawless.
The former Oscar nominee, 61, there to support her film 12 Years a Slave, held her own next to red carpet darling and co-star Lupita Nyong’o in a navy gown with beading on the top. Woodard worked the carpet with subtle yet strong poses and a fierce facial expression.
