    My advice to her would be to stay out of the Australian outback. Looks like she spent a lot longer than 5 years there. Possibly almost a lifetime?

    Lady #1 also seems to be less genetically gifted as the second lady is gifted. I found out that when you have less padding-I don't think it is fat, on the forehead you wrinkle early. My husband has very thin skin on his forehead and looked 'old' when I married him at 38. (He was 38) He has deep creases around his eyes etc. I on the other hand seem to have better 'skin'. I can see which of our kids (and his by a previous marriage) take after him as far as lines etc. My oldest son, has had the forehead creases for a number of years (He's 27) and my daughter who turns 21 next month has them already. I think genetics play a huge part in how you look as you age. Sun is also very aging. I think there are many more factors, health, smoking and so on.

    I watched Martha Stewart this last year on Hallmark, and she is 70! Now I know she is really photogenic, and I don't know if she has had any work done, but gee, she sure doesn't look 70 to me.

    Have you ever seen the photos of stars without makeup and special lighting? I wouldn't know Oprah if I ran into her without all that! Even beautiful stars like Sandra Bullock look like they've had a rough night being photographed without their makeup and photographic lighting. Plus, look up those two on snopes.com - it's not as cut and dried as we might think!

    I used to watch Nigella on the food network and when I heard her story about her life; I thought she deserves to be happy in life after her husband died. I have always liked her sense of humor and have lots of her cookbooks.
    That is one person in my lifetme that would so cool to have lunch with and laugh.

    I'll take Door 2 please .. LOL Thanks for sharing !!

    So much of it is genetics too. I had a friend and teacher who jogged, ate right, and drank very little who died from ovarian cancer at the young age of 63. I say everything in moderation and enjoy life! It is over way too quickly in this form.

    Wonderful answer!!

    Veggies, fruits, exercise, and vitamins are all well and good, but I still cook meat (yes, the red kind! ), some taters and whole wheat bread...and some chocolate now and then for a treat!
    When someone mentions quilting, I go to pieces!

    One guild member has eaten nothing but fruits, grains, and vegetables for over 30 years. No animal products at all, no dairy or fish. She looks like death warmed over. All the new members think she is one of the elderly members. She is 51.
    Got fabric?

    Regardless of what society thinks of the worth of big boobs, facelifts or not, makeovers or not - which lady would we most like to resemble when we look in the mirror? No. 2!!!!I always think the best that I can envision myself looking is at least 10 years younger! LOL. I have high self esteem but I would prefer that parts of my face and body did not tend to droop closer toward the floor every morning when I wake up. When I reach the famous 80th birthday I will probably be able to staple dixie cups to my belt and forget the bra and who knows what depths the eye lids will have reached.By then I can use body paint on my ear lobes and start a new dangle fashion and let's not even talk about where the hips are going. Old age has hit me at a bad time in my life.

    What part of the fact that protein is the building block of the body's cells does the world not understand? Very few of us can live truly healthily without good protein. No wonder she looks like death warmed over!

    I vote for #2 lifestyle. Of course, photo touch-ups work wonders!

    Lets not forget genetics. I vote for gillian if for no other reason than her lifestyle just might be more compassionate. She is also not affraid to be exactly who she is.

    Eating meat is cruel and will eventually kill you from the inside out rather than the outside in.

    I think we just might be forgetting that looks aren't everything.

    Why not post pics of each woman in full or no makeup. This is very distorted.

    Here we go again, equating everything to appearance. We are a truely screwed up society.

    Edit: the more I read the angrier i got. Shame on all you beauty queens.

    Peace

    Well, I eat and live a very strict Vegan lifestyle and yet folks are surprised when I tell them my age - they always say younger than I am and I'm very healthy. To the person ( I think it was Jan in VA)who mentioned that we need good protein - please define what you consider good protein.
