This is an extraordinary description of my mother.  She got older and stayed beautiful.  She got looks from men well into her 60's.  I believe that women for some time have been "poo pooing" the idea that ageing means losing one's beauty and that belief alone has been effective in slowing the aging effect upon one's person.
