Raquel Welch looked so amazing at the Governors Awards in L.A. on Sunday night that it’s hard to believe she’s 73.

Her curve-hugging red gown and gloriously silky hair made us think that she’s getting younger as the years go by, Benjamin Button-style.

Or perhaps she has a magic potion that keeps away wrinkles, thinning hair, and sagging …uh, you know … because many women half her age would have had trouble pulling off that plunging neckline and dramatic slit.

At the very least, she has an incredible makeup and hair team who know just what to do. Her makeup is soft and feminine, showing off her amazing cheekbones and allowing her skin to glow, and her colorist clearly deserves an Academy Award.

We dare say she rivaled Angelina Jolie‘s red carpet look that night.

What do you think of Welch’s bombshell look?

I’ve always thought she was &is one of the most beautiful woman ever in Hollywood.I always wanted to be as glamorous and age as gracefully as she has, just stunning

She’s beautiful, and classy to boot. But there is NO WAY she looks like this at 73 without surgery.


the woman is fundamentally beautiful. im sure she had her fair share of nipped and tucked, lets not forget the lipo. however she still manages to stay recognizable. cant say that for half of the women in Hollywood, young and old.

She does look lovelier than Angelina Jolie! In fact, Angelina looks older than Raquel. How does Raquel do it? My God, she is gorgeous…just stunning!!!!

She is beautiful, no doubt, because a figure like that just doesn’t happen! I would bet though, that her hair is a wig from her collection…it can’t be hers at that age.

Raquel looks gorgeous but I can’t help think that she has been surgically enhanced. And I’d guess it’s a wig or some kind. Still, I hope to look like her when I’m 73 yo!

She looks amazing. Good genes and bone structure have done her well.

For crying out loud, she’s not a feat of nature, People. She’s the result of many, many years of plastic surgery, cosmetic procedures and an endless wig collection. Anyone with the monetary resources she has could continue with this upkeep if they had the $ and time.

If that’s her hair, it’s only “some” of her real hair and the rest is a piece. She’s had her own line of wigs for eons.

There were rumors decades ago that she received silicone injections in order to create the stunning figure she had in the movies. Whether it is true or not, she’s not saying.

Digit, you are such a hater, get a life
