Very nice list and some great picks. Hard to believe I grew up watching these women on TV.

Almost all of these ladies have aged gracefully and are still beautiful, with a few exceptions.

Sarah Michelle Gellar looks like an anorexic. She's always been a bit skinny, but now it just makes her look like skin and bones. Gross.

Pamela Anderson has had too much work done since her days on Baywatch. Now she looks like somebody who was in an accident and had plastic surgery to fix the damage.

And then, Janet Jackson. She's pretty much gone the way of her brother. Yeesh.

Nice list Mickey.
