With their effortless style, inner confidence and figures that would make girls half their age jealous, we’re seriously woman crushing on these yummy mummies!

If you thought girl power died when the Spice Girls split up (still devo, FYI) then think again. A poll by fashion retailer JD Williams has revealed that body confidence in women, particularly those over the age of 50, has reached an all time high.

The survey revealed that 94% of women over 50 feel younger than their age, with 8 out of 10 women surveyed saying they would never resort to extremes such as plastic surgery. Hear hear, ladies!

And it’s not just their body confidence that’s inspiring the younger generation of women, beaut mum-bods such as Helen Mirren, Elle Macpherson, Jerry Hall and Heidi Klum are seriously on fleek when it comes to fashion, too.

Helen Mirren (69) has perfected the art of dressing for her shape by wearing classic cuts which nip her in at the waist, whilst Jerry (59) has made a name for herself as an ever lasting glamour puss thanks to her love for leopard prints, sexy shifts and shoulder flashing dresses.

The original supermodels, Elle Macpherson and Heidi Klum have tried more trends than we’ve had hot dinners, and now they’re more comfortable in their style than ever. Elle (51) sticks to timeless tailoring with blazers and fitted dresses galore, while Heidi (42) has become famous for her rock chick style. Think sexy leather, mini skirts and punky accessories.

And who could forget Mary Berry – at 80 years old, she’s basically the poster girl for a statement jacket. Mez Bez, we salute you (and your cakes).

But you don’t need to be the same age as these fine fillies to rock their style – they’re living proof that it’s not about dressing for your age, but dressing for your self. Now that’s what we call positive vibez.

Now we just need to start practicing those high kicks….
