Do you know what day it is? It’s #WCW! For the old heads that stands for Women Crush Wednesday where men and women alike post their female crush on their social media accounts. Instead of posting ladies with more booty than brains, how about we post the women with not only banging bods but also beautiful talents.
There’s something about Black skin that’s smooth yet tough enough to stand the test of time. In the Black community, 40 is truly the new 20 when it comes to age. Black men and especially Black women are aging like fine wine. I mean, have you seen Angela Bassett lately?! I’ve got a list of Black female celebrities that like wine get better with time. Scroll down to check them out but do it with CAUTION! These beauties may force you to become a vegetarian, make the gym your new home and trek to Italy in search of the fountain of youth.

Long gone should be the days of dodging the “age” question, at least for us Black women! Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, but beautiful old people are works of art.” –Eleanor Roosevelt
