My thoughts about her body? Too muscular for mi taste, but taking in count her age (42) she's doing well. What do you guys think?

I think she looks fabulous for 42. I agree that she's a bit too muscular but that certainly beats being flabby.

Oh psssh, she's a classic French beauty. So she's more muscular than I would like to be, she's 42 and clearly doing an incredible job at keeping herself youthful and healthy.

I 2nd that sentiment.....I think it looks like she must be enjoying her workouts and b/c she's so thin the muscle looks quite prominent. In person I bet she looks tiny. ALSO OMFG she's pulling off that bandeau bikini...not an easy task...

Thanks for the flashbacks...what a beauty! (And it looks like her teeth have shifted in her gap area over the years hmmm)

Living in the States at the moment.
Just wow. I bow down.
How does one have a body like that with aging? I mean assuming one wasn't obese and then lost a ton of weight and there wasn't a lot of sun damage.
Is it mostly genetic? Lots of cardio? Strength training? Low carb diet?
None of the women in my family have taken good care of themselves, and I don't know anyone who has aged this well, so I genuinely am clueless.

Well.....he USE to....
Yeah, I want to say that I have no idea what was Johnny thinking when he stopped the relation with Vanessa, even less seeing with who he is now, that Scarlet Johannson wannabe ( like if being her was even good, to begin with).

Vanessa has an impresive body. All my respect for women hitting the gym, more when they are 42 and with 2 children. This woman rocks! :bow: I also love that she never "fixed" her teeth. There is nothing to be fixed there, she is perfect, dot.

Yes! In my tweens I was really sorry that I am not French and that I don't have such teeth and such voice :D I also had no idea who Johnny Depp is at the time.

I've seen her in a concert a long time ago. And :

- she's a total sweetheart, patient with her fans, always smiling, not counting her time
- she has a beautiful voice and dances like a goddess
- her face is mesmerizing
- BUT her body is not as striking as in pictures. She is petite and thin, with a gorgeous skinny face, but she's not stick thin. Her legs are really really toned and look a bit bulky. She looks a bit " gym addicted", and not "heroin chic" as most of the french tabloids present her. I probably won't look at her if I saw her in the street... To sum up, she's probably an healthy - down to earth - talented women. Which is good enough ;)

Seeing the photos of Lily Rose made me think of her - such a great face! I like her muscly body more than Gwyneth Paltrow's, I'm not sure if she is leaner or whether I feel it just suits her frame better. Evidently growing muscle is a good way to age gracefully.

Even though her body isn't my ideal of skinny, I think she's one of the most beautiful and striking celebrities. @Arctic put it so well in that her face is really mesmerizing to me. I feel like she has such a unique atmosphere and... I'm not sure how to describe it but her beauty has so much depth. She's one of favorite woman celebrities (although my favorites regularly reorder themselves haha)

She's always looked great whatever age she is and she's had a really varied and interesting career too.

I think once you get past a certain age you have to get into exercise at least a little bit to stay in a good shape for your age so although she may be a touch muscular for people's taste, it's probably that she feels more comfortable going down this route than not.

Thanks for posting all those photos @sabine - it's a great retrospective!
