Want to look this good at 55? Then stick with veggies

WOMEN wondering about the secret to eternal youth need look no further than actress Sharon Stone.

Basic Instinct star Stone (55) looked half her age while appearing in a daring red dress at the De Grisogono Party during the 66th Cannes Film Festival.

The mum-of-three's backless dress was slashed to the thigh, showing off her best assets as she posed alongside De Grisogono Founder and President Fawaz Gruosi.

But anyone thinking, or hoping, her secret is expensive potions or creams, will be disappointed – the answer is, in fact, a very healthy diet.

Earlier in the day, Stone was snapped enjoying a lunch on board a yacht. But, instead of fat-laden treats and champagne, slices of carrot and celery washed down with juice were on offer.

Sharon seemed relaxed and chilled out as she enjoyed some carrot sticks and a coffee with a group of friends.

Sharon was among a host of actresses and supermodels that attended Cannes last night.

And most of them seemed to be taking tips from the actress when it came to turning up the glamour for the prerequisite red-carpet shot. Great Gatsby and Grecian styles seemed to be the order of the day.

Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain opted for the Grecian style, which stood her in good stead for the awards season earlier this year.


Paris Hilton, meanwhile, turned to an on-trend Great Gatsby-esque head-dress – although the fashion police seem to be at odds as to whether she rocked it.

F1 heiress Tamara Ecclestone graced the red carpet in a nude, figure-hugging number, while Swedish model Victoria Silvstedt turned to a silver sequinned number to shimmy for photographers.

Supermodel Petra Nemcova literally dazzled in a gold, floor-length gown, while burlesque star Dita Von Teese turned demure with a red, vintage-style frock.

Meanwhile, La Dolce Vita came to Cannes yesterday, thanks to a pair of films set in Italy exploring lives of affluent ennui. Paolo Sorrentino's The Great Beauty and Valeria Bruni Tedeschi's A Castle In Italy feature wealthy characters whose lives have an emptiness at their centre.
