The beautiful summer weather has brought out it's fair share of PYT's. But what's really stood out to XXL staff lately is the growing number of beautiful older women that are strutting out and about NYC. These days, the modern woman can take of herself in ways that slow the aging process; But some women seem to have been blessed with a gene that stops the process altogether. From Gabrielle Union, who is playing cougar to recent NBA champion Dwyane Wade, to Stacey Dash, who's somehow gotten hotter by the decade, the older berries (Hey, Halle) are proving to have some of the sweetest juice. XXL picked a few of planet's finest mature ladies to show that some women only ripen with time. — XXL Staff (@xxl)
