ELLE MACPHERSON

We’ll have what she’s hav­ing – it’s not hard to see how 55-year-old Elle Macpherson’s age-de­fy­ing looks have pro­pelled a global well­ness brand. The su­per­model’s rit­u­als in­clude meditation, be­gin­ning her day with a glass of hot wa­ter and le­mon to kick­start her metabolism, and a daily dose of greens. A strict rou­tine of high-in­ten­sity train­ing may have ap­plied when The Body ruled the run­ways in the ’80s, but now she mixes it up with ocean swims, a stroll on the sand, yoga or a box­ing class. For the record, you can have what she’s hav­ing: cult prod­uct Welleco Su­per Elixir.

SO­NIA KRUGER

At 53, the co-host of Nine Net­work’s morn­ing show To­day Ex­tra never seems to age a day. While she’s been re­ported as say­ing it’s in­ter­est­ing ev­ery ar­ti­cle she reads about her is pre­ceded by her age, she chooses to take that as a com­pli­ment “be­cause they can’t be­lieve I’m ac­tu­ally that age, and nor can I”. While her back­ground in com­pet­i­tive dance can’t hurt, So­nia has a re­fresh­ingly re­al­is­tic at­ti­tude to diet and ex­er­cise. She has a per­sonal trainer and fo­cuses on re­sis­tance train­ing when she gets in the gym, in­clud­ing pull-downs, pull-ups and push-ups. The low-main­te­nance mother of one says she rarely puts make-up on when she’s not work­ing.

KEANU REEVES

Keanu’s time-stalled looks have spawned a raft of in­ter­net con­spir­a­cies, with web­sites de­voted to ex­pos­ing the 54-year-old ac­tor’s al­leged im­mor­tal­ity. His se­crets are likely more sen­si­ble than su­per­nat­u­ral. He eats sim­ple, por­tion-con­trolled meals and stays ac­tive in nat­u­ral ways, whether that’s play­ing bas­ket­ball or prac­tis­ing the kung fu he learnt for his role in The Ma­trix.
