60-Year-Old Woman Qualifies for Miss Argentina Contest Thanks to Shockingly Youthful Looks

Alejandra Marisa Rodríguez, a 60-year-old lawyer and journalist from Buenos Aires, recently won the title of Miss Buenos Aires and qualified for the Miss Argentina beauty pageant.

At the end of last year, the Miss Universe beauty contest became more inclusive by eliminating an age limit that had been enforced since 1958. Starting this year, the competition is no longer limited to women between the ages of 18 and 28. Instead, the rules only mention that contestants must be of legal age to participate, which opened the door for many more mature hopefuls, including a stunningly youthful-looking 60-year-old woman from Buenos Aires, Argentina. Alejandra Marisa Rodríguez recently went viral on Latino social media after winning the Miss Buenos Aires title despite competing against dozens of much younger women.

“I am very excited and honored to have won the Miss Buenos Aires 2024 title. I want to show all women that beauty has no age and that we can break barriers,” Rodríguez said on stage. “I trained physically, worked on my confidence, and improved my skills on stage. I wanted to show that female empowerment has no limits.”

The 60-year-old woman’s youthful looks have already sparked a heated online debate around her age, with many declaring themselves shocked that the woman is a day over 40, and others claiming that she actually has a good chance in the next stage in the race for Miss Universe, the Miss Argentina pageant. The contest will take place on May 25, and will feature candidates from the other Argentinian territories.

Speaking about her looks and how she manages to look so good at her age, Alejandra Marisa Rodríguez said that she works out three times per week, practices intermittent fasting, and tries to eat as healthy as possible, while also using good skin creams. Rodríguez, who is divorced and single, joked that her single status may have contributed to her success in the recent pageant.

“I think the judges saw my confidence and my passion to represent the women of my generation. I am determined to fight for the crown of Miss Universe Argentina 2024,” the 60-year-old said. “Beauty has no expiration date, to be beautiful you just need to trust yourself and be authentic.”


Alejandra’s youthful appearance reminded us of another famous “god of eternal youth”, Chuando Tan, a former male model who looks better in his 50s than most people do in their 20s and 30s.
