Former beauty queen Margaret Gardiner is ageing like fine wine. The LA-based fashion editor is one of the most stylish women on the planet. 

Margaret ignores all the fashion rules when it comes to what society deems as acceptable for her generation. Women over 50 shouldn't wear short shorts? Women over 50 shouldn't wear mini skirts and dresses?

Margaret couldn't care less! She wears whatever she wants and looks damn good while she is at it. The 62-year-old is making her own rules along with stars such as Jennifer Lopez, Connie Ferguson, Halle Berry, and Kris Jenner. 

The former Miss South Africa winner spends a lot of time on the red carpet. She is a fashion editor for the Golden Globes. 

Margaret also works as a print and TV reporter and has interviewed some of the biggest names in showbiz. She has crossed paths with stars such as 'Spider-Man' star Tom Holland, Dakota Johnson, Matt Damon, and Kristen Stewart.
