'Better is something you become' Being fabulous at any age sounds marvellous, don't you agree? It means you have the freedom of choice to be an amazing, fun, spirited woman at any stage of your life – whether you're 40, 50, 60, or older – and one who makes a lasting and uplifting impression on anyone you meet.

However, there’s no denying Helen, 74, commands attention when she speaks. When discussing her role as Russian empress Catherine the Great, she’s not afraid to set us straight about the fascinating royal when we suggest Catherine was distracted by men. “No,” Helen interrupts. “That’s wrong.
