Kim Kardashian, Beyoncé, and Jennifer Aniston are just some of today's stars who have paid homage to timeless icons like Cher, Tina Turner, and Barbra Streisand. But the thing is, these stars are still around — and despite the fashion industry's ageism, they're still slaying their own covers.

Just look at these stars' early magazine covers compared to their last to see how they still work it.

From creating an entirely new pose to advocating for higher pay, Lauren Hutton was a trailblazer as one of the first supermodels.

After having trouble posing, photographer Richard Avedon told her to pretend to jump over snakes, which the outdoorsy Hutton enjoyed doing. "That started the run-and-jump pictures…because I couldn't model," Hutton explained, according to Elle

Beyond posing, Hutton fought for for models to get higher pay, and after getting Revlon's first model contract, she received a whopping $400,000. Throughout her career, she's appeared on the cover of Vogue over 20 times, including the February 1967 cover above. 

73-year-old Hutton is showing no signs of stopping. She recently covered Vogue Italia's October 2017 issue for women over 60.

Hutton has starred in a recent Calvin Klein underwear campaign and walked hand-in-hand with Gigi Hadid for the Bottega Veneta Spring 2017 runway show. She's proven models of all ages can sport a variety of styles!

As one of the industry's most prominent Black models, Iman broke down many barriers for other models of color.

Pictured here in the March 1982 issue of Cosmopolitan Germany, Iman has hit every major high fashion runway. Her biggest career moment arrived when she became Yves Saint Laurent's muse for his "African Queen" collection, according to Biography.

This year, 62-year-old Iman appeared on LOVE magazine's Autumn/Winter 2017 cover. Although she's mostly retired from modeling, her widely successfully IMAN cosmetics line has put her in mogul territory.

She also still believes in paying it forward and creating opportunities for other models of color. “When a model of color was booked [in my day], it meant that it would be that much easier for another model of color to be booked...Look out for one another: Take your seat at the table and think about the bigger picture of what you’re contributing to,” she said, according to Vogue

Beyond modeling, she's been widely regarded for her philanthropy. Iman really does it all! 

One of the earliest models to become a household name, Twiggy had THE look of the 1960s.

If Gigi, Kendall, and Bella combined forces, they'd still come up short compared to Twiggy's global takeover. She inspired a completely new way of dressing with her cropped hair and large eyes, making her one of the key figures of the mod style. 

At 60, Twiggy appeared on the cover of i-D's March 2009 issue.

Today she's an animal rights activist and is still sometimes featured in ad campaigns for brands such as Olay. Most recently, she appeared on Woman & Home's June 2016 issue, at 66 years old. 

Model Christie Brinkley, who has been a regular in Sports Illustrated, first appeared on the cover in 1979.

Since then, she's starred in the issue nine times and been on the cover for three of those, noted Bustle. She's also the ONLY model to appear on the cover back-to-back three times

In 2017, she posed again for the magazine, this time with her daughters.

Most recently, 62-year-old Brinkley appeared on Philadelphia Style for its Winter 2016 issue.

Like many models, Brinkley's extended her modeling career into other ventures, including her own skin care line

Carmen Dell'Orefice appeared on the cover of Vogue in 1947 at just 15 years old.

A former ballerina and swimmer, Dell'Orefice didn't plan on being a model. She came from humble beginnings: Her mother was a Hungarian immigrant, and Dell'Orefice didn't have much education, but she persevered. 

"I was brought to Condé Nast through a staff writer called Carol Phillips who ultimately became the president of Clinique. I was 13, I think, when my first pictures were taken and 14 when they were published," she told Harper's Bazaar. From there, she built relationships with those in the industry and her career took off. 

86-year-old Dell'Orefice is still working to this day. She has starred in countless campaigns and walked many famous runways.

Dell'Orefice covered L'Officiel's Australia's July/August 2015 cover at the age of 84 years old. “I have had more magazine covers in the last 25 years than I have in my whole elongated career,” Dell’Orefice said to New You magazine when she starred on its Spring 2015 cover at 83 years old. “Today I am in a territory that business considers unmarketable: age and white hair. Slowly, however, I started to own that territory little by little because I stood up for age.”

Before becoming the badass Oscar-winning actress she is today, Jane Fonda was a model.

Seen here on the cover of July 1959 Glamour, Fonda got her start as a model and posed for legendary publications such as Life and Vogue. When she eventually began her film career, she was known for her bold sex appeal and her activism.

79-year-old Fonda went unretouched for Town and Country's November 2017 cover.

It's rare to find a magazine cover that's unretouched, especially when it features an older star, but Fonda has always been fearless! From wearing a dramatic ponytail on the red carpet to slaying on the L'Oreal runway, Fonda isn't afraid of breaking ageist style rules. 

In 1966, actress Sophia Loren was on the cover on Life magazine.

Although Loren is best-known for being an icon of mid-century beauty, that wasn't the case as a  child. She wasn't viewed as beautiful and lived in poverty due to World War II. After surviving the war and becoming an actress, Loren eventually became a household name for her work in Italian film. 

Decades later and in her 80s, Loren continues to front ad campaigns and walk red carpets. She even posed for Vogue Germany in October 2005 at the age of 71 years old.

From Loren's signature winged eye to her full curls, she was the symbol of femininity for years. Countless celebrities and models have portrayed the actress' famed look, like Emily Ratajkowski for Allure. But in 2016, Loren was the face of Dolce & Gabbana's Dolce Rosa Excelsa perfume, showing that Loren can — and will — always be the queen of the screen. 

When Sigourney Weaver starred in the sci-fi thriller "Aliens," Time put her on a July 1986 cover.

Although Weaver's family was already in the business, she had a challenging childhood — her own mother didn't think she was beautiful. In spite of that, Weaver eventually went into acting after attending Yale Drama School and becoming besties with Meryl Streep. 

Today, Weaver STILL wins at the box office and fronts magazines covers.

Weaver covered a Life December 2009 cover at 60 years old (above) and most recently a V Magazine Winter 2010/2011 issue at 61 years old. She's also since starred in "Avatar," "Ghostbusters" and "Holes," in case you need an idea of how influential she's been in film. 

According to IMDB, Weaver's listed for "Avatar" films until 2025, so she's definitely proving women of all ages can have a lasting career in action films. 

Sally Field covered Playboy in March 1986.

Although she struggled with being typecast after starring in "The Flying Nun" television series, Field went on to win two Oscars during her career for "Places in the Heart" and "Norma Rae." 

Field also covered AARP magazine's April/May 2016 issue at 69 years old.

Field still stars in mainstream films, like "The Amazing Spider-man" series as Aunt May or her role as in "Lincoln" as the president's wife, which got her another Oscar nomination.

A icon within "Blaxploitation" films, Pam Grier's characters promoted girl power to a global audience.

Known for kicking butt, Grier portrayed bold characters in 1970s-era films such as "Coffy" and "Foxy Brown" (which is being remade with Meagan Good).

Basically a living legend, Grier posed for JET magazine in July 2010 at 61 years old. Today, Grier is vocal in her support of films that portray strong and dynamic women.

Grier's career helped break norms of what women should do onscreen. "I don't know why people were surprised at the success of Wonder Woman," Grier said to USA Today. "I applaud them, I want them to succeed...I started it. I don't want them to fail." 

Oscar-winning actress Diane Keaton is known for her role in "Annie Hall," but she also makes waves on red carpets..

Her bold suits and androgynous style of dressing has set her apart over the years. As seen here on the 1977 cover of Time, Keaton's look has been distinct for decades! 

Diane Keaton posed for Stella Magazine at 71 years old.

Today Diane Keaton still stars in romantic comedies like "Something's Gotta Give" and "Because I Said So," showing that women of all ages deserve a variety of roles. 

Back in September 1981, Meryl Streep covered an issue of Time.

During her career, Streep has played everything from a fierce editor to a nun to a prime minister, showing that women of all ages CAN have long and successful careers in Hollywood, and don't have to play supporting characters to do it.

68-year-old Streep covered Vogue's December 2017 issue.

Streep has won three Oscars, has been nominated for the award 19 times (more than any other actress), and also has a Presidential Medal of Freedom, a Kennedy Center Honor, and an honorary doctorate from Harvard. 

Cicely Tyson, another acting legend, got her start as a model.

Tyson had started her acting career when she got the Ebony 1962 cover above. She's best-known for her roles as Binta in "Roots," Jane Pittman in "The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman," and Rebecca in "Sounder," for which she was nominated for an Oscar.

92-year-old Tyson most recently appeared on one of eight covers of November 2017 Elle magazine.

Although Tyson's birth year is somewhat uncertain, her successful career is undisputed. She's received a Presidential Medal of Freedom, a Kennedy Center Honor, and multiple Emmy awards. 

Before there was Beyoncé, there was Tina Turner.

She covered Ebony in 1971, and was known for her bold stage presence and fierce outfits, which many performers mimic to this day. 

At the age of 73, Turner made history when she covered Vogue Germany in April 2013.

At the time, she was the oldest person to EVER cover Vogue, according to Fashionista. It's unclear if she's the oldest person to cover Vogue Germany or any international title in general, but regardless, it's amazing! 

Barbra Streisand, whose name alone speaks volumes, covered Vogue in 1966.

From getting the coveted EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony) to the Presidential Medal of Freedom, Streisand's career is incomparable. 

AT 74 years old, Streisand slayed on the cover of W's December 2016 issue, showing that women of all ages can be sexy.

Cher, who continuously slays onstage, covered Time Magazine in 1975.

Like Turner and Tyson, Cher also had a tough childhood, but persevered to become the musical icon she is today. Many stars have portrayed her, including Kim Kardashian for Harper's Bazaar Arabia! 

At 69 years old, Cher covered LOVE's fall/winter 2015 issue.

From her relentless clap backs on Twitter to her ad campaigns for Marc Jacobs and Gap, Cher has shown you can be a rockstar at any age. 

It's important to see women of all ages in mainstream media, because it shows how diverse beauty can (and should) be.

These women have been showstoppers within their respective fields and broken many barriers. It's always great when younger stars honor them through editorials, but it's vital that the ACTUAL stars still get the equal opportunity to show off their looks. 

Hopefully, choosing older women for magazine covers will be a mainstay rather than a trend.
