Many mature women would envy Masako Mizutani.
How many women at the age of 45 could still look half their age and reign as a celebrity model with a growing fan base?
The Japanese fashion magazine model has not lost her youthful beauty and girlish charm as she entered middle-age. Those in the fashion and beauty world praise her "goddess-like appearance" and smart style while more women outside Japan look up to her as their beauty guru.
Mizutani was actually a simple Nagoya housewife with two kids before fame changed her life several years ago. She took part in a fashion magazine contest which was looking for models. She won and became a big hit after she appeared on a TV show to share her beauty secrets.
Mizutani's popularity continued to soar after she was featured on a Taiwanese news site. As she gained more fans, her Chinese-fan blog has reached over 10,000 followers, while she has received nearly 20,000 likes on her Facebook today.
And beauty and fashion establishments are quick to notice her rise. Asahi has roped her in to star in their commercial on their collagen products for women. Take a look at the photos of this Japanese Lady of Eternal Youth below.
