If you don’t recognize this lady, you’re not a 70s babe like some of the rest of us. Her name is Agnetha Fältskog, and she was a singer with ABBA.

Pop stars: Mick Jagger

OK so Mick Jagger shows his age, but hey you would, too, if you partied like a rock star. I mean, the phrase was practically invented for him. And don’t hate. He’s still performing. And he was so adorbs when he was a young lad.

There’s way too much sadness on this list, but so bittersweet. We loved them so much, including this adorable little Amy Winehouse.

They’re all beautiful, and those who aged have done so very well. However, for those who didn’t live long enough to age, we know they would have always been beautiful. They’re missed!
