** Lady Olenna regales Margaery with how she seduced her future husband away from his betrothed, claiming she was "very, ''very'', good." This doubles as an ActorAllusion for anyone who's seen Dianna Rigg in ''Series/TheAvengers'' or ''Film/OnHerMajestysSecretService''.

** Judging what Uncle Ben looks like in the same pic above, he was quite the tall glass of sexy, something that May herself pointed out when she first saw him.

* Howard's mother, Mrs. Wolowitz from ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'' had never appears on screen, but she's described as an overweight women with facial hair. She told Sheldon tearfully that she was quite a looker when she was young as men would wait in line showering her with gifts of candies (which she ate them all). Additionally, it's implied several times that menopause has been ''really'' hard on her; that would explain the facial hair, and at least one episode has her using estrogen cream.

* In Creator/AngelaCarter's ''Wise Children'', the protagonist and her sister are former dancers who used to have a lot of lovers, now aged; they're determined to defy this trope. When invited to a family reunion, they're nervous about going, fearing that people will pity the decay of their looks; but they dress up showily in a manner that emphasizes their best points (legs last well) and walk in boldly, not sure if the effect is ridiculous or fabulous; some reactions, at least, prove that the latter is the case.

** House Lannister has precedent of of this, if Cersei bothered to pay attention. Her aunt, Genna, was renowned as being the [[UglyGuyHotWife gracefully Hot Wife in her badly lopsided arranged marriage]] before she "mellowed" into her IronLady, LargeAndInCharge, BigBeautifulWoman self today. Although still not painful on the eyes, she's not a relatively willowy sixteen anymore -- and, proud of it!
