Silver Fox and Grandma, What Massive Hotness You Have! have been merged (see TRS). Silver Fox is the trope that stays; Silver Vixen is a redirect.

Could we get a new collage with women in there, too, so that it's clear that this is a gender-neutral trope?

Previous thread. The first choice that immediately comes to mind is Helen Mirren. Having a damned hard time finding an equivalent character in a work, though...maybe Anna Twombly from Littlest Pet Shop (2012)?

Helen Miren is a great example. I remember one previous page image of her lying near her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, that one was awesome (but sadly also a real life photo).

I was thinking Jane Seymour, for example as the cougar from that one HIMYM episode. But she doesn't look that old to be honest.

[up] That's the problem I'm running into - I'm finding pics of attractive older female characters, but they're not visibly aged to the point that their hair is gray or silver.

Since the tropes are merged now, I think the silver hair should no longer be a requirement and the description adjusted because most women dye...

Though grey hair is a great visual shorthand.

Perhaps Miranda from The Devil Wears Prada? The trope description says that these are characters over 40, so I think she fits in this respect.


Previous threads for Grandma, What Massive Hotness You Have!:

This is the Helen Mirren pic I talked about earlier: https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/grandma-what-massive-hotness-you-have_hellen-mirren_8756.jpg

Something like this (but from a work of fiction) would be great.

Perhaps this? The red lipstick helps.

And this is from the image links subpage.

They might work in a collage.

I like it, but at the same time I wonder if we need four panels of live-action characters or if just two will suffice.

Id rather have four. Two images works, but a collage of only 2 examples just feels awkward.

[up][up] The second pic, combined with male and female examples from some other media, would be good.

The current has a rather good animated male example. The caption says it's from Overlord (2012).

And here is a female example from Image Links. I don't love it, but I like that it's a woman and that it's another medium (some video game, I presume).

[up] The bottom row is good, but I think Meryl Streep and The Most Interesting Man work better than Cable and whoever she is.

The problem with this Meryl Streep example is that it's difficult to see her age on this photo. I actually prefer the Helen Mirren example. As for the animated examples, 23 is really good. As for the male live action example, any of 17, 21, and 23 are good, but I prefer the last one from 17.
