Today marks the start of another fabulous year for the always-gorgeous Elizabeth Hurley. Through the decades, the now 51-year-old has lived a fast-paced lifestyle, landing her first-ever modeling job as a spokesmodel for Estée Lauder at the age of 29. As an actress, she’s known for having starred in Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery, Extreme Measures, and Mickey Blue Eyes. More recently, Hurley’s been flexing her acting muscles for television. In the American TV series drama, The Royals, Hurley plays the starring role as Queen Helena of England—and she looks dang good while doing it.
