Eighties music icon Kim Wilde dazzled her social media followers with a stunning selfie as she waved goodbye to her 50s and embarked on a new chapter in her life.
Kim Wilde is best known as one of the biggest stars of the 1980s. The pop songstress turned her back on her musical career and instead opted to turn her fingers green, taking up a life of gardening before eventually returning to music in 2018.
Kim, 60, who is heading out across the country on a Greatest Hits Tour in 2021 left her followers speechless after taking to her Twitter page to flaunt her seemingly ageless beauty. The BRIT Award-winning star was in her element as she reflected on the past decade of her life.
Going makeup-free, Kim oozed natural beauty as she held her iPhone above her for a stunning snap. The blonde bombshell wore her signature tresses in voluminous loose natural waves, flowing freely before resting on her shoulders. Kim gazed into the camera lens with her oceanic blue peppers shining through. The You Keep Me Hangin’ On hitmaker offered a cheeky pout towards the camera before captioning her post: “Goodbye 50’s, you were good to me, but guess what 60’s… I’m coming for ya!”
Her snap which has raked in almost 19,000 likes was instantly inundated with compliments from celebrity pals and adoring fans. “60 is the new 40!” penned one. “Happy sixtieth birthday to you who have been in my life & my heart for almost 40 years… May this new decade be as beautiful & wild as the previous ones. Lots of love,” gushed a second. A third went on to say: “Happy Birthday Kim… That’s a fab photo! You’re a true beauty.”
“Dear Kim happy fabulous birthday… You’re always beautiful,” gushed a fourth. Kim has sold over 30 million records across the world and at one point sold over 60,000 copies of Kids In America per day. Speaking about her success but missing out on a UK number one, Kim said: “Although having a No 1 in America almost made up for it.”
