Candice Bergen: Timeless Chic

Candice Bergen is one actress who has aged gracefully.  After seeing these photos from the late 1960's and early 1970's, it's easy to see why.  She grew up in Beverly Hills, California with a model mother and her father Edgar Bergen who was an actor, comedian, and ventriloquist. Candice also modeled for high fashion magazines like Vogue while also pursuing an acting career.  She starred in her second film The Sand Pebbles with Steve McQueen.  Of course, most people these know her from Murphy Brown and Sex and the City.  It's too bad that today's young actresses don't look this wholesome and timeless. Enjoy!
