Femmes burnish their images

Art and women over 40 were the themes for the night

It was femme power all around at Monday’s 40 Fabulous Faces benefit tied into “Menopause the Musical.”

Thesps of a certain age turned out to the Falcon courtyard, where their self-portraits were unveiled. Eventgoers ogled the actresses as much as the art.

“I think women over 40 might be an underused natural resource,” Lea Thompson said. “We’re really at the peak of our game.”

“We need more of European mentality where women are valued for wisdom and experience — and looking great,” JoBeth Williams said.

Proceeds from the sales will benefit Cedars-Sinai Women’s Health Resource Center and a charity of the artist’s choice.
