Geena might not be a Victoria's Secret model anymore, but she says she feels more confident and more beautiful than she did 30 years ago.

"I had crippling self-esteem problems when I was younger," she says. "I had a good friend who was also a model and had horrible self-esteem, and we decided that we would finally realize that we were attractive at the exact moment that we weren't anymore."

Thankfully, that's not the case! Geena says that over the years, her confidence and self esteem have improved. "It's just 100 percent different," she says.

Diahann says that as she's gotten older, she's learned patience and serenity...thanks to her daughter and grandchildren. "I love the way [my daughter] wants me to be a part of her children's lives," she says. "It has reaffirmed for me something that makes me more calm."

At 65, Nora jokes that she enjoys not having to shave her legs as often, but she says the best thing about getting older is learning to appreciate life. "The good news is I'm here and I love everything!"
