Without a doubt, Williams has managed to turn heads and light up a room with her presence for decades but her secrets have helped her age gracefully.

The 52-year old believes staying in shape and maintaining beauty is simple!

“Just eating as clean as you possibly can when you have a goal to attain,” she told ABC News. “If I wanted to drop a few pounds for any kind of event or red carpet, you cut out alcohol, you cut out sugar, you cut out carbs.”

Makeup may hide a few blemishes, but natural beauty requires dedication.

“Juicing, hot water and lemon — those are all great cleansers to keep you hydrated … now a days it’s so easy to get organic products. whether they are seaweed snacks or anything,” the beauty queen shares.

Eating clean goes hand and hand with fitness so Vanessa also shares that she kicks butt in the gym on a daily!

“I try to do something everyday, whether it’s taking a class or jumping on the treadmill,” she said. “Also, yoga, just trying to keep moving for sure.”
