The 56-year-old representative from Minnesota has ranked #10 on "The Hill's 50 Most Beautiful People," an unscientific list of attractive D.C. dwellers compiled by The Hill. A news source written for and about D.C.'s policy influencers, The Hill has compiled its ninth annual "hot" list filled with 20- and 30-somethings, idealistic young'uns with smooth faces and nary a gray hair (yet).
The Hill points out that during her run at the Republican presidential nomination, Bachmann upped her style game with her impossibly bouncy hair, the clickity-clack fake nails and the intense makeup (done, the Hill notes, by Fox News Channel makeup artist Tamara Robertson).
But Bachmann is not the only over-40 face on The Hill's Most Beautiful list. 65-year-old Rep. Bobby Scott (D-Va.), 62-year-old Ron LeGrand and Jessica Imotichey, born "in the early to mid-1970s," all get a nod.
