Connie Francis, who recently celebrated her 86th birthday, says she wants to be remembered “for the depths I have come.”

Connie Francis, a former teen pop singer, is now 85 years old, and her face bears the signs of age and despair. Nonetheless, her lush lips are as stunning today as in 1958 when she sang “Who’s Sorry Now?”

Francis, born in Newark, New Jersey, and stood 1.56 m tall, was known for always wearing false eyelashes and stiletto heels.

Francis looked magnificent on her 85th birthday, which she celebrated with “the largest gathering of lifetime friends and those closest to me.”
