Greatly depends on the person (and their gender, as you said).Extra weight. Being thin, as you age, makes you look old and haggard. This is especially true for women.
As my mother often pointed out, somewhat crudely: by a certain age, you’ll have to chose between your **** or your face. Ugh.
Some people seem to belong to a thin, slightly less sexually dimorphic phenotype within which being thin actually makes them look younger.
Look at guys like David Bowie, DK Yoo, Muhammad Ali even. They're naturally thin (low-ish BF%) and look younger and better for it.
