The Strictly Come Dancing star - who will turn 50 next January - has said she is embracing her maturity and is content to have a body she compares to that of the 73-year-old Bat Out Of Hell rocker.
Winkleman told Woman & Home magazine: "I can't wait to be 50. I wanted a crochet set for my 21st. I can't wait to get old!
"I didn't like my 20s, I'd be the one in a nightclub going, 'Guys, I'm not sure this is safe.' I like bridge, I like a heavy-tog duvet, I love a roast and reading books. This is my time.
"My body is falling apart, I look like Meat Loaf naked and I'm alright with that!'
And it seems aging rockers are very much the style inspiration for the TV presenter - who is famous for her 'Panda eye' signature thick dark make-up.
She said: "I want to look like Gene Simmons or Alice Cooper, so it's not like I want to look young and bouncy and fresh."
And though the former Great British Sewing Bee host has been trolled on social media for her heavy use of fake tan - she insisted that she aspires to look like a "solid piece" of terracotta.
Winkleman - whose mother is the journalist and writer Eve Pollard - confided: "There was a product called Ultra Glow and it was a pat of just brown, just like a solid piece of something that could make you teak.
"My mum used it and I've always forever been in love with, I think it's Guerlain, it's called Terracotta, it's an unbelievable product, the powder.
"I just put some on my face and suddenly felt – it's a big word but I'm going to say it – alive. That was it, that was my love affair."
