Best Dressed Female Celebs Over 50
Looking back on the year 2013, the best dressed actresses over age 50 looked anything but vintage. From fashion statements that ranged from modern, adventurous, provocative to classic, these ladies stood out on this year’s red carpets, often outshining their younger counterparts. We round up a list of the stellar and stylish standouts of the year that prove that when it comes to age and fashion, these legends still can command our attention.
Sally Field, 67
The actress made a fiery statement in a red Valentino gown at this year’s Oscar ceremony, putting to rest any fashion myths that say older women should not wear head-to-toe bold colours.
Meryl Streep, 64
The Oscar winner not only shimmered and shined in a glittering sequined gown but also boldly showed some skin in a plunging — but tasteful — neckline.
Emma Thompson, 54
The actress — and current Zoomer Magazine cover subject — had a banner year of super stylish outfits. But we loved her choice of going with gusto for graphic prints with this optical illusion Alexander McQueen dress.
Julianne Moore, 53
Sometimes, simplicity can make the most striking statement. Here, without relying on big jewels or embellishment, the flamed haired beauty looks stunning in a simple white gown, looking every inch the goddess she is.
Diahann Carroll, 78
Some older women feel more comfortable covering their arms in evening wear. This legendary actress does it without resorting to matronly shawls, but instead opted for a slightly sheer top that both covered and offered some sexy appeal.
Andie MacDowell, 55
While some women might avoid flesh tones and nude colours because they can make one look washed out, here, the actress positively glows in the palest of shades with the right amount of embellishment.
Raquel Welch, 73
The bombshell actress showed off her curves in a figure-hugging siren red gown, proving that you can be a septuagenarian and still be sexy.
Sharon Stone, 55
At this year’s Marrakech Film Festival, the actress bewitched the crowd in a floor length inky black cape and a gown that daringly showed some cleavage.
Emmanuelle Riva, 86
The actress showed the world why French women ooze grace, elegance and panache, when she walked the red carpet at this year’s Oscar in a simple gown, in an unexpected evening wear colour — bluish green.
Jane Fonda, 76
You would think that a gown with slits and cutouts would be more suitable for young starlets but here, Fonda proves if you have the body and confidence, then you should go ahead and flaunt it — tastefully, of course.
Kim Basinger, 60
For the premier of her latest movie, Grudge Match, the actress made the unexpected red carpet choice by going for a menswear look — banker pinstripes, complete with vest and tie — and looked dynamite and sexy.
