Best Dressed Zoomers of 2015
From a 91-year-old actress to a transgendered person, our roundup of the best-dressed Zoomers of this year proved that when it comes to modern style, they can be rule-breakers.
- JANE FONDA, 78
- SOPHIA LOREN, 81
Attending the National Arts Awards in September, the legendary Italian actress was a picture of sophisticated glamour, decked out in a black lace gown – in her signature plunging neckline – and diamond earrings and choker. The actress once said she thought the word “retire” was terrible, and she’s not ready to call it quits yet. Perhaps that’s what gives her that eternally luminescent glow.
- VIOLA DAVIS, 50
A simple black halter top and rich jewel-coloured skirt proved to be a winning look for the actress from How to Get Away with Murder. It also highlights the actress’s toned arms and shoulders on the red carpet in November at the 2015 Glamour Women of the Year Awards in New York.
- CAITLYN JENNER, 66
For someone who only started walking red carpets in gowns and high heels for the first time a few months ago, the television personality, formerly known as Olympian Bruce Jenner, has been knocking it out of the park style-wise. Sticking to simple – not too overly embellished or overtly sexy like her famous stepdaughters – Jenner is keeping it classic but yet quietly becoming a fashion star.
- CHRISTINE BARANSKI, 63
This Emmy and Tony Award-winning actress tends to stick to classic and simple shapes when it comes to her red carpet gowns. But the shocking pink she wore at this year’s Emmy Awards makes it an arresting and stand-out look – and also proves that age should not be a deterrent when it comes to wearing a bold colour. Just make it a singular statement.
- JULIA LOUIS-DREYFUS, 54
A simple and plain black gown can run the risk of playing it too safe on a red carpet. But with a sharp architectural neckline, some serious Chopard bling and this four-time Emmy Award winning actress commands a striking presence at this year’s Emmy Awards.
- CATE BLANCHETT, 46
This style queen can do no wrong when it comes to dressing for the red carpet and has her pick of some of the most esteemed fashion labels who are more than willing to dress her. But for the London premiere of her movie, Carol, back in October, she opts for the lesser-known Esteban Cortázar, whose caped sleeve and shimmering gown is a smash hit.
- SUSAN SARANDON, 69
The actress might be approaching her seventh decade – but she shows she still have ample sex appeal. At an awards show in Hamburg back in February, the actress showed how you to do sexy without being trashy. A thigh-high slit in her gown that didn’t look vulgar and fishnets with open-toed heels added some feminine allure.
- CICELY TYSON, 91
This Tony and Emmy Award-winning actress deserves an award just for her incredible skin, seemingly preserved at her incredible age. But she also packs a fantastic fashion sense, showing up at an Elton John AIDS Foundation benefit in New York this past November in a ball gown with a dramatic short jacket in luscious lavender.
- JULIANNE MOORE, 55
Always a fashion star on any red carpet she walks, the actress managed to outdo herself this year at the Cannes Film Festival by wearing a custom-made Givenchy gown in ruby-red velvet. An unconventional choice for a red-head, but this beauty is also known for breaking style rules.
- IMAN, 60.
Of course the legendary supermodel and beauty mogul would know a thing or two about fashion, considering she has worked with some of the best designers in the world. For the one-piece jumpsuit she wore to the Glamour Magazine Women of the Year Awards in November, she added an over-sized puff sleeve shrug that added some drama to her understated look.
