One of the undisputed queens of the screen, Angela Bassett is also a reigning champ of jumpsuits! At the “Black Panther” premiere in 2018, Bassett channeled her roots for an African-inspired yellow jumpsuit. Comprised of almost entirely tassels, the one-piece also featured a large collar – an ode to traditional African neckpieces worn across the continent.
Given that her jewelry, hair, and shoes were all on the larger side, you’d expect this look to drown out the wearer. That is unless the wearer is Angela Bassett, whose confidence and personality are big enough to control any look.
Lucy Liu - 2019 Tony Awards
Dubbed "The Loofah Dress," Lucy Liu's purple look at the 2019 Tony awards was definitely a show-stopper. Liu is, bewilderingly, over 50, but age is clearly just a number in this case.
Wearing Christian Siriano, the "Charlie's Angel" star sported minimal makeup, because when you age as gracefully as Lucy Liu, you don't feel the need to slather on a full glam look. Liu topped off the look by accessorizing with green earrings and a matching purse.
Sigourney Weaver - 2020 Oscars
In 2020, then-70-year-old Sigourney Weaver rocked the Oscars red carpet in a green Dior dress that stunned everyone. The dress itself wasn't overly-flashy, nor did Weaver adorn herself with jewelry. She didn't even sport a crazy makeup look!
All she did was stick to the color that compliments her best, accentuate her natural features (not hide them), and throw on some classy earrings and a bracelet. Weaver radiates confidence, and that's the only glow she needs!
Sarah Jessica Parker - 2015 NYC Ballet Fall Gala
If we were invited to the NYC Ballet Fall Gala, we'd likely pass out. The event sounds like the bougiest event ever, so what could we even wear? Luckily, we can take our cue from SJP. The "Sex and the City" star apparently decided that just because she had turned 50, that didn't mean she needed to slow down slaying the red carpet.
So, she opted for this glitzy silver Zuhair Murad dress, got a smokey eye look that made her blue peepers pop, and threw her hair into a ballet bun (kidding, that probably took hours).
Jessica Lange - 2010 Golden Globes
Whether it's in "A Streetcar Named Desire" or "American Horror Story," Lange's almost six-decades-long career has something for everyone. And with over 50 years in the industry, that's a lot of red carpets to walk. Lange often opts for black ensembles, so this silver number for the 2010 Golden Globes was an exciting departure from her norm.
She turned to Zac Posen for this silver crepe-fabric dress, which she paired with a matching silver clutch, and complimenting eye-shadow. Even though this look was over a decade ago, it still remains one of Lange's most iconic.
