Making a name for yourself as a Bond girl comes with lifelong pressure to live up to that title. It’s unfair, certainly, but that’s the reality of showbiz. While many have fallen to public scrutiny over losing their looks as they age (we know, how dare women not look the same today as they did in the 80s?), Monica Bellucci has remained unscathed.
Bellucci wore a floor-length, long-sleeve gown. It also happened to be firetruck red, have a deep V-neckline, and come with a CAPE. If anyone is confident in living up to their title, it’s Bellucci.
Renée Elise Goldsberry - 2021 Gotham Awards
Despite the fact that the 30th Annual Gotham Awards had a virtual ceremony, celebs still put their best feet forward, including "Hamilton" star Renée Elise Goldsberry. Wearing a daring look from Naeem Khan, the actress turned heads (albeit virtually) in this sparkly red jumpsuit with a plunging neckline.
Given that Goldsberry was 51 here, it's pretty impressive to see she doesn't look a day outside of her 20s.
Michelle Pfeiffer - 2017 Venice Film Festival
Attending the premiere of her movie, "Mother!," a then-59-year-old Michelle Pfeiffer showed everyone that despite taking a Hollywood hiatus to focus on her family, the actress is still very much a class act. In this relatively rare red carpet appearance, Pfeiffer wore a fitted gold and black chainmail dress and boasted tousled locks and a smokey eye.
At just shy of 60 at the time, the actress not only proved you can get back into your career later in life, but you can look glamorous doing it.
Laura Dern - 2020 Golden Globes
Laura Dern was up for a Golden Globe at the 2020 awards, and while she's received multiple nominations, she clearly had a feeling that this one was going to go well - so she dressed the part. Wearing Saint Laurent, Dern channeled her inner bohemian goddess and stole the show in this black gown with a golden printed design.
Her main accessory was the matching Golden Globe award she took home that night - pretty hard to come by, but it definitely pulls an outfit together!
Cindy Crawford - 2017 Vogue Italia Party
Milan Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2018 made headlines for the best reasons. As part of the Versace show, Donatella Versace walked out with five of the biggest supermodels from the 90s, including Cindy Crawford.
At 51, Crawford rocked the red carpet (and runway) like it was 1999. She still has the body, the hair, and the confidence to glow - a quality she's passing on to her daughter, aspiring supermodel Kaia Gerber.
