It’s so true that ‘age is just a number’. The outfits worn by some of the celebrities aged 50 and beyond at the recent Oscars bear testimony to the fact that we can all look and feel good no matter what age we are.
Isn’t it nice to see how so many chose to embrace colour too, rather than reach for the typical black gowns? Just look how amazing Helen Mirren (70) looks in her stunning blue dress, just perfect for her light, cool colouring. Meryle Streep (69) and Allison Janney (58) both choose beautiful red dresses, with Sandra Bullock (53) opting for a graduated gold and black dress.
Their styling is spot on too, with each choosing designs that flatter their shape. The big bow on Nicole Kidman’s (50) blue dress adds interest on her straighter shape, giving the illusion of more curves and the shoulder details on Jane Fonda’s dress create balance with her hips and draw the eye upwards.
It’s so easy to lose your style mojo as you get older and it’s often milestone birthdays that bring this more into focus – my 50th is fast approaching! – but knowing how to dress with confidence by choosing styles, colours and clothes that flatter and really feel like ‘you’ can honestly make sure your age doesn’t define you – or better still dressing well can take years off you!
