When you hear the words ‘Living Legend’ only a few people come to mind, and Jane Fonda is one of them.
The daughter of Hollywood heavyweight Henry Fonda, and a 2 time Oscar winner herself (for 1971’s Klute and 1978’s Coming Home) the fitness guru is a true national treasure.
Because of her famous father, Fonda has been in the public eye for most of her life, although she only started acting in the 60’s. She has starred in such iconic films as Barbarella (1968), They Shoot Horses, Don’t They (1969), Nine to Five (1980), On Golden Pond (1981), not to mention her incredible turn in this year’s Youth, which could end up garnering her an 8th Academy Award nomination.
Fonda turns 78 today, and she’s never looked better! We don’t know who her stylist is, but her red carpet style is the best it’s even been as well! She’s constantly surprising us and she’s always on all the Best Dressed lists.
For this reason, we decided to compile our choices for her Top 5 best red carpet looks!
Here is our list:
05. Grammy Awards (2015)
We have no idea what Jane was doing at the Grammys that year, other than letting everyone know that she still got it. This Balmain jumpsuit is everything! Women half her age couldn’t have pulled this off. We tip our hats to you Miss Fonda.
04. Academy Awards (2013)
You have to be really ballsy to wear bright yellow on the red carpet. All eyes were on Jane when she opted for an open-back structured Versace gown at the Oscars. We’ve never seen shoulder pads look that good.
03. amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS Gala (2011)
The very definition of age appropriate dressing (if there is such a thing). This Roberto Cavalli leopard gown looks stunning on Fonda. We hope she bought it.
02. Cannes Film Festival (2014)
Angelina Jolie wore a champagned coloured version of this same Elie Saab dress at the Oscars that year, but we must say that Jane wore it better. Simply breathtaking!
01. Los Angeles Youth Premiere (2015)
Let’s try to forget that Jane is wearing a floral headband and concentrate on this exquisite floral appliqué’d Valentino gown. It’s a total show-stopper and Jane has never looked better or happier!
