50+, fabulous and famous: Best dressed older women of 2019

Move over, Emma Stone, Jennifer Lawrence and the like. There’s currently a real resurgence of women aged 50 and over topping best dressed lists – and it’s easy to see why.

From 73-year-old Helen Mirren to 51-year-old Nicole Kidman, older female celebrities are killing it on the red carpet this year.

Looking at their style is far more interesting than a regular best dressed list. These are women who have spent over five decades honing their sartorial prowess and deciding which colours, shapes and fabrics work best for them.

But that doesn’t mean their wardrobes suffer. From plunging necklines, thigh-high splits and and hot pink hues, these A-lister approved looks could be worn by 20somethings – but they look far better on these women who are completely at ease with the skin they’re in.

After all, they’ve had decades to learn to love themselves. And just as long to settle on the best stylist for them.

Scroll to see which of this year’s outfit worn by some of the entertainment industry’s most famous older women take your fancy.
