Watch: Michelle Pfeiffer presents Selma Blair with Equity in Entertainment Award during emotional on-stage moment

Michelle Pfeiffer has showcased her ageless beauty at an appearance for an event to honour some of the most powerful women in entertainment. 

The actor, 63, appeared to be ageing backwards as she attended The Hollywood Reporter's 2021 Power 100 Women in Entertainment gala, which was held in Los Angeles on Wednesday afternoon. 

Taking to the podium to present the Equity in Entertainment award to Selma Blair, 49, the Scarface actor appeared fresh-faced and wrinkle-free with minimal make-up highlighting her natural beauty. 

As well as showcasing her ageless beauty, the golden-globe winning actor demonstrated her style credentials in a simple yet elegant, oversized black suit by Celine.

After the event, the Grease 2 actor shared an image of herself to Instagram and also one of her with Blair, and in the accompanying caption explained what an "honour" it was to present an award at the event.

"I had the honour of presenting the Equity in Entertainment Award to the amazing @selmablair at the @hollywoodreporter’s Power 100 Women in Entertainment," she wrote. 

She went on to thank the designer for her outfit. 

"Thank you @celine for the beautiful power suit," she added.

The post received a shining response in the comments, with many praising the star for her youthful looks. 

"Ageless beauty," one fan wrote. 

"Still looking incredible Michelle," another agreed. 

"You look amazing, never changed," yet another fan noted.

Pfieffer presented the award to Blair, who has become an advocate for the rights and dignity of people with disabilities after her diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in 2018.

While presenting her award to Blair, Pfeiffer praised the star for her approach to her diagnosis: "The fortitude of with which she has faced with MS in nothing short of heroic.

"She is the kind of hero very much needed right now, and not only for the MS community.

"She is completely transparent with the challenges and heartbreak of this disease and speaks to her struggle and successes like a poet," Pfeiffer continued. 

"She brings a depth of compassion that we are all inspired by and is a much-needed example of how social media can and should be used — as a tool for connection, inspiration and healing."

Fans will likely best remember Pfeiffer for her sassy patent leather catsuit for her role as Catwoman in the 1992 film Batman Returns.

Fast forward 30 years and Pfeiffer hardly looks like she's aged at all.

For those looking to channel Pfeiffer’s youthful appearance, the star has previously shared her wellness regime.

But it isn't necessarily for the faint hearted as it includes both 3am wake-ups and restrictive diets.

In an interview with The Sunday Times Style supplement, Pfeiffer previously revealed she has followed a number of trendy diets in the past: “I went through a vegan phase,” she tells the publication, adding that she is now “paleoish”.

As for exercise, Pfeiffer says she dabbles in “a bit of yoga [and] a bit of Pilates” as well as walking, running and biking.

She is also a morning person, waking “with the sunrise” – a quality which is typically associated with a lower BMI, according to science.

However, she hasn’t always been so virtuous. She told People magazine in 1999: “I did nothing beauty-wise. I smoked cigarettes, ate whatever I wanted and used bar soap on my face. People were horrified by how I treated my skin.”

And now, the actor does allow herself one regular indulgence, and that’s alcohol, settling down with “wine or tequila” in the evenings.

Pfeiffer recently revealed she has learned to live a more simple life during the COVID-19 pandemic

The actor, who is married to television writer-and-producer David E. Kelley, underwent a period of reflection during the various lockdowns and came to the realisation that she can "live with a lot less".

Discussing her experience of lockdown with Italian publication IO Donna, she said: "I realised that you can live with a lot less, like many I realised I don't need much. It's easy to live with the constant desire for something else, but in the end it is clear that they are only things, mostly useless objects."
