At 61, Meryl Streep may be acknowledged as one of the greatest actresses of her time, but she's also known for her red carpet glamour. She looked white-hot at the 82nd Annual Academy Awards with a loose, twisted updo, long white Marchesa gown, and square diamond pavé earrings from Fred Leighton.
These full-bodied waves give Streep a carefree and youthful look at a luncheon for the 82nd Annual Academy Awards.
At 64, Diane Keaton pulls off casual chic like few others, and this look is no exception. We'll call this lipstick choice "bronze berry," and that lightly tousled, piece-y 'do we'll just call that fab.
Take a cue from Keaton if you want to conceal grays. Opt for mixed shades of darker and lighter highlights to avoid brassy, overly bleached strands. This color complements her eyes and is a great pick for fall at the 24th Annual Infinity Awards in New York City.
Fifty-two-year-old Sharon Stone proves year after year that elegance and sex appeal don't have to be mutually exclusive. At a 2009 cocktail party in Turkey, she rocked some seriously sexy winged eyeliner to match her flirty flipped layers.
Breezy, Beachy Waves
Stone knows this hairstyle is great for two reasons it can be done in five minutes before bouncing out the door and the subtle volume gives her hair a slight lift for movement. She looked positively glowing in an all-black ensemble and these soft waves at the 2010 Entertainment Weekly and Women in Film Pre-Emmy Party.
Sally Field, 63, has been working in Hollywood for over 40 years, so it's no wonder she has her style nailed. The evidence speaks for itself here at the 15th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, where she wore her salt-and-pepper layers casually curled and highlighted her porcelain complexion with berry lips and rosy cheeks.
Sleek with a Bang
Field's slight, separated bangs paired with her shiny and sleek style at a 2010 awards ceremony in California set her up for the complete polished look. Plus: points for that gorgeous dewy complexion.
Fifty-four-year-old Geena Davis looks radiant at the premiere of Accidents Happen. The simple side part and slicked strands bring out her bold lip color.
At the 2009 Tribeca Film Festival, Davis's loosely constructed low bun looks effortlessly classy. Matched with her chic LBD, it boosts her complexion and shows off her sculpted shoulders.
Melanie Griffith, 53, knows you can't go wrong with a timeless look. She channels a little bit of Old Hollywood at the 64th Annual Tony Awards with this twisted updo paired with a perfect red lip. She adds her own twist by gently separating her bangs.
Lots 'o Layers
Griffith shines at the Genesis Awards, with a rosy complexion and lots of full, layered highlights. The cut is perfect for adding volume and shape, and the apples of her cheeks glow with just a drop of illuminating crème.
Sixty-five-year-old Helen Mirren knows you're never too old to try the latest trend, as long as you make it work for you. She rocked these face-framing highlights that brought out her swooping bangs at the 27th Annual Academy Awards in 2007.
Mirren knows what works for her face shape and hair type. She sported her signature platinum bob at the L.A. premiere of Love Ranch in June 2010. The style frames her face perfectly, and her pale, pink lips give her an attractively flushed look.
