Oscars 2018: Older actresses ruled the red carpet

By Lindsay Pinter from FLARE

As exciting as the actual ceremony was at the 90th Academy Awards, we're all here for the stunning outfits showcased on the red carpet. This year, the real fashion winners were some of the industry's older actors. Here are some of our favourite looks from Hollywood's golden girls:

Rita Moreno

Oscar winner and iconic actress Rita Moreno had people talking about her outfit long before she even showed up to the Oscars. Moreno, who presented at the awards this year, wore the same dress she donned at the Academy Awards in 1962 where she won best supporting actress for her role in West Side Story. Usually wearing the same outfit to multiple events would be frowned upon, but Moreno more than pulled it off. In fact, the black and gold ensemble—with an apparently slightly altered neckline—looked just as stunning on her 56 (!) years later.

Jane Fonda

Grace and Frankie star Jane Fonda arrived in a dramatic white Balmain dress with structured shoulders and a small train that made a major impact. Did we mention she's 80 years young?

Helen Mirren

Helen Mirren is Hollywood royalty, and she let everyone know it in a sleek, stunning and regal blue Reem Acra dress with long sleeves and a high neckline. And her diamond and sapphire necklace was truly fit for a Queen.

Meryl Streep

Is it really the Academy Awards without Meryl Streep slaying the red carpet? The queen of the Oscars—Streep's bagged a record 21 nominations and has won three times—did not disappoint this year with a show-stopping red Dior dress featuring a plunging neckline and a Christian Louboutin bag.

Laurie Metcalf

Laurie Metcalf was forever #fashiongoals in a custom Christian Siriano pink sequin dress with a dramatic open back. Metcalf was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Lady Bird, but we'd give her an award just for rocking that gorgeous gown.

All Hollywood icons, all over 60 years old. Proving to all of us that yet again, things get better with age.
