There’s NO denying that she’s a national treasure, but actress Emma has never been considered a style icon—until now.

The Love Actually star used to wear oversized coats, shirts and pants in muddy colors that looked like they were borrowed from a teenager.

Now at 63, he’s made it. She still likes it baggy but it comes in brighter colors with a tailored edge.

Her jackets have silhouettes that flatter the curves and her pants are high-waisted with sharp lines.

These looser tailored shapes can be worn with flats or heels and are easy to pull together.

YOU can always count on red carpet regular Viola Davis to bring a powerful pop of color to any event.

Whether it’s at an awards ceremony or the premiere of her recent hit, The Woman King, pictured, the 57-year-old Oscar-winning actress stands out with her vibrant colors.

Early in her career, she favored more matte shades, but as her stylist Elizabeth Stewart put it: “We wanted to be strong, simple and bold.”

Mission accomplished.

Andie of FOUR Weddings And A Funeral admits that she used to dress like she wanted to be invisible.

Not anymore — in addition to embracing graying, the actress has emerged as a style icon at 64.

“I feel so much more confident in my skin and comfortable with my age,” she said this summer, after walking the runway at Paris Fashion Week in a champagne-colored gown.

The lesson? Don’t be afraid to be bold and daring with your style.

From Basic Instinct to Casino, Sharon Stone was the quintessential Hollywood femme fatale in the 1990s.

But in her 20s, she hid her body under blazers and baggy pants, and was told she didn’t have what it takes to pull it off.

“People said they couldn’t hire me because I wasn’t hot,” she said.
