7 Actresses Over 50 That Ruled the 2019 Oscars Red Carpet

The Academy Awards is considered by many to be the crown jewel of award season. But the real gems of the Oscars are the stars that added sparkle to the red carpet. We were especially captivated by the glow of the actresses over 50 that showed off their style. Below, seven of our favorite looks. 

Lisa Bonet

The star drew attention to her chiseled cheekbones with a pop of mauve blush that matched her gown. 

Angela Bassett


Bassett stepped out with a ultra-long ponytail and a smoky eye with lush lashes for a positively smoldering look.

Michelle Yeoh

Yeoh let her sequined gown take center stage, opting for a simple, chic blowout and a punchy coral-stained lip.

Makeup: Sabrina Bedrani

Key product: Dior Addict® Stellar ShineTM #649 in DiorosphereTM (Available March 1)   

Glenn Close


Close appeared as if she was taking style cues from the Oscar statuette himself with her golden gown, and thus kept her hair and makeup more subdued, with rosy cheeks and a pale pink eye.

Hair: Brant Mayfield

Makeup: Kai Pritchard

Key products: Leonor Greyl® Mousse Au Lotus VolumatriceTM ($46), Lashify® B Gossamer Lashes ($20)

Helen Mirren

While we loved how Mirren coordinated her lipstick with her neon pink gown, we were particularly fond of how vibrant her silver strands appeared.

Allison Janney


Janney wore her long strands swept back with a deep side part, all the better to show off her dramatic neckline.

Laura Dern

We plan on taking a picture of Dern to our next hair appointment — we completely envied how her gorgeous mermaid waves cascaded over her shoulders.
