Every passing premiere seems to bring out a new flock of PYTs, but never fear—Jane Fonda, Helen Mirren, and more are here to prove you don't have to be a spring chicken to absolutely slaughter the red carpet. Ahead, some of their most recent, jaw-dropping looks even if their industry still relegates women over 40 to playing moms, while their male cohorts' girlfriends stay the same age forever, hmm.
You're never to old to twirl in a big, tulle princess dress.
Big up to both Helen and designer Sassi Holford for this playful moment.
Why does this look like the triumphant end to a biopic about a girl who was told she'd never amount to anything, but years later, you see her in Giorgio Armani at the Venice Film Festival?
One of the perks of growing up is getting your own wind machine to sweep up your hair and Valentino gown. That's a fact.
Who said you couldn't wear skirts above the knee after a certain age? Not Louis Vuitton, nor Julianne Moore, that's who.
Valentino! Couture! Baby!
Remember when J.Lo made Jane Fonda wear a ruffly matron of honor dress in Monster in Law? Classic. But in this Marchesa dream, that peach monstrosity is but a distant memory.

DAAAAANG, MICHELLE. (In Michael Kors.)
We picked a similar jumpsuit for the New Taylor™, but she would do well to just be the New Jane Fonda. (Hers is Alberta Ferretti, FYI.)
