Hi Everyone. Welcome to Ageless Style-Diane Keaton. If you are new here welcome. Every month my friend Elizabeth (of the Vintage Contessa) and I interview or feature someone over 50 who we think has great style. This month I am featuring a favorite of mine Diane Keaton.
Diane Keaton is an actor, producer, and director. She has been the recipient of numerous awards including an Academy Award, a BAFTA Award, two Golden Globe Awards, and the AFI Life Achievement Award. In addition to her acting talents, she has a signature style that never seems to look dated.
Diane favors menswear-inspired ensembles accented by her signature turtleneck and quirky accessories.
She has a keen eye for unpredictable accessories like layered necklaces and heels with socks, and wide belts. Diane says to her “fashion is playtime”. She doesn’t like to overthink it.
Diane’s Seven Fashion Must-Haves
Pockets – She rarely carries a bag
Expert tailoring – “I’m interested in tailoring because when you have a body like mine, without shoulders, you don’t really have much of a silhouette”.
Hints of color – “Colors as accessories punch more. If it’s the whole show, count me out. I don’t want to be in that show. I mean, do you?”
Suits – She says she feels most comfortable in pants and jackets.
A Smile – “As you get older, there are certain things you can show off – your attitude and how you feel … the smile. Because it reflects warmth. Warmth is really a plus when you’re older”.
The Perfect Hat
Keaton often wears high necklines and shirts which work well with her angular features. “When she is wearing a shirt with an open neckline, she adds a choker. When she wears a blazer, she wears the collar up – a clever styling trick.”
Diane is one of those actresses that has been able to work well past her fifties and sixties, uncommon in today’s Hollywood.
In her free time, she also loves to design houses and is the author of six books. I love Diane’s aesthetic in both fashion and design. How about you? Are you an admirer of her style?
Be sure to stop by and visit the Contessa and see who she is featuring today! Editors update, she is featuring my pal Kim whom I adore. Actually, the Contessa grabbed her before I had a chance. You won’t want to miss the interview. Kim is darling.
