At 84, Jane Fonda Is Still the Very Definition of Beauty Goals

“We need to revise how we think about aging,” Jane Fonda, 84 today, said once. “The old paradigm was: You’re born, you peak at midlife, and then you decline into decrepitude. Looking at aging as ascending a staircase, you gain wellbeing, spirit, soul, wisdom, the ability to be truly intimate and a life with intention.” Wise words to live by, and live by them she has—Fonda’s zest for life has endured well into her ninth decade, and she has long demonstrated that beauty isn’t merely about what you look like, but also what you put into the world.

That said, the actor, activist and general icon also looks next-level good. Flying the flag for silver hair, she is also a fan of an aerobic-style workout (she is the OG fit-fluencer, thanks to her VHS days in the ’80s), and is never anything less than glamour personified when she hits the red carpet. Here, Vogue takes a look at some of her best beauty moments over the years.
