It is nearly 60 years since she made her name as a Hollywood sex symbol. But Jane Fonda shows that, at the age of 81, she can still dazzle.
The veteran actress posed for British Vogue in a special ‘Non-Issue Issue’ to combat age discrimination. In one shot, Miss Fonda wears a dramatic black and silver heavily-fringed sequined jumper and culottes by Gucci, with high-heeled studded black boots.
She is also pictured on the fashion bible’s front cover in a fringed Tom Ford white dress, its plunging neckline reminiscent of the daring outfits she wore in one of her early hit films, the 1968 saucy sci-fi satire Barbarella.
Miss Fonda, who in the 1980s helped inspire a workout craze through her fitness videos, told the magazine: ‘It’s important to understand that older women are the fastest growing demographic in the whole world. It’s time to recognise our value.’
