She’s one of Hollywood’s most legendary stars and Goldie Hawn has proven once again that she’s still got it when it comes to the fashion department.
The 73-year-old was one of the very special guests at the Child Mind Institute’s 2019 Change Maker Awards earlier this week in New York City and turned heads in a stylish jumpsuit.
The Bird on a Wire actress showed that wearing designer gowns isn’t the only way to make a statement and looked as glamorous as ever in her a relaxed yet sophisticated outfit.
The mother-of-three showed off plenty of skin and accessorised with a chunky necklace, gold bracelets and a pair of metallic heels to make her ensemble pop. The First Wives Club star also wore her luscious blonde locks in curls for the event.
It was a big night for Goldie, who was honoured with an activist award for her work in mental health awareness for children. The Child Mind Institute aims to transform the lives of children and families who struggle with mental health and learning disorders, while the Cactus Hour star provides help for children through the Goldie Hawn Foundation and Mind Up program.
The proud grandmother took to the stage to accept her award and gave a powerful speech about her own struggles with anxiety as a child and how she overcame them.
“I thought the Russians were going to bomb us. I thought I could die without ever kissing a boy. I suffered anxiety every time I heard a siren,” she told the audience, according to People.
She explained that she suffered anxiety attacks throughout her career and eventually saw a doctor who helped her through meditation.
“I felt like I returned back to my deepest part, to my heart, to my joy. It just hit this seed of joy that I always had as a young girl. Because all I ever wanted to be was happy. That was my goal.”
Following the event, Goldie shared a photograph of herself with US journalist Katie Couric, who presented her with her award.
“@katiecouricyou are an angel for coming and supporting @childmindinstitute and all of us doing all we can to help our children struggling with mental health challenges,” she said on Instagram.
Goldie’s fans praised her for her continued work to help children.
“I love you Goldie,” one fan wrote. “So grateful for what you are doing for kids! Love and light!”
Another comment read: “Well done Goldie, this is where fame can help charities. I just wish more stars would help as it would make such a difference.”
A third added: “Thank you Goldie from a retired teacher and a sister of a brother with mental health issues. You are an inspiration for all.”
