Judi Dench does ethnic-inspired chic to perfection

Judi Dench.
Dame Judi Dench knows what suits her, and she sticks to it!

Even while stepping out on the red carpet Judi Dench looks so comfortable. Compared to the those twenty-somethings wearing spandex-pants to to the max, needing Hollywood tape to hold things together and quite frankly looking like they need to hold in their breath a lot longer than is healthy.

When you’re in your 80’s it’s understood you can dress for comfort more than style, but Dame Judi Dench does both. 

The 82-year-old hit the red carpet this week to show off her latest movie Victoria and Abdul in London. She wore a floor-length blue and white brocade coat with diamante detail over a matching ankle-length dress, and she looked positively regal.

As stylish as she looked, she also looked like she could just as easily be spending the night doing anything and be totally comfortable while she’s at it.

Dench had an almost identical look promoting the same film while in Venice earlier in the week. While coat featured a different collar detail, and a different colour base, the style was practically identical.

When it’s not flowing coats, this star loves her flowing scarves.

They are a great way to add a touch of colour to a simple outfit, not to mention a touch of style.

As the saying goes, if you are on to a good thing, stick to it.
