Andie MacDowell STUNS as She Walks the Runway at 65, but Some People Are Trolling Her
Defying societal expectations and stereotypes in one go, the Groundhog Day actress walked during Paris Fashion Week. Andie MacDowell showed off her toned abs as she walked fiercely at the show, and people can’t stop talking about it.
Andie walked for L’Oréal Paris.
The famous actress recently took center stage at a fabulous fashion event in Paris called “Le Défilé L’Oréal Paris — Walk Your Worth.” This show held right near the Eiffel Tower, was all about celebrating the strength and worth of women. Andie, along with other famous stars like Helen Mirren, Kendall Jenner, Eva Longoria, Aishwarya Rai, Viola Davis, and many more, walked the runway.
A strong message was delivered.
The event wasn’t just about fashion; it carried a powerful message. The theme of the show, “Walk Your Worth,” emphasized the importance of supporting and celebrating women. As the stars walked the runway, messages of sisterhood, female strength, and empowerment were on full display. During the event, Helen Mirren, too, sported her gray hair in full bloom and walked the runway with confidence alongside Elle Fanning.
The 65-year-old turned all heads at the show.
Andie MacDowell dazzled the audience with her youthful and toned look. She wore a stylish black bra top and high-waisted leather pants paired with a matching long leather coat. To complete her outfit, she chose to wear striking holographic platform heels. Her natural gray curls, which she proudly embraces, were styled beautifully, and she wore a dark, smoky eye and a mauve lip. Andie confidently strutted down the runway, proving that age is just a number and that she’s still as fabulous as ever.
Andie’s walk received mixed reactions.
As videos of the star’s walk emerged online, fans praised her look. “She has always been beautiful, but this look is so gorgeous! I am so glad she’s letting her gray show!” commented a fan. “What an absolute ROCKSTAR!!” added another.
But some people also think that the look wasn’t suited for her. “She does not look great, nothing wrong with gray hair, but the makeup makes her beauty diminish,” shared a fan. “This is hard cause I love her, but I’m not liking this look at all!! 😢 Too heavy on the eye makeup and I’m not loving the hair!” posted another.
Andie has always been vocal about her gray hair.
In an interview conducted earlier this year, the actress openly discussed the comments regarding her decision to embrace her gray hair. She responded to those who suggested that her gray hair made her appear older by simply laughing it off.
Andie MacDowell questioned the idea that her gray hair should make her look much older, saying, “How old do you think I look? I’m going to be 65. What do you think I look 75 just because I let my hair go gray?” She expressed her desire to embrace the aging process, emphasizing that she no longer wishes to appear younger because she has already experienced her youthful years.
She doesn’t want to be who she is not.
MacDowell made it clear that she has no interest in trying to replicate her younger self from her iconic role in Four Weddings and a Funeral. She finds the effort of attempting to look younger as an older person to be quite challenging and believes it’s time to drop that pretense.
She always wanted to go gray.
The decision to let her hair go gray was something Andie MacDowell had wanted for a long time, even when she was younger. She mentioned that her mother passed away when Andie was only 23, so she never got to see her mother transition to gray hair. Instead, she drew inspiration from her father and even George Clooney.
She thought that the “salt and pepper” look would suit her and enhance her overall appearance. As her hair started to grow gray, she realized that her intuition was correct. She loved how it made her eyes stand out, improved her skin tone, and gave her a sense of empowerment and authenticity.
But she’s open to change.
Life is all about change, and Andie is well aware of it. While she has been rocking those grays for years, she admits that there may come a day in the future when she feels like changing things up. But for now, she’s content being a gray diva.
The actress has admitted to trying Botox before, but she isn’t a fan of cosmetic procedures and likes to keep it all natural now.
