10 Fashion Tricks That Help Sharon Stone Remain a Style Icon at 64

This beautiful blonde who starred in the movies Total Recall and Casino in the 1990s is 64 years old. But perhaps Sharon Stone’s most iconic movie is Basic Instinct. Everyone likely remembers the interrogation scene with her character dressed in white. Since then, she’s been known not only for her movie roles, but also for her elegant style.

At Bright Side, we decided to find out what helps the actress remain a style icon, and what fashion tricks of hers we can adopt.

Sharon Stone’s short hairstyles have become her trademark.

The actress has experimented with hairstyles all her life, but her hair color has always remained approximately the same. She used to have longer hair, but it’s her shorter hairstyles that have become Stone’s trademark. Her most iconic hairstyle is the pixie cut.

She can wear mass market fashion brands on the red carpet.

At the 1998 Academy Awards, Stone appeared wearing a Vera Wang skirt and a white shirt made by a mass market brand. But this wasn’t the first time the actress appeared at a red carpet event wearing casual clothes. At the 1996 Oscars, Stone posed in front of cameras wearing a simple turtleneck. But this outfit wasn’t at all planned.

The story behind the outfit was that a delivery guy drove over the box containing her designer dress with his truck, and the dress had a tire track across the front of it. So, the night before the ceremony, Stone and the costume designer for Basic Instinct had to look for a suitable outfit in her own closet. This was how the iconic turtleneck outfit came to be.

But Stone experienced difficulties with her red carpet outfits even earlier, in 1993. It happened after her movie, Basic Instinct, became a hit. The actress was supposed to attend the Academy Awards, but she didn’t have money to buy an Oscar dress. The fact is that her co-star, Michael Douglas, earned $14 million for acting in the movie, and she got almost nothing.

She often wears white.

Thanks to her most famous scene in the movie, Basic Instinct, Stone realized that the color white suited her.

In the movie, she wore a white dress, and the actress kept it but hasn’t actually put it on since. In fact, the dress was kept in a garment bag, but Stone broke the zipper. That’s why the dress has been sealed in there as if it were a time capsule.

She likes to wear sunglasses.

Stone can often be seen wearing sunglasses at red carpet events. For example, at the premiere of the movie, Elvis, she completed her look with aviator sunglasses. She opted for these because the musician used to be fond of them.

She loves pantsuits.

The actress often wears pantsuits. She can be seen wearing them at red carpet events or during shopping trips. This type of outfit has even become her trademark. Her pantsuits can be of different colors and styles, but she always looks great in them.

She loves to experiment with fashion.
