Susan Sarandon, sexy celebrity, activist and mother, stands out as style icon for the strong woman growing older and looking terrific.
Her family comes first, she said in an interview with Beliefnet.
She also is known for her humanitarian efforts, including working in a soup kitchen for people with AIDS.
She has described herself as shy.
Sarandon says she likes the "juicy, supporting parts" that come to her more frequently now than the leading parts she played when younger (Time, 2008).
Rotten Tomatoes website pays tribute to this glamorous 60-something dame this way:
"Simply by growing old gracefully, actress Susan Sarandon has defied the rules of Hollywood stardom: Not only has her fame continued to increase as she enters middle age, but the quality of her films and her performances in them has improved as well. Ultimately, she has come to embody an all-too-rare movie type -- the strong and sexy older woman."
Susan Sarandan's hair has remained determinedly auburn, which complements her fair complexion.
Her face has small features, with a strong angular chin. Her bone structure is, overall, small.
Her clothing choices run from the "hippie chick" she has described herself as being to Neiman Marcus high-style model in a 2012 advertising campaign with her daughter.
A claret-colored red-velvet dress that she wore for a fund-raiser typifies the saggy and baggy Bohemian gal inner goddess.
The suit she wears on this page is just the right combination of magical Hecate chic in the textured, colorful print jacket and top.
At the same time, the ensemble projects Metis polish. The colors highlight her fair complexion and stunning hair.
Another on-target choice is a colorblock outfit top of link photos, worn at a fashion show. The colors are right for her, and the color-blocking is is proportionate to her smallish facial features.
Sarandon often plays it safe by appearing in basic black, as shown in one round-up of fashion photos of the popular actress.
Her legs sometimes seem not entirely smooth; that may be a trick of unflattering lighting or perhaps she was not wearing appropriate hosiery.
Susan Sarandon, sexy fashion icon, has appeared in fashion ads for Neiman Marcus, stunning in Oscar de la Renta fashion.
"I still am a hippie chick", Sarandon told one reporter. Clearly, Hecate, the original Bohemian gal, is one of her essential fashion archetypes.
Her politically outspoken life shows her Kali, the destroyer and creator goddess. This appears in her fashion style as a tattoo she showed off for the showing off her tattoos for Huffington Post.
Her love of fine clothing is evident in her rapt attention at fashion shows. This is pure Metis, urban sophisticate.
All of us are tapestries of personality characteristics. Susan Sarandon, sexy actress, has been called "an amazing arsenal emotionally, in her beauty and her power". Her humanitarian efforts earned her the sobriquet "a rebel with a hundred causes" from another reporter.
Hecate, Kali, Metis and one more inner goddess comprise Susan Sarandon's priorities. A mother first, she is a little bit Hestia in creating original coming-of-age rituals for her children.
Iconoclast and iconic, Susan Sarandon, sexy and powerful performer, activist and mother, is breaking stereotypes for women and growing old in the spotlight. She has made her life about so much more than just looking good. By doing so, she becomes inspiration for how to dress and successful aging.
