When it comes to celebrity fashion over 40, there are a couple of different approaches.
The first approach to fashion over 40 when you're famous is to dress pretty much the same way you dressed 20 years ago. And that does work for some celebrities (Cher!)
The other approach to fashion over 40 when you are famous is to keep pushing the boundaries; to experiment and have fun with fashion like Julianne Moore (who wears things like fur shoes) and Marisa Tomei both do.
Neither Julianne Moore or Marisa Tomei — who are both well over 40 — dress in a way that's too young, but neither do they dress in a way that's expected for their age.
Marisa Tomei in particular likes to push the fashion envelope. She wears edgy brands like Preen on the red carpet instead of the expected little black dress.
And here, Marisa Tomei wears a hot Peter Pilotto dress that features a sexy zip front and criss-cross print that makes her figure look fantastic.
She pairs the look with nude pumps (a great way to elongate legs.)
But maybe the main reason Marisa Tomei can pull off this fashion forward look so well is because her face and hair look natural, almost casual. This mixture of dressy and casual is one of the secrets to dressing and looking younger.
