On Friday night, actress Jane Fonda stunned in a leopard print dress at France’s 10th Lumière Film Festival in Lyon. She was living proof that age isn’t anything but a number at the age of 80.
Even her energy was high and she was seen beaming at the crowds. The dress showed off her slim figure to perfection.
Jane Fonda paired her leopard print dress with a chunky gold necklace and gold hoop earrings. At the event, she was the recipient of the Lumière Award.
For makeup, she went for a soft pink lip, a touch of blush on her cheeks, and dark mascara and eyeliner. Her hair was worn in waves.

Earlier in the day, the actress gave a master class at Lyon’s Théâtre des Célestins. There she spoke alongside Institut Lumiere director and Cannes chief Thierry Frémaux.
For that event, she didn’t look any less stunning in a pair of patterned green pants that flares at the leg. She matched her pants with a green sweater and a beaded necklace.
Fonda, who is fluent in French, addressed the audience in their native language. She had the crowd eating out of the palm of her hand as she told stories about her career and life in the spotlight.
The “Book Club” and “Grace and Frankie” star spoke at length about her political activism and her controversial 1972 trip to Vietnam that earned her the nickname “Hanoi Jane.”
She was heard saying:
“It helps to be in popular culture when you’re a militant, so I want to continue to be very popular in my work so that I can do better militancy.”
Despite being unapologetically feminist, the actress warned that being outspoken about activism wasn’t for everyone in the entertainment industry. She advised that those who spoke out should only do so if they truly believe in their cause.
