How Does Goldie Hawn's Figure Look at 78 in a One-Piece Swimsuit?

Goldie Hawn recently showcased a stylish look during her vacation in Skiathos, Greece with longtime partner Kurt Russell. She wore a black backless swimsuit with a printed scarf wrapped around her waist. She tied her messy blonde hair with a white clamp, allowing a few strands to fall across her face. Her relaxed look, however, was criticized.

One bewildered netizen who saw the 78-year-old actress's photo on social media remarked, "Eternally youthful?????" However, another countered, suggesting people let Hawn and Russell vacation in peace, saying, "Leave them alone."

Adding to her relaxed beach ensemble, Hawn completed her look with dark sunglasses and white strappy sandals. Russell sported black shorts, a grey baseball cap, and a long-sleeved dark blue shirt. He was also seen shirtless at one point.

More netizens aired their reactions online. A disappointed person criticized Russell's shirtless style, stating, "That's great! Now, please put on a shirt."

One naysayer suggested that Hawn and Russell should consider dressing more conservatively, commenting, "There comes a time when people should reconsider what they wear... some form of a cover-up would be appropriate here."

Another questioned whether the couple in the photos were actually the celebrity couple, noting, "That doesn't even look like them."

A supportive fan expressed admiration for Hawn and Russell's youthful looks, writing, "I just love Goldie, she is my idol. I hope I look like that at her age rather than some of the Pete Burns look-alikes 👀 I still think he is hot too."

Jolie, on the other hand, wore a stunning, floor-length, seafoam-green gown. The dress featured a draped, off-the-shoulder neckline and intricate ruching across the bodice, which highlighted her slim figure.

The velvet gown, a creation of Atelier Versace, flowed into a graceful train, adding a sense of grandeur to her look. She kept her accessories minimal, allowing her natural elegance to shine. Her new bird tattoo subtly peeked through, adding a personal touch to the ensemble without overpowering the dress.

Adding to the admiration, Donatella Versace also posted images of the pair from the event. She praised the actress for wearing the piece and even gave a little history of the dress.

"You look so beautiful. I love that you celebrate Atelier Versace craftsmanship. This dress was created in 2013 and I remember you had huge creative input in the design… Artists supporting artists is so important!" she wrote.

People also took to various social media platforms to show their enthusiasm about the actress and her daughter's looks. One praised Jolie, "That is one of the most beautiful dresses I have ever seen," while another seconded the sentiments, writing, "Angie is the most beautiful woman alive."

A second camp praised the actress' choice of hair color, "Angelina looks so stunning with honey blonde hair." However, some preferred Jolie with darker hair, "She looks great but I prefer her natural darker brunette!!"

"I want the hair slightly darker but dress and her vibe is BEYOND [sic]," said another, a sentiment that another fan agreed with, "She looks great & the dress is sitting just right. Def agree that darker hair would've really brought the look together!"

The verdict on Jolie's look being elegant was not unanimous, and she received criticism in equal measure. Others thought the dress did not look as stylish as many claimed it to be. "Angelina looks like a velvet drape curtain," wrote a reader.

Another chipped in, "That dress reminds me of old fashion curtains/drapes….ugh looks heavy." "Stylish?" wondered another Facebook user who also said, "They look frumpy, both of them."
