Lily Tomlin may not be a newcomer, but she certainly is the sweetheart of the 2016 Golden Globes. The actress is nominated both as lead actress in a comedy series for Netflix’s Grace and Frankie and as lead actress in a comedy film for the Sony Classics film Grandma. The same success that has shaped the double-nominee’s career is apparent in her timeless style as well.

Tomlin knows what works, and she sticks to it. The actress’s red carpet style M.O. consists of effortless black separates and alternates between jackets with sequins, embellished detailing, or sometimes even a hint of a ruffle. Graphic necklaces and a curly crop typically top off her look.

The actress's style at the 2015 Emmys was a perfect example of her take on classic dressing: She paired black separates with graphic shell jewels and a black clutch. You can expect the same ageless elegance when she hits the red carpet as a nominee at the 2016 Golden Globes. View our gallery to see all of her best looks.
