Here, the star paired a traditional pantsuit with a graphic silver necklace and a jacket adorned with silk, pinstripe-like accents. 04 of 08 at the 2013 New York premiere of Admission D Dipasupil/FilmMagic Dressed in head to toe black, Tomlin let her necklace's geometric pendant do the talking. The monochromatic ensemble polished her red carpet look together, while, the small, barely-there accessories managed to make a fashionable statement. The standout? A perfectly-fitted black leather topper. 05 of 08 at the 2013 Creative Arts Emmy Awards Mark Davis/Getty Images To receive the Emmy for Outstanding Voice-Over Performance for her role in An Apology to Elephants, Tomlin elegantly opted for a pantsuit combination that was nothing short of gorgeous. Not only did the star wear matching gold earrings, but metal-trimmed detailing around the jacket shined alongside her trophy. 06 of 08 at the 2013 Women's Media Awards Paul Zimmerman/WireImage It's evident that for Tomlin, sequined jackets are always a yes. Here, the legend once more chose to be comfortable in a pair of pants and a paired down black top. However, instead of sticking to any black blazer, she made sure to make a statement in a piece covered with shiny embellishments. 07 of 08 at the 2010 Emmy Awards Dan MacMedan/WireImage Tomlin ditched her affinity for black and dared to not only wear a zebra-print shirt with a matching jacket, but also accessorize in a wild style. Paired with a floor-length brown skirt, the beauty threw on a brown belt with woven leather detailing, a gold necklace replete with pendants, and matching metallic jewelry. 08 of 08 at the 2010 Creative Arts Emmy Awards Jason LaVeris/FilmMagic It's not necessary to show skin to drop jaws on the red carpet. At the 2010 Creative Arts Emmys in Los Angeles, Tomlin beat the feat in a floor-length, long-sleeved gown that mirrored old-Hollywood elegance. She kept things cool with a freshly chopped, pixie-like 'do.
