Puffy Sleeves and Sequins: See Margot Kidder's Most Glam '80s Fashion Moments
Margot Kidder passed away at age 69 at on Sunday, but her artistic—and sartorial—legacy will live on. The Canadian-born actress died at her home in Livingston, Montana, and details surrounding her cause of death are still unknown.
Kidder is popularly remembered for portraying Lois Lane in 1978’s Superman: The Movie alongside Christopher Reeve, later returning to the role for the franchise’s sequels, and solidifying her Hollywood success well into the early ‘80s with films like The Amityville Horror and Heartaches. Accolades aside, she struggled with manic depression—and previously opened up about her mental health concerns. Beyond her private life and time on camera, it's also hard to forget Kidder’s fabulously-‘80s red carpet and evening style.

From flashy Superman premieres to several appearances at the Oscars, Kidder completely leaned in to the decadent decade’s fashion, turning to wildly girly pink ruffled dresses, oversize shoulder pads, and on occasion, plenty of sequins.
