When you think of Oscar-nominated actress Jennifer Tilly, chances are you think about her iconic voice, beloved horror characters she’s captivated fans with for decades now, and of course, her sensational fashion.
This needs to be said: Tilly deserves so much more credit for her red-carpet fashion. She brings the drama, the color, and always looks like the definition of showstopping.
The Chucky star is no stranger to having all eyes on her, especially when she’s wearing something so eye-catching for an A-list-packed event. Ever since the 1990s, Tilly has shown that she can rock any look she chooses, from daring velvet gowns to 1960s mod-inspired mini-dresses.
Along with being a fashion icon, she’s also a sustainability Queen (and knows how to rock a great rewear) and a vintage fine jewelry collector. For someone as multi-faceted as she, you’d definitely come to expect an eclectic closet full of sparkling treasures.
Truly, it was hard to limit ourselves to only 40 of her looks, considering all of Tilly’s iconic ensembles (we’re still not over her Valentino Barbiecore look!), but we somehow did it.
