Jodie Foster Gets It Spot On At Elysium Premiere In Stunning Aqua

The sight of Jodie Foster in a knock-out Matt Damon and his gorgeous wife Luciana, Jodie more than held her own in the teal-hued Mouret creation, consisting of a pencil-length skirt, a tight bodice and flattering capped sleeves. She kept the rest of her look natural and added chic nude matching extras to finish.

Let this be a lesson to all of us - and to those who think you have to resort to extreme hem lengths or flesh flashes to garner attention as you clock up the years. Keep it simple and elegant and you can't go wrong - and you might end up looking several years younger, a la Jodie. Comprende?

Take inspiration from Jodie and opt for a new flattering skirt length - the midi. Shop the best ones in our gallery - we want them all.
