At 83, Dame Shirley Bassey Is As Fabulous As Ever

“He loves only gold!” sang Dame Shirley Bassey on Goldfinger, her title track for the 1964 James Bond film.

More than half a century later, she’s proven that the line also applies to her, by posting an image of herself covered in gold sequins.

Bassey shared a new promotional photo on Instagram, teasing the November 6th release of her new album, I Owe It All To You.

Dripping in gold from head-to-toe, the 83-year-old star proved that her glamorous style is eternal and still very much in effect.

The glitzy motif is a Bassey signature.

Whenever she takes to the stage to perform her famous Bond hit, she often wears a sequin or metallic gown to go with it (if you haven’t spent hours on YouTube watching her live performances, you simply haven’t lived).

For this latest fashion moment, which was styled by Cheryl Konteh, Bassey is seen wearing a golden, long-sleeved Alex Perry gown with a long train to match.

She paired her sumptuous gown with, as is the new norm, a matching custom gold sequined face mask.

(If you pre-order her new album, you even get a chance to win a replica of the mask.)

Meanwhile, Butler & Wilson earrings gave the look a dazzling finish that was indeed worthy of Hollywood royalty.

You can never have too much sparkle: after all, Bassey did sing, “Diamonds Are Forever,” too.
