A Nostalgic Look Back at Goldie Hawn’s Iconic Style and Beauty Looks Through the Decades

The 'Laugh-In' and 'Overboard' star has always known how to have fun while shining on the red carpet


With her optimistic spirit, quirky personality and award-winning performances, Goldie Hawn won America’s heart back in the ’60s and has continued to charm us in the six decades since. From Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In and Private Benjamin to Overboard and The First Wives Club (to name just a few), the blonde, doe-eyed star has earned her status as a Hollywood icon. Goldie’s enduring appeal isn’t just about her personality and acting skills — she’s also always been wildly stylish, with a delightfully whimsical take on glamour. Goldie Hawn fashion is often a mix of the classically elegant (think sequined gowns) and modern spunk (think ruffles and high necklines).

She knew how to dress, and never shied away from sparkle or pizzazz. She could also be seen as a trendsetter, often wearing styles 30 years ago (or more!) that we see all over social media and the red carpet today.

Beauty wise, Goldie has kept the same hairstyle throughout most of her career: a layered, fringed blowout with bangs and a golden-blonde hue that fits her name. It’s always been her iconic look — a timeless hairdo that flatters her features and makes hair look full and voluminous. She’s also always been a big fan of eyeliner and long lashes, rocking the Priscilla Presley-esque wing in the ’60s and a modern version of the look today.

We’re taking a nostalgic walk down memory lane with Goldie Hawn’s red carpet, streetwear and photoshoot looks through the decades, spanning from the ’60s to the present.
