Sarah Paulson at 2016 Emmys Red Carpet

There was no shortage of beautifully diverse looks at last night’s Emmy Awards. Woman of all sizes, colors and ages walked the red carpet and took center stage. Society has proven harsh on women who — gasp! — dare to age, especially in Hollywood, so we really loved the representation of talented, funny, gorgeous actresses over 40 during TV’s biggest night. These women remind us once again that beauty is ageless.
