There are so, so many things to love about Julia Louis-Dreyfus. If you’re a traditionalist, you’ll always love (and find yourself incessantly quoting) Elaine from Seinfeld. If you’re ~*hip and with it*~, you praise her for her role as Selina Meyer in the critically-acclaimed show Veep. And, if you’ve just got a love for humor in general, you think about this hilarious Emmys moment at least once a day. If you’re me, you just know that Julia Louis-Dreyfus is one of the truly incomparable gems of the entertainment industry, and that she deserves praise at all times.

One thing is for sure: Julia Louis-Dreyfus, winner of one Golden Globe, seven Emmys, six Screen Actor’s Guild Awards, five American Comedy Awards, and two Critics’ Choice Television Awards, is one goddamn successful grown-ass woman, and her chic sophisticated style proves that point time and time again. Here are some of her best looks:

You always have to love JLD in her natural habit (looking absolutely stunning with an award in each hand).

Critics’ Choice Television Awards, 2015

5th Annual Critics' Choice Television Awards - Arrivals

This is the best way to wear black and gold sans any accessories.

72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards, 2015

Proof that an all-white ensemble works, even in the middle of January.

66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, 2014

This is actually my favorite of JLD’s most recent awards show looks. I love when people wear red on red carpets, despite the fact that there are those that complain about the dress clashing with the color of the carpet itself (a #FamousPersonProblem, to be sure).

The best way to style a bold, bright color like this is to keep everything else simple, and Julia nailed it.

Glasses can be a fashion statement, too.

Bold earrings aren’t my personal favorite, but they work here. Everything else is so understated that the jewelry pulls the look together.
