Goldie Hawn at the 2013 Novak Djokovic Foundation Fundraising Gala Dinner

Posted on September 16, 2013

What’s not to love here?

Goldie Hawn attends the 2013 Novak Djokovic Foundation Fundraising Gala Dinner in New York City.

She’s just so very Goldie. We want to get mid-afternoon-drunk with her.

Look, from a style perspective, there’s a lot here we could complain about, but at the end of the day, if you’re the guy telling Goldie Hawn to get her hair out of her face, you’re the guy who’s kind of missing the point about personal style.

Goldie’s the same age as Helen Mirren. If she did herself up Mirren-style (i.e., chic, sometimes sexy, and generally considered age-appropriate) she’d look so odd that people would either not recognize her or would wind up recoiling from her. We guarantee if she got her hair cut like Helen’s almost everyone would say she looked instantly ten years older. Granted, this is not an excuse for having such messy hair.

As for the rest of it, it’s fun. Those aren’t the shoes for that dress, but we like that she’s still doing the drapey, brightly colored thing. It’s her signature style, in as much as she actually has one. Yeah, it’s a little nightgown-y. You know what? She’s Goldie. She don’t give a shit. She’s gonna stand there and wave and laugh like you all just threw a party for her.

      Goldie makes me happy.

    • Emily Dagger

      I disagree fundamentally about the hair cut. I think after a certain point, it’s the “youthful” straggly, stringy, windblown hair in the surgically mauled face that really ages one.

      She looks like the aunt who’s drunk before the wedding reception even starts.

      • MilaXX

        She is the aunt who’s drunk before the wedding reception starts.

        • snarkykitten

          and I’m sorry, but that aunt is an embarrassment.

          • conniemd

            But that’s a you problem. If its an old aunt, most people are going to be cheering her own for still enjoying life. Growing old ain’t easy, so you have to cheer someone for being full of fun and life at Goldy’s age.

          • fursa_saida

            That aunt is a DELIGHT.

        • Elizabetta1022

          But she’s also your favorite Aunt! The one who you could tell your sex secrets to in college, and who still smokes weed.

          • demidaemon

            Yes, and that’s exactly why we love her!

    • joything

      Ha, Goldie IS a party! C’mon down!

    • MilaXX

      I feel like all she does is wear mui muis and drink cosmos all day.

      • homofascist

        Then she is my heroine!

      • Fanny_Trollope

        Who doesn’t love a well-deployed tropical-print halter-neck caftan on Goldie Hawn? Long may she wave.

    • annabelle archer

      “We want to get mid-afternoon-drunk with her.” God, yes.

      • decormaven

        Is the bar open? I could use a wee drinkie ’bout now.

      • ballerinawithagun

        Isn’t that perfect???

        • annabelle archer

          It just is.

      • Lizzyisi

        Sure, but it’s still an ugly dress.

        • annabelle archer

          Goldie. Hawn. Your argument is invalid. ; )

          • StellaZafella

            Here! Here! This looks like a bumble bee metamorphosing into a butterfly…how much more Goldie can ya get! “Heeheeheehee, what?”

    • lobsterlen

      I bet Goldie doesn’t need one drink to be Goldie. She has been naturally drunk since the late 60s. She probably wakes up in morning just like this.

    • marlie

      It’s an interesting print. Otherwise, “go Goldie!”

      • annabelle archer

        It would be really cool to see her dressed completely differently for a role. I’d love to see her in a suit, hair back, doing the “grown up thing”, but only if I knew I’d get Flower Child Goldie right back.

        • alyce1213

          “Overboard?” Also, she wears some suits in “First Wives Club.”

          • annabelle archer

            I know past roles :)
            I mean now. Current Goldie.

            • alyce1213

              Sadly, there is a dearth of current Goldie Hawn movies.

          • Little_Olive

            I love that awful movie. “There are three ages in Hollywood: Babe, DA and Driving Miss Daisy”. Man, she delivers.

            • alyce1213

              That was a really funny line! That awful movie has the best cast, which makes it not so awful, I guess.

            • annabelle archer

              Let’s all appreciate, for just a moment, that SJP was the bimbo, gold digging, “younger” woman. Which sadly means, it’s about time for a remake.

            • demidaemon

              I love that movie. I’ve never read the book, never want to, and don’t care what anyone else says. Like Death Becomes Her. It’s awesome just because.

              I don’t care what the rest of you say. I also hope there is never a remake.

            • formerlyAnon

              No remake.
              Exhibit A: “The Women”
              Case closed.

    • Jacquelyn

      It’s a fun print. Yes to drinks!

    • decormaven

      Aww, she’s like the big sun in the Teletubbies show. You always smile when you see her. She stays in the same trajectory, and that’s all right with me.

    • hillmad

      I’ve always loved her! She’s Goldie, dammit! (in Eddie Murphy-as-Gumby voice)

    • elirt

      Daytime drunk! Ha! She does seem like a lot of fun, she seems like she’d be a hoot to hang out with.

    • Judy_S

      If I had seen this picture right after watching a premiere episode of Laugh-in, I would recognize her and think, gosh, she really turned out to be an attractive woman–with great taste in clothes, too. (There wasn’t much to her on Laugh-in, in my august early-teens opinion.)

      • LaSylphide

        There often wasn’t much ON her; remember the bikini-clad body painting? Hopelessly un-PC today, of course. My favorite Goldie, though, has always been that massive laugh.

        • Judy_S

          Yeah, I was going to say “she cleaned up real nice” but maybe she still has the body paint under the caftan!

    • wisenhar

      “All bottles, and gallon jugs”
      “I had guests”
      “Who? Guns N’ Roses?”

    • Dawn Sinclair

      It’s Goldie, dressed as a mellon – what’s not to luff?

    • Getoverit

      I love that she is always smiling!

    • alyce1213

      I love her, always have, always will.

      • annabelle archer

        So much so that I had instant carry love for Kate Hudson. The second I saw her on screen (200 Cigarettes) I was smitten by her genetically superior charms.

    • KateShouldBeWorking

      Anyone in her vicinity who is NOT throwing her a party is doing it wrong.

    • Jacqueline Wessel

      She looks great and she can still go sleeveless…I am jealous.

    • PostsYouCanDanceTo

      I dig people like Goldie Hawn, Diane Keaton and even, yes, the Olson Twins who so thoroughly have a style that’s theirs and don’t care what you think. Style is less about the clothes and more the person in the clothes. ‘Chic’ is great and all (really!), but it’s people who dress entirely for themselves or take risks or just play that make me do a little fist pump in celebration.

      (Not to be confuse with people like Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus, whose style at least appears to be dictated in no small part by the art of spectacle and being seen. Which is fine, but the ones I really dig dress for themselves. It’s a very fine line and it’s often unclear which side someone is on or if they are straddling it, but when someone like Goldie is so clearly in love with her look then that’s just great.)

      • demidaemon

        I agree with you on everything but the Olsen Twins. I agree they have their own style. I still hate it.

    • Rand Ortega

      She’s so fab. Can you just imagine the stories? The tales from “Shampoo” alone must be worth the best bottle of Dom.

    • Cele Deemer

      I’d like to have lunch with Goldie!

      • alyce1213

        I want to have a sleepover. With pajamas and drinks and snacks.

    •!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      Day drunk with Goldie!

      This woman has been around forever and I’m sure she doesn’t need advice on updating her image. She looks like she’s having a blast, and I hope when I’m her age I have the grace to gently pat people on the head when they think I should tone it down. I hope to grow old disgracefully and if other folks find that embarrassing they’re free to behave as sedately as they like and kindly keep their opinions to themselves.

      • BuffaloBarbara


      • conniemd

        Growing old disgracefully. I love it. I hope to be one of those inappropriate women when I hit my 70’s (60 comes in a few weeks) who speaks my mind and occasionally embarrasses people when I talk about men and sausage Friday. :)

        • formerlyAnon

          You & me both.

    • jilly_d

      her hair has always reminded me of the grey, female stray dog with the smokey voice from Lady & The Tramp. I’m not sure if it’s good or bad, but that’s what always comes to mind when I see her.

      • StellaZafella

        That was actually the voice of her great friend, Miss Peggy Lee…Both would take this as a compliment.

      • sleah_in_norcal

        that’s peg, the pekingese. my friend and i used to collect plastic dogs from lady in the the tramp that came in boxes of rice krispies. peg was my favorite, i was always so thrilled to get a plastic peg the pekingese.

    • LaSylphide

      If I’m having a bad day, I just Google Goldie and feast on that smile. She always cheers me up.

    • kimmeister

      The top of that dress is digging into her in an unfortunate way.

      This is the most random reference, but something about her face is reminding me of Gregory Itzin.

    • sagecreek

      I just love her.

      I was 8 years old when she was on Rowan and Martin. She looked better than I did then, and she looks better than I do now. She’s Goldie. And I love her.

    • largishbearishAtlish

      Adorbs! Thank you for posting… this picture(s) alone made me smile. Love you Goldie! you instantly laugh and smile when you see this confection of a woman.

      • StellaZafella

        Goldie Hawn is one of those rare people who can transmit their enjoyment of life along to the rest of us by just standing there, smiling that smile.

    • Rachael

      Has she EVER heard of sunscreen? I’m aware that her look is California hippie chic, but good grief, her skin screams melanoma!

      • Adriana_Paula

        Well, she was a young woman during the coconut-oil seventies, so there’s no turning back the clock even if she’s a religious sunscreen-user now.

    • formerlyAnon

      I only hope that she truly IS half as cheerful and upbeat as she knows how to appear. I, personally, am starting to get creeped by the difference between her face and the rest of her body, while simultaneously loving that she does not deign to hide aging arm/chest skin under various sheer layers as do some (and as would be easy to do fashionably right now.)

      So I am well-disposed towards her. It helps that friends who worked in various service jobs in Colorado and got to observe her and her family when the kids were young said that she was personally enormously self-disciplined (sticking to her diet and exercise regime even though none of the rest of the family followed it – she’d be drinking water and eating vegetarian while Kurt and the other adults drank alcohol, and the kids ate regular kid food) and a hands-on mom when with the kids.

    • ashtangajunkie

      God, I just love her. That hair is so perfectly Goldie Hawn and what’s not to love about that? She’s awesome.

    • JDreesen

      when you say “mid-afternoon”…you mean, like, ten a.m., right?

      …either way that’s when i’m going to show up and start doing some drinking.

    • Laurie Landry

      Bless her that’s one ugly mumu.

    • How to Faint

      Oh, man. I want a snake belly and Doritos print dress.

    • e jerry powell

      “You know what? She’s Goldie. She don’t give a shit. She’s gonna stand
      there and wave and laugh like you all just threw a party for her.”

      And that’s what’s so lovable about her.

    • marshmallowjane

      Everyone loves Goldie. It’s too bad she can’t bottle whatever it is that she has.

      But her moo-moo is too full for her, and the shade of these colors do NOTHING for her complexion. The fabric looks cheap and clownish.

      She could do better without much effort. I’d like to see her bangs trimmed just a little bit and her hair pulled back into a casual but neat knot or a ponytail with added hair— if needed.

    • demidaemon

      I am so glad to see Goldie stepping out more and seeing her featured here. Viva la Goldie!

    • Trisha26

      Her hair looks great! If I were going to critique anything I would point out the poochy-skin above the bodice (does this not bother her?) but she’s Goldie, so I won’t.

    • Alloy Jane

      I wish she would do something. Kurt Russell still works, why doesn’t she? I grew up watching Goldie Hawn movies (OVERBOARD!!!) and I can’t think of anything beyond First Wives Club that she’s done. I <3 that movie, my favorite part was that Diane Keaton's cheating husband was the dad from 7th Heaven. Too funny!

    • ThatPeterG

      She’s turned into Robin Byrd (Late night NYC cable-watchers will know that reference)….

      • mhleta

        I was going to say she’s turned into JoAnne Worley. (Old people will know what I mean.)

    • Dorothy & Michael n/a

      She really needs to make another movie soon.

    • Nick Pilgrim

      The crazy nastyass honey badger don’t give a shit.
