Bette Midler, 72, is RED HOT!

By Sixty and Me October 18, 2018 News

Bette Midler, 72, has long been known for being outspoken and bold in everything that she does – including her fashion!

And as she stepped out for a night on the town at a recent event in New York City, her eye-catching outfit proved that she is continuing to embrace her bold sense of style!

Outspoken Style

Bette Midler has marched to the beat of her own drum for the majority of her multi-decade career – and has found incredible success in doing so!

A talented actress, singer, songwriter, comedian, and film producer, Midler’s career started in the ‘70s when she built up a huge following by performing at a local gay bathhouse in New York City, The Continental Baths.

From there, Midler went on to enjoy incredible success, earning three Grammy Awards, four Golden Globes, three Emmy Awards, two Tony Awards (among countless other accolades), and selling over 30 million records worldwide throughout her fifty-plus year-long career.

With her latest work being a role in Broadway’s revival of Hello, Dolly! for which she won a Tony Award in 2017, Midler doesn’t appear to be stepping out of the spotlight or toning down her boldness any time soon.

Proving that she has the ability to not only turn heads on-stage but also on the red carpet, Midler attended the Golden Heart Awards in New York City earlier this week wearing an incredibly glamorous and eye-catching ensemble.

Midler hit the red carpet wearing a bright red, sequined, floor-length gown that hugged her impressively fit physique. She accessorized her Hollywood-glam look with peep-toe gold heels, simple gold jewelry, and a silver clutch purse. Midler sported a trendy, fringed, platinum-blonde bob hairstyle and wore a classic red lip with simple black eyeliner to complete her stunning style.

Although Midler’s bold fashion sense always seems to be well-received, her recent, very-opinionated Tweets have been less well-received by fans and followers on social media.

The Hollywood legend came under fire after posting a Tweet that seemed to compare the plight of women to the plight of African-Americans, a claim that many people found very upsetting.

While Midler has since removed the offensive Tweet and posted several apologies, perhaps the starlet is better off using her outspoken attitude to inspire her fashion choices rather than her Tweets, as she truly did look remarkable in that bold, red-hot gown!
