Talk about a purple reign! The 1923 star stunned in a frothy, purple Dolce & Gabbana gown and opera coat. In a 2022 interview with AARP, she said playing the fashion game never gets tiresome: “It’s energizing. I’ve always loved clothes, and I love dressing up. I’ve always loved costumes too. One of my favorite places to go is a costume house. I love the artist’s animal nature of clothes.”​
