does it seem like you just watched The Labyrinth for the first time, and obsessed over Jennifer Connelly’s chic style, cool voice, and gorgeous dark-haired beauty? well, her role as Sarah in one of our favorite childhood classics was actually 1986, and the still-gorgeous actress turns 43 today.
we love the smart, varied roles she has taken on over the last 3 decades as an actress. we loved her as the savvy and smart Maddy in Blood Diamond. she won an oscar for her role as Alicia Nash in A Beautiful Mind. she is versatile in her talent, and stays under the radar much of the time by carefully choosing roles that are unconventional and thought provoking.
her style and look are truly one of a kind, a testament to that unforgettable quality that always keeps us intrigued by her. she keeps it simple, often seen in solid colors and clean silhouettes. she does push the envelope, though, having fun with plunging necklines and of-the-moment trends. her signature raven hair is typically seen one of two ways- naturally loose, or in a sleek and fuss-free updo. we love both looks and the way they make her bright green eyes and distinctive heavy brows stand out in a crowd.
