Jamie Lee Curtis has sparked mixed reaction with a Tom Ford dress worn in an issue of British Vogue.

For the February issue of the fashion bible, the 64-year-old star modelled a daring, cutaway dress by American designer Ford. Exposing parts of her body with sheer fabric, the gown showcased Curtis' honed frame - a fact that many social media users celebrated.

Numerous fans were quick to praise the actor after Vogue posted the image to its Instagram page, with one person writing: “Always gorgeous!”

“She looks amazing,” another added. “A beautiful, strong woman who still has a great body and is obviously proud of it. Good for her. You can look fabulous at any age.”

“JLC has always been an absolute Queen,” a third wrote.

"What a dress, what a woman," a fourth person commented.

But not all of the comments were as supportive, with some Instagram users taking aim at the dress of choice and Curtis' age.

"Of all the dresses they could have put her in," wrote one user. "Talented, gorgeous woman... hideous dress!" commented another.

"The dress [is] not flattering at all," another added. "Why she is dressed in this way while she could make the most of what she is, in a more sophisticated manner. I am sorry. Big mistake."

"Not at all flattering," commented a fourth person.

The 64-year-old actor was featured in British Vogue’s annual Hollywood Portfolio which looks to celebrate 31 actors at the top of their game ahead of the 2023 awards season. Curtis has been nominated for Best Supporting Actress in Everything Everywhere All at Once at this year’s Golden Globes - and similar chances at accolades this awards season are expected.

In the issue, which is on newsstands on January 24, Curtis said the advice she would give her younger self is: “The same advice I give young people who want to do what I get to do: ‘It’s so f***ing fast – you will be shocked at how fast it all is. Try to be in the present moment.’”

Curtis’ dress is reminiscent of the cutaway dress Jennifer Lopez wore to the premiere of her Netflix special, Halftime, last year - which was also designed by Tom Ford.
