Jane Fonda has combined her passion for activism and her status as a fashion icon.
In the new issue of Interview magazine the 82-year-old actress was ultra-chic in a photo-shoot that accompanied her discussion about politics with Pose star Indya Moore.
During her interview Jane, who racked up a string of high-profile arrests at climate protests last year, Indya discussed the impact of her activism on her choice of clothes. 'We have to not waste so much. We have to be satisfied with less. I’m trying to not buy anything new anymore, no new clothing,' she told Indya, 25.

'But I also understand that I can say that because I still wear what I wore 30 years ago, and I have a lot of clothes, so it’s easy for me. Pay attention to what you buy.'
In one breathtaking snapshot she modeled a scarlet blazer and dress combo by Michael Kors and struck a power pose for the camera.
She teamed that ensemble with a pair of black leather stiletto boots from Saint Laurent By Vaccarello, plus Cartier hoop earrings.
The workout tape queen showed off her still enviably figure in a tight black Bottega Veneta dress as well as a pair of gloves from her own wardrobe in another snap.

Jane also discussed her self-confessed 'privilege' while looking back on her political activism in the 1960s and 1970s.
Although she says she found herself on a 'gray list' where 'studios didn’t really want to work with me' she was shielded to an extent by her background.
'I mean, look, I have to be very honest. I am Henry Fonda’s daughter. I have always had privilege. When it was very slow going in terms of my ability to earn a living, I had savings that I could fall back on,' she said.

'I don’t want to pretend that I was scraping nickels and dimes together. I lived pretty close to the bone for quite a while, but I always knew I could make it. I have to say that. My privilege protected me a lot,' Jane shared.
'My home was broken into. I was followed for a number of years. We had a lot of death threats. We had to have someone turn on our car remotely before we would get in it, because we were afraid that bombs had been planted.'
She was then married to fellow activist Tom Hayden who was in the 'Chicago Seven' and was convicted of crossing state lines to incite a riot at the 1968 Democratic National Convention, although the conviction was later overturned.
While discussing the Black Lives Matter movement which she viewed 'from afar because of the pandemic,' Jane also chatted with Indya about her role as a celebrity supporter of the Black Panther Party decades ago.
