Gillian Anderson’s best looks, from sharp jumpsuits to dresses in rainbow hues

There’s an array of colours and elegant cuts among Gillian Anderson’s best looks. The actress has become more confident with her fashion choices during her decades-long glittering on-screen career, and we have seen her step out – everywhere from Oscars parties to Netflix premieres – in head-turning ensembles worthy of the Hollywood star that she is.

Anderson started her career on the stage in New York, before landing a leading role in the TV show The X-Files in the 1990s – for which she won an Emmy Award and a Golden Globe Award for her portrayal of Special Agent Dana Scully. She went on to win the same awards again for playing Margaret Thatcher in the series The Crown.
