PIX: 40-something, and looking HOT in gowns!

While Bollywood has become more accepting of actresses who aren't in the prime of their youth anymore, women well into their 40s have taken to experimenting with their fashion choices.

Not that wearing a gown is really being experimental but it's exciting to see these divas ditch their ethnic numbers for an occasional gown at social dos.

Here's looking at 40-plus actresses, who work their gowns.

Sridevi

The English Vinglish actress, 49, has realy come into her own after a long and illustrious career in films.

Her Sabyasachi saris and other outfits are always impeccably put together.

At the Apsara awards held last year, the actress looked stunning in her Elie Saab gown.
