Jane Fonda rang in her 80th birthday in one of her freshest looks yet.

The actress threw a big bash over the weekend, and while the event was worthy of a glamorous gown, the ever-unpredictable Fonda instead went with a suit. It was a look that seemed to sprout from a high-end fashion collaboration between a Blues Brother and Jay Gatsby.

While this birthday party wasn’t as public as the star-studded soiree she had a few weeks ago to raise money for her foundation Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Power and Potential, attendees like Chelsea Handler gave fans a sneak peek at this weekend’s party and the guest of honor’s outfit.

Handler posted a photo of herself and the Oscar winner at the event, which she deemed a “great f***ing party,” on Instagram. In the snap, Fonda is wearing black slacks, a white dress shirt, suspenders, and a loosened tie. Ever in character, Fonda had a jacket swung over her shoulder, and a fedora sat atop her head, making the look even more gangster than it was already.

Happy birthday @janefonda #happybirthday #80thbirthday #funparty

Interior designer David Phoenix also shared shots from the Los Angeles event. In one, Fonda can be seen onstage in her fedora and suspenders, gripping an old-fashioned microphone. We can only imagine what was happening at that moment, but it looks like she was singing a song from Guys and Dolls. He also posted photos of the gorgeous floral cakes created for Fonda’s big night.

Bottom line: It looks like the activist and actress, who remarkably becomes an octogenarian on Dec. 21, was having a ball, which is exactly what she deserves.
