Jane Seymour has been gracing red carpets for nearly five decades, but that hasn’t made it any easier for the star to find fashion designers to dress her these days.

Seymour, who shot to fame as Bond girl Solitaire in the 1973 James Bond film “Live and Let Die,” revealed that her fashion options have dwindled as she ages. 

“I was never paid by a designer to wear anything, although nowadays not every designer will dress someone my age,” she told Britain’s The Guardian Tuesday. 

Her solution? Simply repurposing her stylish wardrobe, which is normally taboo in Hollywood.

“I don’t care whether re-wearing clothes is acceptable or not – if I’m feeling the dress and the occasion, and if it fits, then I’ll wear it again,” Seymour added.

The struggle to find designers is somewhat new to “The Kominsky Method” star. In her heyday, Seymour said she was loaned gowns from notable designers, including Gianni Versace, who let her borrow pieces that he made for his sister, Donatella, because they wore the same size. 

Despite the challenge of finding something to wear, Seymour told Playboy she feels “sexier” now than she did when she was younger after posing for the adult magazine for the third time last year. (She previously posed for the magazine’s July 1973 and January 1987 issues.)

“There’s an enormous freedom in having lived as long as I have. Like my father used to say, I’m comfortable in my own skin,” she said.
