Alfred Hitchcock's former leading lady, Kim Novak, reappeared at last night's Oscars after a long absence from the glitzy awards ceremony she used to attend in her heyday.
The Vertigo star, who was almost unrecognizable in a cobalt blue and black pantsuit, joined Matthew McConaughey in presenting the Best Animated Short Film and Best Animated Feature Film awards. Although she flubbed a couple of her lines, she made it through okay with the help of her trusty partner!
Though Novak prefers to remain out of the spotlight -- her last film credit was for 1991's Liebestraum -- the 81-year-old has quite the career to look back on. Relive some of those highlights below!
Novak's breakthrough role was in the 1955 drama Picnic, based on the play of the same name, in which she portrayed Madge Owens opposite William Holden.
The actress went on to win a Golden Globe for Most Promising Newcomer the same year Picnic was released.
Her film with Frank Sinatra, The Man with the Golden Arm, was also released in 1955.
In 1958, Novak won her most famous role in Alfred Hitchcock's thriller Vertigo, which co-starred Jimmy Stewart.
Novak starred in the 1964 drama Of Human Bondage alongside Laurence Harvey. She married her first husband, Richard Johnson, a year later but the couple divorced soon after.
The star attended the 51st Academy Awards in 1979. She married second husband Dr. Robert Malloy in 1976, and the couple are still together after 38 years.
The actress attends a Vertigo screening in 2004.
In 2012, she was immortalized with a hand and footprint ceremony at Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.
