Jean Smart is being dubbed an "ageless queen" by fans.

On Monday evening, the "Hacks" actress celebrated her birthday — she turned 71 on Tuesday — at the 74th Primetime Emmy Awards. For the awards ceremony, she wore a stunning white, off-the-shoulder, long-sleeve Christian Siriano gown. She paired the dress with black stilettos, and a gorgeous old Hollywood glam-inspired hair and makeup look.

Siriano took to Twitter ahead of the event to share a photo of Smart in the gown, calling her "the most divine."

Fans quickly swooned over photos of Smart's timeless look on social media, and applauded her for "never aging."

"Jean Smart never looked lovelier," one Twitter user responded. "That dress, along with her hair and overall styling just looked incredible and classic."

"The hair style and dress is so elegant and put together well. Jean Smart looks great," added another.

"Hands down, best dressed of the evening. Bravo," someone else wrote.

"Jean Smart! This woman never ages," one Instagram user pointed out. "So beautiful and timeless!"

"May I look this good at her age," another fan chimed in.

On top of the praise Smart garnered for her fabulous look, she also went home with the prestigious award for outstanding lead actress in a comedy series, for her role in the HBO Max show "Hacks."

"I am so blown away by our writers who not only matched season one but surpassed it," she said, after accepting the award from Regina Hall, adding that her fellow nominee, Rachel Brosnahan, sent her a gift ahead of the Emmys that might've prevented her from fitting into any "dress in Hollywood."

"She's very classy, she sent me this box of these unbelievable designer cookies, they're like 5 lbs. each — and I thought that was so nice and classy until I realized that she was hoping that I wouldn't be able to fit into a single dress in Hollywood," she joked. "Thanks anyway."
