She’s known for her inimitable fashion sense nearly as much as her slew of iconic film roles.
And Diane Keaton didn’t disappoint on Saturday when she stepped out for some fresh air with her Golden Retriever Reggie by her side.
The 75-year-old Oscar winner bundled up in a long black overcoat while taking a walk in coastal Santa Monica.

Keaton stayed on theme with a black turtleneck that was tucked into her high-waisted black-and-white gingham pants.
She contrasted that pattern with a set of black polka-dotted shoes, and the headwear aficionado sported a stately wide-brimmed black hat.
She blocked out the sun with black sunglasses and had her black mask pulled down below her mouth, though she kept plenty of distance between herself and others.

As with many Hollywood stars, Keaton’s career has slowed down amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
However, her romantic comedy Love, Weddings & Other Disasters was released in December.
The movie, which was shot prior to the start of the pandemic, featured a convoluted plot in which Keaton’s character was dumped by her boyfriend in the middle of a sky-diving jump, just before she accidentally lands on a TV news reporter in the midst of his wedding ceremony
After being dubbed the ‘wedding crasher,’ she’s hired as a wedding planner for a mayoral candidate (Jeremy Irons).
The film, from the director of Happy Gilmore and Jack And Jill, was lambasted by critics and sports a four-percent rotten rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Despite the low ratings, Keaton recently reevaluated another one of her critically under appreciated films.
Late last year, the actress looked back on her role in Francis Ford Coppola’s film The Godfather Part III, which was reedited by the filmmaker and retitled as Mario Puzo’s The Godfather, Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone.
‘It was one of the best moments of my life to watch it,’ Keaton enthused to Variety after seeing the film at a private screening Coppola put on at the Paramount lot for herself and her original costars Al Pacino, Talia Shire and George Hamilton.
‘To me it was a dream come true. I saw the movie in a completely different light,’ she continued
Career high: ‘It was one of the best moments of my life to watch it,’ Keaton enthused to Variety late last year after a screening of Francis Ford Coppola’s recut version of The Godfather Part III
‘When I saw it way back, it was like “Oh, I don’t know.” It didn’t seem to do that well and the reviews weren’t great. But Francis restructured the beginning and the end and man, I’m telling you it worked.’
Although the film was a commercial success, earning nearly $137 million against a $54 million budget, many critics were unimpressed with it, particularly compared to the first two Godfather films, which are widely regarded as masterpieces.
Keaton was among the crowd who didn’t originally care for the Godfather finale.
‘I don’t know why people didn’t appreciate it, but I was one of them,’ she admitted. ‘What was wrong with me? Why didn’t I like this before? But I didn’t. I kind of just dismissed it and thought, “oh well.”‘
Changes: Director Francis Ford Coppola has recut the film, retitling it Mario Puzo’s The Godfather, Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone. The original version left critics cold in 1990, though it was still a box office hit
