Sharon Stone on Sunday revealed a new cover shoot for Icon magazine to her 3.4 million Instagram followers.
The 64-year-old actress went under a long-sleeved black dress for the dramatic picture.
The Basic Instinct star wore a short white skirt under body-hugging outfits and high heels.

She also wore a detailed headdress as she posed for a selfie with her hands on her hips.
The post captioned, “Thank you @icon.magazin and our team!”
The black and white photo was taken on a marble floor with two large panels hanging against an ivy wall as a backdrop.
Earlier this week, the Primetime Emmy Award winner revealed that she will undergo surgery to remove a large tumor.
The Latest: Stone took to Instagram to encourage her followers to ask for a second opinion after a ‘large fibroid’ was found in her body — filmed in Los Angeles in June
Stone took to Instagram Stories Tuesday with a personal message about her health
Stone took to Instagram Stories Tuesday with a personal message about her health, saying that she “just had another misdiagnosis and incorrect procedure”, and had gone to a “double epidural” to treat her pain.
She then encouraged her followers to seek second opinions after she said a “large fibroid” was found in her body after a wrong medical diagnosis.
The Oscar-nominated said that amid the “worsening pain,” she sought a second opinion from a different doctor who revealed she had “a large fibroid that had to come out.”
This comes 21 years after the beauty suffered a brain haemorrhage and a stroke that nearly killed her.
The Total Recall star addressed women directly and wrote: Ladies in particular: Don’t get carried away. Get a second opinion. It can save your life.’
Stone said she would “take a 4-6 week break for a full recovery,” and thanked fans for their care, adding, “All is well.”
This isn’t the first time the Sliver actress has spoken publicly about her health issues.
In her 2021 autobiography The Beauty of Living Twice in 2001, benign tumors were removed from her body, which she described as “giant” and “larger than my chest alone.”

She said that following the medical procedure, a plastic surgeon performed on her larger breasts that she had approved for breast reconstruction surgery after tumors were removed.
Stone also suffered a stroke and a cerebral hemorrhage in 2001 when she was 43 years old.
Stone appeared on The Today Show in March 2021, sharing the details of critical moments while she was hospitalized and told by a doctor that she nearly died.
“The room was very silent,” Stone said. “When the room is so silent and no one is running around trying to fix you, that’s when you realize how close death is and how dangerous everything is.”
Stone achieved fame in the 1992 movie Basic Instinct opposite Michael Douglas
Stone will continue to recover, but said the stroke affected her career and the way others treated her.
She told Variety in 2019: ‘People have treated me very harshly. Women and what it takes to recover – it took about seven years.
She added: ‘I had to re-mortgage my house. I lost everything I have. I lost my place at work. I was like the hottest movie star, you know? It was like being Miss Princess Diana so famous – and she died and had a stroke. We have forgotten.
Earlier this year, Stone also revealed that she had lost nine children to a miscarriage.
The actress – who is mother to three sons Rowan, 22, Laird, 17, and Quinn, 16, through adoption – insists that women feel the loss of a child is ‘something to bear alone and secretly with a sense of shame’.
In an Instagram comment, she wrote: “We, as females, do not have a forum to discuss how deep this loss is. I have lost nine children due to miscarriage. It’s no small feat, either physically or emotionally, but we feel like it’s something we put up with alone and secretly with a kind of sense of failure. Instead of receiving the compassion, empathy, and healing we so desperately need. Women’s health and wellness in the care of male ideology became lax at best, ignorant of reality, and violently oppressive in the effort.
What are fibroids?
Fibroids are tumors that grow in or around the uterus.
In 99% of cases, non-cancerous tumors consist of fibrous and muscle tissue and vary in size.
Many women don’t know they have fibroids because two out of three women don’t have any symptoms.
Those showing signs of fibroids may experience heavy or painful periods, abdominal pain, lower back pain, the need to urinate frequently, constipation and pain or discomfort during sex.
In rare cases, complications can affect pregnancy or cause infertility.
It is believed that 20 to 50 percent of women between the ages of 16 and 50 have had fibroids at any time.
About three-quarters of them will develop fibroids at some point during these childbearing years.
But only a third of them are large enough to be detected by doctors during a physical exam.
Doctors don’t know why fibroids develop. But they believe growth is related to the female reproductive hormone estrogen, with levels being at their highest during the childbearing years.
It tends to shrink when estrogen levels are low, such as after menopause, so it’s not treated unless it’s causing symptoms.
Treatment includes medications to relieve discomfort and shrink the growths, or surgery if these medications don’t work.
