“To Age Is A Privilege”


I stopped Joyce on the Upper West Side and asked her to share some of her style secrets.Joyce had some great advice, she said,”Style is about the right jewelry, the right know-how,the right neckline, and above all the right attitude.” I think its important to share the ages of my subjects whenever possible, so I asked Joyce if she minded telling me how old she is. She replied, “Of course not. To age is a privilege, I am 79 years old.”

  • Joyce is very stunning, and looks remarkable for her age. She does have style!

  • I agree, she has it ! and she wears some of my favorites : simple black sweater; grey hair !, pear long necklace.. super !

  • beautiful woman. such style.
    "to age is a privilege"…wise words, inspiring.

  • How true is that?? We worry so much about "getting old" that we don't stop to appreciate how lucky we are to have that privilege. There are many who don't get to grow old, and we should be thankful for the opportunity. Thanks for the excellent reminder!

  • I want to be like her when I grow up!
    I agree . . the right neckline and the right attitude are key!

    Why did I never see this before? Our culture has me blind-folded!

    I'd love to look like such a coquette-and look as amazing as Joyce does-when I'm 79!

    Thanks for the inspiration!

    I love how so many of the ladies you photograph do their makeup! You can tell they spend a fair bit time on it each day, and choose their products carefully. The way you photograph them tends to indicate that you, too, are impressed by their skills — many of which come with age and experience!

  • Dang!! I so needed this!!!!
    True beauty!!

  • Joyce is stunning, and so wise. Can I be like her when I grow up?

  • This is one of the most beautiful and delicate women I've seen so far. Love!

  • so lovely…she looks like an ageless elven lady from tolkiens silmarillion…

  • I want to be Joyce when I'm 79! Wait. Forget 79 – I want to be Joyce NOW! She is gorgeous and so stylish.

    What a lovely, elegant woman.

    I remember having a similar conversation with my cardiologist one time. We were talking about aging, and he said a bit ruefully, "We all get old."

    I added, "If we're lucky."

    He smiled. 🙂 He's got 25 years on me easy, and he smiled!

  • I couldn't agree more with Joyce. Having lost so many dear to me, who never lived to be "old", I am grateful for each birthday.
    Clearly Joyce's beauty is more than skin deep!

  • wow, she is incredibly beautiful!

  • Can I say CHANEL with a Diane von Furstenberg attitude!? I love it!

  • vee

    well joyce, would you also say that age is a privilege without the facelifts you´ve had?

    aging sucks, so all of us have to find sooner or later the right attitude, but.. pleeease, not that hypocritical way.

  • thankss i love you

  • Age is just a number. You're only as old as you believe you are and never let others discourage you

  • Eeek Vee! It takes courage to have face lifts and maybe Joyce likes to look how she feels. I do. I think Joyce is beautiful and don't care what work she has committed herself to; it is a privilege to admire her and I like her spirit.

  • EEEk Vee! It takes courage to have a facelift. Maybe Joyce likes to look how she feels. I do. I think it is a privilege to admire her and I think she is delightful and very brave. Joyce you are an inspiration! :))
