Style is not only about what you wear, but also how you carry yourself.This woman was walking on the Upper West Side with a friend when I noticed her from afar. I loved her look, but her confident pose stands out above everything else.
While I am out photo-hunting on the Upper West Side, I always like to stop by Lynn Dell’s Off Broadway Boutique. She has the most stylish customers, including the beautiful lady above.This glamorous woman told me that she had seen me on The Today Show and I replied that I would love to take her photograph, but that she seemed way too young. When she told me that she had a 40 year old son, I knew that she fit the bill. I was excited to capture her dazzling style to share with all of you.
When I got back home I reflected on this experience. I know that people are often told that they are too old to model and represent fashion, style and beauty. I wonder how it feels when I tell an older person that they are too young to appear on Advanced Style? Do they take this as a compliment? Is youth the only valued stage of life? 80 year old Joyce always tells me that, ” To Age is a Privilege.” I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to get old.
I was out walking when I noticed this woman and her beautiful red hat a few blocks ahead of me. I quickly ran up to her and asked if I could take her photograph. I told her that I loved her red hat and she replied, ” I don’t usually wear hats, but this one is my favorite. Everyone compliments it.” I am always on the look out for a great hat!
I’m heading to bed early because I have an exciting day ahead of me. Ruth, Jacquie, Ilona, Joyce and I are going to be featured on The Today Show between 9 and 10am. These four very special women, also appearing in my upcoming book and documentary, will be representing ageless style. I will post a clip of our television debut as soon it appears online tomorrow!
