Romero’s Mom

I have been excited to meet makeup artist, Romero Jennings’, gorgeous mother ever since someone tagged #advancedstyle on a photo of her from his instagram page. I have been following their stylish adventures ever since. Nancy was an absolute joy to photograph and didn’t even complain when we took her outside on a cold winter’s day to take some more shots. I asked Romero to share a few words about his stunning mother below:

My mom was born in Panama in the 30″ but lived a big portion of her life in Jamaica. The influence of both cultures makes her an excellent cook! Nancy comes from a line of stylish women. Her mother made all her own clothing which allowed her to spend plenty of money on beautiful shoes
and jewelry!

Nancy loves hearing all my tales of life backstage at fashion
week! She feels somehow that she is there with me in spirit. She especially loves
to find out what is hot and what is not! My mom has always been know for her  signature red or shocking pink
lipstick and a generous coat of mascara topped off with translucent face

 Of course her favorite makeup brand is M.A.C cosmetics and her go
to lipsticks are Candy Yum Yum , which she is wearing in the photos, and
her favorite red lipstick -relentlessly red! She has a passion for huge oversized eyeglasses which has now become her signature! Nancy has a passion for fashion and feels that leopard is a neutral that goes with everything! At 75-year-old she still loves going to work every single day.

  • I would love to know where she gets her over-sized glasses. I did a recent search for them where I live and couldn't find anything close to big and/or flashy.

    I love your blog and all the woman you feature.

  • True inspiration!

  • Neat lady!

    Nancy is the epitome of lovely. She knows how to made an outfit pop, and her face looks great for a woman of 7+ decades. She is the Audrey Hepburn type, and I adore that type of lady. I bet she is lovely from the inside out as well. Great style, Nancy!

  • I absolutely adore her skirt

  • A few months ago I tried to get the Advanced style-Movie to our local cinema, but it was not possible. Today I got the movie as a Christmasgift from a friend and it's wonderful.

  • What a fabulous woman. Happy Christmas, Ari!

  • Wishing you a magical Christmas time . Love and kisses. Monse from Spain.

  • Happy to hear she still goes to work at 75! That's my goal as well!

  • She is stunning!! I love her style!

  • Omg! She is a diva! I can only hope to look half as stylish, elegant & pretty at 75
