Manuela Muguerza García-Moreno

About a month ago I received this message on Facebook from an incredibly glamorous woman living in Buenos Aires:

Dear Mr. Cohen:
I just watched your documentary and am delighted to know there are more women like me, interested in fashion and living life to its fullest.
I am ninety-three years old, live in Buenos Aires, Argentina, have travelled the world, but am Ecuadorian by origins.
I invite you to befriend me so we can stay in touch.
Cordially,Manuela Muguerza y García-Moreno

I was just about to put the finishing touches on my upcoming book, when I realized that it wouldn’t be complete without a photo of Manuela. I wrote her back asking if she would allow me to take her picture if I came to visit. As soon as she replied yes I booked a ticket to Buenos Aires excited for our stylish adventures. Manuela was even more stunning and elegant in person and it was truly an honor to photograph her. I can’t wait to share more from our shoot, including stories from her adventures with Dior in Paris in the 40s and 50s soon!

    Just love her sense of style and her love of life. We should all use her as an example. What lovely and positive lady. Her sense of style and glamour is just wonderful. Argentina- I just love the culture, the country, and the people, I've had the pleasure to meet. Ambassadors of a life worth living.

    She looks absolutely lovely, much like I remember women when I was growing up in the 1950s. Ladies, we must wear hats more often!

    I periodically pop into this site and just love it. I come for the beautiful pictures, the beautiful women and what I hope is how I will be in my later years. What a wonderful site.
