Is the fashion industry finally embracing the older woman? Images of 80-year-old Joan Didion as the new face of Céline and Joni Mitchell, 71, modeling for Saint Laurent have been the talk of the town this week. It’s incredible to see so many older faces taking over the world of fashion advertising. This shift in the portrayal of aging in popular media hopefully signifies a broader change in societal attitudes towards, and treatment of, the elderly. Bravo!
