I love when I ask someone if I can take their photograph and they proudly announce their age.I saw this stunning woman walking up Madison Avenue and after complimenting her gloves, I asked if I could take her photo. She replied, “I’m 86” and said that although she doesn’t usually stop for photos on the street that it sounded like a cute idea. I started a page on Advanced Style with photos of other women who aren’t afraid to tell their age, CLICK HERE to check it out.
Here is Lina Plioplyte’s latest video for Advanced Style featuring Lynn Dell, owner of the Off Broadway Boutique. I hope you enjoy these small clips as much as we enjoy putting them together.
I shot this portrait of designer and art collector, Christophe de Menil for a jewelry series on Vogue.jp. Christophe, 78, designed the pieces above as part of a collection based on sea creatures. She told me that she is inspired by, ” Real things that have scary aspects, things that are insanely wonderful”.
