Non Ageist Style

One thing we have in common is growing older.  Its inevitable and I look forward to it (given the other option!)...But I do so love to see pictures of ladies that have 'aged' with style.  Stunning in their youth, now over 40 and still looking superb with 'effortless' style, a great haircut, and makeup to suit.  Some inspiration for all of us I think.

Although we can't all look like Claudia or Christy, it's finding a niche, our look, our essence and sticking to it I think, (just updated along the way).

As Carine says in W magazines' The Client " when she's trying on a range of clothing - "...its not me"... she's knows that although the blazer is gorgeous, it's just not suited to her.   It's that knowledge and intuition that we can now tap into, with 'age'.  (I found the link via Ada's fabulous blog! - thanks Ada.)

Thank you for the fabulous inspiration. Its always good to remember to be true to ourselves. We don't need botox, face lifts, fake tans and teeth. Age gracefully accept who you are and you will shine from within.

What a fabulous post!
This is precisely what I miss the most in Fashion magazines! Like there was nothing for women after 40's?
Absolutely wonderful!

Glamour, sophistication and strength - that's what I find in these women. How inspirational of you to put such a group together. The world may go gooey eyed over the new 17-year old "IT" girl, but I'm with you: beauty is ageless.
