FFashion is not about wearing size 2 – 6 clothes on a body endowed with flawless skin. Fashion is all about reflecting one’s own sense of style and about staying current with the latest fashion trends. The definition of being fashionable is different for varying people. While some can carry a red lipstick and matching nail polish with ease and simply rock the occasion, others look more stylish with a Lady Diana approach – soft and elegant.
So being fashionable is discovering what suits your personality and what brings out the charm that is hidden inside you. And quite contrary to what most people think nowadays, fashion has nothing to do with age. In fact thanks to the media, which is present everywhere and all the time, we have illustrative evidence, which proves that for many people in the world, the sense of style and fashion only improves with the age. The more mature and experienced a person gets, the better his/her style becomes. Below are the names of few women who are over 50 and are still rocking the world with their fashion sense.
Perhaps the most admirable is Ruth Kobin, who is surprisingly over 100 and still looks ravishing with her bright red lipstick and chunky gold chain necklaces. The mystery behind her rejuvenating health is her approach to life and of course a day of Pilates every week. How she still manages to look fashionable and enjoy life at this age is a secret known to her alone. She and other ‘Ari’s Girls’ are often featured on the cover of magazines simply because they continue to make headlines with their zeal and fashion sense.
But let’s take a look at some of the other celebrities who are more well known to the general public; the Queen of England for instance. Although she was never considered ‘fashion-less’, her sense of style has undoubtedly increased manifolds, as she has gotten older. Or how about Iris Apfel? An interior designer by profession is now a fashion icon. She has turned 92 this year but still hasn’t given up on her striking fashionable demeanor? Her bold sense of style is aptly in keeping with her personality.
Some other names of older ladies who remain on top of the current fashion news are actresses Tilda Swinton (52), Diane Keaton (67) and Helen Mirren (68). Then there are other ladies who are already related to the fashion world through their profession like stylist Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele (63), designer Miuccia Prada (64), fashion editor Anna Dello Russo (51), journalist Diane Sawyer (67), model Iman (58) and of course French Vogue editor-in-chief Carine Roitfeld (58).
Now, if this isn’t proof enough that style and sense of fashion progresses with age, then what is?
