5.0 out of 5 stars Sass and the senior citizen, 10 Jun 2012
This review is from: Advanced Style (Hardcover)
Looking through this book, the word "refreshing" certainly springs to mind. Style blogger Ari Seth Cohen seeks inspiration in glamourous grandmothers and has scoured the streets of New York to photograph these doyennes of elegance with centuries of style between them. It is certainly a representation of challenging the often heard "I can't wear that because of my age". Models feature Ruth, who is 100 and enjoys pilates and weightlifting, writer and artist Beatrix, who resembles Vivienne Westwood with her dyed purple hair, accessories queen Mary, who believes in sunglasses over facelifts and Joyce, an 80 year old who wears fabulous gloves wherever she goes. This is truly delightful and empowering to women of all ages, in that it challenges the stereotypical views on age and ageing. I work with people who are over 65 and am constantly trying to lobby the establishment for its dated representations on what older adults want. With this book in my arsenal, they'll be no stopping me...
