Just wanted to take a quick moment to share this wonderfully inspiring story, which I just watched this morning on The Today Show. Photographer Ari Seth Cohen is promoting his new book, “Advanced Style,” featuring women “who pride themselves on looking fabulous and aging gracefully.” I just think these ladies are the epitome of the Fab Housewife motto, and even carry it over into the next phase of life. 91-year-old fashion icon, Iris Apfel, a style icon and self-proclaimed “geriatric starlet” said it best: “I think it’s wonderful he’s doing this for us. Not only for us, but for all those poor ladies out there who think that after a certain age, they have to roll up and die or look like their wearing widows weeds.”
These girls just make me smile. Oh, the things I could learn from spending one afternoon with them. Check out the video interview below, and tell me what your think.
P.S. How envious are we of Elona’s high kicks?
And remember ladies, “if your hair is done properly, and you’re wearing good shoes, you can get away with anything.” -Iris Apfel
