Monday Love: Young at heart










Old, bold, BEAUTIFUL!
Aren't these women great? To me, they are proof that every season in life can be lived, enjoyed and celebrated in style. One of them is a legendary Yoga teacher, another one (1st. image) a famous model. But all of them are supertstars when it comes to giving  us new inspiration when it comes to staying attractive, fearless and young at heart. Also, they remind me of my own grandmother, who was an artist and a strong, beautiful woman, who kept being creative and interested in life for the whole of her 97 years. 

These are all photographed in New York City by Ari Seth Cohen, creator of the blog Advanced Style. "Respect your elders and let these ladies and gents teach you a thing or two about living life to the fullest." he says, and shows fashionistas that are up to a 100 years old. If you want to find out more about how good heels can look on 90 years old ladies and how to wear silver hair with pride hop over and have a look!

  17. People have this fixated idea that when they get old they will wrinkle and they will lose their looks. The photos you showed say differently, when people get old most of them die, from the inside. That is the source of beauty, if you ask me.
