Garance Doré, The Sartorialist, Café Mode, Nizza Girl are all wonderful fashion blogs but....
So is

Ari Seth Cohen, in his Thirties,  roams the streets of New York looking for the most stylish women; under 24 , you would add. Well, NO.
This is how you happen to realize that you don't have to be young to be stylish.
When 70 and far above, God you have style !

This beautiful woman is ONLY 80 !!!!!

What about being ..... 82 ?!

A light 78 years .

Lynn Dell

"Lynn Dell believes living is a party to be enjoyed and she dresses every day as if she was invited to the biggest and best of them.

Her credo: "Dress for the theatre of your life." "

as she reports on

This woman is absolutely AMAZING !

Youth seems almost old fashioned compared with the beauty of age. These women have attitude, class, elegance, glamour.
They are fascinating, inspired.

Hélène Rochas is one of those etraordinarily elegant women of Paris. She still kills you with her turquoise blue eyes.

Hélène Rochas : pure style.

Colour suits them. As Coco CHANEL used to say with disdain :
" I find nothing more aging than trying to look young."

Jacqueline de Ribes :  no fear of making an entrance.

And fashion seems like architecture : a matter of proportions.

" I think it is fabulous to a woman because no matter how much we achieve, regardless of how many ladders we climb, we are still women and we get to celebrate our feminity by dressing up."
said Marisa Berenson.

" When you wake up you think what you're going to project that day- but you always dress to seduce."
Diane Von Furstenberg

"Style is knowing what suits you, who you are and what are your assets. It is also accepting it all. " 
Bianca Jagger

" I prefer couture clothes because they are better made. It's the difference between a brick house and a prefabricated hut. "
Ines de la Fressange.


What a lesson !
