When I Grow Up….

Advanced Style: Age and Beauty on Nowness.com.

In a recent video for Nowness, produced in partnership with the excellent blog, Advanced Style, Iris Apfel and crew tell us all how it’s done.

I enjoy looking at and thinking about advertising campaigns as much as I enjoy the editorial contents of a magazine (you won’t hear me complain about seeing too many ads in a fashion magazine); this recent one by Eileen Fisher in the most recent T magazine stopped me in my tracks…the model is so lovely and confidently self-possessed in this picture and it made me really think differently about the brand. Did anyone else read and enjoy the NYT article last fall about middle-aged women and long hair?


While I confess to plucking out the few that occasionally crop up on my own twenty-something head, I love these long, silvery strands. It’s so otherwordly and feminine. I just wish it would happen all at once!
