Age Appropriate….


Gwyneth Paltrow for Harpers Bazaar 2012

I have a bee in my bonnet today due to a recent article in the LA Times “Image” section on Sunday. There it was in black and white on page 2 … slamming Gwyneth Paltrow on her choice of apparel during her recent book tour in LA.

 Seems that the peeps at “Image” feel that Ms. Paltrow wears her skirts and hot pants  a bit to short for a woman “her age.” At the end of the article the author asked for our thoughts. Well, I am so glad you did because I have a few myself on the matter.  If I may quote my  darling Mother (who is a fashion maven in her own right) “Good taste NEVER goes out of style.”  Funny, Mom never put any age constraints on that mantra.  I would like to add that I think Ms. Paltrow looks smashing and may even eclipse her look of 15 years earlier when she won her Academy Award.

Gwyneth and many of her contemporaries look great in their 40’s and 50’s. There are women in their 20’s without legs and arms as toned as Gwyneth’s. It’s no mistake that she works her but off(-literally) for her figure so why not show your best assets in the most tasteful manner.I have always believed that every woman needs good judgement and a great mirror when getting dressed -no matter what her age.

Mother was right: Good taste never goes out of style.
