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.

A Note to Beautiful Sophia…

Dear Sophia Loren,

You are truly one of the most beautiful women ever gracing the planet. Your talent and beauty are legendary in the entertainment world and around the globe (so far I think this sounds pretty respectful-right?? BUT.. (and here is where it is going to go South)…  It has come to my attention as of late that perhaps it is time to reconsider your stylist. After a certain age it ‘s advisable to stop exposing more than 80% of your voluptuous bosom when on National TV and consider keeping anything with ruffles for your grandchildren. If you would like to see a good example of a beautiful actress over 50 wearing clothes that are truly flattering- take a look at your peer Helen Mirren. Now I know you think she is a Brit, and not one to really “show off the goods” –but consider for a moment that she too- has seen her last days of breast feeding and presents herself at events in something a bit more …(how shall I say this)… age appropriate.  Your not 20 anymore Sophia-but you are a gorgeous 70 year old women who still can look better than the best of them. 

****Just give it a little thought!!! You almost poked my eye out at the SAG awards….

 Ciao!
