Fashion for life

- +

If you think fashion is just for the young, this book will change your perception. Advanced Style challenges stereotypical views on age and ageing by featuring elegant, glamourous and even quirky women in their senior years. 

The author, Ari Seth Cohen, calls this book "the celebration of life". The final chapter of the book is an interview by the seductive Dita Von Teese with Ilona Royce Smithkin, whom the reader will very likely recognise as the one with the orange false eyelashes.

The book features inspiring women who dress to reflect who they are, not what their age says they should be. Some women are over a century old, but their styles are eye-catching and truly amazing  -  something they've learned from experience. Alongside the photos are quotes from the women which can be applied to any woman of any age.
