Everyone talks about young models, teens monopolizing social media, but there’s another category that could really hold surprises when it comes to style: women over 60. Agée ladies can be much cooler and daring than their younger “peers”. Even the brands noticed it, especially beauty houses. Just look at the latest advertising campaigns that feature mature women as Jessica Lange, Charlotte Rampling, Susan Sarandon or the very-Italian Sophia Loren. Or even the world of social and web, starting from Advanced Style, born to pay tribute to ‘older’ models, a sort of The Sartorialist that shows how a woman over 60 can be elegant and boast a distinctive and recognizable style. Some examples? Besides the super famous style icon Iris Apfel (93 years old!) and Miley Cirus’s funny ‘muse’ Baddie Winkle (88), in our gallery you’ll find the agée women that most stand out for their style, confidence and age pride. In other words, our grandma could easily be cooler than us. Maybe we should check out her closet and ask her for style advice.
