Aging with Grace and Beauty

I just read this column by Lesley M. M. Blume on The Huffington Post and thought I would share it with Fourth Wave readers. It presents six short profiles of celebreties who Blume describes as "natural-looking, beautiful women of a certain age." Though these women should obviously be admired for a great deal more than their physical appearance, I have to agree with Blume; such women provide a refreshing and much-needed departure from the photoshoped, plastic-surgeried images of women that dominate the press. Perhaps our readers have their own role models who redefine beauty-after-50 that could be added to Blume's list. My personal favorite out of this lot: Carmen Dell'Orifice. You can also turn to this NPR report to hear Dell'Orifice's comments on the impact of the recession on the fashion industry.
