I am excited to report that our dear friend Tziporah Salamon just signed with Europe's leading modeling agency, Models 1. Tziporah happened to be in London during my panel discussion at The Royal Academy of Arts where she delivered the wonderful news. This has been a dream of Tziporah's for many years, and I can't wait to see what lies ahead for her. Check out Tziporah's portfolio on the Models 1 website HERE.

|Countess Marianne Bernadotte of Wisborg in an original coat by Pierre Balmain|
While in Stockholm, I had the honor of meeting and presenting Countess Marianne Bernadotte of Wisborg with an award, celebrating a lifetime of style, from M-Magasin. After the award ceremony Countess Marianne asked if Joyce and I would like to join her for a coffee at her home in Stockholm. Joyce and I were thrilled to receive this wonderful invitation and we joined Countess Marianne at her home the next day.
The Countess told me that she has loved fashion ever since she was a child. She explained that style is something that she feels one is born with and that, " A thing of beauty is a joy forever."(Keats) Now 88 years-old, she has acquired an incredible collection of couture items from friends like Pierre Balmain. Countess Marianne is in the process of lending some pieces from her collection, spanning over 50 years of couture, to a local museum, to be exhibited later this year. Joyce and will always remember our time in Stockholm and we can't wait to return to catch Countess Marianne's upcoming show.

I met Ingmari Lamy in Stockholm and asked her to share a few words about her experience as model working in her 60s below.
When I came into modeling at the age of 19 and shortly after that did my first cover for Harpers Bazaar, I was a young woman loving nature and the world of fashion was art to me. Using make-up was great during the photo-shoot itself, the playfulness and the transforming possibilities. I loved it! Even so, I always took my make up off after work and was " a natural". That`s the way it was for me. Being in the world of fashion today, still modeling at the age of 65, I have kept these habits of staying natural. For my skin I use organic olive oil, that`s the way I like it. I want to inspire women, young and old, to know their true inner beauty and strength. I want them to know that their beauty is always there every moment. Always present. And then we can play with make-up and clothes! I love the way your women are colorful and expressing a true personality. Maybe when I get older I will be wearing make-up as well.

Forest Trace senior living community in Lauderhill, Florida. This was my first visit to a retirement community, and I wasn't sure what to expect when I arrived. After spending a few days with the residents, I discovered that it was an inspiring and vibrant community of active and vital seniors. Beverly, one of Forest Trace's best dressed residents, was born in New York and has been living in the community for over two years. I asked her what her style inspiration was, and she replied, "I love fashion. I have always loved fashion. You get up in the morning and you look in the mirror and you can't ignore what you see. Why not make the best out of what you've got and try to always look your best?"

Karen Walker eye wear, so I was thrilled when she approached me to shoot her latest campaign with some of the Advanced Style ladies. I cast some of my favorite women and shot all the photos in their own homes. I am proud to present The Karen Walker Spring 2013 Forever Campaign starring Ilona Royce Smithkin, Joyce Carpati, Linda Rodin and Lynn Dell.

"Flamenco dance is a powerful, passionate, improvisational art form that allows me to explore my individuality, sharpen my creativity and keep in shape. I started dancing when I was 40 and never stopped. Flamenco dance is great for balance, coordination, bone density, muscle toning and cardio – things we need to be concerned with as aging women. Plus the costumes are incredibly fun!
While I may be a bit “young” at 62, I consider myself an “Advanced Style Apprentice”, learning from those older than me and inspiring those my age and younger. And with mentors such as the Advanced Style Women and heroes such as you, I am more excited about the next 40 years than I was when I was younger! "
