Mature Models Are Beautiful Because Of Their Age, Not In Spite Of It
Huffington Post - about 1 year
This year, 80-year-old Joan Didion became the face of designer label Céline, with an unabashed ad that says, "80 is vogue. 80 is beautiful." It was the first fashion shoot I'd ever seen that made me feel good about the future, as though I shouldn't have to slouch towards old age. What makes Didion's portrait so alluringly, enduringly cool is its honest portrayal of a woman who's been through it. Though she's quadruple the age of your typical covergirl, her image is comparatively untouched. It is precisely this fact that sells the look; nothing could ever compel me to invest in an expensive statement piece quite like clear, unadulterated proof it will still be chic in my 80s. Didion's Céline campaign drew criticism for exploiting an aging literary genius to sell a certain aesthetic. That argument could itself be considered ageist, for insinuating older women have less control over their careers. Furthermore, so long as the world keeps spinning, it's going to sell women a certain ...

Jack Nicholson: The complete hookup history
guyism - almost 5 years
Last week we took a look at one of the most prolific celebrity womanizers in Leonardo DiCaprio. This week we continue our series with a man who has allegedly hooked up with at least as many famous women as Leo: Jack Nicholson. Of course the difference here is that Jack just turned 75 on Sunday while Leo is half that age. That being said, it’s still a rather impressive list. Jack also gets points for scoring with women many, many years younger than him (noted below). NOTE: In the interest of brevity, we’ll just list all his ladies up to his longest romance: Anjelica Huston. It’s also been reported that Jack has nailed over 2,000 women, but today we’re just going to focus on the famous ones. Previous hookup histories on Guyism. Pre-Anjelica Sandra Knight (1958-1968), Mimi Machu (1967-1971), Susan Anspach (1969-1971), Rita Moreno (1970), Candice Bergen (1971), Michelle Phillips (1971-1972). Anjelica Huston (1973-1989) Jack and Anjelica were an item for 16 years, but as yo ...
