Just WOW! Sart, you are awesome for finding these beautiful people of all ages, shapes, and sizes!
June 13, 2007 at 7:58 am
such a chic and confident-looking “old gal”…
June 13, 2007 at 8:07 am
wow!! she’s stunning!!
June 13, 2007 at 8:17 am
sexy is, as sexy does!
June 13, 2007 at 8:50 am
Smashing! This made me smile.
June 13, 2007 at 8:57 am
stunning. and the best accesorie is her smile.
June 13, 2007 at 9:00 am
Gorgeous! I don’t even know what to say….Aren’t those shoes Nine West? She really rocks them!
June 13, 2007 at 9:18 am
It’s a glam Mrs Brady!!! Beautiful ;o)
June 13, 2007 at 9:28 am
I don’t think is the clothes, that dress can fit on any age. I think is her face.
She looks so self-confident!!! I love her smile!!
June 13, 2007 at 9:29 am
Her dress looks like Marc Jacobs. Even its faux, the look is associated so much with young girls like selma blair et al, so seeing it on an older woman is tres cool.
June 13, 2007 at 9:41 am
Work it, Mme.!
Now, this is the kind of lady I expect to see waiting for her driver outside of the Ritz or the W here in Montreal.
Unfortunately, walking past these places yesterday, it seems that only (middle-aged) ruffians go to these hotels now.
Forget bringing sexy back. Bring classy back like this Mme.
June 13, 2007 at 9:43 am
your best shot ever.this is nyc.
I am soooo glad you posted that photo. Yes, she is stunning. It just goes to show that wearing clothes with confidence is the secret to beauty.
June 13, 2007 at 9:45 am
Quite possibly my favorite post EVER.
I want to look like her when I’m that age!
I love the fact that the older you are, the more you can get away with wearing large pieces of jewelery.
They don’t call them the Golden Years for nothin’, right?
June 13, 2007 at 9:49 am
Fantastic!!! she’s inspirational and aspirational too!!!!
June 13, 2007 at 9:50 am
She makes me look forward to getting older. Why on earth would you be scared of aging when you can look this fabulous and full of joie de vivre?!
June 13, 2007 at 9:54 am
I LIIIIIIIKE HER!!!!!
June 13, 2007 at 9:59 am
I am 28 and I would kill to look this good. Can I adopt this woman as my new grandmother?
Cut of cloth
My GodShe looks Fantastic!Great to see a grown up woman with such a young style it really works..Makes one wonder what she was like in her youth…How fabulous it would be to take a peep in her wardrobe.I would love to draw her in different guisesat different times of life, light, and moodshe would be a perfect Muse…In fact I would love to design a rangejust for this Woman!
June 13, 2007 at 10:03 am
I love her confidence and how she’s able to wear trends (the skirt, the shoes) without looking “trendy.”
June 13, 2007 at 10:08 am
Wow! What a breath of fresh air. I adore her spirit. That necklace looks, like someone already said, smashing!
And here I thought you had to be British to age well!
June 13, 2007 at 10:23 am
wow, she’s just way to fabulous!
June 13, 2007 at 10:29 am
She looks fantastic, so chic!
June 13, 2007 at 10:32 am
I wish my grandmother had this sense of style.
June 13, 2007 at 10:49 am
Totally inspired and inspirational!!! I’m a 45 yo with a new baby and it is a great feeling to look forward to the vision of, say, meeting my 25 year old son for lunch in midtown when I am 65 and looking as smashing as this woman!
June 13, 2007 at 11:19 am
Stunning! And I love the way her hair matches the sparkly rhinestones she’s wearing.
of crime & lust
June 13, 2007 at 11:35 am
They are Nine West shoes, half off as of last week. I couldnt decide if i liked them, but now I do!
June 13, 2007 at 11:36 am
As a 30 year old that just stumbled upon this site, I must make two comments.
1. I love it.
2. This picture is simply brilliant. As is the woman captured in it. I would hope my wife will capture this essence of “feminine” when she is this womans age.
June 13, 2007 at 11:38 am
she looks fabulous. (I hate the shoes, but they’re very stylish.) I can only hope that works when I’m her age…
June 13, 2007 at 11:42 am
She is truly fabulous and I don’t use that word too often. I hope I have enough style and energy to look that good when I become a “woman of a certain age”.
June 13, 2007 at 11:43 am
This lady is exceptional! Let her lead the way to rid style-challenged older women out of their sea of elastic waist polyester pants, St. John suits and “suntan” hose. She looks absolutely great and happy.
June 13, 2007 at 11:48 am
I wish she was my grandmother!!

June 13, 2007 at 12:03 pm
I love everything about her outfit. She looks so chic and stylish.
June 13, 2007 at 12:04 pm
i want to age that way! she’s beautiful, with such fresh elegance!
June 13, 2007 at 12:05 pm
A world of YES! I would love to see her the rest of her wardrobe!
June 13, 2007 at 12:41 pm
Now that is style. Took my breath away. I’m 26, a mother of two… I feel “old” for my age. I LOVE stylish, sexy older women like this, for making me feel like the “cool” part of my life doesn’t have to be over already. I adore your blog. I never thought I’d be interested in fashion, but since teaching myself to knit a few years ago I have come to see fashion as a craft, a kind of soul-filling thing, not just magazine fluff. Um, not that there’s anything wrong with magazines.
June 13, 2007 at 12:42 pm
June 13, 2007 at 1:09 pm
Fantastic! I should be so lucky to be as chic now and when I’m her age
June 13, 2007 at 1:45 pm
My favorite post — love her confidence and style!
June 13, 2007 at 2:27 pm
I can’t think about anything more inspiring than an elegant grown-up woman.
June 13, 2007 at 2:28 pm
Her white jacket is so cute and cunning…I can barely handle it! I love the fact that this outfit would look ridiculous on me and many other younger women, even though it is totally youthful. Her chic, and hers alone, is making it work!
June 13, 2007 at 2:33 pm
I love her! I bet she throws perfect martini parties.
June 13, 2007 at 2:34 pm
My first comment ever — I just can’t resist. She is wonderful! What style, what swing-in-the-step, what a smile! Thanks for all of your photographs and for sharing your eye with us.
June 13, 2007 at 2:39 pm
Fly ass grandma!
June 13, 2007 at 2:50 pm
June 13, 2007 at 3:16 pm
She’s absolutely lovely! A true inspiration, and proof that you don’t have to look dowdy or stuffy once you reach a certain age.
And, she’s got a great smile.
June 13, 2007 at 3:25 pm
i wish i was related to her
June 13, 2007 at 3:27 pm
she’s really rockin’ that outfit. great sense of style, mixing different elements to make an elegant and unique statement. she’s really nailed an edgy look that doesn’t look inappropriate for her age. just awesome!!!!
June 13, 2007 at 3:30 pm
Oh, man. Awesome look on such a lovely lady. We can only wish to look this good at her age.
June 13, 2007 at 3:36 pm
I want that necklace!
June 13, 2007 at 3:41 pm
Lovely! For those of us who ARE of “a certain age” it’s so nice to see such terrific examples of style.
And thanks, Sart, for picking her!
June 13, 2007 at 3:51 pm
Atitude is everything!!!She looks confident and veeeeery sexy.
June 13, 2007 at 3:56 pm
Wow wow wow. I got goosebumps looking at the picture. Ladies, look and learn. Age is just an illusion. Older means more graceful and very refined. Made my day, that photo.
June 13, 2007 at 4:03 pm
June 13, 2007 at 4:04 pm
Now this old lady would be quite ready to go to a teaparty with girlfriends her age to some fancy tearoom.
June 13, 2007 at 4:16 pm
Run free Wolf!
Just fantastic. This lady does what so many women younger than herself can’t manage: individually stylish, classy yet relevant and she doesn’t in any way look as if she’s trying to skew young.
So many ladies of a certain age can’t reconcile their style with their ages or the age they live in. They either dress like their 28, like they’re 88, or like a grotesque caricature of Coco Chanel.
Not this lady, what a gem.
June 13, 2007 at 4:22 pm
Yes! This woman puts the pastel-track-suit-and white sneaker-wearing hoards of older ladies at the mall to shame! And she looks chic and age-appropriate without being frumpy. Fantastic.
June 13, 2007 at 4:31 pm
um wow. what a hot fox. can you like take a picture of her everyday? I want to see her in all different ensembles.
June 13, 2007 at 4:39 pm
Yes, she looks great.Her age is not important.One seldom sees a woman of any age looking this lovely and put together.
June 13, 2007 at 4:40 pm
Just started reading your blog and I love it…I just have to say this woman looks fantastic and I love her necklace.
June 13, 2007 at 4:50 pm
I just hope I look this good and so self confident at her age.Beautiful!
June 13, 2007 at 4:59 pm
REFRESHING! This lady has got it going on! and with heels on! i would like to meet her now…and twenty years ago!
June 13, 2007 at 5:07 pm
My new favorite Sart girl. She’s total inspiration for the me of the future. Thanks, Sart. I heart u!
June 13, 2007 at 5:23 pm
Oh wow! I can only describe this woman in one word; Fabulous!
June 13, 2007 at 5:36 pm
She looks just like my own grandma! Same confident style and fantastic hair.
June 13, 2007 at 6:13 pm
June 13, 2007 at 6:19 pm
As a gal on the cusp of being an “older gal”, I am thrilled to see this woman. Confident, happy, and gorgeous. A great reminder that if you believe in it you can sell it!!!!!
June 13, 2007 at 7:29 pm
what a stylish lady! i just wish a little bit that she were wearing an elegant pair of black pumps instead
June 13, 2007 at 7:44 pm
love love love this! It makes me so happy to think about looking that great when I’m her age :)
June 13, 2007 at 8:47 pm
perfect. i love her jacket. just goes to show that style is attitude!!
June 13, 2007 at 8:59 pm
wow this is inspirational.
We are not going to refer to her as ‘a woman of a certain age’ are we?
Thats only for women who are not proud of their age – and this lady does not fit that category.
June 13, 2007 at 10:01 pm
I love seeing women of a certain age looking this good. Just yesterday I was reading the most recent Australian Vogue when I came across a lovely article about a spectacularly stilish 98 YEAR OLD woman. Just goes to show style is ageless, you don’t have to be 25, slim and pretty to look chic!
June 13, 2007 at 10:43 pm
oh my god, she is incredible!
June 13, 2007 at 11:06 pm

June 13, 2007 at 11:50 pm
My goodness, don’t you just love her?? I love glamorous women, especially those who have already reached a certain age and they look FANTABULOUS without trying hard to look young..
June 14, 2007 at 12:17 am
I LOVE the comments about this picture…fabulous! Now, if the magazines, the television, the advertisements would listen…the women of America could breathe.
June 14, 2007 at 2:12 am
And I want to add…
She’s a quintessential New York lady. Now, that is class.
June 14, 2007 at 2:21 am
Faabbbbullosu..she looks abs stunnin
June 14, 2007 at 3:56 am
a million dollar girl!
June 14, 2007 at 4:59 am
Quintessential New York.
June 14, 2007 at 6:22 am
Amazing lady! Chic and stylish in her own personal way, not a fashionista! More please!
June 14, 2007 at 6:45 am
such a refined and beautiful figure
June 14, 2007 at 7:27 am
I wish I was this body, this style and this happiness when I am older.
June 14, 2007 at 7:57 am
Eine wunderbare, fröhliche und fabelhaft gekleidete Lady, eine Altersangabe ist da obsolet. Vielen Dank Thank you

June 14, 2007 at 7:59 am
I wish I could be like her when I am at her age :)
June 14, 2007 at 9:19 am
if i look and dress like her when i reach her age i will die happy.
June 14, 2007 at 9:36 am
Wow….I want to be like her when I am her age :-)
So cool lady!
June 14, 2007 at 10:23 am
Goodness, what an amazing looking woman with such fashion sense!
Excellent photo…as always…
June 14, 2007 at 10:24 am
Wow! Totally fabulous. Sart, please photograph her again.
June 14, 2007 at 10:44 am
I want to look that happy and beautiful and cheerful and stylish when I’m older.
June 14, 2007 at 12:46 pm
I have been waiting for you to post a pic like this! Great choice, love her attitude.
June 14, 2007 at 1:26 pm
Betty White is HOT!
June 14, 2007 at 1:34 pm
Those are Nine West shoes. I almost bought them a few weeks ago
June 14, 2007 at 3:12 pm
June 14, 2007 at 4:16 pm
She looks like the old lady in studio 54!
June 14, 2007 at 4:50 pm
I want to be like her when I grow up.
P.S. – fabulous blog!
June 14, 2007 at 5:10 pm
I would imagine this lady still turns heads. WOW if only my mother were so stylish, let alone my grandmother.
June 14, 2007 at 5:44 pm
i just love her!
June 14, 2007 at 6:08 pm
this is why i love this website- someone i can look up to rather than the kids in fancy dress that masquerades as style on other street style blogs!
June 14, 2007 at 7:34 pm
How cool is she?! I hope I’m like that when I get older…
June 14, 2007 at 8:31 pm
now that’s one classy broad.
June 14, 2007 at 11:36 pm
Can she come up to my city and give us all a lesson on class and style?
June 15, 2007 at 1:20 am
Her style and joie de vivre may be inspiring but what’s most impressive is that this lady is able to coordinate an ensemble with a very modern approach… the designer duds mixed with mall shoes. Who else can achieve that think- outside- the- box approach in their 60′s?
June 15, 2007 at 1:27 am
Any idea why so many girls become become monotonously dressed women…mothers, grandmothers?
This classic photo defies all above mentioned concepts.
Thanks Sart for introducing us to this classic beauty… ageless and stylish forever.
June 15, 2007 at 4:43 am
HATE the belt, but She is LOVE.
June 15, 2007 at 7:36 am
Perfect in every way. Wat it means to have style.
June 16, 2007 at 7:54 am
Sophistication par excellence!
This Lady has a natural grace which she enhances with her outfit.
She reminds me of the Italian ladies, – so great at dressing their age. Great hair, big chunky necklaces and earrings, bright red lipstick, heels and a splash of some silver/gold/rhinestone.
Her smile is wonderful too.I would love to make friends with her.
I wish to be this cool and chic, when I get older. Fabulous picture!
June 16, 2007 at 1:04 pm
“vivacious” comes to mind — and that’s no faint praise
June 17, 2007 at 6:07 am
She’s just DRIPPING with panache.
June 17, 2007 at 7:18 am
I’ve noticed that most of the posts focus on this woman’s age, as in “she looks great for her age.” She looks great. period. I wish I looked this good now, and I’m several generations below her. (Well, at least one and a half)
June 17, 2007 at 8:21 am
I love her, she is an ispiration. Give us more of her please!
June 17, 2007 at 9:07 am
shes wearing a shoe from nine west called tobago.a best seller here in singapore.
June 17, 2007 at 1:07 pm
wow if I can be half as cool as her at any age, that would be a blessing!
June 17, 2007 at 4:08 pm
I want to go shopping with her! She’s so adorable!
I hope to be rockin’ it when I’m that age!
June 18, 2007 at 11:43 am
June 18, 2007 at 11:54 am
Fantasic – She is super chic, with a great air of personality. She knows clothing well, and can walk into any upscale shop, trendy or classic and knows just what to pull to mix a fresh style like this – :)
positively the same dame
June 18, 2007 at 2:36 pm
this blog is always fun, but once it a while you really come up with something truly great and you’ve certainly done it here. i can’t get enough of this picture, this woman — surely this is what it — this style, this fashion thing — is all about? is there anyone alive who would not want to know her? or you, for that matter? how fortunate for us that the gods conspired to have all of the necessary elements converge on the corner of 57th and 5th.
June 19, 2007 at 4:10 am
this is what i called by aging gracefully…..^_^ salute!
June 19, 2007 at 7:01 am
superb, just lovely
June 20, 2007 at 12:01 pm
this is the epitome of how senior citizens can still look young, fresh, confident & sexy.
June 20, 2007 at 5:31 pm
perfectly park avenue! are those nine west lucite shoes she’s wearing? those were the ones featured in vogue!
June 25, 2007 at 9:06 pm
THAT is style.
As Diana Vreeland said, ” You’re born with it….you don’t acquire it.”
July 12, 2007 at 2:58 pm
GORGEOUS!!! She IS “l’allure”.And I want also her smile and to look like her when I’m that age !She is the best!
July 14, 2007 at 10:23 pm
I swear I saw her in central park, it might have been someone else though with a similar style :]

I ADORE the necklace!!!!
