ageless: wonderful! :)

I love these potraits, gorgeous
September 25, 2013 at 8:15 pm
She has amazing style, Italian women just look better with age!
September 25, 2013 at 8:20 pm
Gorgeous. I dont know who she is but she appears smart, stylish and confident. I love her good skin, tasteful makeup, unapologetic wrinkles, and Mona Lisa smile. THIS gives me something to aspire to as I get older. Thank you for singling her out in the crowd.

One of the things I admire about you is that you see the beauty in older people as well as the young. I think there is true beauty and style at any age.
September 25, 2013 at 8:35 pm
What a beauty! She feels true to herself which inspires and increases her attractiveness. I love her makeup. I do find myself chafing at your tag “mature women”. It shouldn’t but does conjure dowdy. At 59 yrs old and finding my look for this age and for something to grow into, the last thing I want is to look dowdy. But lovely photograph is appreciated.

Hey Jules, I read ‘mature woman’ and thought: interesting, refined, sorted, free… I like it… No, I love it.
September 28, 2013 at 7:45 pm
Helping me redefine mature. I like it.
September 25, 2013 at 8:59 pm
Thanks for including a woman over 50 Scott! Love the blue coat/white blouse combination. Nice frames. Her confidence and poise are what make it a good portrait. ‘Comfortable in your own skin’ is always fashionable.
September 25, 2013 at 9:03 pm
Great character in her beautiful face…the dark frames are perfect. At last, you’ve put up a picture of an older woman who embraces her age with dignity and style! Che bella donna!
September 25, 2013 at 9:25 pm
As a 70-year old, I love to see these chic older women who have not plastic-surgeried to death!
September 25, 2013 at 9:35 pm
She looks incredible!
September 25, 2013 at 9:37 pm
She looks great and I love her coat! You can’t go wrong with good tweed!
September 25, 2013 at 9:45 pm
September 25, 2013 at 9:51 pm
Wow, what a stunner. Love the blue frame on the glasses and the pale blue jacket with the white shirt. Such character and intelligence in her eyes.
September 25, 2013 at 10:02 pm
Someone please tell me where she got those glasses…..
September 25, 2013 at 10:40 pm
she has a gorgeous face

I would love to hear her stories. I just know they would be interesting
September 25, 2013 at 10:56 pm
T H A N K Y O U ! for the lovely portrait of someone older than 25…
September 25, 2013 at 11:09 pm
simple , yet gorgeous.
September 25, 2013 at 11:10 pm
Great shot! Love the color of her coat.

Renata, right? As gorgeous as always. My personal style icon.
September 25, 2013 at 11:35 pm
Beautiful women. Beautiful photography. Simply stunning. Great capture Scott.
September 26, 2013 at 12:11 am
Perfection defined! I would love to pick her brain!

September 26, 2013 at 2:28 am
Beautiful portrait, love the round sunglasses!
September 26, 2013 at 2:31 am
Wrinkles are the charm of this woman.Really elegant!
Who is Mocca?

September 26, 2013 at 2:41 am
Brilliant! I especially love her eyeglasses.
September 26, 2013 at 3:12 am
Yes, Renata, I think so. I saved the picture from Wednesday, January 16, 2013 on this site. Slightly shorter hair and new glasses. So beautiful and she’s updating her look more often than I do!
September 26, 2013 at 1:00 pm
Yes! I’ve saved that photo as well. Something to aspire to!
September 27, 2013 at 9:32 am
I agree – getting older doesn’t look too bad if you can do it like that :)
September 27, 2013 at 1:43 pm
My wife saved that photo, as well, for inspiration as she grows older.
September 26, 2013 at 3:41 am
the prettiest face i ve seen for a long time
September 26, 2013 at 4:06 am
September 26, 2013 at 4:38 am

September 26, 2013 at 5:25 am
Renata Molho- elegant and inspiring as always!
September 26, 2013 at 5:33 am
Beautiful attitude and lovely clean and strong style! Great portrait!

Simple and soooo beautiful
September 26, 2013 at 7:09 am
If only I could look so graceful once I’m old! Lovely
September 26, 2013 at 8:46 am
Now that is what we call ageing beautifully. So graceful.
September 26, 2013 at 8:53 am
Bellisima! I’m a great fan of Advanced Style because beautiful older “real” women are shown…..but if you keep showing gorgeous women like this one, maybe I’ll appreciate your blog even more.
September 26, 2013 at 9:26 am
People hope to get old like this!
September 26, 2013 at 10:05 am
Thank you for showing beauty at every age. Non c’è nessuno più bella!
September 26, 2013 at 10:09 am
Finally!!!! A photo with someone real with character. While I appreciate a wild range of styles and shots, the street, hyper-self conscious photos are getting somewhat passe. Thank you for showing sublime style – much appreciated! All best!
September 26, 2013 at 10:25 am
Glamour and charm are ageless!!!
September 26, 2013 at 12:13 pm
I think the pale blue of the coat looks attractive on her. Looking for a good coat like this. Somewhat amused by the comments of the people here, upon staring at a face with wrinkles. Falling all over themselves to prove that they, too, like old age. As a woman approaching 60, which I do not think is thaaat advanced an age, I’m dreading this kind of thing, people saying you look great, for your age. She looks great, the same way teenagers at their age can look great.
September 26, 2013 at 5:15 pm
Now, that. is. class.
September 26, 2013 at 6:28 pm
Renata is my style mentor. Thanks for this image.
September 26, 2013 at 11:04 pm
Old age, an ordeal yet to come…But the lady in the picture looks nice, she looks like a teacher, prim and proper
September 29, 2013 at 1:00 am
Not sure why you would say “old age, an ordeal yet to come,” as though it’s some sort of disease, “but the lady looks nice,” as though that could hardly be possible. Age is life — not an affliction. The young do not have a monopoly on living.
September 27, 2013 at 6:11 am
September 28, 2013 at 7:22 pm
Who is Renata? We are curious …
September 27, 2013 at 6:28 am
Renata, thank you so much Scott for the picture.
September 27, 2013 at 11:12 am
Gorgeous and smart. She looks like Giovanna’s mother (or, looks like what Giovanna might look like when she gets to be that age).
September 27, 2013 at 12:03 pm
Compliments for seeing beauty and elegance! I am happy to see the woman can inspire so many. Thrilled about the comments and enthusiasm the photo makes.
September 28, 2013 at 3:40 am
She’s beautiful and so class !
September 28, 2013 at 9:28 am
This is a majestic shot. Wonderful style.
September 28, 2013 at 10:16 am
It was a previous shot of this gorgeous woman that inspired me to buy both of your books. Thank you
September 29, 2013 at 12:05 am
So good to see an older woman on the blog, it’s the one thing my friends and I don’t like much about the blog – heaps of stylish older men shown, hardly any older women!
September 30, 2013 at 12:47 pm
October 5, 2013 at 5:30 pm
Ah, Renata… one of my favorites, discovered through this blog. Thank you for that!
October 15, 2013 at 10:49 pm
so chic, so elegant!
October 21, 2013 at 8:05 pm
I’m a month late to this post, but what the hell, I had to comment because the tantalising ‘Renata’ (who is she? does she have another name?) is so beautiful.
And I’d like to thank you for your occasional shots of ‘older’ people and to ask you for more.
I’m with anonymous above who hated the idea of being told they looked good ‘for their age’. That dreadful patronising qualifier which neutralises the compliment that precedes it. I love those comments here about Renata which simply note that she’s a beautiful woman, making no mention of her age. Beauty is beauty, and style is style and she has both. Full stop.

Renata Mahlo is a great personality: http://www.vice.com/read/drinking-milan-v15n4

Gracious photo, but isn’t it a bit to warm with that coat?
