Wow, I hope I look like that when I’m her age. They both look so elegant and she looks so fashionable. It’s nice to see that rules can be broken and that’s she dresses for herself. Probably one of my favorite pictures!!
These people are so elegant, a natural elegance and it’s so enjoyable to watch. I really like the lady’s look.
You have a veritable flair for tracking down people with a real presence. This is the clever eye of the photographer that reveals the deeper feelings and truth of a strong personality.
The Milano Fashion/Style A list crowd is fantastically represented on the Sartorialist this week. You weren’t kidding , Scott ,when you mentioned the ‘pearls’ you had in store for us. Wow!
My God, without Beppe and Carla, Art/Fashion/Style as we know it would not exist! They continue to rule fashion/art empires, dynstanies, and are also busy contributing to the future of fashion/style. And, as always, their elegant personal styles are perfection, suit them to a T, and are totally hip!
Also doesn’t hurt that they are both adorable!
These latest photos with old/older tags (wish there were better sounding tags perhaps ‘seasoned”….oh hell let’s not go there after the curve fiasco…They are simply an Older brilliant woman and man, who did much to create the entire fashion and art world we know and enjoy today…and thank god they have no intention of slowing down….or personally ever being anything but stylish!
All of these killer photos of the older crowd are now my official go to reference /look book) for my styling clients, and I suspect many a challenged older soul looking for inspiration!
I think I’ve seen him maybe in your book? Aside their elegance and style what I like most is the expression of joyful peace (I’m brazilian and I don’t know if it really means what I want to say) on their faces. Oh, and I would love to know about her beautiful neckless.
Oh how I love this photo. Thank you so much Scott for posting pictures of “older” people. They have a certain ease about them that most young waif-y models have yet to achieve. Thank you again for this and the Lucinda Chambers one, they totally made my week. I even printed them out to pin on my moodboard at home.
P.S. I love that you are commenting on photos nowadays. While your photos are more than capable of standing on their own, it is nice to “hear your voice” too.
I agree with one of the comments that I want to be them when I grow up..
They have an ease about them that makes the cloths even more reachable to the viewer…
I hope they can let each other in, to the other, and it looks like they have that ability as a couple..
These two amazingly stylish individuals are inspiring and refreshing. Can you please remove the distasteful ‘tags’. I know that you, of all people, wouldn’t intend anything derogatory, but seeing those words associated with Carla and Beppi feels insulting. They are ahead of ‘the pack’ and their sense of style is so individual, especially Carla. She is absolutely magnificent. The ‘Dynamic Duo’.
I don’t get the problem with calling Carla Sozzani an older woman. According to wikipedia, she is 64 years old. This is a bit like complaining about calling a 7 year old a child or a little girl. If we are lucky we will all go through the various stages of life, and I for one hope to be like Carla and be a chic older woman.
Now if the point is that Scott doesn’t have tags for younger women, meaning that they’re the norm for the stylish so he has to tag the elderly because they’re not the norm for stylishness, I get that and think it’s a valid criticism.
Utterly beautiful. I am an “older woman” age 59 and I do NOT see anything distasteful about the tag “older”. Given: we all get “older”. It’s a fact and NOT a bad thing or an insulting thing. It’s more desirable to become older than it is to be dead at age 30. Growing old is part of life and it’s a beautiful thing. And please post more pictures of older men and women.
As a middle aged woman, I pray to the great fashion god in the sky that I get to be an even older woman. My style has matured – it will get even better, and my life is ten times more thrilling. The young have their own advantages, but years and years of learning how to dress – and live – is the blessing of advancing time.
To those young women who want ot be like this when they are old: Good luck – me too… X
They make me smile from ear to ear. What a stylish, happy couple. I agree with PinonHillsDebbie – the tag “older woman” is to be celebrated and embraced. I don’t see any negative connotation attached to it at all. Thanks for making me smile so much with this one!
Oh to be a Sozzani! Dictionaries could use the word Sozzani as a synonym for effortlessly stylish.
I don’t find the tag “older woman” discrimatory, but I do find the comments implying that it is really surprising to find stylish, beautiful older women offensive, particularly when Carla Sozzani is one of the world’s style arbitrators.
This is a photo of friends. Carla’s partner for many years is Kris Ruhs, a brilliant, American artist who also designs most of her jewelry. In fact, he contributes designs to many of Carla’s projects including the decor for 10 Corso Como. His paintings, and installations are wonderful too.
