I swear Renata gets more beautiful and stylish every time I see her! I hope we can see the rest of her outfit Scott! Congratulations on all of your recent success, I especially liked your car commercial!
What a beautiful woman! I love her lipstick/sweater/scarf color pairing. It’s refreshing to see such a lovely pic of an older woman too. Beauty is so often in the less than obvious places. Thanks for posting!
WE LOVE ! Beautiful, confident, stylish – who wouldn’t want to sit down to lunch with this person!! So far above the botoxed zombies that try to represent what it means to age “gracefully” in America these days.
It’s true she has no Botox, but I just wish she had more hair. Are those of you who are opposed to Botox, also opposed to more hair? What if this woman were to add in a few subtle hair extensions? She would instantly look younger. What’s more, I think she could color her hair. I’m not sure if this woman is working or looking for a job, but sprucing up her hair (and that alone) would help her in the workforce. Botox is a nice enhancement but not as essential as great hair, IMO.
I read your comment several times and have concluded that you are not joking. I am not particularly opposed to botox, or to “more hair”. I am, however, opposed to both when they are not needed. This woman has a full head of thick hair. She is obviously very comfortable with who she is, and consequently reeks of style, class, dignity and grace. I doubt that she is looking for a job, as she is one of the world’s most respected Fashion Journalists. (Georgio Armani allowed her to be the first to write his biography).
I don’t think she needs botox, nor extensions. Class and allure (Audrey Hepburn, Lauren Bacall…those kind of women) comes like this and do not need (should not have) artifice. A good lipstick, good base, little eye shadow , no jewelry or very light, and that’s it.
Forget the extensions. This woman surely do not want to look like ‘the real housewives of Beverly Hills (just walked in a store in front of a super-size TV (same thing, no need but other discussion) with these ugly fake rich full of long hair and heavy botox-makeup women. What a disaster.
This is clearly someone who is not looking for the erasure of expression. Botox is for people who do not want laugh lines or evidence that they have lived in the natural world. This lady radiates a warm intelligence, so you have to imagine that she could have had dye, extensions, botox, and whatever, but is telling you with the bold glasses that she knows best for herself.
She looks just fabulous and this is exactly how to grow old gracefully. How wonderfully refreshing to see a face that isn’t stuffed full of botox and fillers. Paradoxically, they ALWAYS make you look so much older!
Gorgeous woman, gorgeous portrait, pretty foam green scarf! One of my many favorites on here. Although truth be told, I have so many favorites on here that its not saying that much any more… Very uplifting to see.
I love it.
And again “natural” wins and rules.
Love the textures, the colours she shoes that go so well with her skin and hair. A woman with good taste.
As already previously mentionned :
La mode s’achĂ¨te – le style se possĂ¨de
This is a spectacular picture. First of all the composition – I love the way her colors are echoed by the blurred background – the tree branches behind her hair, the peach colored houses behind her face, the blues reaching just up to her shoulders. The subject looks as though she just coalesced into existence on the spot.
The clothes are very cool, well-worn, shades of green in a combination you don’t normally see. Each could have been a Pantone color of the year in it’s own decade. Thrown together, they’re like the lush greens of a garden. The sunglasses make it all modern.
The woman herself looks incredibly beautiful and interesting and radiant. All the comments about how great she looks – for her age – are a little depressing. Do pictures of elegant men of the same age elicit the same response? But I have to admit that I had a little bit the same thought myself. Why? I guess, part of what makes the image so compelling is that it presents a classy alternative to faking youth indefinitely, as so many women feel they must try to do. Definitely a thing to remember.
