While I believe that beauty always lies in the eye of the beholder, for the last decade, the images we have been inundated with couldn’t be further removed from the normal woman of today.

These images from the different campaigns at Celine, Dolce and Gabbana and Saint Laurent come as a breath of fresh air. They celebrate beauty as it is – ageless and timeless. Add to the fact that these women are talented beyond belief and finally we are creating imagery that is a portrayal of who a woman should be.
We can finally be done with overly botoxed, line free faces and perfectly photoshopped bodies. Because after all aren’t the so called marks we carry a sign that we have lived?

A friend of mine has a lot of white hair and instead of shying away from it, celebrates it. And my is she a sight to behold. I’ve always wondered as I grow older – which end of the spectrum I would fall on. And I’m still not quite sure how I will handle it. But I will say that I hope to make a sincere effort to do it with grace.

Have a lovely weekend.
