This is how to grow old in style

Ari Seth Cohen, photographer and self-proclaimed ’old lady expert’, appreciates ’advanced’ beauty.

He finds his models — elegant older ladies — on the streets of New York. The youngest of them is 59 and the oldest is 102 years old. They know that true beauty is timeless, and taste and style only get more sophisticated over the years.

These women don’t hide their age, don’t dye their gray hair or waste money on plastic surgery. They go through life with their heads held high, and it’s hard to look away.
