Grand Dames....

Every day I read about 80+/- blogs to keep up with what is going on in the world and today I was thrilled to hear of a movie premiering this summer from the blog
In the film Ari Cohen celebrates aging women and their enduring style and zest for living.  It features such legends as the oldest living Ziegfeld Follies Star Doris Eaton

Iris Apfel who is one of my favorites.....
with her iconic glasses of course

And many others....
Somehow reading through the advice of these women made my turning 40 last month seem insignificant.  Here is a preview of the film....I think you will enjoy it!
Ari has a book coming out in 2012 as well and of course there are many stories and lots of other great photos and advice on his blog as well. 

I love that he celebrates these women and shares their point of view as well as their advice to younger women.  My favorite clip is this one in a cab with 91 year old ELONA.....

Here's to all of you wonderful, colorful, creative, imperfect and wise women and of course to Ari for sharing them with the world.
