Age: a state of mind
Let’s hear it for Sonic Youth bass player/artist/producer Kim Gordon, who according to Opening Ceremony’s Facebook page was ‘killing it’ at Chloe Sevigny’s New York Fashion Week presentation, yesterday. Kim rocks and is 60 this April.

Perhaps that sign should say ‘The agony of hot pants’. One of the main aims of That’s Not My Age is to feature inspirational people over the age of 40 and beyond. To look forward not back. Young hipsters get enough attention, anyway. So. It’s been a good week for older women. Did you see Ari Seth Cohen’s Advanced Style ladies in the latest ad campaign for Karen Walker sunglasses? Fantastic. My favourite images are of 64-year-old stylist and Pinterest pin-up, Linda Rodin.
And the other day, the New York Times featured Vicki Topaz’s beautiful photographs of grey-haired women, currently on display at the Buck Institute, Marin County. And on her blog Silver: a State of Mind. Read all about the project here.
Meet 63-year-old artist and writer Grace Lehman, ‘ I never dyed my gray hair. I never associated it with age. I always associated it with the art of being.’
Old is the new young, people.
