Advanced Style and Couture Collections Fall 2013

Ari Seth Cohen’s book Advanced Style is a collection of photograph’s taken for his blog advancedstyleblog.com. It is a celebration of beautiful, stylish older woman that he has photographed over the years. All these woman have developed their own style signatures and all make bold statements with colour, pattern and accessories. They don’t follow fashion trends per say but embrace looks that suit them and say something about their personalities. One of the great advantages of being older is the freedom you have to express your eccentric side without being judged! All these woman are well groomed, wear over the top colours and huge accessories and pull it off perfectly.

I have always been told that older woman should embrace nude, neutral colours and avoid red lipsticks but this beautiful woman disproves this rule. This strong red looks wonderful on her and I like her use of a darker lip liner.

I always love Couture week and look forward to seeing all the beautiful garments, this Fall 2013 collection is no exception. The clothes were stunning and I was interested in the slight 20′s Oriental influence that was present in some of the collections. I wondered if The Great Gatsby has triggered an interest in vintage eastern design and influence.

    Hi shirl,
    Just some feed back on your blog…..hope you take it as possitive feed back.
    I would like to see more things that can be done to clothing that we already have or that we can wear and not only from fashion shows and style magazines. I can always buy Vogue and see the same picutres. How about showing us how to doll up a skirt or as you did before take a t-shirt and doll it up with sequesnces, Give your readers ideas for different types of pattens etc for fashion and fashion that is realistic and not something that you see on the runway as it gets boring see all the runways fashion shows. Or even different kinds of Material that can be made into tops, skirts or dresses etc.
