You can take no credit for beauty at sixteen. But if you are beautiful at sixty, it will be your soul’s own doing. ~ Marie Stopes
They say 30 is the new 20, 40 is the new 30, etc. Certainly women are retaining a vitality for much longer and women RL Harper’s own age are drop dead (even moreso than younger women, I have been told). Truth is, beauty doesn’t know an age. An older woman can pull off a sophisticated look that a younger girl could never carry off. Take this top from sable99 Magic’s dress paired with a high-waisted skirt from Dakota Buck. Black and white, echoed in the black bag from Renee Harvy and toe-cap pumps from Onyx LeShelle and simple pearls from Tiffy Vella knotted at the neck, and you have the sort of elegance that only comes from years of experience.
The look is pulled together with a short cut from chiaki Xue and this gorgeous hand-drawn skin from Sissy Pessoa. Sissy is taking a risk here, putting out a women’s skin for a more mature look—isn’t youth what we all seek? Well if you want to be taken seriously or want to represent the “real you,” maybe not. Notice how well Sissy adds wrinkles to the skin, the slightly drooping eyes, the lines from a lot of smiling (and a little worrying too) working their way from the eyes, across the bridge of the nose, and around the mouth. Sissy shows us that, indeed, beauty can be timeless.
I think your whole life shows in your face and you should be proud of that. ~ Lauren Bacall
