A quote from Isabella Rossellini, 60 had me nodding my head in agreement. “My social status has diminished ...as you grow older, you don’t count anymore.”
It's true. Sometimes I feel like I am just the Mum tagging along with my daughters, while they live their lives and I just support that life.
Ridiculous really because my girls are still very young, and I am guessing that the 'support act' feeling will only increase with time.
Although I was never a super-model (do dreams count?) I think these ladies who are 'past their prime' probably have a the best sense of what it is like to be overlooked for a younger model.
Isabella Rossellini is still one classy looking lady, and in my books that counts for so much more than a dewy complexion and flat abs.
Paulina Porizkova is still DIVINE!
And, Carmen Dell'Orefice is still my favourite!
PS. I think we now know why Kristen Stewart was looking so unwashed and haggard in the photo below.
