For the last 20 years, Ruth 101-years old and Al 89, have been traveling the world together and dancing the nights away. They first met on a cruise, when Al noticed how elegant Ruth was dressed and asked her to dance. To celebrate her 100th birthday, Ruth and Al cruised to the Caribbean. Al told me, “Ruth always looks so gorgeous and she is such a fun person to be with. I love getting all dressed up and riding the bus with her. People always tell us how great we look together.”
Designer Karen Walker took a cue from the Advanced Style blog and collaborated with Ari Seth Cohen for her latest 2013 eyewear collection featuring models afed 65 to 92. Werq!
I adore Seth Ari Cohen’s Advanced Style blog. I ran into Jacquie Tajah Murdock in Harlem a few months ago and recognized her from the blog. She was very elegant and graceful, exactly how I would picture a former dancer to be. Jacquie carried the Advance Style book with her and showed me her photos. It was such a classic New York moment and the smile on her face was priceless.

Today’s Advanced Style post features a vintage Chanel suit. Let’s just take a moment to really let this sink in.
Advanced Style is in Glasgow, Scotland for the Scottish Fashion Awards!
I love the fashion in Glasgow and it’s where I discovered Karen Millen seven years ago before she brought her designs to the US. I highly recommend visiting the city at least once in a lifetime.
And Scottish men? Don’t get me started…
Advance Style On The Big Screen
I’m so excited about this news as this is my favorite fashion blog!
Advanced Style, by Ari Seth Cohen, has received funding through Kickstarter to pursue a documentary on the well-dressed older ladies of New York City. I am hoping that the documentary will also include cities in Europe so I can see more of Zandra Rhodes (pictured above) and many more well-curated, mature women.
How about a screening party for all the fashion Tumblrs?
There’s only one blog that I subscribe to and read on a daily basis. It’s not a magazine or a fashion house but it can teach me more than all the fashion blogs on the internet combined.
ADVANCED STYLE is the genius of Ari Seth Cohen as he captures older women and records their style advice. I absolutely concur with him that they can teach you a trick or two or ten. “Proof that personal style advances with age”, if you are truly passionate about fashion and style, then you will want to add this blog to your daily must-read list.
