advanced style x the ace

It should come as no surprise that I am a fan of Advanced Style, as both a blog and concept, so I'm really excited about a party Ari Seth Cohen of AS and I will be hosting at the Ace Hotel tomorrow night. I can't recommend reading his blog enough, there are inspiring outfits and photos, but the best part is when the women Ari photographs talk about aging on both a personal and cultural level. John Waters says the only way to dress rebelliously nowadays seems to be to combat the frantic anti-aging attitude prevalent in so many magazines and in celebrity culture, and I suggest looking to these women for inspiration:
I often think about how delightful a tea party of some sort would be to have with a bunch such as this, and now it's actually happening! I'm looking forward to the cabaret portion especially. And if you haven't already watched Illona Royce Smithkin's video on Stylelikeu, I highly recommend that, as well.
I hate for everything on here to be about upcoming Fashion Week events but thankfully I'm enthusiastic about this little shindig and also think more people in general ought to see the photos above.

They're both immensely inspirational! In fact, they remind me of my mother...

I'm loving their styles. Cool old ladies are my role models like my late grandmother. At her 80 years birthday party she had high heels, fake eyelashes, white curly hair and her jacket was made of black lace. She was always very stylish and she dressed up in totally unique way :)

Roberta Tonelli said...

The photos are great and looks are very inspiring! Unique and full of personality all these stylish people!

I've seen that first fine lady around several blogs, and while she certainly goes beyond my own brand of extreme color, I have always wished her well for her audacity.

brightlightsbigcity said...

omg these are such cool pics! i hope when i'm that age i'll still have the energy to dress outside the box but ill probably just end up succumbing to chic wasp. or ill be a crazy cat lady. WHO KNOWS

I love how they played with the colors. And of course, nothing seems to matter when people love what they wear. The rainbow hair is absolutely out of this world but gorgeous. Like what my friend say, fashion is not limited to the young people. These pictures prove just that.

Gosh these ladys look awesome! Completely crazy but so self confident! This is so inspiring! But I can't decide whether I like the one with the yellow turban or the rainbow hair better... Oh well, they're all awesome!

Tatiana said...

hell, some cool grandma!
I personally believe in the same age period in normal life, like childhood or adolescence, for example. Of course, with their charms. Great respect for people who come into this period of life and youth not lost his spirit, if it was at all, because many people are starting to get old mentally long before the onset of biological aging. this as a panic before the test that you did not write. And then sort of wrote - and nothing!

Jean and Valerie said...

Can't tell you how delighted we are to see our photographs in Style Rookie! That's us, The Idiosyncratic Fashionistas, in the top photo (Jean left, Valerie right). Lynn Dell is all in yellow, and Christina Viera has the marvelous cross glasses. And checkered coat. And plaid pants. We haven't yet met Ann with the rainbow hair, but hopefully we will meet Ann and Tavi and a gazillion other fabulous women tonight at the Ace Hotel!

chica arcoiris said...

That is the best blog in the world haha I love it !!

Pashupati said...

I want to act like that when I'm that age, if I still like fashion then.
Kudos to them for not giving up on what you like because society tells you.
Compare to when I gave up on computing at 11-12 for a few years, because I was ashamed of being so young and people I tried to talk about that with mocked my age. (although then it wasn't liked to conventional beauty concepts as with liking fashion /and/ being stylish while being more aged, but to what was thought of as my capacities linked to my age; but I think the fact people are so against elder and younger (-15) who like fashion because it's "superficial" is linked to the ideas of wiseness and innocence associated with each age group respectively and thought of as not compatible with the superficiality associated with fashion)
(woah, I hope it's comprehensible, I need sleep)

I love how they mix their prints and work with color! ^^

the elders still have their crazy fashion sense left which I find inspiring. thanks, tavi for a winderful feautre on the advanced style. totall appreciate it! I wonder 50 years from now of what i'd lok like. I reckon i'd be someone FIERCE and totally a trendsetter of the 22nd century. hahah, ironic, if i still lived, that is.

cancercowboy said...

those insectile sunglasses are pretty cool. but the knack with these ladies is that they don't dress like society expects old people to dress. its extravagant and pretty but not exactly a call to arms against youth mania, imho.

EVERYTHING about that site makes me happy!!
Thank you so much for putting this up:)

Just heard about you (and heard you!) on NPR this morning. Great blog! Likewise, I love the agewise photos, as I'm in my 50's, love expressing myself through art and fashion, instead of worrying about getting older. Sorry, don't know how to attach photo, but check out my website carynfriedlander.com, you can see some aspect of me. Best of luck, you've got a great life and the ability to embrace passion!!! I'll be following yr blog..caryn

Zoé said...

I am a huge fan of Advanced Style and I adore how you have brought that to a wider audience... I think that Advanced Style, as a concept, is a truly great one and, in a modern world where it is so difficult to be original, I shall claim that I believe it to be very close to that - full of very inspiring and incredibly regal women.

Ok, so I have also been looking through some of your past posts. You are so witty and amusing, not to mention illuminating and interesting. I loved the post you did on the Virgin Suicides - although truth be told, I had hardly heard about it before. It is only when I searched it on google that I realised that a piece I did on two ivory lace dresses adopted from my French grandmother's, was very similar. - Anywho, I love your sense of style and the vibrant range. I hope this is not a personal question but 'How old are you?' I do not believe it says... You are American right? There seems to be a much larger range of vintage items in America. Whenever I wish to buy some on Ebay, they ALWAYS seem to come from the USA.

I am basically just a fifteen year old girl from 'merrie olde' England with an eclectic taste in hats, an adoration of the pre-raphaelite brotherhood (not that that is always very obvious) and a love of Fashion, without ever really following it. :)

Ciao, ciao, ciao!
