And what about the ‘old and beautiful?’

This 60-Year-Old Swimsuit Model Proves Age is Just a Number:

 

Tom Ford said “I am tired of the cult of youth. The cultural rejection of old age, the stigmatization of wrinkles, grey hair, of bodies furrowed by the years. I am fascinated by Diana Vreeland, Georgia O’Keeffe and Louise Bourgeois, women who have let time embrace them without ever cheating.”

With all the hype about staying young and trendy these days, we seem to have forgotten about the fact that beauty lies within the older generation too.

It’s as if it is almost a crime to be old these days.

Old people are real, the ageing process is a glorious and wonderful thing if we only accept it and stop battling with it.

The elderly lead interesting and fascinating passionate fun filled lives too if they want to.

We can all be inspired by the elderly.

Here are a few pictures that depict just how colourful and interesting ageing can be. To show that ageing could be something one can actually look forward too.
