Those stylish grandmothers

It started with a blog 

"My name is Ari Seth Cohen," says the writer, a photographer.

Ari roams the streets of New York looking for stylish and creatively dressed grandmothers.  Capturing women as old as 100 – who, in the words of one model, "challenge stereotypical views on age and ageing'" – is obviously a labor of love.  And now the images have now been brought together in a book.

Launched as a lavish hardback at the end of May, Advanced Style is now roaring up the Amazon ratings, and reaping huge interest from fashion magazines.  This even includes the sedate upper-class UK mag, The Lady, which raves that the "remarkable images" prove that "beauty really DOES improve with age." 

Tired of looking at fashion photographs of skinny teenagers in ridiculous frills?  You will adore these images of "gorgeous grandmothers" who refuse to take the advancing years seriously. As Ari says himself, "Advanced Style offers proof from the wise and silver-haired set that personal style advances with age."

Featured: one of the most adorable pix from his blog.  And Ari Seth Cohen himself.
