During the past months, I learned that one of the keys to guarantee a smooth transition from living in the USA to living in Germany, is not to compare things in absolute terms: 'this is much better here, the other thing is much better there...' Things are just different and I'm lucky to have the opportunity to experience them all.
But the moment I saw a fabulous 69-year-old Lauren Hutton rocking September issue cover of ELLE Germany, I said to myself: 'wow, this people have a few things to teach the world about embracing aging in media.' Don't you think? And we're talking about the September issue, the Super Bowl of fashion magazines. French are also great at that too.
As much as I enjoy a good Penelope, Beyonce or Gwyneth cover, I feel equally inspired by a cover like this: aging is beautiful. Age brings knowledge, experience, peace and endless emotional resources to make the best of things and just be happier.
How do you guys feel about this editorial line?
