Advance Style I am pleased to hear that Isabella Rossellini


(the daughter of Ingrid Bergmann) has been offered her job back as the Lancôme beauty model, after about 20 years of absence. Does this signal an attitude change?


It is amazing that she was a single mum, a successful actor, incredibly stunning and just turned 40 when she was sacked. All because she was too old to be in a make- up advert for wrinkle prevention. Judging by her recent photographs, she has not succumbed to the knife but chosen to grow old gracefully and looks great for it, she too has strong views on the subject, likening plastic surgery to modern day foot-binding. I know how harsh the fashion industry can be, selling is the aim and youth and beauty are the game. Is the trend for ‘nip and tuck’ not just another form of misogyny? Is it a way of saying despite being a good person, employee or business manager and a healthy, vibrant older member of the community, you just aren’t good enough because you are a woman, you are not allowed to become less-sexually attractive? Whereas a man grows old naturally with no judgement or comment of such harsh negativity.

The reason for her reinstatement is due to the fact a female director is in charge of Lancôme, the old male CEOs have gone along with ageing attitudes of sexual objectification. The realisation that make- up is something women often use to make themselves feel good and well-groomed in the same way a man would shave or don a suit - it is not just a means to exude glamour for seduction. I also feel that she is a very chic style role model who has an air of confident character, elegance and substance. Certainly, I see in her shoots, an individual who exudes personality, long- live individual creative style, the sort that can advance well– remember age is just a number it’s the person inside that counts.

Emphasis on character, intelligence and being a good citizen along with other admirable skills, talents and attributes should be the focus of praise for all, not just their beauty. This is too superficial and transient to be the main reason to praise a girl or a woman, we don’t do it to the boys or the men.
