Sometimes I come across an image that is just perfect.
It isn’t airbrushed, it isn’t a 14-year old girl in women’s clothing, it isn’t art directed.
I thought Linda Evangelista was the picture of perfection at Art Basel in Miami, earlier this month.
Yes, she’s a Supermodel. But she can teach us all a thing or two about not trying too hard – very little makeup, a nonchalant roll of a pant, sublime snake-skin flats, do-it-yourself hair and that air of self acceptance. Can you see it in her lovely green eyes?
There’s something to be said for a woman in her 40s, accepting her natural beauty, dressing for herself.
Worn at an event where spectacle is everything, quiet grace speaks volumes.
