With the new release of Red Riding Hood coming out today I thought I would feature Director Catherine Hardwicke (age 55).
She is a great example of someone who is dressing in an updated, yet age appropriate way as she navigates the Hollywood scene.
Catherine shows her hip edge through her:
- choice of clothing with edgy details
- use of dramatic high contrast color combos such as white and black, and yellow and black
- Updated Ray Ban sunglasses
- & her cool accents like cage shoes and azure blue clutch.
Catherine stays age appropriate by knowing that sexy is not about letting it all hang out after 40; it is about being selective and showing off your “good bits” one at a time.
For example, the short black skirt above, shows off her great legs and looks youthful, but if she if wore it this skirt with a LOW cut yellow top, this would have been too much!
She also keeps things playful. Take a look at what could be a serious black and white suit. She had added a dash of Calfornia fun!
