Hollywood proves that age comes with beauty and style.
The art of being well-dressed is a lifelong skill – and, that being said, it can also be the key to aging gracefully. Take it from us (and the fashion industry): age is no longer synonymous with “has been.” Getting old used to be all about floppy hats and digging in the garden, but now, it’s all about being fabulous. Your years after 60 are certainly the best of your life – the kids are grown, your career has reached its peak, and it’s time to enjoy the golden years.
No matter what age you are, the key to refined style and poise is multifaceted. Many of us may not perfect it until we reach a certain age. It starts with body type and building your wardrobe to reflect your favorite silhouettes. Just because designs are flaunted on the runway by 20-somethings doesn’t mean that they’re “too young” for you. It’s all about staying true to your personal style and giving attention to the small details that accentuate and bring your outfit to life.
ELYSIAN is loving the embrace of mature beauties and icons over 60. The Red Carpet and street stylings of these fashion icons are all the makings of an ageless style, suitable across seasons and generations.
Lauren Hutton, model and fashion icon, was known for her signature gapped front teeth at the height of her career in the 70s. She’s continued to model for the last four decades, increasingly proving her reputation as the queen of fashionistas. These days, she’s known for her charm that seems to only enhance with time. Hutton appeared as a guest judge on Project Runway, walked the runway in Bottega Veneta’s spring show in 2017, and most recently, she appeared on the cover of Vogue Italia – just weeks before her 74th birthday. A slacks and button-up kind of gal, her fashion choices prove that a tailored suit is not only endlessly classy but a must-have for all ages.

Having recently celebrated her 70th birthday, Maye Musk has been in the modeling industry for 50 years and shows absolutely no sign of hitting the brakes. A model since age 15, Musk managed to accomplish so many amazing things: work four jobs in her 20s, earn a master’s degree in nutrition and raise three children – one of them being Elon Musk, co-founder and CEO of Tesla, Inc. Constantly on the move, Maye Musk has embraced her age with a poise so majestic that the contracts just keep coming. She appeared nude on the cover of Vogue in 2011 (with the headline Is she just too old for this?), appeared in Beyoncé’s “Haunted,” and was named Covergirl’s spokesperson in 2017. Maye Musk is the all-in-one package.

Carolina Herrera is known for her exceptional style and distinct personal touches she adds to her designs. The Venezuelan designer has dressed a number of White House first ladies, including Michelle Obama and Jackie Kennedy, so we know that she has class and sophistication that are utterly timeless. Known for her signature white button-down, often paired with a flared A-line skirt, she was the first to define a “style uniform.” In spite of her announcement that is stepping down from leadership in her company, Herrera insisted to the New York Times: “I’m not retiring. I’m moving forward!”

Oscar, Emmy, Golden Globe and Tony award-winning English actress Dame Helen Mirren has been active in the industry since 1966 – and she’s still turning heads. At the age of 70, she reportedly approached Vin Diesel about her role in “The Fate of the Furious” – not the other way around. With more than 100 acting credits, Mirren is the epitome of an icon of the silver screen. A huge fan of lace gowns and beaded details, Mirren occasionally opts for a simpler number, like her choice at the 2018 Oscars.
