The book is fabulous. The photos are superb and the ladies (and a few men) all unique and stylish in their own way.

Advanced Style is Ari Seth Cohen's blog-based ode to the confidence, beauty, and fashion that can only be achieved through the experience of a life lived glamorously. It is a collection of street fashion unlike any seen before-focused on the over-60 set in the world's most stylish locales. The (mostly) ladies of Advanced Styleare enjoying their later years with grace and panache, marching to the beat of their own drummer. These timeless images and words of wisdom provide fashion inspiration for all ages and prove that age is nothing but a state of mind.

Ari Seth Cohen started his blog inspired by his own grandmother's unique personal style and his lifelong interest in the put-together fashion of vibrant seniors. Each of his subjects sparkles like a diamond after long years spent refining and perfecting their individual look and approach to life. The Advanced Style book will showcase, in luscious full-color, the best of the blog, but will also act as a true guidebook with all-new material featuring wardrobes, interviews, stories, and advice from a cadre of his most chic subjects, along with a large selection of never-before-seen photography-fresh off of sidewalk catwalks around the world!

The book, and indeed the blog, are not merely a collection of photographs, but an anthology of personalities and stories. Stories of lives lived to the fullest, lived with an abundance of lipstick along the way!

Hope radiates off the pages and it changes the landscape. Ari’s book proudly displays that beauty and style continue throughout the life span, and that it is just as aesthetically pleasing as that of youth, only different.
