I definitely makes you think that there is truth in the slogan "grow old gracefully".

he's ok, but she creeps me out! the red mouth, the hair!

now if she a had hat on, different story maybe. come to think of it, one reason old people looked amazing in the past was the hats!

I think she's lovely. It's refreshing to see an older woman with a face. What a lovely smile. What style!

Another case where you're breaking ground with your candid on the street photos.

If she in a studio shot, she'd be forced to wear a wig.

Here she is with her real hair. Yes, women go bald too as they get older. She's gone to a salon for styling for her appearance at this event and they've done a great job while still keeping her as she is.

The other option is they could have done danish braids.

Makes me thing of old money/old style.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:13 AM) : 

and If it was a studio shot, she'd be not only forced to wear a wig but photoshoped as well. very properly ;]

Not bald, but a case of thinning hair, and it doesn't seem to affect her world. And because it doesn't, and her aura even jumps off the photo, she rocks. He rocks, too.

I think that most anyone can look graceful in old age if perfectly clothed and groomed...not just Manhattan rich folk.


Blogger The Sartorialist said ... (11:58 AM) : 

I'm very proud of the fact that if you look through my archives you will see many graceful older people regardless of their income level.

I could be mistaken, but I'm almost certain that that's Judith Peabody, who is the epitome of class and grace. She is incredibly elegant and is also a major philanthropist. I met her years ago when I was volunteering at GMHC. (Sorry the excerpt below is so long, I think she's pretty damn fascinating.)

From NY Social Diary:
Judy Peabody is a fascinating New York figure. At night you might see her and her husband Sam at theatre, opera and ballet openings, both elegantly turned out – she in couture and brilliant jewels, and he in well tailored dark suit or black tie – the perfect picture of late 20th-century cosmopolitan sophistication...

[She] is a longtime member of the New York social glitterati and supporter of cultural and philanthropic causes. However, beyond the routine (and demanding) fundraising and organizing roles that these causes require, Mrs. Peabody long ago took another path and a bigger personal step in the process. For the past two decades she has been a deeply devoted, hands-on volunteer to AIDS patients. Her day-to-day work as therapist assisting victims of the dread disease has had an almost saintly impact on the lives of countless individuals and families.

thank you for posting that


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:41 AM) : 

Yes, who wouldn't want to look like Minnie and Roman Castevet?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:42 AM) : 

They are lovely but what makes the photo stand out--and what probably caught the sartorialist eye--is the coordinating red scarves. That's just adorable!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:40 PM) : 

Beautiful smiles, a happy moment nicely photographed. "Very chill" people, as some would say.

Does he remind anyone else of the late, great choreagrapher George Balanchine?

I enjoyed this photo so much.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:24 PM) : 

Can't stand the Mr. Kenneth 60's flip on her, not to mention the fur. He's Gore Vidal manque'.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:33 PM) : 

This is Judith and Samuel Peabody.


Blogger Charlotte said ... (7:00 PM) : 

Great pic but imagine the upkeep on that 'do' of hers.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:42 PM) : 

lovely couple. but her hair looks like the hair of gary oldman in which he played a count in his movie w winona ryder and keanu reeves


Blogger Donnie Gayfield said ... (4:13 PM) : 

Why does gray have to be equated with age? They are beautiful as their spirit radiates from their life experiences--which we devalue in this country. We look at age through the prism of a pervasive youth culture. And, therefore, we see age as decay, not as growing in wisdom, experience, grace, and style.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:16 AM) : 

i couldn't agree with you more Donnie ...very well stated.
