Today’s Daily is legendary photographer Mary Ellen Mark, who has photographed everyone from Fellini and The Beatles to Woody Allen. We love her because she always stuck to being and working as an individual and refused to be a clone. Your Style Is Your Style, and Mary Ellen’s is on SLU
My mom is the such a role model for aging with grace, strength and vibrance. I’ve never seen anyone who takes risks like her and allows herself to be a beginner again and again — always willing to try new things and stay current and move with the times instead of stuck in the past. No Botox, no plastic surgery, she is comfortable with aging naturally and not buying into the notion that you can’t have style or sex appeal with age. To me, she’s the hottest woman in the world because she only becomes more and more herself as she gets older. She’s the star of Today’s Ageless Daily, live on SLU, which I highly recommend you WATCH NOW! Love love love, Lily
Today’s Ageless Daily is legendary dancer, Carmen de Lavallade. She is still going as far as she can at 83, which means continuing to dance and create her own one woman show. Among many things about her past, we were kind of floored when we found out that she was partly responsible for birth of the Alvin Ailey Dance Company. Your Style Is Your Story and Carmen’s is live on SLU now.
Today’s Daily is regal as she is real — artist Michele Oka Doner: “I have watched older women, and younger women watch me; it’s part of the big river of life.” Your Style Is Your Story, and Michele’s is live on SLU now.
For the next two weeks, we are celebrating badass women who don’t buy into the notion that you can’t have style or sex appeal when you get older. Today’s Daily is the no-age body, mind, & spirit guru, Yamuna Zake. “Lou Reed once said to me, ‘Do you know why women hate you ?’” “I have been told all of my life get rid of the gray by women, but men stop me everyday.”
Friday’s Daily video was the musician Oh Land. She says that the way she dresses says that she’s not afraid of being judged, and “I have become more and more my six-year-old self.”
"I come from a long line of strong, independent women who do whatever the fuck they want." - Leslie Crow
Our new turquoise-laced muse, Leslie Crow, is a one-of-a-kind kind who’s fervent about making a difference, learning how to be sustainable and leave a minimal ecological impact on the world, just like her grandma once did.
"I look like a big fuck you to the conventional ideology of beauty." - Shine Blackhawk in our Dailies.
"I am a man and I can be powerful in women’s clothes. I get a lot of comments… are you a boy or a girl? Every day I have to prove why I look like this, and that becomes the fight — never compromising." - Casper-Malte Jörgensen in our video series Dailies.
Today’s Daily is my daughter and partner-in-crime, Lily, who bravely talks about refusing to cave to the skinny-girl norm with punishing dieting. “When I ate and worked out for the wrong reasons, I wasn’t my most beautiful. Now I love dressing for my body just as it is. I wouldn’t trade it.” Your Style is Your Story and Lily’s is live on SLU now. x Elisa
