Q: Who do you consider icons of style - well-known figures (over 55) who always dress well?

Simon Chang:

"Well-known mature style icons include Jane Fonda, 78, who is fit for glamour; Julie Andrews, 80, who is forever elegant; and Raquel Welsh, 75, who is still stunning after all these years."

Jan Stimpson:

“When women embrace their age and natural beauty through how they dress, they exude both confidence and grace. My style icons range from well-known figures such as Meryl Streep, 66, and Oprah Winfrey, 62, but most importantly from the women in my every day life who believe in expressing individuality through what they are wearing."


Peter Nygard:

“The most athletic-looking women are the best looking, in my eye. Fit, healthy, slim and sporty - that's the best look of all.”
