Her unretouched cover is the latest step in the beauty industry’sgrowing appreciation of older women. It followsHelen Mirren’s Allure coverfrom August, which accompanied Allure’s announcement it is banning the term “anti-aging” from its pages.
“Whether we know it or not, [the term is]subtly reinforcing the messagethat aging is a condition we need to battle,” wrote Editor-in-Chief Michelle Lee. “Repeat after me: Growing older is a wonderful thing because it means that we get a chance, every day, to live a full, happy life.”
Fonda and Mirren gave us even more gold when theyrocked the runway togetherat a L’Oreal fashion show last week.
Keep it up, ladies.
