Quote-Unquote: Inez Van Lamsweerde


Because good advice never gets old (and we still get awe-struck by every snap this woman takes):

I like getting older. I actually feel better ever day. The only thing I don’t like about getting older is maybe if there is something physical that doesn’t work as well anymore—like health things. I do worry sometimes that after menopause your face will fall off your skull—the estrogen is starting to go and everything just falls off your face. [Laughs] I don’t want that to happen. But little wrinkles and stuff, I’m not fighting right now. I mean, like I said, the only thing I really don’t like is the puffy eye. But surgery or botox, I can’t imagine doing. I was talking about it with Christy Turlington once, and she was saying, ‘Yeah, if you do all that, you will never know what you would look like old.’ And I agree with that actually. It’s true.— Inez Van Lamsweerde's Top Shelf (11/14/11)

    She is amazingly talented and is cool with ageing. That's kind of a rare thing for women in her position, who work with fashion, models etc so often. This made me respect her even more!


Dearest ITG Reader,

We're working on something new called Glossier. It's launching soon(!) and we want you to be the first to know updates.
