Could marrying an older man, make a woman become older in her style?
Tuesday, February 21, 2012
Yes, more often than not. I've also observed women who married younger men seem to be more aware of remaining youthful in their style --to be in sync with their partners. And that doesn'y necessarily mean invasive procedures (though I see it often).
Keeping youthful in your look means never look too "perfect" with every hair in place ( coined helmet-head yers ago). It is instantly aging and closes even a possible 20 year gap between an older husband and younger wife.The Callista effect -- pale, studied, and controlled--is well described in a Feb 10th NY Times article.
Ann Romney who fortunately has no phsychological age-gap issues to fill, is a great example of doing it right- stylishly, appropriately and youthfully. Her unaffected good looks are geared to project healthy vanity (and the importance of health), without too much artifice. Kudos to her! Many "political wives" (not an easy role) could take a page from her...as could women in general.
