Since 2008 Ari Seth Cohen captures all the “ladies of style” in New York city, those who don’t fear the passing of the years, collecting their most curious, stylish and sometimes even extreme looks in his blog: Advanced Style.
As time went by this web-journal became a cult phenomenon and now a movie, directed by Lina Plioplyte alongside Ari Seth Cohen: ADVANCED STYLE – THE MOVIE (in Italian theaters from 19 February).
The protagonists are seven New Yorkers – between 62 and 95 years old – all different for character and personal history, but united by the love for the style and an eclectic elegance.
From the Upper West Side “Countess of Glamour” to the performance artist and “healer” in search of true love, these ladies are the living proof that age is just a state of mind.
