Jerry Hall vs. the rest of usApril 17th, 2014
There’s an ad for the Row Hotel, NYC, in the current New York mag. It’s right up front, double truck, full color, with Jerry Hall, aged 57, in red lipstick and a leopard skin coat, playing cougar to the younger man next to her (in his 20-30s?). He’s leaning into her, and his thoughts are probably “OMG she’s a Goddess.” And, of course, he’s right.
Then flip to pages 54 and 55, 18 full color, close up, straight forward portraits of ordinary, regular people who are 65 years old–illustrations for a story on middle old age–photographed by Martin Schoeller and hilariously written by Mark Jacobson.
My, what a difference Jerry Hall’s bone structure, photo shop, and eight years can make!
Of course she looks fabulous, and by comparison, the 65 year olds don’t. However, most of them don’t look half bad, either.
