Finally, A Cool Old Bag!


I have a feeling that before too long, we will all be sick of this 82 year old model but for now I am pretty damn impressed. The clothes by Joanna Sykes are genuinely age defying, aren’t they? Silver leather jeans and a nude silk shirt seems like an obvious combination now that Sykes has put them together but I never would have thought of it.


This outfit looks even more beautiful on a more conventional model. What is not to love here?!? If Patti Smith could see this shit, she might even give up her customary black on black.   Patti, we are ready for a change, just this once!


I’m often annoyed at myself for getting married in gold leather pants but now I’m thinking it was a good idea after all.   This was either 8 or 9 years ago, I can never remember the exact date. If I can hang on until I’m 82, I guess I could wear them with a nude silk shirt, preferably by Joanna Sykes, who is a fucking genius.

  2. Love your gold pants very cool and I see that old bird every week in The Guardian weekend mag and I didn’t know she was 82!

    That 82 year old model is beautiful. I l think I saw her in a magazine some years ago, and thought how wonderful it was to see a stylish and ageless beauty.

    The outfit looks great on both models.

    Great wedding ensemble!

    You know how I feel about the gold leather wedding pants. They’re right up there with the Lesbian Stick for favorite Sister Wolf story of days gone by.

  5. I LOVE your gold wedding pants!
    And that 82-year old model is fantastic. ‘Bout time there was someone to keep Carmen Dell Orefice company.

    As long as the 82 year old model doesn’t appear in an Ad for Denture Paste, french kissing – then that is ok too.
