    "Our culture is fearful of ageing," said Franklin, "and especially ageing women. I say, 'Stop apologising for getting older. Embrace it.' I want young women to see that beauty ages beautifully and there is no need to feel that getting older is something that has to be medicated, managed with surgery or be obsessed about."

    From Advanced Style... "But I'm an Old Lady" is a response I hear all the time, when I approach people and ask if I can take their photo. I always reassure them that they look wonderful and are exactly what I'm looking for.

After I was finished she thanked me with a big smile on her face...."
