"I'ma take your grandpa's style," Macklemore famously rapped to us last year. Well, he can have it, because we're about to cop the style of these fabulous women of a certain age in Advanced Style, debuting at Greenwich Village's Quad Theater today. The film, the brainchild of street style photographer Ari Seth Cohen and director Lina Plioplyte, follows seven notable New York seniors (aged 62 to 95) whose approach to fashion styling will leave you excited, and not depressed, about getting older.
With appearances by Ari himself, Iris Apfel, Dita von Teese, and more, Advanced Style is a must-see for anyone who appreciates a bit of creative dressing. Get your first taste with an exclusive clip from the film below.
Bonus: Ari, Lina and the seven profiled women will be hosting Q&As with viewers this weekend after the following showtimes:
Friday, September 26th after the 7:50pm show;
Saturday, September 27th after the 1:05pm and 7:50pm shows; and
Sunday, September 28th after the 1:05pm show.
