Ingmari Lamy

I am finally in Seattle to celebrate a friend's wedding, after a few weeks of whirlwind travel. It's hard to explain how incredibly insightful and moving each of my trips has been. I am constantly meeting so many inspiring people, hearing their life stories, and it's difficult to process everything that is happening at the moment. On Tuesday I am off to London for a few days, and then back to New York for a few weeks, where I hope to write more in depth about these incredible experiences.

I met Ingmari Lamy in Stockholm and asked  her to share a few words about her experience as model  working in her 60s below.

When I came into modeling at the age of 19 and shortly after that did my first cover for Harpers Bazaar, I was a young woman loving nature and the world of fashion was art to me. Using make-up was great during the photo-shoot itself, the playfulness and the transforming possibilities. I loved it! Even so, I always took my make up off after work and was " a natural". That`s the way it was for me. Being in the world of fashion today, still modeling at the age of 65, I have kept these habits of staying natural. For my skin I use organic olive oil, that`s the way I like it. I want to inspire women, young and old, to know their true inner beauty and strength. I want them to know that their beauty is always there every moment. Always present. And then we can play with make-up and clothes! I love the way your women are colorful and expressing a true personality. Maybe when I get older I will be wearing make-up as well.

A stately snow queen with the loveliest features, bone structure and hair color offset by such peaceful eyes - and it's all completely natural - wow!

Oh wow! Ingmari is even more beautiful now than she was in the 60s. Sound like you're super busy, let me know if you have time for a cuppa when you're in London x

I love Ingmari Lamy's natural look; especially how she chooses not to go under the knife.

As an illustrator, I see the top photo as a lovely inspiration for the Snedronningen, or the White Witch for Narnia!

At 60 she has grown into a beautiful woman. I agree 100% with her 'natural beauty' philosophy and I love her long hair and her cjoice of silver in her style.

I am interested in how some of these ladies choose their look. Do they go by what they look good in or are they just throwing that to the winds and going with what feels good on. What is comfortable, cool, warm?? Some favorite look of their youth?

The gray outfit is lovely with her gray hair. She looks like a Scandinavian fairy princess!

Her face is much more interesting now. I love the monocrome of greys and whites in her outfit. She has aged with grace and style.
