“I wanted four iconic women with strong personalities to show that feminine beauty is ageless. I chose Peter Lindbergh, with whom I have collaborated several times, because his photographs are timeless and true to real life. I wanted to convey a sense of reality, of clothes that offer natural elegance and the normality of everyday life,” said Armani in a press release. “Nadja Auermann, Yasmin Le Bon, Stella Tennant and Eva Herzigová show themselves for what they are today: deeply fascinating women, with a proud look and without artifice.”Image: Instagram/ Armani Official
There’s no supermodel quite like the ’90s supermodel. These classic beauties exemplify that age is nothing but a number and that women in their 40s and 50s are now looking better than ever.Image: Instagram/ Balmain Paris
