Yesterday on January 25, 2017 we all learned the sad new one of our favorite style icons, Mary Tyler Moore had died at age 80. This is not one of those cases where someone died and I did not think about her recently, either! She is a part of our fashion icon reference book! On Second City Style and on Fountain of 30 we have constantly referred to her style for her 60s style capri pants and flats as Laura Petrie on The Dick Van Dyke Show, and the multitude of fashionably work-appropriate looks she wore as the professional Mary Richards on The Mary Tyler Moore Show in the 70s.
The Pirelli Calendar 2017 stood out this year as it does every year. But beyond photographer Peter Lindbergh’s message to “have the guts to be yourself” was the fact that he conveyed this message using mainly models/celebs in their late 30s and 40s. Models like Uma Thurman and Penelope Cruz were photographed in black and white in all their bare faced glory. In 2016, some of those models from the Pirelli Calendar also stood out for their sartorial choices. Not to mention that their fashion has become better with age. Let’s check out some of these beauties and their style savvy looks of the year.
