If there ever was a patron saint for shopping #SECONDHANDFIRST this firecracker of a beauty is it. Not one to rest on her already extensive laurels, Dame Viv explains her ethos in this recent interview, proving that beauty, brain and brilliance isn't any less diminished for women still kicking it in their seventies.
Her advice is brazen, and sound. Her beauty and talents are as fierce and relevant as ever.
WHAT MAKES A WOMAN BEAUTIFUL?
True beauty flourishes inside a confident and dynamic woman. A lifelong beauty has flung her attentions well beyond the mercurial mirror frame, navigating her focus with her keen interest in the world around her. She's a champion of others, never flinching to put herself into the fray if the cause is just. She loves what she loves, and knows the value of good values. Beauty grown inward, is the fruition of a lifetime, a gentle but steely deliberate cultivation, and no happy accident of nature. Grateful for whatever good fortune she has mined, a true beauty owns her circumstance. Inward beauty's gaze grows outward, and leaves no small mark on the world at large.
How you define beauty alters the way beauty affects your world. Where you place your attention on what is beautiful, changes the way beauty is treated in your world.
Who and what are your definitions of beautiful?
