Jan Shure | Posted 06.09.2013 | UK Style
Jan Shure

If nothing else, sheer exposure to celebrities over the age of 50 disporting themselves, for better or worse, in fashionable clothes across magazines, newspapers and the internet should have banished forever the notion of fashion being for the under-50s alone.
