Trudie Styler still knows how to rock. In London last week, Sting’s wife was spotted heading out of a nightclub wearing a very low V-neck sweater that revealed her sexy, strappy bra. At 60, Styler looks great in the risqué outfit — like she could blend in with One Direction’s groupies — but her clothing choice brings up a bigger question: Should you be showing your bra at 60 even if you look smoking hot?
Styler has 4 grown kids, tons of tantric sex (great exercise!), and presumably does yoga everyday to keep her body looking like she hasn’t aged a day since the 1980s. When I first saw this photo, my first reaction was hot damn! But then I passed it around the office for other opinions and while half of us thought she was impossibly attractive (and she is) in this look, the other half cringed calling the flesh-baring top inappropriate.
The actress isn’t the only almost-senior citizen to draw criticism for borrowing clothes from her daughters’ closets. Madonna, 56, is routinely criticized for her racy looks, with many saying the Material Girl should hang up her latex and cone bras and try a more conservative look. And at 58, mogul momager Kris Jenner isn’t shy about showing some skin (and pillaging through her famous daughters’ closets). Fashion designer Betsey Johnson is 72 and still cartwheels down the runway in pigtails and tutus — and with her upcoming stint on “Dancing With the Stars” she’s bound to break a few fashion rules.
So help us settle this debate by taking the poll below. And be sure to back up your vote with a comment! Does Trudie get a free pass with her silver leather bra? Or is it time to retire the look?
