"The well-mannered, modern woman should never be — or appear to be — older than thirty-five. (Thirty-eight, maybe, if you are genetically gifted, incredibly wealth and/or have access to Cate Blanchette’s stem cells.) Visible aging is inconsiderate and self-indulgent. By not dying your hair or moisturizing routinely, you are hurting the people around you, forcing them to confront their own mortality with each puckered crease of exposed elbow skin."
"Avoid daylight and un-retouched images. If you must be present in three dimensions, limit yourself to dark basement venues without access to internet, cameras or cell phones. Socialize only in select circles. Ensure those circles are not under your eyes."
