Forty and fabulous: the new recruits
Apart from the London Olympics and the David Hockney exhibition at the Royal Academy, in 2012, I'm looking forward to welcoming some fabulous new members to the Style Begins at Forty Brigade. I know, I know, all that tedious stuff about yoga, diet and well-being, it's like she's middle-aged already, but Hollywood Princess/Queen of the Kitchen, Gwyneth Paltrow will be joining our ranks - and boring us silly with anti-ageing advice - come September.
He's already figured out the perfect way to deal with a receding hairline and under-eye bags, Jude Law is approaching mid-life sartorially prepared.
Doesn't seem like five-minutes since we hailed 15-year-old Vanessa Paradis singing Joe le Taxi. My advice for mid-life? Keep wearing the Chanel.
Excellent as Stringer Bell in The Wire and bonkers-tastic as Luther, drug dealer-turned-cop, Idris Elba hits the big 4-0 in September.
I don't believe it! Marshall Mathers III joins the Mid-lifers Club in October. Gotta feeling Eminem is going to get a whole lot angrier in his middle years.
Forever 39, Patsy Stone, needs to take a reality check and tune into That's Not My Age. Growing older is Absolutely Fabulous. Honest. Sweetie, darling.
