Proving that you don't have to have youth to have style, designer Peter Jensen always chooses grown-up muses. And how about that for a spot of rhyming poetry? I'll be working for Hallmark next. Meryl Streep was the inspiration behind his resort 2012 collection and for autumn/winter 2012 he's chosen the fabulous Thelma Spiers, 53. A Casual Glamour enthusiast and flat shoe-lover, London milliner and DJ, Spiers has appeared on That's Not My Age before. Here's Thelma:

Thelma Spiers knows how to have fun with fashion, and is half of the design team Bernstock Spiers who have a hat shop on London's Brick Lane and have been working together since 1982.
In the era of the Del Rey handbag, it's refreshing when designers recognise older women who dress well.
