Caftans and heaps of statement jewelry are my current obsessions and no one wore them better than the Countess Marta Marzotto. Up until her death in July of 2016 Marzotto, the highly visible Italian designer, muse and socialite was known for her exuberant dress and gusto for life. While working on an Instagram story on her I was struck by the fact that she was always photographed smiling, and not just demurely smiling for the camera but beaming and engaging with those around her, barely aware of the camera. Her spirit is an inspiration and a road map of how to embrace life at every stage. To say women over fifty are now refusing to be invisible is setting the bar too low. Why not be the life of the party like Marta Marzotto? A smile and expressing your true self is the best kind of beauty at every age.
