"I don't mind to look older. I don't have this urge that so many people have that they've always got to look young all
their lives. I think you should be the age you are and enjoy it... But if you want to have it, go ahead and have it,
but take a good look before you do because, just maybe, you look absolutely beautiful the way you are."

How wonderful is this! Whenever I see a profile on Vogue I am struck by how Grace stands our by being so completely and beautifully herself.
Must go listen to that Fresh Air interview ... and share this on my Style Maniac Facebook Page.
