Some want to be noticed without being seen. Some want to be noticed and seen. Others want to be on stage 24/7. While some truly fascinate us, we wish others would grow up or go away or both. Here’s some fashion over 40 that’s pure entertainment.
(left) Italian fashion writer and style icon. Her influence and knowledge of fashion makes her an authority among her peers. There is nothing haphazard about her eccentric style. She is reputed to have a clothing collection that includes thousands of dresses and hundreds of pairs of shoes with which she curates her unique look. She never appears in public in the same outfit twice.

She is known for her eccentric personal style, powdered face, and deep red cupid’s bow lipstick. Copycats and wannabees beware, many can try, but few will succeed at what Yaeger has mastered: elevating everyday dressing to performance art.
Beauty and the Beastly Temper, Naomi Campbell:
Former super model, Campbell has a rep for assaulting and abusing maids, agents, and underlings in her line of ire. She’s managed to escape doing real time for her assignations so far. But this year, she landed on the hot seat at The Hague to testify at the war crimes trial of Charles Taylor, the former president of Liberia. She thought the “gift” he sent her via emissaries was just a pouch of dirty rocks and not “blood diamonds” he took in return for helping allies during a bloody war with Sierra Leone.
At any age (47), having a bod this fabulous must be good for a girl’s ego. Why not take pix of yourself in your own bathroom send it to your 3 million adoring Twitter followers? Sometimes it’s a guilty pleasure to enjoy the bad taste of others without having to take your own clothes off!
Some rock chicks age with grace, grit, glamor and defiance (like Cher). Others are swallowed by their demons. Love used to be able to make music, but at 47 she’s just making a mess. Oh and look, here she is in court.
