Quicklink: Women Over-40 are Taking Over

Jezebel explores the notable prominence of over 40 actresses in the US media right now. This month alone, several major players in the publishing industry have featured over 40 actresses on their covers including Elle and Vogue. Harpers Bazaar editor Laura Brown notes, “I love that they’ve grown into their style. One of the things about getting older is you do grow into your sense of self. You don’t look victim-y anymore,” she adds, “The young actresses are fascinating in their own way, but they need to be put in the wine barrel a bit longer.”
