Who What Wear fans know that we love turning the spotlight on stylish older women in fashion, and thanks to Vogue, we found our latest muse: 54-year-old Sophie Fontanel, a French writer and fashion columnist for Parisian publication L'Obs.
With one peek at her Instagram, you can see that she has style in spades. In her interview with the magazine, she revealed that 80% of her wardrobe is vintage and that her style is meant to convey "softness, gentleness, sense of humor, [and] wittiness" rather than sex appeal.
She also has some wise words about how you can learn to dress well—and it has nothing to do with buying new clothes. "If you want to be well dressed, you have to learn by watching old movies, by going to the museum, and by surfing on the internet," she told Vogue. "You have to read good books, to read poetry. It's when you put nice things into your soul that you understand how to dress well." Amen to that.
