Linda in Black (with Cutouts!)

When I saw photos of what Linda Fargo, senior vice president of the fashion office and store presentation at Bergdorf Goodman, wore to the CFDA awards earlier this week, I actually said out loud, “Whoa.”

She looks amazing in this Michael Kors cutout dress. Linda is in her 50s and I admire her fearless style so much. She said this to The New York Times about her dress:

“I had to have a tan to wear this. And a smile.”

I’ve posted on Linda before—when she wore her yellow pants, or her coral jacket and cat-eye sunglasses—and she continues to inspire me.

What do you think of Linda in this dress?

Her perfect bob makes me want to say a prayer to the Hair Gods: When I go gray, please give me this hair color or help me find a colorist who can tell me how to be a silver fox of this magnitude.

The makeup is perfection and how do you get that hair color? Photo by Ilya S. Savenok.

If any of YOU fine foxes out there know how to get this shade of silver, please do tell. I want to hear all about it.

Wow...she looks amazing! I also love her hair. I say if you can pull it off go for it...if I had a figure like hers, I would. I am back home now and so sorry I missed florals, but all of you looked summery-fun!!

She looks simply amazing. Her confidence and chic style always inspires me. Love that hair colour but not sure how to get it. I'm also loving that "perfect" shade of red lipstick on her.

Lord, I'll have to remember this when it's time to go silver! The hair hue, the successful bold makeup, the undeniable sex appeal. I think I'd want a longer haircut, though, and a sideswept bang.
