Since her Becoming book tour kicked off last year, she's worn those (now) infamous Givenchy boots, Cushnie, Pyer Moss, and Stine Goya.

When Did Going To Court Become A Fashion Show?

It’s 2019 and, in more than half of the states in the United States, it remains legal to discriminate against members of the LGBTQ+ community in the workplace, in housing, in public spaces, and many other areas.

It seems that women over 60 are having a moment — particularly in politics, where Nancy Pelosi, 78, is once again dominating in D.C., and in entertainment, where Glenn Close, 71, made headlines in January for her inspiring Golden Globes speech.
