I fell for Ari Seth Cohen in 2015 when I was invited to the premiere of his film Advanced Style at the San Diego Jewish Film Festival.
Cohen celebrates the fearless “fashion and wisdom of the senior set” on his blog, which he has parlayed into a best-selling book (and a sequel) as well as the namesake documentary. At the festival, he asked to take my photo (that’s really why I fell for him) but then said I was too young to be part of his Advanced Style entourage. So I was surprised, and delighted, to see my photo — with 1,795 likes! — on his Instagram feed.
In February I interviewed Cohen at Rancho Mirage Public Library, where we talked about many images from his second book, Advanced Style: Older & Wiser.
For this month’s issue of Palm Springs Life, Cohen focused his lens on some of the stylish seniors in the Coachella Valley.
