SILVER FOX

by

Cindy Joseph spent decades as a makeup artist in the fashion industry before ending up on the other side of the camera as a fashion model, “discovered” at age 49. Now proudly 61, the Yonkers woman touts timeless beauty not only through modeling and a signature cosmetics line, BOOM! By Cindy Joseph, but by talking about the “pro-age revolution” every chance she can.

SAYING ‘NO’ TO HOOCHIE MAMAS

by

The impetus for creating Stella M’Lia occurred when designer Stella McCaffrey’s daughter, Katherine, turned 12 and began receiving two to three invitations a month for bar/bat mitzvahs. “Katherine needed fairly dressy dresses, and the shock of it all was when you went out to the stores you couldn’t find anything that was appropriate or tasteful, because a lot of it was black, bedazzled, short and tight spandex, which made the girls look like ‘hoochie mamas’ before they were even technically teenagers,” McCaffrey says.

Her name is Lisa Fantino, and her book, “Amalfi Blue: Lost & Found in the South of Italy,” is due out mid-January from Wanderlust Women Travel Ltd., her Mamaroneck-based concierge travel business.

A MILKSHAKE FOR THE SOUL

by

“I like having 9,000 balls in the air,” says entrepreneur Amy Jurkowitz. “I do better that way.” The busy mother of five (three of whom are applying to college this year) isn’t kidding. With two businesses— Milkshake, a website she co-founded about individuals and organizations that give back, and Jurkowitz & Co., a consulting firm – the Greenwich resident clearly thrives on organized chaos.

by

Jilly Dyson has “sailed” the world on her marine paintings, whose swirling impasto evokes both Winslow Homer and J.M.W. Turner. I caught up with her on a beautiful fall day aboard SeaFair, the mega-yacht venue for exhibits and dining, when it was docked in Greenwich.
