The Awards season is in full-swing providing ample opportunities for our favorite celebrities to look their best or look like a mess on the Red Carpet.
One of the biggest minefields to navigate in the fashion world for women is the age-limit on certain fashion trends.

Although fashion designer, Betsy Johnson has no problem performing cartwheel in a tutu after the age of 60, that doesn’t mean the rest of the baby boomer generation is ready, willing or able to caught dead shopping next to her in a Forever 21 store.
