About the Author
Gigi Schilling is the Founder of SoAgeless. She aspires to inspire you to Act your Ageless! Gigi is 58 and considers herself ageless. She loves to laugh, wear high heels, and be a curvaceous size 10. Born in Brazil to European parents, Gigi views herself as nomad living in multiple cultures. She has lived in many places: Miami, New York City, Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, the Bahamas, Buenos Aires, and Patagonia. Educated in Rio de Janeiro, she received a Bachelors of Science in Journalism. Her greatest legacy is her 19-year-old son Alexander. In 2010, Gigi created a community on Facebook called, Over 50 & Irresistible, based on the paradox she coined, "Too old to live at 50 – yet, too young to die at 50?" In 2016, she decided to do away with the number and SoAgeless was born. In 2017, Gigi published her first book, Ageless Bride, to inspire the over 50 woman to shed outdated rules and allow herself to enjoy the magic and romance of being a bride.

Any encore or over 50 bride-to-be shouldn't go down the aisle without reading this book first… or for city hall for that matter. Even if you are not a 20 something bride, the author urges you to own your wedding day goddess-style. She enlists the help of a dozen world-class fashion designers on how just how you can shop for that bridal gown that will “scream this is it when you zip it up”. Now that’s that aha moment will brides want to capture. Beyond shopping, these fashionistas sagely serve up inspirational messages that will leave any bride walking on air. From Betsey Johnson, a three-time encore bride to Zac Posen, Vicky Tiel, Isaac Mizrahi, Guo Pei, collectively they assert that the older bride has a definite advantage over younger brides: “So many women feel they’re just beginning to live after 50." How true. And they’re right that the confidence, grace, and self-assurance women over 50 possess is unparalleled. Still not convinced? This book will help you toss any remaining self-doubts to the curb!
So, best bets for shopping? One surprise. You don’t need a bridal party and extended family for validation. The first time you shop for a gown, go alone. Fetter out what your really want based on who you are and the venue you have selected for your big day.
Some myths dispelled and advice I loved:
. YES, you can: wear white. Hear that, naysayers. Now, we have permission. But there's a caveat: don't make it a bright which often is less than flattering against most complexions. Opt for a champagne or tea rose shade to enhance your natural radiance.
. Hung up on size? Forget it and find a style that flatters your body.
. Show A little Skin. Being sexy rocks but showing less is more when you are over 50.
. Contour and accentuate your most flattering feature and keep the rest under wraps
. Choose fabrics with suppleness and stretch for the illusion of perfection. YES! Love that.
The book includes the coolest sketches, each designer’s take on a perfect look to celebrate the over 50 bride, meticulously showing details to look for when shopping for the perfect bridal look. . Matching the dress or ensemble to the venue is a must to really make a statement.
Happily, I am gift-wrapping a few copies of this must-read book for a friend and a relative bravely walking down the aisle again. Thanks to the author, encore bride, cover girl and beyond gorgeous at 58?, I know just by reading and perusing it, you'll feel ageless (I know I did) instantly and fully enjoy this magical time.
