Idolized Aging

The marks of age become badges of honor to wear with pride

Implications - No longer a battled plague, but a form of beauty, aging is receiving more positive attention from society as photographers and ad agencies seek out older models to revere and admire. Age admiration points to a shift in consumer attitude: aging is something to look forward to, and not something against which one must battle.
