“Don’t fight your age,” proclaims Italian prima ballerina Alessandra Ferri. What makes her words even more remarkable is that the 53 year-old is the new face of Boots’ No 7 Lift & Luminate Triple Action Serum. Clearly, endorsements do not come in the way of being upfront for her. “When a brand says, ‘If you use this product, your wrinkles are going to disappear in two weeks,’ first of all, it’s not true,” she tells website “And second of all, you’re promoting an idea that there is something wrong with having a wrinkle. And why? Why are we promoting that beauty is wrinkle-less?” Good question. “I’ve never been afraid to show who I am,” adds the star, who returned to the stage in triumph in Romeo & Juliet (see pic) last year after a nine-year hiatus. “There is beauty in every age and every face and every body. And unless we stop rejecting the fact that the passing of age is part of life, we will be unhappy. It’s fine to have a wrinkle; it’s fine to be 50. There is beauty and there is energy and there is life and there is love in every age.” Standing ovation.
