U.S. Vogue's August "Ageless" Issue

Wow, it was so great of Vogue to choose Kate Moss as it's covergirl for their anual "Ageless" issue. After all, nothing says beauty, grace and agelessness like a supermodel coke whore who leaves the "hired help" to raise her daughter while she shags fugly ass drug addict rock musicians and is known for making heroine chic hot. At least Vogue had the common decency to give me little Zhang Ziyi to make up for the Moss.
The 20s
Ziyi Zhang, 29, Actress

"I'm actually very traditional. I want to have kids, and I will one day, hopefully soon. But I won't give up what I'm doing now. My mom was 30 when she had her first child, but I'm going to be 30 next year"-she laughs-"and that's too soon."

The 30s
Kate Moss, 34, Supermodel

"I am still acting like a seventeen-year-old," admits Moss. "I definitely haven't become middle-aged. I've got a house and a daughter and all that, but I still like to have fun. Even in my business we still have fun."
The 40s
Sloan Barnett, 41, Eco-Warrior

"At 40, I'm busy-very busy-but happy," Barnett says. "In my 20s I was trying to figure out who I was. In my 30s I was making babies, and now I think I'm so lucky."
The 50's
Chris Evert, 53, Tennis Champion

"I've always been a private person, and I didn't want the whole world to see who I was," says Evert of growing up in the public eye. "Also, I didn't know yet. When you're young and haven't completely developed your character, being thrust into that position is hard."
The 60s
Mia Farrow, 63, Actress Turned Activist

"Where do you take your risks?" she asks. "You're going to live as long as you're destined to live; you can take huge risks and huge losses. I figure the worst that happens to me is I'll end up without any money and in an old-folks' home or in a gutter somewhere, and that's OK, too. What would really distress me is if I couldn't connect with another human being."
The 70s
Diahann Carroll, 73, Actress

"All the women who came along in show business who were black or Latino, we all knew that we were stepping into this abyss; we were creating something that the industry hadn't explored."
The 80s
Betty Fussell, 81, Food Writer and Memoirist

"To be old and single? No, it's not bad, it's great. There's a way to cook when you're alone that gives you total pleasure and spontaneity. Each meal is one of a kind."
The 90s
Roberta McCain, 96, Mother of Presidential Candidate John McCain

"Honey, I've had a dream life, and it was all luck," she says. "I'm glad my mother's not around because I still don't plan ahead or think things out." She laughs. "Mother told me once, 'If the gardener asked you to go to Chinatown with him, you'd go.' And I thought, Well, of course I would."
