Ramona Singer: I’m 58 and look fab in my Maxi dress!

Ramona Singer: I’m 58 and look fab in my Maxi dress!

This week, Patrick Couderc, the managing director of Hervé Léger in London, insisted that women of a certain age, as well as lesbians, shouldn’t wear his company’s curve-hugging creations. “What you’re not noticing is that your cleavage is about 2 inches too low because you are 55 and it’s time that you should not display everything like you’re 23,”

I was strolling through Soho 22 years ago with my then-boyfriend when I fell in love with the most gorgeous dress I’d ever seen.

It was an Hervé Léger.

This was before the French fashion house became commercialized. It was under the radar, and all I knew was that this was the sexiest dress I’ve ever slipped — or rather squeezed — into.
