We're not quite sure why it surprises the Daily Mail that people get older, but it does seem to think that it is worthy of comment. Today, the paper sneers at Kim Wilde for not coming up to their exacting standards:
Apart from being gratuitously unpleasant, it's not even true: Kim carries her age with as much grace as she carried her youth; you can even tell that in the side-by-side photos the paper has helpfully captioned:
What the caption doesn't point out is that the 'today' shot is a snatched long-lens shot while she was out shopping without make-up and the 1983 picture is a studio portrait with, we suspect, a spot of post-production run over it.
Kim Wilde deserves a bit more respect, Daily Mail.
