The women that richard admires
Joanna Lumley (67)
"She started as a model but she really has her own style. You recognise her and not just her clothes. I think she looks good no matter what she wears. She is 5ft 10ins, which does help."Liza Minnelli (67)
"Apart from loving her as a performer, I always thought she had style from when I saw her in 'Cabaret' and wearing sleek Halston which is an American label that has been revitalised."Grace Coddington (72)
"For me, Grace was the model of the 1960s, far better than Jean Shrimpton. She is now creative director of American 'Vogue' and she has a wonderful style and is always very original."Anjelica Huston (62)
"Anjelica is another over-50s woman who has great personal style and an individual look. I remember first being impressed with her when I saw her with Pat Cleveland who was a big model in the US in the 70s. Sharon Donnelly (52)
"Sharon has been my muse for many years and, apart from the Richard Lewis clothes she wears, I think she dresses beautifully. It's all very subtle, very understated and you see Sharon first, not her clothes."
