Nina talks with Stephanie O'dell

After 10 years of fashion styling with Athleta and Stitch Fix, Stephanie O'Dell began a blog called Celebrate The Gray. After speaking with1000's of women aged 50+, she realized the visuals and stories women are given as they age are messages of anti-aging vs pro-aging. She knew something had to change and that the age models advertisers were using needed to be updated. Stephanie founded Celebrate The Gray, a full service agency for and about the 50+ woman, she represents over 45 gray haired models and works with companies to use real faces and authentic stories of positive aging. She is passionate about updating the face of aging for the 50+ woman and showing her the possibilities of positive aging. Working with brands like Athleta, Kikoko, Gennev, Revel, Rinvoq. Stephanie has been a speaker at the San Francisco Commonwealth Club, Gennev, YWCA, Rotary, interviewed on numerous podcasts (The Rant, Brand Fifty, Mean Magazine, Badass Women) and featured in local and national press (AARP “DIsrupt Aging”, California Live). Stephanie hosts a bi-monthy speaking series “How She Revels” for Revel and is a featured podcast contributor for Brand Fifty, She lives in Northern California with her husband and has a son and daughter who now view age with a different lens.
