In a lavender dress, coat, and matching head piece, she looked absolutely stunning. It wasn’t long before her image was attracting likes, shares and that shocked Facebook reaction all over the internet.

The woman who posted the image initially on Facebook didn’t have much information. She said this woman was the grandmother of her younger cousin’s friend. But Nichelle Gainer, the author and curator of the book Vintage Black Glamour, knows Taylor Morrison personally. In fact, she’s related to her.

She shared a bit of her story on Instagram.

May we all never give up on love and age as gracefully as Ms. Mildred.
