Smart Sensuality: Modern, Influential Women Are Ageless, Alluring & Sexy

Share Article

Today's 'It' woman is no California girl. She's smart, sensual, sensible, sexy, often over 40, confident and captivating. Her beauty and style express an inner focus on substantive issues relevant to everyday lives. Like First Lady Michelle Obama, today's 'It' woman often stands by her man, in efficient yet romantic partnerships that inspire us.

She's a Smart Sensuality woman.

Michelle Obama, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, Queen Rania and Melinda Gates, four Smart Sensuality women, appear together on the cover of March 2009 Vogue, signifying real change for women's fashion and lifestyle news. The Vogue cover comes as no surprise to design trends and women's lifestyle expert L Anne Enke, editor of two content-rich websites Anne of Carversville and her new Michelle-Style

Enke's websites assume that intelligence, sensuality, fitness and an international, caring perspective are the essence of today's 'It' women.

"Michelle Obama combines brains, beauty, natural elegance and a beautiful body with deep-seeded concerns about children, family and friends, public service and an effective use of her position as an American role model. Michelle rocks because she's a fully-integrated, smart woman with a sexy attitude!" Anne explains. "She's a Smart Sensuality woman."

The former Victoria's Secret Fashion Director, sexy branding and design consultant, and trend-tracker of American women's lifestyles continues: "Today's Smart Sensuality women are not escapists; nor are they conformists. They're informed, independent, caring, worldly women with style.

Smart Sensuality women are ageless, with significant numbers of young women embracing the trend. Forging an international dialogue with young women is a key element in Enke's Internet strategy.

Readers who value Anne of Carversville's saucy but serious analysis of global design and culture trends, sexy cooking recipes, tips on growing erotic flowers, and dating younger men enjoy its two-fold focus: the art of living a sensual lifestyle and embracing the vitality of sexy, aging women.

Spending so much time in Europe changed Enke's views about aging and the importance of sensuality in our lives. "I lived the reality confirmed in 'Dove's Campaign for Real Beauty'," Anne says with a smile.

"There's a 20-year chasm between American women and French, Italian and Brazilian women about 'The Age of Ideal Beauty', the age at which society and popular culture believe women are most attractive and desirable. I want American women to embrace a new paradigm of sexuality, beauty and aging."

Anne of Carversville is passionate about its Smart Sensuality initiative, with weekly articles on women who embody ageless, alluring qualities, personalities like Inès de la Fressange, Donna Karan and Kate Winslet.

"American women believe it's all down hill after 30, and the sexy women of France, Italy and don't agree. There's a reason why these women spend much more money on lingerie and have better sex lives. They continue to love the woman in the mirror."

When asked if she is a Smart Sensuality woman, Anne replies with a smile: "Let's just say that it takes one to know one." And about dating younger men? "Personally, I value discretion in our tell-all culture. It helps keep the mystery alive."

Her evolution from a small-town, Minnesota girl to a global businesswoman fuels much of Enke's writing. The content of Anne of Carversville, and now Michelle-Style, defines her vision of the well-lived life: connected internationally, caring about the future, concerned about beauty and style, healthy, adventurous, and savoring sensuality with every breath we take.
