Is curiosity the key to eternal youth?
Comments

Current theories suggest that curiosity is actually the true Fountain of Youth. These portraits are entered into evidence.

ISABELLA ROSSELLINI


"The advantage of getting old is finding the courage to do what one likes," says the actress, citing her passion for animals. Rossellini has written a book, My Chickens and I, chronicling life on her Long Island farm, and she is two courses away from a master's degree in animal behavior and conservation.

ALBA CLEMENTE


The costume designer, whose next project is a Karole Armitage work at this summer's Ravello Festival on the Amalfi Coast, is also a lyricist (for Pink Martini) and artist's muse. She has been immortalized by Jean-Michel Basquiat, Alex Katz, Julian Schnabel, and her husband Francesco.

DAYLE HADDON


In 2008 the model founded WomenOne, a nonprofit that works to bring education to millions of girls around the world - and earned her an honor from the United Nations. "Many of them have fought incredible odds to get an education and have a voice," she says. "They inspire me every day to work harder."

JOAN JULIET BUCK


The writer (whose memoir, The Price of Illusion, came out in March) finds fulfillment in living without an agenda. "It took me my whole life to learn that simple works," she says. Simple - but not easy: Next month Buck heads to Ohio's Kenyon College to teach a seminar on self-presentation.

PATTI HANSEN


While she still loves going on tour with her husband, Rolling Stone Keith Richards, the model admits she's also a homebody who enjoys gardening at home in Connecticut. "As time passes we see the truth in what our parents once said, like 'There's not enough time in the day.' Who knew?"
