n.— «I’ve always detested the expression “mutton dressed as lamb.” It’s misogynist, mean and women are not meat; even Sam Kekovich would concur with that. But there’s a new version of it that describes women who retain hairstyles or wardrobes suited to a different life stage—women such as Melanie Griffith and Faye Dunaway. The term is “1661”—a woman who looks 16 from behind, 61 from the front.» —“When mum is most definitely not the word” by Mia Freedman Sun Herald (Sydney, Australia) Feb. 12, 2006.
