To check ELLE’s 30th commemoration, we gathered 35 of the world’s most refined 30-year-old ladies for an epic, bicoastal generation. You can see the full exhibition here.

This. Is. 30. Demonstrate to us your 30 on Instagram by hashtagging a photo #Thisis30.?
Give me a thought of how you were, at 29, reasoning around 30?
I was so energized and I keep on excited to age. Because, well, as a person, I think its a perception that allows you to have a more satisfied life, and as an on-screen actress, I believe it’s incredible when you’re excessively old, making it impossible to play idiotic.
That was literally my first question: “How as a woman did you think about 30, and how that contrasts (or does that vary?) from how you thought about it as an actress?”
I looked at all your notes.
Do you believe it’s satisfied all that you’d thought?
I find that the greater part of the ladies that I truly turn upward to, both ladies I know and ladies I do not know but respect from far off, are in their forties. So now, my thirties appear like this awesome chance to add to the experience and knowledge that will permit me to have a much more prominent decade in my forties. Thirties feel like a fruitful ground. The twenties are for fucking up, that is what should do, and your thirties are for utilizing the information you picked up from said fucking up to make something, to put that experience toward something valuable. And afterward I think your forties are a chance to appreciate what you’ve worked for.
