Submit Now! Be on the cover of Cameron Diaz’s The Longevity Book

Hello Ladies!

Happy Fall! Hope everyone is enjoying this glorious time of year; the chillier air, the changing and falling leaves; all of the markers of another year coming to a close, and a hint at the new one about to unfold.

Cameron Diaz, The Longevity Book

I first wanted to thank all of you who answered our call this past summer to send in any questions you might have about aging in a female body.  I am so grateful for your participation, as it allowed us to address your inquries in the next volume of the Body Book. It is centered around the mental, physical and emotional journey of aging. And as we diligently put the finishing touches on the book, we’d like to ask for your help once more. This book is for you and about you and that’s why we’d like to see you on the cover. Much like the cover of the Body Book, under the jacket, were we featured women of all different shapes, sizes, builds and ethnicities.

We would like for you to feel represented again, this time to show where you are in your process of aging. So we invite you to take a picture of yourself. It should look much like the one I have here; against a plain background, this general framing-you can crop closer to a portrait, and the higher-def the better! We’d like to see more of that beautiful face of yours than the body this time. And if you want to snap one with yourself and your mom and your daughter together, or any multiple generations or expressions of your journey with aging, we’d love to see those, too! And for the 50 we use on the actual cover, we’ll send you a signed copy of the book when it hits bookstores in April. So be yourself with it, be brave with it, have fun with it, and we can’t wait to see.  Thank you again and Happy Selfie-ing!!

Ox, Cameron

  • Joanna

    Can I send two if I can’t choose

  • Allison Berthel

    I assumed the selfie should be taken without makeup but now that I read back through the instructions it doesn’t explicitly say that. Is that the case or does it not matter if we have makeup on or not?

  • Soussan


  • Roberta Parmegiani Hennelly

    Is it too late to submit?

    • thebodybook

      Hi Roberta, yes the deadline has already passed. But we would still love to see your selfie on instagram. 🙂

  • Crystal Clark

    photo submit. I am 51 and own an indie vegan cosmetics bath and body company:)

    hi there:)
    I felt that this was a very appropriate thing for me to do since our whole mission is to provide high quality vegan cosmetics that all women can afford! since I am 51 ( will be 52 this year)…I thought it was most appropriate that I submit myself. I am sure everyone thinks some gorgeous young thing owns my company! people visual of beauty is quite distorted:)
