Brief excerpt from cover story by Rob Haskell:

Ross describes the character of Bow as a “lean-back woman”: someone who does not have to jump into every minor drama in her household, instead allowing things to unfold as they will, her feelings about them always inscribed on her emotive face. Ross notes that Bow’s unpanicky deliberateness parallels her own in midlife. But unlike her character, she is not married and has no children. These are facts for which she is held to account almost daily. “It’s sort of fascinating to be 45 and single and childless,” she says. “Happily single, I should add. Not at home crying about it” — which she pantomimes with an outsize pout and the blotting of imaginary tears. “These are very big and very personal questions that aren’t anyone’s business but that somehow, like the right to choose, become fodder for public conversation. Some of the ability to reflect on what I really want comes from pushing up against a society that shames me for not having the expected trappings. I’m very pleased with my existence these days. Have I had to learn to make friends with loneliness? Yes. I think if I were in a relationship, it would be the same.”

The glamour I learned from my mother is easy, no-pressure glamour, she explains. And there’s a lot of joy in that. As her own fame has grown, though, Ross has taken pains to make sure her fans appreciate the effort behind the image, as her Instagram feed, with its mix of magazine covers and makeup-less Monday-morning shots, makes clear.
