Young love is beautiful—but that’s the easy part. What will two people see in each other decades from now when they’re no longer much to look at?
Engaged couple Kristie and Tavis, two such specimens of young love, wanted to look into their future before they tied the knot in a month. Cut Video and Field Day gave them a chance to peek into their marriage’s crystal ball, and in 100 Years of Beauty, the couple is transformed by a team of makeup artists from attractive 20-somethings into 90-year-olds, complete with costumes and prosthetics.
Time traveling through various stages of middle and old age—50, 70 and 90—taught them a few things. Realization No. 1: start wearing sunscreen now. Realization No. 2: love goggles don’t wear off when the wrinkles set in.
“You look fantastic,” Tavis tells Kristie when she reaches age 90 in a pink nightgown. “You don’t look a day over 75.”
