"If you try to imitate too much, then you look like nothing. Never compare yourself. You are you." These are the words of 94-year-old style maven Ilona Royce Smithkin, one of several inspiring women in the film Advanced Style. No Small Plans hosted its Chicago premiere, complete with red carpet photos by Tres Awesome, a Skype Q&A with film creators Ari Seth Coen & Lina Piloplyte, and a reception (with more wine & photos!) to follow.
