“Everyone calls me Mamma Murphy,” she says. “It’s been my nickname forever.” When asked who are her American heroes, she says, “The people who are the backbone of this country. People like my parents, who are in the military, or farmers and teachers. I’m very passionate and hypervigilant about supporting our workers, blue-collar especially, because I think they’re so overlooked.” Carolyn Murphy discusses her passions and her next big project in the latest issue of InStyle. And as for her outlook on aging? "Dance on the table or have a shot of whiskey—do things that make you feel alive and happy and young.” Carolyn wears the #AltuzarraFW17 'Ballad' Sweater.
