“People always ask how I look the way I do at my age. It’s a question of spirit. It’s not just a question of what I eat or what I put on my skin. It’s about how you think.” – Yazemeenah Rossi
I was going to write this post on Ageism and how the new wave of “inclusivity” and the return of the original Super Models to the runways is shaking up fashion, but it just didn’t flow. Yes, Rhianna’s Savage x Fenty NYFW 2018 show gathered a lot of attention for all the right reasons, and L’Oréal Paris have just announced 51-year-old singer Celine Dion as their new spokeswoman, it’s not the first-time brands have used someone considered more mature than the fashionable ideal for campaigns, I’m sure it won’t be the last. All the ladies featured in this post are sought after for editorials and brand campaigns.
