American Apparel's 62-year-old lingerie model




If this is what 62 looks like in cheap underwear, imagine how good it looks in the decent stuff.

I am more and more enamoured of long silver hair...

Breaking more ground. And I am enjoying my long graying hair enormously. Haven't yet gotten around to being in magazines in my underwear however:).

I love your comment about decent stuff!

And the most refreshing part is it doesn't look like they overdosed on airbrushing. She still looks real! Amazing.

It's only a matter of time LPC...

American Apparel is CHEAP? I never thought so. The model is beautiful. My granddaughter was doing all kinds of tricks to make a photo of me better with the apps on her new I-phone. So with professional photography one can forget to expect any REAL photos just as REALITY shows the real deal era is behind us.

Wow! what's her secret??

I feel a bit uncomfortable looking at this picture.
Is it her age, is it her looks, is it the lingerie..

It's the lingerie, Mette!

I have mentally airbrushed her into La Perla. A stunning woman, and great for a different age group to be modelling! Bored of teens!! P x

The beaches of Goa were full of 60+ ladies in string bikinis with long white hair, I want to be them when I grow up.
Is American Apparel cheap? I never buy underwear. xxx

I love this trend of using older women models! And since a few people mentioned the long silver hair, I'm wondering if I should grow mine out.

I'm thinking about the long hair too - maybe I'll leave the next visit to hairdresser for a bit

She's beautiful. I didn't know how much American Apparel underwear costs, so I had a look at the website - over £30 for a bra and £15 for knickers isn't my definition of cheap! How much does one have to pay for "decent" stuff then?! xxx

Is that her right nipple poking through the lace, or am I crazy?

mette said...

All my lingerie comes from Lise Charmel, expensive - yes, but lasts like forever.
I still feel a bit uncomfortable looking at the picture.
Maybe the model is wearing too much makeup?

une femme said...

She's really in exceptional shape for any age. But bravo!!

Angele & pastcaring - American Apparel isn't low cost but I meant cheap as in cheap (shoddy) and nasty. Which it is.

I feel a bit conflicted looking at this shot, the woman is in great shape no question about that but i'm still looking at a half naked woman advertising horrible tacky undies for a company with very questionable ethics and extremely exploitative ads. I just feel i'm expected to praise an older woman for passing the still acceptable test even though she's "old"?
