Older Models Find Success After Youth

In our youth-obsessed culture, as women get older they start to lose value. Enter the era of the older model.

Women well past 40 are gaining speed in the modeling world. Some are former models returning as the Baby Boomer generation demands more representation of their demographic, others never stopped working.

I’m featuring four here, but there are many, many more out there. All are proudly silver haired and eschew¬†coloring it.

First up is Daphne Selfe, a British model known as “the world’s oldest supermodel.”¬†In an article from the Huffington Post, 85 year old Selfe can be seen in a video for a TK Maxx (UK version of TJ Maxx) strutting her stuff alongside her much younger counterparts.
