Age Ain’t Nothin’ But a Number

OMG, who is that glamourous OAP?

Earlier this week, Spanish designer Juan Duyos cast  several models who are in their 60s to parade his latest designs down the catwalk at Madrid Fashion Week.

“I am fed up with seeing 20-year-old models advertise anti-wrinkle creams for women aged 60,” Duyos told London’s Metro newspaper. “Beauty does not end at 40 or 50.”

British designer Giles Deacon also had a senior moment at his London Fashion Week show, where he made use of the talent and experience of the 71-year-old veteran super model, Veruschka.

We also love Ari Seth Cohen’s blog Advanced Style, which is like The Sartorialist for seniors.

Could this all be pointing toward a new trend in the fashion world?  What are your thoughts?
