American Apparel’s Newest Model is 60 Years Old
Clothing brand American Apparel is known for their hot, young models showing off tight spandex ensembles, but this week, they shocked all of us when the switched up their usual ads for something totally different.
The brand threw us all for a loop when they revealed the latest face of their “advanced basics line,” 60-year-old Jacky O’Shaughnessy. With her long, grey hair, she’s not what you would expect a typical American Apparel model to look like, based on their past ad campaigns, which is actually quite refreshing.
According to Fashionista.com, she was discovered by the clothing brand on the street in NYC after recently moving back to the city—and this campaign marks her foray into the modeling world (yep, it’s her first modeling job).
Tell us: Are you surprised American Apparel is using a 60 year old in their campaign?

How to Age Like a Supermodel
Totally happy you a using a 60 year old models.There are still some of us who dont want to go out looking like teen wanabes, I am forever searching for designs that look hip with some class tossed in. We want to be looked upon as chic and modern, not too old to be wearing our daughters clothes. Keep up the good work!!!
It's about time they make room for the older generation. They need to put a hot guy in there with her though to balance it out.
Usually we see it old, fat, pregnant guys everyday on movies, adds, commercials. Most of the time with a very young sexy girl.... my 9 years old daughter asked me many times why so much ugly guys and a lot of pretty girls? why not?!! This lady is pretty and sexy! They just missed the young sexy and hot guy by her side!!!
beauty tips and style advice
Sunglasses: it may seem counterintuitive to invest in a wintertime accessory traditionally viewed as a sunny, warm-weather item. But spring is on the way and we’re also currently being exposed to crazy amounts of UV rays—and then, of course, there’s the reflective snow situation.
Some people look younger than they are, some look older. Even those with easy access to BOTOX and personal trainers. Can you guess the age of these celebrities?
Did anyone else hear wedding bells on the Oscars red carpet last night?
Then after the show, er, Oscars, it's the after party. Then after the party, it's the... Best Dressed List, of course. Nikki already picked her tops for the Academy Awards red carpet (did you vote yet?), so now it's time to see what the stars wore to the post-celebrations.
As I continue my personal campaign to swap out E!'s mani cam with a back-of-updo cam (and as a service to all the hardworking hairstylists who spent so much time creating beautiful hair looks for the 2014 Oscars), I'd like to point out that we miss a lot of gorgeous detail when we don't get the back view of a star's hair.

Trying new hairstyles is fun (have you picked up Allure Hair: The Ultimate How-To Hair Guide yet?).
When someone says “Julia Roberts,” you think teeth. You think hair. But while you may not immediately think fashion, she has had a pretty consistent—and consistently pretty—style since her Mystic Pizza days: clean, classic, menswear-inspired looks that let her natural beauty—and rightly famous smile—take center stage. Here’s how she has elevated that look over the years.

We’re at the tail end of a jam-packed awards season, with the grand finale—the Oscars, duh—just a few days away. We can’t wait to see what our favorite nominees wear—we already know Jennifer Lawrence will step out in a breathtaking Dior, while we hope to see Lupita Nyong’o pick another brilliantly bold monochromatic gown. As for which designer she’ll select—Gucci? Ralph Lauren?—that’s anyone’s guess.
