81-year-old model hired for couture collection
Distinguished model shows that you don’t have to be young to be beautiful.
The age-old tale that a model’s career is over by the time she reaches her twenties is, well, old news these days. Introducing Jennie Rhodes, a silver-haired model who is making waves at the impressive age of 81.
Living beauty: Ageless Beauty
According to the Daily Mail, Rhodes is the new “it girl” when it comes to the world of older models, and her resume shows it. The striking beauty has been hired to be the face of a new campaign for fashion label VIELMA. In the campaign, Rhodes shows off a strong collection called ‘Beautiful End of the World.’ Designer Gabriel Vielma says Rhodes, a former Hollywood actress, was the perfect choice for such a campaign as opposed to a younger model. “There are different beauties in this world. Not only the young posses this quality. A flower possesses beauty as does fashion. My looks are strong and dynamic and the model I chose is both,” says the designer. “Her presence tells a story and this is inline with my collection. The clothes sit just as well on this woman as they would on a 17 year old.”

You can rent a couture dress or a designer bag, but would you rent hair extensions?
To get the scoop on quick office party beauty tricks, we turned to Landy Dean, celebrity makeup artist at Marie Robinson salon. His simple tutorial requires only a handful of products, starting with the darkest, inkiest eyeliner you can find. Dean swears by the Nars Larger Than Life liners smudged over the waterline and lashline, topped off with a few coats of Maybelline The Falsies mascara. Before you dash off to apply product, there’s one small step that involves removing makeup. “If your foundation and concealer have caked or creased, I recommend a quick removal with a cleansing towelette and a redo to avoid heavy looking skin,” he cautions. For those who would prefer to go the easy route, apply a hydrating moisturizer using a stippling motion and a sponge. Finish the look with a dusting of BareMinerals Mineral Veil—“this will even out discolorations and give a reflective finish that still looks natural”—swap your work bag for a chic clutch, and get ready to ring in the season.
