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 already know wearing white after Labor Day is cool. But menswear is reinventing itself rapidly, leaving some long-held mandates by the wayside, not to mention a bunch of men with a lot of questions. Sure, some style laws are truly inviolable. Showing a quarter-inch of cuff will always be crucial, but with designers and dandies flaunting so many former taboos it's hard to tell what's in play these days. So we thought we'd take this opportunity to let you know which rules no longer apply.
