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.”

Three summers ago, I bought a pair of soft, white-calfskin Chanel loafers. I spent months trying to keep them pristine, but it wasn’t long before a July thunderstorm left them and me soaked. I began steeling myself for what I thought was inevitable: a solemn drop in the trash. But once the loafers dried, I found the shoes’ stained stitching—now storm-cloud gray—was lovely and a few new wrinkles in the leather were charming, like smile lines for shoes. I started to wear them freely—taking on puddles and tossing them onto the sand at the beach—and before long, they transformed. The roughened toe-tops reminded me of a welcoming, worn armchair, and a wet-and-hot summer had molded the material perfectly to my feet.
