A lingerie model at 62
The new face of American Apparel's lingerie line, Jacky O'Shaughnessy, presents a compelling case for women not to cover up once they hit a 'certain age'.
The silver-haired stunner is 62 and wears a bandeau bra and nowhere-near-granny lace panties in a portrait posted to the brand's Facebook and Instagram. The caption? "Sexy has no expiration date."
You may recognise O'Shaughnessy and her gorgeous long white locks from previous American Apparel ad campaigns. When the six-foot-tall actress was chosen as an 'advanced' model in 2012, American Apparel posted on its Facebook:
"There was something so compelling about Jacky's look and energy when we first spotted her in a New York restaurant this winter, we introduced ourselves and pulled up a chair. During a long discussion that touched on everything from career choices and nutrition to insights on relationships, age and beauty, we asked if she would consider being photographed by us."
OK, so we can probably group this image in the same category of American Apparel publicity stunts as the merkin mannequins and other very NSFW moments, but that's not to dismiss it entirely. O'Shaughnessy looks a whole lot of smokin' and anything that pits fashion against ageism, we can get behind.
