Advertisements often boast sexy young women to market their product, but the truth is, all humans at any age and any size are beautiful. Society can often forget the stunning beauty of older women in particular, and one model is looking to change the way people see older women.
Yazemeenah Rossi is a 61-year-old model who is the new face of a swimsuit line that is a collaborative work between online shop The Dreslyn and a lingerie house called Land of Women. With a major focus on eliminating hyper-sexuality in swimwear advertisements, they looked to Rossi because of her grace and elegance.
On the choice to cast Rossi, Brooke Taylor Corcia, founder of Dreslyn told Huffington Post that “this is a woman who radiates health and vitality. She’s confident, she’s a visual artist, she takes care of herself. [This line is] all about being a person who’s well-lived and well-traveled and has intelligence and confidence, and letting that shine through.”
The stunning Malibu-based model was born in France and raise in Corsica, and claims that her health is owed to her eating habits and beauty regimen.
“There is no big secret,” she told the Sunday Times. “All I have ever done is eat organic food – long before it became trendy.”
She continues to note that she also uses oil for her skin and puts rapeseed oil in her hair. She also uses a sugar scrub that blends sugar with olive oil and eats avocado every day, along with organic meat and fish.
Her healthy eating habits are an inspiration for all that re looking to be healthy as they age, and the beautiful model proves that age is nothing but a number! Young or old, we can all learn an important message in this campaign- everyone is beautiful.
