Elegant, Inspiring And Strong 61-Year-Old Model Is Crushing Ageism In Fashion
By Yoon Sann Wong, 21 Apr 2017
Two years ago, model Yazemeenah Rossi was a highly sought-after fashion model, who was fronting major ad campaigns for the likes of Macy’s and AT&T, at the age of 59.
Fast-forward to present day and the 61-year-old graceful, inspiring, white-haired dame is still going strong. In an interview with BuzzFeed News, Rossi shed light on her entry into the fashion world, lifestyle, and “beauty secret”.
Unlike most who begin their modeling careers at a very young age, Rossi only started when she was 28 years old, and got her big break when she moved to New York City at the age of 45.
“For me, age is something that doesn’t exist.”
Watch the interview with this grandmother of two below, and catch the septuagenarian model who stars in Calvin Klein’s celeb-filled campaign.
