In the modeling industry, 20 is old and 30 is ancient, so where does 61 fit into the game? One woman is changing the way people view age and beauty. She is a supermodel who is still getting tons of work and even bikini modeling jobs at the age of 61.
Yazemeenah Rossi has been a model for most of her life.
She has lived all over the world and loves to travel. She might be older than most working models, but she can wear a swimsuit with the best of them. She has an amazing body and stunning good looks.
Most people would never believe that she is 61 years old.
She recently got asked to be a part of The Dreslyn’s second exclusive collection of swimwear with lingerie brand Land of Women. Dreslyn founder Brooke Taylor Corcia talked about Rossi and the decision to include her in the campaign. Corcia said:
“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.”
Rossi was born in France but has lived all over the world.
She explained that her hair went gray as a young girl. By the time she was in her 20s, she had a complete head of salt-and-pepper hair. A lot of people told her she should dye it, but she never did. She knew that it was special, and she loves it.
As for her perfect skin, she gives credit to a beauty regime that is a little different than what most people use. Still, she said it’s easy enough and works for her. She said:
“There is no big secret. All I have ever done is eat organic food – long before it became trendy. I take oil and use it on my skin. I put grapeseed oil on my hair. I scrub my skin once a week with olive oil and fine sugar, and I eat an avocado a day and organic meat and fish.”
If it makes her skin look that great, we should all be trying it.
It’s clear that Rossi has always taken care of her health and her physical appearance. She has no problem getting older, and while she knows that she may not look her age, she knows she is aging and chooses to embrace it.
“I feel more at peace than I did 10 years ago. I’ve realized that everything around me is a source of teaching. This is aging, and I enjoy it.”
When Corcia was looking for the perfect model for The Dreslyn, she knew that Rossi was the one.
While most models start modeling as teenagers, Rossi was 20 when she booked her first modeling gigs. That didn’t stop her from being at the top of her game, though. She has appeared on dozens of magazine covers and in photos and modeling campaigns for many different designers and projects. According to Corcia, she is the exactly the type of woman that The Dreslyn is designed for. Corcia said:
“The Dreslyn was conceived as a platform to redefine femininity and sensuality on our own terms. Land of Women shares this mission and our collaborative collection of swimwear was designed with simplicity and purity in mind, to emphasize the woman wearing the product. Yazemeenah Rossi embodies the modern, ageless confidence, intelligence, and grace, making her a natural fit for this story, and we are thrilled to have had such an incredible, visceral response to this season’s message.”
Rossi is happy to be able to be the face of redefined femininity.
It is something she is passionate about, and she believes it will help other women feel good in their own bodies. She looks amazing in these photos, and the best part is, she doesn’t plan to retire anytime soon.
