59-Year-Old Grandmother Still Going Strong As A Fashion Model

In their late 20s, most women aren’t considering modelling careers, let alone at 59. But not only is 59-year-old grandmother Yasmina Rossi a fashion model, she’s a successful one too, working with numerous famous international brands like Marks & Spencer, Hermes and Macy’s.She was born in France in 1955 and was raised on the island of Corsica.

Naturally, everyone wants to know how she’s maintained her relatively youthful looks and good health. “There is no big secret,” she told the Sunday Times’ Style magazine. “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 rapeseed oil on my hair. I scrub my skin once a week with olive oil and fine sugar. I eat an avocado a day and organic meat and fish.”

In addition to her successful modeling career, Rossi is also a photographer and an advanced ceramist. Check out her website to see more of her work!

She is stunning! If her hair wasn't gray you could easily say she is in her 40's.

It's amazing to me on how much research is out there on eating organic foods, cooking for yourself, avocados, etc. will keep you looking amazing and living a 1/3rd longer, yet people still don't do it. The biggest 'shake my head' scenario in the world.

Yasmina takes my breath away, for her natural beauty, sensuality, authenticity and peace. Not only models, but women everywhere can learn so much from her alluring body and contemplative spirit. One day with her would be take me to a place I have never been. She is not only beauty incarnate, but a gifted photographer who can see what so many miss. She is "shock and awe" as the phrase was meant to communicate.

I'm sorry, but she has either had cosmetic surgery or those pictures are ridiculously photoshopped. 59 year olds do not have wrinkle free skin.
