These chic ladies attend Palm Beach, Florida weddings, red carpet events and CEO meetings. Their bodies are not as young as their souls are, but they still conquer us with their classy attitude and beauty. These women were born in a totally different world almost 70 years ago and they still rock it all. I’m talking about women like Charlotte Rampling, Jessica Lange, Catherine Deneuve, Jacky O’Shaughnessy and Marianne Faithfull, who are all involved in different fashion campaigns of famous brands.

Charlotte Rampling is 68 years old and she is now the face of NARS cosmetics. The company is well known for hiring models in their 40’s but 60’s is something new and extremely cool for them. Rampling’s beauty is contagious, it feels strong, but relatable and it somehow guarantees success for the company. Shortly after the NARS news, Marc Jacobs announced that the new face of the Marc Jacobs Beauty will be Jessica Lange. The incredible actress, famous for her role in the American Horror Story is 64 years old and she is the first celebrity face of Marc Jacobs Beauty. Her refinement and talent, are powerful. This is why the idea of making her the face of a great brand is actually one of the best things happening in the fashion world right now.

Marianne Faithfull, the 67-years-old music icon is the new face of Saint Laurent. Catherine Deneuve, the legendary French actress stars amongst Marc Jacobs’ featured in the Spring/Summer 2014 advertising campaign. She selected two Louis Vuitton’s iconic bags for the campaign and did her best in presenting them in their best light.

Another company that adores 60 something ladies is American Apparel. Jacky O’Shaughnessy is 62 years old and she wears lace lingerie and holds one leg up extended over her head in the brand’s ad. American Apparel’s image is always based on the wild spirit of the young generation. The campaign that involves the 62 years old beauty shows us that age is nothing but a number. The spirit can be young and wild, no matter how old its body is. That’s what all these fashionable women are teaching us.

Did you know these ladies were taking over as the faces of such HUGE brands?

    I have noticed that more and more ‘real’ ladies are starting appear that do not look so plastic and fake. It is highly welcomed.

    I haven’t seen the ads, but now I plan to Google them. I love any brand that isn’t focused on a super thin, 16 year old. Stay real ladies!

    They’ve definitely got the right idea. Hopefully other companies follow suit. Those dresses look beautiful.

    I love that they are using older ladies as models! Just because you’re older doesn’t mean you don’t buy clothes!

    This is so cool! Since when did getting older in years become such a bad thing? Happens to the best of us 🙂

    I had no idea that these older ladies were becoming the faces of these brands! This gives me hope after all!

    What a wonderful way to show age is just a number on a piece of paper. Being in your 20s is nice, but there’s way more to life than just being 20. 🙂

    I love ads that show real people that you can see day to day. I think it’s funny when an ad for a different body shape still has models that wear a size 0.. 🙂

    This is awesome! I love designer brands and I loved reading how they are realizing age is only a number!

    I’ve always just said “age is just a number” because it is. Nothing that defines you so why should it really matter?

    Beautiful photo!

    No I didn’t, but they definitely give me hope! Beauty can be at any age, this is great!

    As a person in the beauty industry I LOVE that Nars signed Charlotte Rampling. It’s SO refreshing.

    A motivating discussion is worth comment. I believe
    that you need to publish more on this topic, it may not be a taboo
    matter but usually people do not discuss such subjects.
    To the next! All the best!!
