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?
