American Apparel’s New Lingerie Model Is A Spunky 62-Year-Old

We have previously featured some inspiring lingerie ads, and it looks like American Apparel is tackling the issue of ageism with its new lingerie model, Jacky O’Shaughnessy.

A New York City native, O’Shaughnessy’s image is gaining popularity on the company’s Facebook and Instagram accounts. It is accompanied with the tagline, “Sexy has no expiration date.”

This is not the first time O’Shaughnessy has modelled for American apparel, however—in 2012 she modeled for the brand’s ‘Advanced Basics’ ads.

The spunky 62-year-old has also stated that she finds modelling creative and engaging, and hopes to revive her acting career.

What do you think—will this move pave the way for older models in the future?
