Move over Gigi and Kendall. Make way for 100-year-old Bo Gilbert. The silver-haired centenarian will be the first model of her age to grace the pages of British Vogue as part of an upcoming issue to celebrate the magazine’s centennial.
Rocking designer duds (those glasses are Valentino!), Gilbert also posed for photos to run as ads for upscale British department store, Harvey Nichols.
Gilbert, who was born in 1916, has lived through decades of evolving fashion trends.
Gilbert said she’s always made a point of dressing well daily and maintaining a certain “standard.” But here’s her best advice to all the fashionistas out there: “I dress to suit myself. I certainly don’t dress up for boys!”
Harvey Nichols says she was chosen because she “epitomises timeless style.”
“We’re really proud to be involved in a project which proves the older generation can be fearlessly stylish too,” a spokesman for Harvey Nichols‘ ad agency said. “Ageism is so last century.”
