Advanced Style: When Seniors Slay the Runway

Age is just a number for these queens of the catwalk.

They say with age comes wisdom, but could it also come with style, grace, and modeling gigs? Within the last few years, older models have been making appearances on runways around the world, and the trend seems to be growing. According to a report from theFashionSpot , there were four times as many models over the age of 50 who walked in Fall 2017 shows in New York, London, Paris, and Milan than there were in Spring 2016. Here, a look at some of the timeless beauties who are changing the game and proving that age is just a number.
