Can you guess what the “world’s most beautiful grandmother” looks like?
Yazemeenah Rossi has been on magazine covers all over the world. But in her teens, the French model didn’t start her career, as most models do — she was over 30 when she started.
Yazemeenah already proved that she didn’t have to be youthful to be a model — something she’d continue to show the world over the next 30 years. And, although she has been able to work continuously as a model for all these years, she claims that the model industry still employs mostly young people.
There was a time, some years ago, when I started to think things would gradually begin to change and we’d start to see more older models, but that did not happen. I do believe that men and women have the same concerns about growing old, although men might talk less about it. Nobody likes to see their skin give in to gravity. At the same time, growing old is something beautiful because you become stronger with the passing of time,” Yazemeenah said.
“Age is definitely a state of mind. If you are connected with your inner child, you can recharge your batteries and keep that energy. You need to have a playful, adventurous, curious spirit,” Yazemeenah continued.
The beautiful model also mentioned that there are no real “magic tricks” to keep looking youthful. “I haven’t had any cosmetic surgery so far,” Yazemeenah said. “The idea of going under the knife when I am perfectly healthy doesn’t make much sense to me.”
