Vogue isn’t eminent for championing prime in their silken pages.
In fact, the immeasurable infancy of their editorials and ads still seem to centre around prepubescent-looking twiglets.
But conform is changing and in new times, it has become increasingly age-friendly.
Vanessa Redgrave (79) was the face of Gucci’s journey 17 campaign. Baddie Winkle (88) became Urban Decay’s monthly troubadour back in December.
And yesterday, 58-year-old Lou Kenny totally owned the Vogue Australia catwalk at the Virgin Austalia Melbourne Fashion Festival (VAMFF).
Grey hair don’t caring 💁🏻(sorry no emoji to compare that pose) Massive 👏🏼 to @vamff for following in the footsteps of overwhelming Melbourne labels like @tomenyc by including a different operation of ages and nationalities on the runway. More of women like Lou please! #vamff

Lou is apparently one of Australia’s many in-demand models and yesterday she walked to rapturous applause, in what conform forms are apparently job ‘advanced style’.
‘With the casting manager, we put utterly a few options forward. We put Lou Kenny [forward] to represent an older demographic on the runway,’ the festival’s executive writer Geraldine Frater-Wyeth told the Sydney Morning Herald.
‘It was really good perceived by the stylist and the magazine.’
Lou also starred in the VMAFF opening weekend shows progressing this month – nonetheless they captivated smaller crowds.
Proof that the change dress/t-shirt combo is agelessly chic.
