51-Year Old Runway Model

You need to check this out. And when you are through with the photograph here, check out the link below to the Wall Street Journal.
Fifties is the new thirties?
I think there was some tv commercial a few years ago that tried to make that claim. Then again, if they used Ms. de la Fressange as the spokes person.....

Quote " Ms. de la Fressange in the 1980s was the first model to sign an exclusive modeling contract with a haute couture fashion house — Chanel — and then went on to represent France’s symbol of femininity, Marianne. " End Quote.
By the way, Ms. de la Fressange is wearing a creation by Jean Paul Gaultier for his Spring/Summer 2009 haute couture collection. Don't worry - I haven't gone Gay or anything like that. I saw the photograph of Ms. de la Fressange and (under my breath since I was at work at the time) said "Wow!" Now hoepfully, you too can say that aloud as well!
