Who says that you have to be in your early 20s in order to become a fashion icon and look better on the catwalk and in real life?
Well, definitely not those who know beautiful fashion model Yasmina Rossi (real name Yazemeenah Rossi). She had a really interesting career since she started modelling more than 30 years ago – and we’re going to talk about that, as well as check out more photos of Yasmina below.
But I guess you already have a few hints regarding her age… because, yes, she’s not your regular, early 20s model and fashion icon!
Indeed, the beautiful model is, at the moment of writing this article, 63 years old. Wow! At this age, most ladies are spending their entire days on the couch, eating candy and grooming their cats, but not this particular one!
She still has a dream body and looks like a person who almost didn’t age at all. It is always amazing and specifically inspirational to see somebody look that good at that age!
And what I like most about her is the fact that she’s not trying to hide her age. Many people do and fail miserably.
Instead, she embraces it and has no problem showing her gray hair or those natural wrinkles. This makes her even more of a (role) model in my opinion, teaching us all an important lesson: if you take care of that body, if you take care of your health and ultimately yourself, you’re going to be beautiful when you age and there will be no reason for you to try and hide that.
It’s a breath of fresh air in a world where plus sized models seem to be a bit anorexic, for example… (yes,I am exaggerating a bit, but still…)
Now, back to today’s spotlight character, let me tell you that Yasmina Rossi had a really interesting career too: she started modeling when many models are hanging out the high heels: during her late 20s, but it wasn’t until she moved to New York that she had her big breakthrough.
And she was already 45 when that happened! She was immediately cast in ad campaigns for Macy’s, AT&T, and Mastercard. Eventually, she landed a job modelling for Marks & Spencers in Europe.
Yasmina, a grandmother of two, says that she has always lived a healthy life: she only ate organic food – before it was a trend – but never overdid it with exercising.
She also tried to stay away from medicine and opted instead for homeopathy when it was needed. She eats an avocado a day and uses oil to keep her skin healthy and beautiful: rapeseed oil on her hair and scrubs her body with an olive oil/sugar mixture.
Her most recent achievement – in a career that has so many – is being chosen as the new ambassador of the leading French skin care brand Diadermine.

It’s pretty obvious to me that if we take care of ourselves, if we live a healthy life and we take stress out of it, we’re going to have an amazing time, age well and look good no matter what our real age is.
And she does prove that beauty at an old age is not a myth – but highly achievable. So let’s do it! Thank you, Yasmina, for being an inspiration for everybody!
