At an age when most models are saying goodbye to their careers, Yazemeenah Rossi’s was just starting hers. She was 28-years-old when she decided she wanted to be a model, and 45 when she got her first big break.
She’s currently 61-years-old and is the face of a new swimwear campaign for the new collaboration between online store The Dreslyn, in Los Angeles and Land of Women, the New York-based lingerie brand.
Yazemeenah lives in a guesthouse on the ocean and has plans to continue modeling until the end of time. She’s also said that she will never dye her hair, no matter how much her agents beg.
She started to go grey at a very young age, and she embraced it immediately, which is why she has no desire of changing it for anyone. ‘I’ve had to fight with agents, I didn’t want to dye my hair, it went white quite young. It started the first one around ten to 12 and at 20 I was pepper and salt, it was very beautiful,’ she told the Daily Mail.
She’s also against retouching pictures. ‘I don't like to retouch my pictures. WIth iPhone it’s very easy but it amazes me to see how many apps there are on the iPhone to retouch, it blows my mind, this is not in my world,' she said.
And if there’s one thing she likes about being part of the modeling industry, it's the lifestyle that comes with it. ‘Every morning I wake up, I have no agenda, I’m happy, even shooting, it’s a game for me, it's playing for me. It’s not about me, my ego was satisfied a long time ago,’ she told the Daily Mail.
What’s most shocking about her appearance is the lack of wrinkles on her face. And contrary to what people think, there’s not a moisturiser or regimented cleansing routine behind her wrinkle-free face.
