The fashion industry may idolize youth, but for 75-year-old model Jean Woods, age ain't nothing but a number! Jean dresses how she please without feeling obligated to tone it down or "dress her age." Fearlessly, Jean rocks her Doc Martens and trendy Hoxton haircut with a wardrobe cool enough to turn Cara Delevingne green with envy.
Jean and fellow fashion rebels -- 85-year-old Daphne Selfe (the world's oldest model), Gillian Lynne (age 87), Bridget Sojourner (age 75), Jean Barker-Baroness Trumpington (age 91) and Sue Kreitzman (age 73) -- are featured in a new documentary on BBC called 'Fabulous Fashionistas.'
These six ladies are fashion pioneers and UK's best-dressed seniors! Gillian Lynne claims, "I will wear mini-skirts at the age of 87. My legs are my best asset." Jean dresses like a teenager and shops at her favourite stores Urban Outfitters and Topshop without the intention of appearing younger, but simply because she likes the styles.
Good thing these fierce ladies never got the memo, because they look absolutely fabulous in their youthful duds!
