THE SEXAGENARIAN SUPER MODEL!

Sunday, January 22nd, 2017

Maye Musk, 68, may be one of the most in-demand models for New York Fashion Week next month.  The glamma grandma, registered dietician nutritionist, and mother of billionaire, Elon Musk, has been working in fashion for more than fifty years; however, it was not until she started letting her hair go gray that she found true success.  “When I was approaching 60, I got sick of being blonde, so I decided to stop coloring my hair. I grew out the gray and I cut it short. People said, ‘You’ll never work again with short gray hair,’ but it came out white and everybody loved it,” she shared with Harper’s Bazaar.  “I got a billboard in Times Square for Target and a billboard in Madison Square Garden for Verizon and my career took off. I started getting a lot of high fashion work then, too,” she continued.  The brand ambassador for Atelier Swarovski has signed with top modeling agency, IMG, worked for beauty brands, Clinique and Revlon, shot spreads for Elle and Italian Vogue, and has even appeared in a Beyoncé video.  “Looking back, letting my hair go natural was an amazing decision because I started getting major ad campaigns. I also signed with agencies in Europe and travelled to many different cities, which I loved. People would stop me in the street and say they loved my hair.”  Musk has become the poster girl of the Greynaissance movement, which has emerged from  a new generation of fashion and beauty consumers  who respond better to products advertised by women their own age.

ASHLEY GRAHAM: NO MORE LABELS!

Ashley Graham
Ashley Graham is teaching us a very important lesson:  not to label people.  The 28-year-old model has often been referred to as “plus-sized,” but she is currently starring H&M Studio’s  (the company’s prestige line) Fall 2016 campaign — one which is not “body positive” or relegated to H&M Plus Size.
Speaking with Harper’s Bazaar, the Sports Illustrated cover girl shares, “It’s exciting to be representing one of the most internationally known fashion retailers that is not only offering more options for curvy women, but pieces that have a high fashion aesthetic.”  Graham acknowledges that she now sees more “inclusivity” in fashion, as it relates to size and diversity.  “My hope is that young women who shop at H&M see me in the ads and are reminded that there is not one standard definition of beauty or one perfect size,” she adds.

MELANIA’S DREAM GETS TRUMPED!

Wednesday, January 6th, 2016
Melania Say what you want about her husband, but Slovenian-born, Melania Trump, has chosen to stay out of the spotlight … that is, until now.  The former model and businesswoman, 45, appears in a glamorous spread in the pages of February’s Harper’s Bazaar.  While she doesn’t always agree with her husband’s proclamations, she is 100% supportive of his run for the presidency.  “He is not politically correct, and he tells the truth,” she explains.  “Everything is not roses and flowers and perfect, because it is not. He wants America to be great again, and he can do that.”Mrs. Trump, who arrived in the United States in 1996 on a work visa, became a citizen in 2006.  She approached the naturalization process very seriously. “I came here for my career, and I did so well, I moved here,” she said in the interview, adding, “It never crossed my mind to stay here without papers. You follow the rules.”
