Who says you have to be young to be a model? And a lingerie model at that?

Stunning Jacky O’Shaughnessy is 62 and American Apparel’s latest lingerie model, looking incredible in a strapless bra and lace knickers in the new ad.

“Sexy has no expiration date,” is the motto for the campaign, and we’re shouting bravo!


O’Shaughnessy is a regular model for the label’s Advanced Basics range, and judging by the overwhelmingly positive reaction to this campaign, expect to see a lot more of her (in a lot less).

And can we just talk about her hair? Amazing.

American Apparel are known for their controversial campaigns (case in point: their Valentine’s Day mannequins sporting full pubic hair) so even if we’re a little cynical at their intent, we can only applaud the result. More real-life models, please!
