American Apparel's new underwear model is 62 years old

Sexy has no expiration date.

AMERICAN APPAREL’S NEW underwear model has only been in the fashion game for three years, and already she’s working on a top lingerie campaign.

Jacky O’Shaughnessy was scouted by American Apparel in a restaurant in New York in 2011 and she soon began working with them, modelling their Advanced Basics range.

Now though, she’s their latest poster girl for their underwear range, with the tagline “sexy has no expiration date”.

The use of O’Shaughnessy as a model had been widely praised, with commenters engaging on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook:

So gorgeous!! She exudes such amazing confidence.
I want to see more models like her! Amazing!
As a 48 year old woman who is working hard to embrace all of the changes in my body in the midst of a culture which tends to prefer the much younger and taut, I am thrilled and encouraged to see a ‘real’ woman, an example of beauty and strength for women of all ages.
