With the average age of newbie models falling somewhere in the teens and a dearth of barely legal bloggers, stylists and editors, fashion can be a little youth obsessed. How often do you open up the pages of your favorite glossy and see a mature face staring back at you? Definitely not often enough.
On Friday V‘s ‘Who Cares About Age’ Issue hits newsstands and it offers up a refreshing mix of notable beauties old enough to have a little life experience under their Prada belts. From modeling legends like Carmen dell’Orefice and China Machado, to heavy hitters like photographer Martine Malle and Visionaire’s Cecilia Dean, all photographed looking edgy, sexy and glamorous – just like we’d expect from V. Take a look at this exclusive preview of images from the issue and tell us why you think we don’t see enough images of older women and men in magazines. (Check out VMagazine, out now)
