- A 68-year-old woman, who is dubbed Britain’s oldest model, has reconsidered her modelling dream
- Suzy Monty recently posed in the same bikini she wore in her 20s and 30s
- Many older women now see Suzy as an inspiration after her beautiful photos went viral
There are some jobs that are time bound and modelling seemed to be one of them until a 68-year-old woman, Suzy Monty, made people reconsider this opinion.
Suzy who used to be a glamour model in her 20s decided to recreate photos she took in a particular green bikini decades back.
Posing for photos is not new to Suzy as her modelling career started after she won a catwalk competition at the age of 10 as well as bikini and swimwear contests in her 20s. Well, over five decades after, the talented woman has proven that she still has it in her.
According to Cornwall Live, Suzy disclosed that there seems to be a big market for mature models and that she has been very busy as a result.
The 68-year-old glamour model also added that she is all natural and she has never had a cosmetic surgery or dyed her hair.
Despite being quite older than a lot of models around, Suzy works with two agencies as and freelances sometimes too.
She initially stopped modelling in her 40s after she was down with glandular fever which took her a year to fully recover. Well, it seems to have been a good move on her part to reconsider modelling after her long absence seeing as a number of older women now consider her an inspiration.
Suzy said: “There’s always good feedback and I’ve had messages from ladies over 50 who have said they feel invisible and thanked me for what I’ve done. I am now an endorsed model for Australian luxury lingerie brand MySecretDrawer and also model fashion for Newquay brand of retro style dresses, Silly Old Sea Dog.”
