61-Year-Old Model Absolutely Rocks Her Swimsuit Campaign

Swimsuit adverts are often highly sexualized, but as you can see from these stunning pictures, they don’t have to be. Nor do they have to feature young models, as Yazemeenah Rossi proves. You wouldn’t believe it to look at her, but the model, visual artist, and self-portrait photographer is in fact 61-years-old.

The photographs below are part of a campaign for a swimsuit collaboration between online shop The Dreslyn and a lingerie house called Land of Women. According to Brooke Taylor Corcia, founder of Dreslyn, the purpose of the collection was to veer away from the hyper-sexualized imagery of existing swimwear lines.

She decided to choose Malibu, California-based Rossi as their model of choice because, as she said to Huffpost, “This is a woman who radiates health and vitality. She’s confident, she’s a visual artist, she takes care of herself. [This line is] all about being a person who’s well-lived and well-traveled and has intelligence and confidence, and letting that shine through.”
