A 60-year-old male model, Philippe Dumas based in Paris, has been making sensations on the internet for his style and looks. Dumas realised his dream of becoming a fashion model seven months ago.
“Style is more important than beauty,” Dumas told TODAY Style. “You can have style at any age. The best examples are Iris Apfel and Carmen Dell’Orefice. They are beautiful women to me. If you have style you will have it all life long. Some beautiful models lack this little sparkle that makes the difference.”
According to a report by The Huffington Post, Philippe has been signed on with six agencies since his post and has done various shoots for menswear campaigns. In an interview to Style Aria, he said:
We have to be very careful when getting to an older age, not to be overwhelmed by the transformation happening to the body. (To) my great surprise most of the time they compliment my look and ask for a selfie with me. Finally, I keep thinking that getting older is not such a bad thing.
