This might just be the campaign that launches a thousand Harold and Maude dalliances.
62-year-old Jacky O’Shaughnessy is the star of American Apparel’s new campaign, and appears in the image, which debuted on Instagram, clad only in a lace bandeau bra and skivvies. The caption for the photo reads, “Sexy has no expiration date. Jacky in Floral Lace Lingerie. Depending on what’s to your liking, you may or may not be disappointed by the lack of pubic hair.
Though she isn’t a professional model, O’Shaughnessy was scouted in New York and has appeared clothed in a 2012 American Apparel campaign.
While most of the feedback is positive, because the internet is what it is, there are some nasty and ignorant comments concerning the model’s body and age. To them we say, let’s see how you stack up to O’Shaughnessy when you’re pushing 60.
