American Apparel's Newest Lingerie Model Is A 62-Year-Old Woman (Photos)
Models and (prescription) bottles?
American Apparel, no newbie to pushing the boundaries and upping the shock value of its advertisements, has made another bold move in another scantily-clad print campaign featuring Jacky O'Shaughnessy, a 62-year-old New York native, as the unconventional face of its colorful and lacy lingerie collection.
In the image, which was posted on American Apparel's social media accounts on Thursday and has since garnered thousands of likes, O'Shaughnessy is posing on the floor in a see-through bandeau and (ironic?) granny panties.
The photo was accompanied by the tagline, "Sexy has no expiration date."
That might be true, but using individuals' bodies — whether super sexual or slightly wrinkly — as ploy to get attention is kind of, you know, getting old.
Grandma, you are fly, but American Apparel, I still hate you.
