When it comes to fashion, is age really just a number? We’ve all heard of age-appropriate dressing, which conjures up images of sweet young things in hot pants facing off against mature ladies in granny outfits and orthopedic shoes. But with today’s modern woman taking better care of herself, and staying fit, fresh, and active well into her 40s, 50s, 60s, and beyond, the lines about what looks good on whom are quickly becoming blurred.
Take the fashion walkoff staged by Olay on Wednesday, April 13, to launch the Olay Age Defying Body Bar. Brand ambassadors Daphne Oseña-Paez, Miriam Quiambao, and Angel Aquino joined famous faces (and bodies) from the Professional Models Association of the Philippines (PMAP) in strutting their stuff on the catwalk dressed in summer’s hottest—and skin-baring—outfits.
The show was hosted by Issa Litton and Marc Nelson, whose friendly banter focused on the body parts that tend to inadvertently reveal one’s age: the neck and décolletage, the arms, and—most visible of all—the legs. Thus the fashion show selections from Trucco, Warehouse, Dorothy Perkins, and Topshop, were outfits that highlighted these areas. Veteran models Marina Benipayo, Joey Mead, Abbygale Arenas, and Patty Betita were among the ladies who showed—and how!—that they can still look hot in shorts and revealing tops.
Throughout the show, Issa Litton challenged Marc Nelson—and the audience—to try to tell the models’ ages just by looking. You can make your own guesses too! Check out our gallery for pics of the event, and weigh in on how old you think the models look at the end.
