Age is just a number and young is an attitude—this age-old saying has once again been proved right by the world’s most experienced and gracefully aged fashion model Daphne Selfe, who recently appeared in the new advertisement of fast fashion label TK Maxx.
Going against the tide, which always supports young models in fashion industry, the European version of America’s popular department store chain TJ Maxx chose the octogenarian to front the company’s latest autumn/winter-2013 campaign.
The recently unveiled advertising images feature the 85-year-old lady dressed in a range of chic sophisticated winter clothes, such as a wool coat with oversized buttons paired with a nude shirt and matching satin trousers, as well as a black sweeping outerwear over a sharply tailored black suit. 
Owned by the largest international apparel and home fashion department store chain TJX Companies, Inc., TK Maxx specializes in men’s, women’s and children’s clothing.
Starting her modelling career back in the 1950s, Daphne Selfe has earlier modelled for big renowned labels like Dolce & Gabbana and Vogue.
