12 Supermodels That Dauntlessly Proves Ages Are Just Numbers

The model industry is a brutal one. Models are discovered at a super young age - some even as babies - and discarded when they no longer have “the look”. It’s funny since most of these ladies have only turned thirty!
In another look: they got too old for the industry. Modeling isn’t synonymous with longevity. Stories of models who got older and can no longer find work aren’t new. Many even resource plastic surgeries to look younger even.
While this is still mostly true, people are fighting back! More people speak out on the shallowness and ageism of the industry. We are seeing more stunning older supermodels on the covers of magazines now, even on the runways. Barriers are being torn down, y’all!
What, you don’t think older supermodels can pull off modeling? Then take a look at these 12 supermodels who are still killing it even if they are older than the industry.
