Colour Colour Everywhere: How colourful are you? Do you express yourself in a vibrant way or find that you don’t feel comfortable with wearing strong bright colours and that it might draw too much attention to yourself and you’d rather go through life unnoticed?

It can be easy to succumb to grey, beige and black as everyday essentials and stay safe and hidden.  But is this the real you - not the one that thinks they will be brave enough when they’ve lost those few pounds or when they feel better about themselves after the next promotion or new relationship?
-
-
I notice so much drabness when a bit of colour (or a lot) would lift all our spirits whatever we are facing in our lives. To wear more colour can be like a blossoming of oneself - like a new spring flower full of life and beauty.

Meet the over 60s supermodels: how a “greynaissance” is sweeping through fashion
Daphne Selfe is 89 years old. She is also a supermodel.
BY HILARY MITCHELL
-
-
- 
Daphne Selfe, an 89-year-old supermodel, looks almost impossibly elegant as she glides onto the stage at a fashion event in Edinburgh. She’s tall and slim, with a mane of silver-grey hair piled perfectly on top of her head, and she’s impeccably dressed in a red, crushed-velvet jacket and long leopard-print skirt. She’s at the event to talk about diversity in fashion, and her eyes flash when she’s asked if she thinks people only hire her as a “token” effort to seem politically-correct.
-
-
- “Not at all,” she fires back. “I’ve been modelling since the 1960s, I’m professional. If you do a shoot with me, you’ll be finished very quickly. Photographers say I have more energy than any other model they’ve worked with. I do yoga every day, and I can still do almost anything a younger model can. I’m proud that I’m still working and proud that I’m still considered beautiful. And I’m pleased more older models are finding work than in the past. It’s certainly fun for me.”

Selfe is represented by renowned agency Models One, which has the largest number of classic (over-50s) models in Europe on its books. Manager Uwe Herzstein has been asked about this so-called “greynaissance” many times. He’s a warm, friendly man who jokes on the phone about wishing he still had a six-pack, and acknowledges that customers of both high street brands and fashion houses want to be be represented by fashion models who are closer to their own age.

Handsome, Art & Fashion: I was lucky to be invited to a very glamorous evening in London and guess who was there? My favourite photographer & friend, ‘Man About Town’ the handsome Alistair Guy. It was so funny as I rang to see if we could fit in a quick cup of tea on my way (something we often do) only to find that we were going to the same event! -

Grand Style – These Women Model Inspiration For The Ages! -
-
Grand Style is the title of an article written by my ‘Model Family’ member Wendy Packer for Grand magazine an online magazine for grandparents. Wendy has featured 9 models who are all over sixty years old, who Wendy goes on to say are vibrant, vivacious and still packing a punch of ‘Va Va Va Voom’. I’m honoured that I’m included as one of them – thank you, Wendy!
-
-
In Grand Style, Wendy writes: Today, there are modelling agencies and models the world over featuring models beyond age sixty. Five years ago you could comb the internet for hours and find barely a handful of models over forty. It seems now that ageism is diminishing in the fashion world. Women with grey/silver/white hair are becoming more visible every day.

This Morning TV – This Week
With Daphne Selfe Academy modelling student Jane
-
-
This Morning is a British daytime television programme that is shown on ITV, one of the top UK channels. The show airs live on weekday mornings from 10:30-12:30 covering news, topical items, showbiz, style and beauty.  It’s a show I have modelled on a few times myself over the years (last time June 2004 with Fern Britton & Phillip Schofield) on their fashion feature segment.
