Kudos to American Apparel

Beauty at any age

I love this article about Jackie O’Shaughnessy, American Apparel’s lingerie model.

First things, I love American Apparel clothes, and that they are committed to domestic manufacturing. So this new look in lingerie modeling is a plus for me.

Jackie is a beautiful woman and she is 62!! Yes, you read it right, 62!!

I think that is AWESOME!!!!

Hollywood and the Media always show us young and “kept-young” women as our standards, but in the real world there is aging and grey hair, there are body changes after children and there are scars and stretch marks. And there is BEAUTY!!!

So I say Kudos to American Apparel! And thank you to Jackie! And to all other women out there, who feel that they may not look as good as they once did, or who feel ‘less than’ just because they are over 50, to you I say…You ARE beautiful!!! Every single part of you! You may not be on a big screen or in a Magazine, but people do see you every day and though you may not think it of yourself, they know and say that you ARE beautiful!

So do something nice for yourself today. Look in the mirror with the same awe that you look at the ladies on TV. You are just as good and maybe even better. Say to the lady in the mirror…hey, you know what? you really ARE beautiful!

And SMILE!!!

O’Shaughnessy’s has appeared in the company’s ads before, though never in lingerie, reports Alyssa Vingan at Fashionista.
