Lanvin Casts 62-Year-Old Tziporah Salamon in Their Fall 2012 Campaign

Now that has released the full Lanvin campaign, I am excited to reveal the fact that 62 year old Tziporah Salamon is one of the stars of this ground breaking ad. Tziporah is a well known personal stylist, fashion consultant, and performance artist living in New York. A favorite of Bill Cunningham’s and one  of the stars of my book and upcoming documentary, this is Tziporah’s first appearance in a major fashion ad campaign. I asked Tziporah how it feels to be recognized by a major fashion label and she told me,” I am totally honored, jazzed, and thrilled. I am so grateful for this opportunity. In my early 20s I would have never realized that I could do something like this. It wasn’t until I was in my 40s that I began to see my beauty. By then I felt that there weren’t many opportunities for older models.  How ironic is it that i am having my big break as a model in my 60s? This is a great day!”

Bravo to Lanvin for recognizing advanced beauty in this wonderful campaign!!!
