I've seen quite a few rant and complaint threads lately, so I thought maybe it was time for another positive one. smile

So, this is a thread for the talented 40+ women out there who are still gorgeous, amazing models-- what I think all of us younger ones aspire to be when a few more years go by.

They generally have a lot of experience, in modeling and in life in general, and most of the best ones I've talked to have also been super cool and helpful to me and others.

So, here's my first contribution:
K E L is one of my favorite models on MM, and she recently made semi-finals for the Wilhemina 40+ Model Search (which is like top 30 in the nation).

Plus, her body is hawt.

There's another really well-known commercial model who I know is 40+, but I realize she's taken her age down, so I'm not sure if she would appreciate being posted here. hmm

Any others to show off?

Wish my girlfriend looked half as good.

Could not figure why so few pictures in your portfolio, until I looked at your start date.
Few pictures bit will not last long. I would shoot with you in a heartbeat, if we were closer.

Oh, and thanks to Kelli for starting an appreciation thread. We need more.

There was a fairly recent issue of Vogue, where the editorial was mature models. Not one under 50. Beautiful images.
