Those who defy expectations about aging have my utmost respect.
It thrills my heart whenever I hear about an elderly person who is doing something traditionally associated with much younger people, such as mountain climbing, biking, or playing computer games.
From first glance, you might not be surprised to learn that this woman has been referred to as “the world’s most beautiful grandmother” for years.
Yet she also exemplifies the idea that youth and attractiveness are not mutually exclusive.
Yazemeenah Rossi has graced the covers of periodicals all around the world since she was born on Corsica, France, on December 21, 1955.
She has also maintained a career as an actor over the years, making appearances in films including Timeless Beauty, Relevator, and The Grasslands.
The French model and actress didn’t start her profession when she was a teenager as most models do; she was almost 30 when she got her start.
Unveils secret of her beauty
Already at that early stage in her career, Yazemeenah was disproving the stereotype that models must be young.
”I was a mother of two kids at 20, working from home, making clothes, knitting, interior design for friends and private clients. I knew since teen that I would never work in an office or stay at the same place through all my life, so even at the time when raising my children I was very active and independent,” she said in 2020.
Despite her long career in the modeling profession, she claims that youth is still at a premium in the field.
“There was a time, some years ago, when I started to think things would gradually begin to change and we’d start to see more older models, but that did not happen. I do believe that men and women have the same concerns about growing old, although men might talk less about it. Nobody likes to see their skin give in to gravity. At the same time, growing old is something beautiful because you become stronger with the passing of time,” Yazemeenah told Vice.
“Age is definitely a state of mind. If you are connected with your inner child, you can recharge your batteries and keep that energy. You need to have a playful, adventurous, curious spirit,” she says, adding there are no real “magic tricks” to keep you looking youthful.
“I haven’t had any cosmetic surgery so far. The idea of going under the knife when I am perfectly healthy doesn’t make much sense to me.”
Yasmina Rossi, the timeless beauty, has been lauded for her acceptance and celebration of her natural appearance throughout the years.
“I take oil and use it on my skin. I put rapeseed oil on my hair. I scrub my skin once a week with olive oil and fine sugar, and I eat an avocado a day and organic meat and fish,” she told The Potion Tree.
Yazemeenah will turn 68 in December of 2023.
But she isn’t going to be slowing down as she told The Daily Mail, “I will model until the end of my life,” and added “But it’s not about modeling, it’s about witnessing, witnessing beauty, energy makes us alive…”
This lady is truly inspiring!
