Aging happens to everyone, whether we like it or not growing old is inevitable. But that doesn’t mean that our quality of life has to go down! Eating healthy, staying active, and taking care of yourself emotionally and spiritually can help anyone to make their golden years their best years. And when you feel good, you look good too.
Which is why we’re loving these older men who are proving to the world that stereotypes about aging are totally backward. They’re not just models, they’re modeling what it really means to make the most of life no matter what stage you’re in.
Philippe Dumas, Age 60
This gorgeous older gentleman has the whole package! After jumping into the world of modeling, beard first, Philippe Dumas has found a certain amount of fame, racking up his Instagram followers after gaining exposure on Reddit! The Parisian-born man says that “My career as a senior model is young, but it starts well. I have great expectations” (1). Well, Philippe, we look forward to seeing your face in magazines more often!
Anthony Varecchia, Age 53
Where does that muscle come from?! Well, Anthony Varrecchia can certainly tell you it takes a lot of hard work and a healthy lifestyle to look as good as he does at 53! This silver-haired fox who lives in New York certainly deserves to be an internet sensation, check him out on Instagram for more pictures!
Gianluca Vacchi, Age 50
Gianluca is certainly not a sight for sore eyes, and after gracing our screens with some impeccable dance moves, we definitely aren’t ready for him to stop being fabulous anytime soon! This businessman certainly knows how to feel a beat, watch him dance here.
Aiden Brady, Age 50
After smoldering his way into the fashion world not so long ago, Aiden Brady has stacked up quite the Instagram following and doesn’t seem to be slowing down! And if you thought his talents stopped there, think again, this golden oldie has appeared on the big screen! That’s right; he’s a movie star as well.
Eric Rutherford, Age 49
Like good wine, Eric keeps improving with age. This gorgeous fellow is not only a model but also an events organizer in New York AND an editor for At Large magazine. What else can this devilishly handsome man possibly do with his time? Oh, that’s right, woo his Instagram followers with impeccable pictures of his carefully chiseled face of course!
Alessandro Manfredini, Age 48
With his snow-white locks contrasting with his dark, brooding eyes, no wonder Alessandro can’t help but book modeling contracts and photo shoots in a wink of an eye. This Italian Stallion gives incredible beard inspiration as well as amassing a huge Instagram following.
Deshun Wang, Age 80
After taking part in China’s fashion week, Deshun definitely made his modeling debut known! The audience even named him the ‘hottest grandfather in China’! If that isn’t something to have on your bucket list, then I don’t know what is! From movie star to the catwalk king, Deshun certainly knows how to win at life.
Irvin Randle, Age 54
Salt and Pepper has officially been taken to a whole new level. Irvin’s beard would give any young man a run for his money, who would even consider this hunk to be a grandfather? We certainly wouldn’t! Check out how being over the age of 50 isn’t stopping Irvin, in fact, it’s making him even more fashionable!
Ron Jack Foley, Age 50
If Canada wants the world to sit back and take even more notice of them then, I think Ron’s face should be the icon of Toronto. This gorgeous human has hair any supermodel would be jealous of and a family life that would make anybody swoon. Ron is certainly taking 50 shades of gray to the next level- just look at that beard!
Shan Michael Hefley, Age 54
If you’re looking for a bit of body motivation, then look no further! Shan is definitely an absolute legend when it comes to his incredible body transformation. He vowed to eat healthily and work out, becoming one of the most ripped 54-year old’s I’ve ever seen. Check out his story here!
Sometimes, all we need is a little push to remind us that age doesn’t have to be an excuse, and time doesn’t have to be an obstacle. Even if this is the first time in your life you’re seriously considering eating healthy and being fit, go for it! It’s never too late to make the right decision for yourself.
