I am 58-years-old.

Writing is my career; modeling has been my side gig since the 1980s. I’m by no means a runway model. I’m only 5’2″ and curvy. However, I continue to do this to show women, that it’s okay to be way over 50 and still look cute (or sexy).

I do not have any plastic surgery or Botox. That is my choice. All my make-up is cruelty free and vegan. My current hair was glazed red last month at a vegan salon.

  • Brilliant! I’m 55, & can’t believe how ‘invisible’ I’ve become in the last 10 years, when I used to be so ‘attractive’… It’s good to see you just being YOU. Don’t stop- I’ve not done botox or anything- maybe ageing is a bit more relaxed here in Australia? All the best, G

    • I’m sure you are still attractive. Perhaps you are too hard on yourself. I’m glad to hear ageing is more relaxed in Australia. I’m currently writing a book, “Fantastic without Plastic” about women over 50 who do not want to use plastic surgery. I’d like it to be an inspiration for all women who do not go that route. You’re very welcome to be in it if you like. Email me and I’ll give you the details: maryannechristiano@gmail.com

      • Thanks Maryanne- oh yes, I’m still very ‘spunky’ as we say here in Oz! Fit, healthy, blessed with a great home & fabulous creative work. Your book idea sounds great, and SO needed- when I read all the fuss about the latest ‘Sex in the City’ series, and how ‘old’ the women look as though it’s a crime, I feel very sad. But well done SJ Parker for pushing back against the criticism hey? She’s good value. Unlike Madonna, who at 63 seems to want her face to look like she’s 23 😦 I will definitely email you, thanks
