Cindy Joseph, Supermodel. She began modeling at age 49 after a successful career as a makeup artist. Featured in Oprah, Glamour, and Marie Claire among others, Joseph has modeled for clients that include Garner, Olay, Anthropologie, and J. Crew.
"The way I look at it is that for as long as we’ve been alive, boomers have reinvented every decade we’ve lived through. What we’re doing is unprecedented, and it has been at every decade. We have never followed the status quo, and now we’re in our 50s and 60s and continuing to reinvent our lives."
"Be your own judge, and don’t take what the world believes personally. The modeling, fashion and beauty industries have opened up tremendously or I would never be modeling. And it still has a way to go. When all body types and demographics are represented in the fashion industry then we’ll know things have truly changed. So give it a go, follow your dream and if the doors close don’t take it personally. Society is slow moving - it takes time."
