60-year-old finally becomes gorgeous fashion model

A 60-year-old man, named Philippe Dumas, has just proven that anything is possible, as he just actualized his dreams of becoming a fashion model and a gorgeous one at that.

Philippe Dumas is finally a fashion model

It all started about seven months ago, when Dumas, from Paris, France, asked Reddit users if possessed the skills to star in front of the camera, saying, “Retired but not out, giving a last go to my lifelong dream of becoming a model, do I have it in me?”, attached with photos.

His inquiry proved successful, as he has since signed with six modelling and talent agencies, and has featured in a number of photoshoots including menswear campaigns and an advert for Joop! Homme.

Dumas was formerly a location and unit manager in the French film industry. In an interview with Style Aria, he explained that younger models on set were in awe of his beard and tattoos, which he started acquiring when he was 37.

“At my great surprise most of the time they compliment my look and ask for a selfie with me. Finally I keep thinking that getting older is not such a bad thing”, he said.
