Sixty two-year-old supermodel Marie Helvin is still going strong as a lingerie model - almost half a century after starting her career age 16.

The iconic model, who shot to fame in the 1970s after marrying photographer David Bailey, revealed she stays in shape by hitting the gym four times a week.

But despite looking amazing, Helvin has said that it might be time for her to retire - meaning this recent shoot for lingerie brand Aliza Reger may be her last.

Whatever Helvin's decision, she's part of the increasing list of older women from Joni Mitchell to Joan Didion who prove that style has no age limit and we salute her for it.
