The 60-Year-Old Bearded Fashion Model

by ChinaBambi

Just before he turned 60, Philippe Dumas decided to grow a beard, and this simple decision has changed his life completely.

For the fun of it I decided to grow my beard thinking it would be a mess, but people said they liked it,” said Dumas to Bored Panda. “This happened many times and so I realized maybe I should try being a model.” Just like that he got in touch with some agencies and the rest is history.

I really love what I am doing and get great pleasure from doing it. What else could I ask for? Maybe to work for a huge international campaign like Chanel or Dior. We all have dreams. And this buzz could help. Who knows.” Who said it’s too late to try out something new.
