One man is singlehandedly defying the stereotypes of the fashion industry after strutting onto the runway at 80-years-old.
The fashion game can be brutal and more competitive than the olympics! Major designers tend to focus on “youth” more than talent. Wang Deshun, a Chinese actor and artist, doesn’t care to hear those stats. The 80-year-old grandfather is setting his own standards for beauty.
Wang Deshun is simply refusing to age! The handsome male model is proof that there’s style (not to mention talent) no matter how old a person is!
He credits fitness as a huge part of that philosophy. The man reportedly hits the gym three hours a day…and it definitely shows. The proof is in the pudding…or in this case, his 6-pack abs.
Deshun’s runway debut at 80-years-old quickly earned him a reputation as China’s “hottest grandpa.” The man attributes his success to a peaceful and determined thought process.
“It’s about your state of mind. It’s not about age,” he explains. “Nature determines age, but you determine your state of mind.”
Keep it up Wang Deshun! We’re routing for you!
