You may have noticed models are coming in different shapes and sizes now. You may have also heard that some plus-size models are making waves within the fashion industry – certainly a step in the right direction – but have you heard of Baddie Winkle?

The 82-year-old is the talk of the modelling world after landing a campaign with Grit Creative Group. The images, which recreate the famous images of Kate Moss, Kurt Cobain and Michele Lamy, were released on Baddie’s Instagram account and Grit’s website.

Baddie snapped up US label Dimepiece LA’s campaign soon after. Sporting its swimsuits, she portrays timeless female empowerment, for which the brand has always represented.

Why not take a look at the images from Baddie’s Instagram account, which prove that age is nothing but a number, and tell us what you think? Is Baddie Winkle your new favourite model?

    Baddie does not epitomize the age group. I know lots of women who look nicer than her & they don't smoke.

    well said, I'm 71 today so my age might be why I don't consider this a good role model- I am very allergic to cigarette smoke - I just can't breathe when around it
    Please re-consider this dirty habit from being publicized.

    Oh no! Agree with Shirboy- I'm similar age, and would not want to parade myself like that, although I think I am more presentable. The smoke picture particularly revolting. :(

    As an after thought her name could be Baddie Wrinkle. That is what smoking does to the face.

    You really don't want to know.

    Some body bits are best left covered up after a certain age! Less is more!

    At least she looks like she's in charge, enjoying herself despite her looks. A great role model for those who feel afraid of the usual ageist criticism. No one can help getting old and wrinkly!
