Yazemeenah Rossi is just the kind of lady at 61 that can steal your boyfriend easily. This grandmother of two only got her modelling break at 45, but has now been featured in photo shoots and collections of a wide array of designers and agencies. Most recently, she appeared in a swimsuit shoot collaboration between online store The Dreslyn and Land of Women line of clothing. They just can get enough of her youthful looks and vigor.

Her secret? Well, it's all about living healthy! "I never eat processed, frozen, microwaved or low-fat foods," she said in an online interview. "Most of the time, I eat organic food and cook it fresh every day. I eat mostly vegetables, fruits, nuts and some good-quality fish and meat. I always lived a more or less healthy lifestyle. Year after year I’ve refined my awareness of what’s good for me and what’s not. But happiness is what makes you glow, not just the healthy food you put in your body."
