A glorious gran has made fashion history by becoming the oldest model to feature in Vogue Magazine.

Bo Gilbert, from Birmingham, was chosen to mark Vogue’s 100th anniversary in a brand new Harvey Nichols’ SS16 campaign. The 100-year-old woman was scouted by a casting agent in the local paper. Bo, who STILL never leaves the house without her heels and makeup, was picked for her unwavering commitment to fashion. 

‘I do things that I think a lot of people wouldn’t do at my age,’ Bo says. ‘I always like to keep myself looking quite decent, even if I wasn’t going out. I try to keep the standards up.’. 

Bo was shot by renowned fashion photographer Phil Poynter, who has worked for brands like Prada, Louis Vuitton and Lacoste. A video from the shoot shows Bo wearing Valentino glasses, a hot pink coat from Dries Van Noten and Celine flats.

Watch the video below to catch her gorgeous reaction to the final images…
