This Grandmother Wears Runway Makeup Looks Like A Boss

Age is nothing but a number, baby, and this grandmother is the epitome of that. We can’t take our eyes off the images of this woman, who let her photographer granddaughter recreate makeup looks on her from the runways of New York Fashion Week. All we can say is, someone get her a Céline campaign STAT. 
 
Sasha Frolova is the granddaughter behind this genius experiment and spoke to Refinery29 about the project, saying, “I wanted to address the arbitrary yet incredibly specific standards of beauty perpetuated in fashion, so I re-created the six makeup looks from New York Fashion Week on my grandmother and captured them in a 'backstage look,' as well as a large-format editorial image.” 
 
But it wasn’t just the fact that this grandmother rocked the makeup looks like a boss that got us excited, it was the shows that Frolova chose to recreate. She painted her grandmother’s face with looks from prettier shows like Rodarte and 3.1 Phillip Lim, and the weirder looks from Jeremy Scott and, our favorite, Hood by Air. You’ve got to see them!
