Models over 50 arebeing hired for more fashion showsthan ever before. What better way to celebrate that step toward greater representation than by casting two of the most iconic women on earth?
Jane FondaandHelen Mirrenstarred in L’Oreal’s show during Paris Fashion Weekon Sunday. They literally stopped traffic as they walked a runway smack in the middle of Paris’ Champs-Elysses, alongside younger models including Liya Kebede and Winnie Harlow.
The event marked the first time L’Oreal has put on a fashion/beauty show, and the two iconic actresses walked in their roles as spokeswomen for the brand. Mirren joined L’Oreal as a U.K. ambassador in 2014, and Fonda has also been working with the brand since 2014, according toPeople.
It wasn’t their mere involvement that stole the show. Mirren swung a cane in a pair ofon-trend gray plaid pantswhile Fonda gave peace signs in a tiger print dress.
