Forget the saying dress like your age and meet 87-year-old grandma Baddie Winkle who is turning the idea of Nanna on its head with her trend-setting fashion looks.
Baddie Winkle lives up to her name and isn’t afraid to flaunt her skin. With an extensive wardrobe that would rival any fashionista (think fluorescent colours, diamantes, sequins and statement jewellery pieces) and a total disregard for the age stated on her driver’s licence, 87-year old Wilkie has amassed over 2 million followers on Instagram – a number that is set to climb thanks to her famous, much-younger friends.
With her tag line ‘stealing your man since 1928’ Winkle is nothing short of controversial. Her glam looks, which range from bad gal vibes, to 80’s party princess, to gothic cheque, Winkle is never snapped without fab nails and makeup to match.
We have rounded up some of Baddie Winkle’s best makeup looks. Instead of beige-brigade, age-appropriate makeup, Winkle opts for fuchsia pink and even black lipstick, and shops at Sephora, a makeup department that is more used to seeing girls a quarter of her age through their doors.
From being followed by Rihanna on Twitter, to hanging out with her famous friends Khloe Kardashian, Kylie Jenner and Nicole Richie, and taking fashion advice from Miley Cyrus, Baddie Winkle is challenging the traditional view of how someone her age should dress and act.
The American internet personality dresses without boundaries, which has even been recognised by Swedish duo Dada Life where she appeared on stage for their DJ set.
To add to her superstar friends list, she has been a guest at MTV Movie Awards and the 2nd annual Beautycon Festival where she was invited to the NYX VIP Lounge.
Baddie Winkle’s beauty habits may not be text book but she provides plenty of inspiration for the over 70’s bracket. Think out-there makeup has its age limit? Winkle suggests you think again.
