American Apparel, they're always game for a bit of boundary pushing aren't they? Whether that's adding pubes to their mannequins, coming under fire for pervy (aka porny) advertising, or using a 62-year-old for their latest lingerie campaign. And that's exactly what they've just done to push their new collection.

Who says you can't wear lingerie at 62? And who says you can't promote lingerie at 62? Not American Apparel. The controversial fashion house has employed one hot and very flexible 62-year-old model, Jacky O'Shaughnessy to front their latest promotional shots.

Clad in nothing more than see-through lace, a bandeau bra and a slick of red lipstick, Jacky proves American Apparel is pretty much the only thing to be seen in, no matter what your age. ​

The campaign shots show Jacky flexing her legs and sprawling on the floor of a whiter than white warehouse somewhere. The shots are accompanied by the tag line, "Sexy has no expiration date" - and not surprisingly has had a ton of likes on Facebook and Instagram.

Jacky has already been involved with previous American Apparel campaigns, in fact she first put her face on the brand in 2012 when she starred in shots for their 'Advanced Basics' campaign but in those pics she was fully clothed. This time she lets it all hang out and shows off her banging body - giving Christie Brinkley a run for her money.
