If you somehow believe that you’re too old, too fat, too flabby or too whatever to wear a bikini, here’s a counterpoint to that faulty thinking: the 86-year-old Duchess of Alba is not only unafraid to wear a two-piece in public, she freakin rocks it. And she proves once and for all that there’s no such thing as a bikini body. Thank you.
Cayetana Fitz-James Stuart, the Duchess of Alba was photographed on the beach in Formentera, Spain donning a bright and colorful two-piece–while holding hands with her 61-year-old husband (you go, girl!).
This is not the first time the duchess has made headlines for her eccentric taste in fashion. She reportedly has a thing for the latest styles, and the fact that she’s 86 years old and unafraid to wear what she damn well pleases, makes her a hero in our hearts.
So for anyone who chooses to believe all those stupid tabloids and ladymags that tell us bikinis are only made for certain bodies that are young, thin and flawless, just think of the duchess next time you are heading to the beach, the pool or the grocery store (hey, it gets hot in the bakery). Pull out that bikini and rock it proudly!
