Marjorie 'Bo' Gilbert is the 100-year-old model who is gracing the pages of Vogue this May, and she makes growing old look absolutely fabulous. In a photo shoot that British department store Harvey Nichols created specifically for Vogue's 100th anniversary, Gilbert dons Valentino glasses, a Dries Van Noten hot pink coat, and a whole lot of timeless beauty. Take that, Kendell Jenner.

Iconic photographer Phil Poynter shot these images of the centenarian for the commemorative issue honoring the taste-making magazine's 100th anniversary. 

Gilbert also is chock-full of inspirational quotes that can only come from a century of wisdom, like this gem: "I dress to suit myself. I certainly don't dress up for boys." If that isn't inspiration to get off the couch and put some pants on, what is?
