Fashion Faces:打破年齡界限!他是60歲的法國新晉模特 Philippe Dumas

常言道,有夢便要趁早追。當年紀愈大,所顧憂的事情也特別多。隨著時間的流逝,夢想與熱誠也慢慢被磨滅,而你也不得不向現實妥協。可是,來自法國的模特新星 Philippe Dumas,卻打破了這個人生定律。

沒有錯,Philippe並非是年輕氣盛的小男生,而是位60歲的新晉模特!擁有深邃的棕色眼睛,加上招牌的鬍子及紋身,相信就是他的專屬標記。在這之前,其實Philippe正打算退休:「I studied law but never practiced and instead worked in the movie business and advertising.」就讀法律系的他,畢業後沒有理所當然地成為律師,反而從事電影及廣告業務近30年。可惜,最終公司逃不過倒閉的命運,令Philippe萌生退休的念頭。

但是,究竟是什麼原因令他轉戰模特兒行業呢?答案就是一張相片。據說,有位不知明人士在分享平台Imgur上載了Philippe的照片,更打上「Retired but not out, giving a last go to my lifelong dream of becoming a model, do I have it in me?」想不到,這個玩笑卻帶來45萬的閱覽人次,而且有模特兒公司對Philippe產生興趣,最終更簽約成功。

It has never been a dream of mine because I never thought I could, and the job I had was truly fulfilling my work expectations.

在過往的日子,Philippe從沒想過自己與模特兒扯上關。身高175厘米,加上滿臉鬍子 ,令他自覺沒有如此的資格。但是,Philippe卻因為鬍子而得到注意:「Fortunately new faces on the modelling market are very welcome and my beard was a plus since it is very trendy in Europe at the moment.」在模特兒界,一向也非常歡迎新臉孔的加入。充滿個人特色的Philippe,成功靠著鬍子來闖出一片天。得知有模特公司對他感興趣時,Philippe也二話不說地答應。

I realized maybe I should try being a model. I started being more careful with the way I dress and understood that maybe I had something.

不論是什麼年齡的人,身為模特兒也必須好好管理自己,當然60歲的Philippe也不例外。為了保持健康體格,他一星期會抽5天時間來做帶氧運動,甚至會舉重及跳芭蕾舞。此外,這個男人十分重視自己的鬍子,更透露每天會為它塗上香油,以保持柔順光澤。難怪他會自豪地說:「Just like a woman pays great attention to her hair, I cherish my beard.」

即使已邁入60大關,也不像其他新晉模特般年輕,但Philippe一點也不尷尬,更說與他們相處融洽。直到這一刻,他發現變老原來不是一件可怕的事。只要長期保持著活力及朝氣,任何年齡的人也可嘗試新東西。

被問到對未來有什麼期望時,Philippe反而希望能享受每一刻。對他來說,模特兒可接觸到許多新奇有趣的事物,更能保持心境年輕:「 I really do not feel 60 in my head. We all have dreams and maybe I will be hired for an international advertising campaign, only God knows.」踏出60歲,卻得到前所未有的轉變。在Philippe的角度,他不覺為時已晚,反而感恩上天給予他一個機會。

也許,你還在抱怨時間不夠,機會不足。在匆匆的人生,何必要為自己定一個限期呢?只要心裡保持著「一團火」,年齡永遠不是阻礙實現的藉口。

We have to be very careful when getting to an older age not to be overwhelmed by the transformation happening to the body. It’s necessary not to give up and keep the same activities and life routine as when younger.
