Spanish designer Juan Duyos seemed to be more inspired by "Golden Girls" than "Gossip Girl" when he cast four models in their 60s to strut his styles down his Madrid Fashion Week catwalk earlier this week.

"I am fed up with seeing 20-year-old models advertise anti-wrinkle creams for women aged 60," he tells London's Metro. "Beauty does not end at 40 or 50."

Duyos, who also describes elderly women as being "just as beautiful as 20-year-olds," used Spanish socialite Eloisa Bercero as one of his models, according to Metro.

"I am moved," she tells the commuter paper. "They have made me feel very important."

And Duyos isn't the only designer to look to seniors as models recently.

British designer Giles Deacon sent 71-year-old legendary German model Veruschka down his runway at London Fashion Week on Sept. 20.

And here's a photographer who prefers to photograph the elderly. Dare we say fashion is having a senior moment?
