Model, 71, swerves hair dye or surgery and still rocks bikinis she wore in 20s

A mature model is living proof that age is just a number.

Suzy Monty, 71, still rocks bikinis she wore when she was in her 20s.

She’s so comfortable in front of the camera because she’s been modelling since she was 10.

The Cornish lass, from Truro, won a catwalk competition when she was in primary school – and decades on, she remains posing for pictures and glamming up for shoots.

Suzy said: "I'm still loving posing in a bikini and modelling.

"I've still got the green bikini from 40 odd years ago – I don't tend to get rid of anything.

Suzy has stayed looking youthful due to her healthy lifestyle – and has swerved plastic surgery and hair dye.

She said: "People don't believe that my hair is mine, but it is real.

"I've never had it dyed and it's still thick and dark and goes all the way down to my waist.

"I keep fit by doing lots of walking and love to cook and bake.

"I don't feel old, I still feel like I'm 21."

Suzy, who overcame a tumour diagnosis in her 60s, continues to live life to the full.

She said: "Luckily it was benign but I'm just grateful to still be on this planet…

"I still love to do it but I'm a bit pickier with who I work with.

"I'm not afraid to pose in my bikini still. I'm still a size 10 and keeping fit.

"I used to do shoots for four to five times a week but now do them sporadically.

"I love doing fashion shoots."

Suzy juggles her time modelling, focusing on wellness and writing a book.

She said: "I've taken writing up more since the pandemic and am just finishing my first novel.

"I mediate every day and feel blessed to still have my dark long hair and figure.

"Me and my husband, John, 74, are celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary next year and he's always been a massive support."
