Ageists Retreat! Kim Basinger Signs a Modeling Contract at 60 Years Old

Today we read some news that made us smile: 60-year-old Kim Basinger has just signed a modeling contract with IMG. And funnily enough, it's the same agency that employs her 18-year-old daughter (and mini-me, if you ask us), Ireland Baldwin.

Basinger graced scores of magazine covers as a model in the '70s, but she gave it up to pursue a career in acting. While we love her onscreen in roles in Batman, L.A. Confidential, and this month's Grudge Match, we're so excited to see her return to the world of print ads and editorials. The modeling world has never been kind to women upwards of 40—can you name one model in her 50s?—so we're over the moon about this development.

What do you think of Basinger's move back to modeling? Let us know the comments.
