When Silvina left her decades-long career in marketing, she never anticipated that by her mid-50s, she’d be a model, life coach and one of the main faces of the #greyhairrevolution movement online.

We love — Silvina’s look and her commitment to helping women be the best version of themselves. She does so in a way that is nurturing, joyful and empowering.


Silvina tells us how she stays passionate and motivated every day.

What do you think is the key to success?  

Knowing yourself and being authentic to your true self.

What do you love about this stage of your life?

I wouldn’t have been a model 40 years ago because of my hair and my skin. 20 years ago, I wouldn’t have been cast because I wasn’t young enough, slim enough or tall enough.

But now, diversity is what the fashion industry wants and I am exactly that! Ironically, it is my age, my curly grey hair and my heritage that make me successful.

What motivates you?

It is not selfish to start prioritising yourself and your desires. For some women that means opening a craft shop or starting a book club. For others, it means travelling the world or renovating their dream house. For me, it was finding fashion and modelling. Sometimes all a woman needs is a little push to realise what she is capable of.
