86-Year-Old Baddie Winkle Is An Instagram Star
If you think Instagram is just for teens and self-obsessed celebrities, meet 86-year-old Baddie Winkle, the latest sensation on the pictorial social media site.
Baddie Winkle, a lovely looking grey-haired woman from Kentucky, has a sweet smile and judging from her pictures, a wicked sense of humor — and a whopping 744,000 Instagram followers.
In March, she posted pictures of herself, styled to look like iconic images of Kurt Cobain, Kate Moss and startlingly, Michele Lamy, a woman who only the most die-hard fashionista would know. Lamy, with her goth priestess look, is the wife and business partner of cultish designer Rick Owens.
This month, Baddie Winkle posted pictures from her latest adventure. She is the star of DimePiece’s latest ad campaign. Did we mention that DimePiece, based in LA, is a fashion forward street wear label, that counts Nicki Minaj, Rihanna and Katy Perry as fans? That’s right, the clothing is not exactly pastel twin-sets.
