The models range in age from 23 to 73, with Maye being the oldest. The model, author, and practicing dietician looks regal in her black one-shoulder one-piece as she poses with her hand on her hips, her silver hair combed back.
‘I’m so happy to have confidence at 73,’ Maye said in the playful campaign video.
