Gloria Rogers is proud of her appearance and her age -- "74-and-a-half, and no facelifts," she says. So one recent morning, she put on some fashionable clothes and walked to Pittsburgh's Point State Park to participate in a national search for models over the age of 50.
"I'm a ham from way back," she says. Ms. Rogers was the first of several Pittsburgh seniors to take part in the "Faces of 50+ Real People Model Search." At stake was a chance to be chosen to model for future editions of AARP: The Magazine.
Just click Gloria Roger's picture above to see and hear some of those aspiring models tell their own stories, too.
