Though its website is borderline porn that sexualizes child models, American Apparel has taken an impressive step in challenging conventional beauty norms by featuring 62-year-old model Jackie O’Shaughnessy in lingerie.

As Fashionista notes, though O’Shaughnessy is no stranger to the clothing retailer, this is the first time she's appeared in lingerie for the site.
