“Grandma” ain’t what it used to be. We found Shoshana Halpern post-lunch date with her grandson David, age 4, and her stepdaughter, Yael. “I’ve been trying to figure out how we could break my grandson into modeling,” says Shoshana.
He’s not the only model we see….
Name: Shoshana Halpern
Age: Over 50
What do you do? I was formerly in market research.
Where do you live? I live in New York for three months in the summer and in Florida for the rest of the year. I say that I always need to live near major shopping areas. Here, in New York, I live near Bergdorf Goodman. In Florida, I live near the Bal Harbour mall.
What is your passion project? I love shopping. It’s my oxygen. In Bal Harbor I have a group of girlfriends I go with.
What colors do you wear? Gold is my favorite color. I also wear corals, tan, camel, black and white. You will never see me wearing burgundy.
Does your style change from Florida to New York? I wear more metallics in Florida, and I would never wear a leopard dress here in New York.
How would you describe your style? Not conservative. Not edgy. I’d say, classic.
