Ju­dith Maria Bradley

The sep­tu­a­ge­nar­ian In­sta­gram sen­sa­tion and fash­ion model who won’t be type­cast

Toronto Life - - Navigator -

At age 69, af­ter a long ca­reer as a nurs­ing home man­ager, Ju­dith Maria Bradley de­cided to be­come a model. She be­gan an In­sta­gram ac­count, where she has amassed thou­sands of fol­low­ers drawn to her freespir­ited fash­ion sense and an in­de­scrib­able aura of posh­ness. “Style is com­pli­cated—it’s in ev­ery­thing you do, from the way you hold your fork to the way you shake your leg,” she says. Her look has evolved over seven decades (she’s 72 now), and she pretty much wears what­ever she wants, wher­ever she wants. She once at­tended a Blue Jays game in a red, floor-length evening gown, prompt­ing a woman sit­ting in the row ahead to turn around and ask why on earth she was wear­ing such a thing. “Dar­ling,” she said. “It’s be­cause it makes me happy.”
