SUZY Monty is still rocking her slim frame and long dark brown hair and even still dons a green bikini she first posed in in her 20s.
Since kicking off her modelling career when she won a catwalk competition aged 10, Suzy has appeared in dozens of calendars and magazines and still loves posing for the camera.
She puts her youthful looks down to her healthy lifestyle and insists she has never had any surgery or dyed her hair.
Suzy, from Truro, Cornwall, said: "I'm still loving posing in a bikini and modelling.
"I've still got the green bikini from 40 odd years ago – I don't tend to get rid of anything.
"People don't believe that my hair is mine, but it is real.
I’m plus-size – trolls call me a ‘whale’ but I won’t stop showing my curves
I’m a size 10 & recreated popular model looks from Pinterest that looked fab
"I've never had it dyed and it's still thick and dark and goes all the way down to my waist.
"I keep fit by doing lots of walking and love to cook and bake.
"I don't feel old, I still feel like I'm 21."
Suzy has been modelling for the past 50 years but now steps in front of the camera less often – opting to only work with people she trusts.

In her 20s, Suzy won Miss Cornwall Bikini and Miss Cornwall swimwear contests but had to overcome a tumour diagnosis in her 60s – which she was worried she might not survive.
"Luckily it was benign but I'm just grateful to still be on this planet," she said.
Suzy is now splitting her time between modelling and writing a novel.
"I've taken writing up more since the pandemic and am just finishing my first novel," she said.
