Buddy Winkle, 95, blew up the web with her daring photos

Helen Ruth Elam van Winkle, known on social media as Buddy Winkle, was born in 1928. Today she is a mega-popular blogger with over 3.2 million followers on Instagram. Among her followers are world-famous singers Rihanna and Miley Cyrus. The 95-year-old beauty has become famous for her daring photos in bright neon images, her busy lifestyle, as well as her support for the legalization of medical cannabis, protection of the rights of the LGBT community, and the fight against toxic manifestations of the beauty industry.

Buddy Winkle destroys all stereotypes about the life of retirees. She's not afraid to be extravagant and flamboyant at 95, which sometimes leads to hate from some Internet users. OBOZREVATEL decided to tell you about the popular grandmother who lives by the motto "I've been so sassy since 1928!"

The story of Winkle's blogging began with a photo of her great-granddaughter Kennedy in cut-off shorts and a bright T-shirt. The girl saw her great-grandmother sunbathing in a rather youthful look and took a picture, which she posted in her stories. Her followers liked the picture so much and received so many reactions that Kennedy decided that her grandmother needed a separate account.

Thanks to this, the audience quickly took to the profile of the unusual pensioner and has grown to 3.2 million.

"I don't like clothes 'for grandmothers'. I have never worn them. But you will never see me in a bra where only the nipples are covered, or shorts so short that you can see half of my ass. I took such photos, but only as a joke. I have never felt old. I think at any age you can dress the way you want. Kennedy is responsible for all my outfits. We have great fun together, we are very close ," Buddy once said.
