93-Year-Old Is Killin' It On Instagram With Her Modeling Shots

Get it, grandma!

Instagram's latest it-girl isn't a model or young starlet -- it's a 93-year-old Japanese grandma. And we're absolutely in love. Meet Emiko, who is the nonagenarian star of her granddaughter, Chinami Mori's, Instagram page. 

Mori weaves incredible clothes with vivid designs in a rainbow of bright colors for her grandma to model. Her work was featured on the social media site's blog, where she talked about her craft. 

Mori uses a special Japanese weaving technique called "Saori," which allows her to mix up many different colors, resulting in specular patterns. 

But as beautiful as her weavings are, we really think it's Emiko that truly makes them stand out. And her granddaughter agrees. 

 

“She’s my favorite person in the whole world,” Chinami tells Instagram. “I make grandma happy, and that’s just so much fun for me, too.”

Emiko isn't the only Instagrandma to take social media by storm. Earlier this year we wrote about the fabulous 90-year-old Betty Bailey, who is also an Instagram star known for her eclectic fashion sense. And of course, there's the ultimate Instagram diva, Baddie Winkle, the 86-year-old who has over 1.7 million followers and has even starred in a fashion campaign thanks to her newfound fame.
