In some cases, behind every strong and confident woman is a headstrong matriarch. With Coleen Garcia, that may well be her grandmother Syra Garcia, who just turned 70. To mark the milestone, the "fitness grandma" posed in front of the camera for a sultry boudoir shoot, where she looked absolutely jaw-dropping!
LOOK: Syra Garcia Celebrates Her 70th Birthday with a Sexy Boudoir Photo Shoot
On June 8, Coleen greeted her grandma on Instagram with a video that showcased Syra’s boudoir photos.
“Happy 70th birthday to this badass woman! Thank you for teaching me—for continuing to teach me—what it is to be strong, confident, and empowered. I love you, and I will forever be grateful for everything! [sparkle emoji],” she wrote in the caption.
Coleen also revealed that it was Syra’s birthday wish to have the sexy photoshoot. Breaking free from society's preconceived notions about age and beauty, the 70-year-old demonstrated that sexiness and self-confidence can thrive at any stage of life.
The portraits, which were taken by the Metrophoto team, showcased Syra unapologetically flaunting her toned, tatted body in an exquisite selection of lingerie styled by Adrianne Concepcion. We especially loved how she let out her natural white tresses in its full glory, as styled by Renz Pangilinan into a glamorous vintage bob. To match her fierce, femme fatale energy, makeup artist Pong Niu gave her defined arches and smokey cat eyes, pairing them with a glossy nude lip.
