The 80 Year Old Catwalk Queen!

Meet 80 year old Carmen Dell’Orefice the world’s oldest working supermodel! Her big break came in 1946 when she became one of the youngest ever cover girls for Vogue aged just 15 and then she appeared in the December issue as Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White and Cinderella. Cue a massive career that spans six decades and features the greatest photographers from Irving Penn to Horst and Cecil Beaton. Her last high-profile job was in January for Alberta Ferrati, where her cloud of white hair and fabulously bone structured face was in full effect on the Catwalk. Carmen puts staying beautiful in what she calls ‘late old age’ down to ‘living a life of moderation and balance’.

We hope that one day one of our models will still be modelling at the age of 80!
