Model Watch: Carmen Dell'orefice



Now, I bet you wish she was your grandmama! I sure do.... Carmen Dell'orefice is the oldest working model till date, with a 65 year old long career and currently at the age of 80- she has made a great impact in the fashion world as a supermodel till date. Currently, signed by Models1 agency, Dell'orefice has graced the covers of Vogue several times in her career being the first time ever when she was just 13 years old. 

Since then her career has gone from height to height regularly modelling for Rolex, and appearing in Harpers Bazaar and W, magazine. 

So how does she continue to look so beautiful? Well, she is still a lovely US size 8/ UK size 10 and 5ft 10. She confirmed in an interview with the BBC News that she stays looking and feeling healthy by sleeping early, and being raised by Italian parents, meant a lot of healthy food like vegetables and salad. She loves to swim, and as a child done ballet and gymnastics so from an early age, she trained herself to care for her body and figure. 

Carmen is well known for her grace and elegance and lady like manner, her fellow colleagues find her to be a wonderful person, kind, full of character and in love with life. I am particularly drawn to her beauty- her skin looks radiant,  as well as those distinctive high cheekbones, her natural pout is so daring! And those eyes..... mesmerising. 
She is honoured in the industry and although she has faced discrimination because of her age, she is one of her kind.
