Carmen Dell'Orefice....World's oldest supermodel!

Have a great Tuesday,ladies!:)*

Unfading model,
The emergence of 81-year-old American fashion model and actress Carmen Dell'Oferis on the catwalk breaks all stereotypes of the fashion world.

Carmen Dell'Orefice
In 1942, Carmen and her mother moved to New York City. At the age of 13, while riding a bus to ballet class, she was approached to model by the wife of photographer Herman Landschoff.

Dell-Orefice, who got her break on the cover of Vogue in 1947 aged 15, recently appeared along with other mature models, including Beverly Johnson, Carol Alt, Isabella Rossellini and Jerry Hall in the HBO film, About Face: The Supermodels, Then and Now.
She added: 'I think America may be growing up and accepting the fact that the bulk of life exists beyond 50. Because demographically... the vast population is over 50.'

WOW. Violetta, isn't this remarkable, that someone has taken care of herself to this point? But what strikes me the most is her aged WISDOM and confidence that she shows as she ACTS or POSES in her runway presentation. She is not just a model with clothes hanging off of her perfect model body, but she is beaming with confidence. That is the primary beauty of getting OLD.

LOVE IT! Anita
