Meet the world’s oldest working model. She’s 83 and looks amazing.

Carmen Dell’Orefice has been a model for nearly 70 years. At just 15 years old, she landed the cover of Vogue and hasn’t looked back since.

At 83, she’s considered the world’s “oldest working model”. She’s not fighting her age; she’s embracing it.

“I’ve had more covers in the past 15 years than I had in all the years before that,” she said.

Her most recent cover was for New You magazine, proving in an industry that doesn’t look too kindly on ageing that beauty and age are definitely not mutually exclusive.

“Everyone is transfixed by her presence,” one magazine said. “Those arresting cheekbones, her signature, full-bodied white hair; long and graceful limbs; that exquisite smile.”
