Age Cannot Wither Her

Carmen Dell'Orefice, the octogenarian goddess of the fashion world, has earned the title of oldest working model.

On the runway she struts her stuff with poise, precision, and just the right amount of age-appropriate smolder. From her first Vogue cover at the age of 15 to her recent catwalk cameos, Dell'Orefice's beauty and talent have neither faded nor flagged. Simply put, she's got It!
