THE WORLD’s OLDEST MODEL - CARMEN DELL''OREFICE*** Кармен Делл’Орефис

Carmen Dell’Orefice (born June 3, 1931) is 80 years old right now. She is the oldest model in the world modeling for the last 66 years, placing herself in the Guinness Book of World Records. Carmen is an American model and actress, born in New York, NY. Her parents were Italian and Hungarian ((violinist and dancer).
Carmen began her career at US Vogue in 1945 where she was on contract for $7.95 an hour. She even served as muse to Salvador Dali when she was just 13. In 1947, Carmen got a raise to $10–$25 per hour. She appeared on the October 1947 cover of Vogue, at age 16, one of the youngest Vogue cover models ever.
In her 66 year career Carmen has graced the cover of Vogue six times, landed 14 cosmetics campaigns, and was photographed by the greats (Richard Avedon, Irving Penn, and Cecil Beaton to name a few).
She is known within the fashion industry for being the world's oldest working model as of the Spring/Summer 2012 season. She covered Vogue at the mere age of 15, and has been modelling ever since.

Кармен Делл'Орефис - американская актриса и супермодель, которая родилась в Нью-Йорке (США) 3 июня 1931 года. Да, здесь нет опечатки, ей действительно 80 лет и она не только в добром здравии, но все еще работает супермоделью. Родители Кармен были из разных стран - Италии и Венгрии.
Kармен подписалa свой первый контракт на $7,50 в час. Это произошло в 1946, когда ей было 15 лет. Также, Кармен была музой Сальвадора Дали.В 1947 году гонорар Кармен вырос до $10-25 в час. Кармен Делл'Орефис часто появлялась на обложках журнала Vogue. Она была одной из самых молодых моделей, которые попали на обложку этого известнейшего журнала. Она работала с самыми известными фэшин-фотографами эпохи, в том числе и с Ирвином Пенном (Irving Penn), Глебом Дерюжинским (Gleb Derujinsky), Франческо Скавулло (Francesco Scavullo), Норманом Паркинсоном (Norman Parkinson) и Ричардом Аведоном (Richard Avedon).

  2. This is so removed from what you normally see on fashion blogs and yet THE MOST inspirational post I've seen in weeks. How is she so fabulous? Growing older is so rarely celebrated for women and I just love what a powerhouse this woman is.

    Awesome post.
