Carmen Dell’Orefice is the oldest top model in the world.  She has been modeling for more than 40 years and she is still on track!



Carmen Dell’Orefice was born in June 3rd 1931 in New York city. She is today 82 years old and she is worldwide known as the oldest top model still working. She was on the cover of Vogue at the age of 15. At that time she had her first contract for $7.50 an hour.




At the age of 50, after a bad marriage, she was obliged to get back to modeling for financial reasons. And she has been modeling since then.


Nowadays, she is still the muse of many photographers, creators and Brands. Here is a 2009 campaign for Rolex on the topic “Class is Forever”. A very sophisticated campaign in which Carmen Dell’Orefice is highlighted with the Rolex watches. Very edgy campaign.



Here are 2 videos during latest fashion weeks. She is just amazingly sparkling.

In 1985, she co-wrote her biography called Staying Beautiful – Beauty secrets and attitudes from my forty years as a model. In the book she gives several beauty tips to keep on shape.


In 2011, she celebrated 80 years old and an exhibition took place in London with all her Vogue Covers.
Here is one of the latest ads of Carmen for the Italian Vogue last month.


Carmen Dell’Orefice  is an inspiration, a fashion icon and an U.F.O.
