Carmen Dell’Orefice, who at 81 holds the Guinness World Record for Oldest Working Model, is still stunning her way down the catwalk. She made a splash at Fashion Week last week by walking the runway twice in one day, and being photographed with Ryan Lochte.
She was discovered at age 13 while riding a bus in New York, and landed a $7.50/hr gig for Vogue by age 15. It hasn’t been all rosebuds since then, at age 77 she lost practically all of her life’s fortune in the Madoff scandal. That hasn’t fazed Carmen, though, she’s been working steadily ever since that setback.
How does she stay so gorgeous?
