Carmen Dell'Orefice, a legend in the global fashion industry, is a supermodel who appeared on the cover of "Vogue" at the age of 15 and has been on the runway for 70 years and is considered "the longest working model in the world".
Born in New York, Carmen, USA, has a height of 1.80 meters and a delicate face that is easily impressive, and in her twilight years, she is known for her iconic silver-white hair, which is considered a model of elegance and calmness.
Carmen has not appeared in the public eye for a long time, but on October 5, local time, she finally appeared, and as soon as she appeared, she caused a series of exclamations...
The 91-year-old supermodel, wrapped in a white sheet, half lying on the double bed, with slender and slender legs vividly displayed, is very eye-catching, and at first glance it is difficult to think that this is an elderly woman.
Carmen didn't feel anything special about being asked to take this type of photo at this age, in her opinion, it was working with the photographer, "they all have a high spirit, they all want to present the perfect picture through the lens, and we are silent actors, it's a collaboration," Carmen said.
Carmen was discovered by a photographer's wife when she was 13 years old, after which she started modeling and became her breadwinner. According to her recollection, she initially signed a contract for $7.50 an hour (53 RMB at the current exchange rate), and because of her good image, the work was one after another.
But that wasn't enough to support her and her mother, and Carmen was at the time to roller skate to work instead of taking the bus to save money. This life also led to her malnutrition, and according to photographers she worked with, Carmen often stuffed tissues into her skirt to "fill the curves."
Fortunately, as her fame grew, her salary also increased, but her thin body also needed medical care, and even injected drugs, so that her body could have a curvy beauty.
Although Carmen achieved good results at a young age, because she could not be favored by the well-known model agent at the time, Irene Ford, she did not arouse much spark in the fashion circle.
After three marriages, Carmen returned to the modeling industry, but did not do much, until after her 60s, she was slowly valued as the representative of "graceful aging" women.
Carmen appeared at Paris Fashion Week at the age of 85, and the major fashion magazines exclaimed, saying that "she looks like a queen".
Carmen's long-lost appearance has also triggered a heated discussion, and many people feel that she looks really young, "like a 60-year-old feeling", "completely without the appearance of an old dragon clock, still very energetic".
As for his "frozen age", Carmen said that it stems from "maternal love and self-love", "whether men or women, should care about themselves and love themselves", "one of the secrets of staying beautiful is to do something for your children and raise them with love".
Carmen and her first husband, Bill Myers, have a daughter, Laura. It is reported that although Carmen feels strong and confident, she has been financially exploited by her first husband, and almost all of the model's income is taken away by her husband, leaving her only $50 per month.
While many have praised Carmen's stunning condition, others feel that the photos are distorted, and Carmen and the "legendary supermodel" next to her, Beverly Johnson, 69, have been over-retouched, "the face is too smooth".
Beverly was the first African-American model to appear on the cover of Vogue, and she has been on the cover of more than 500 magazines in her career, and in January this year she was officially called a "legendary supermodel" by the authoritative model list. Beverly, who has long been a grandmother, does not shy away from the external factors of keeping herself young, and she says that she has been insisting on medical beauty for more than 30 years.
