Carmen Dell’Orefice
Guo Pei

Having graced the cover of Vogue at the young age of 15, Carmen Dell’Orefice is no newcomer to the fashion industry. Now at 85, the IconicFocus model shows no intention of slowing down anytime soon. Carmen recently closed the Guo Pei Couture Fall 2017 show in Paris. Escorted down the runway by two young male attendants, the timeless beauty radiated elegance in a scarlet gown adorned with lace and crystals, completing the regal ensemble. The collection, aptly titled “Legend”, was a nod to not only the magnificent collectoin but to Carmen as well. Dell’Orefice, the “World’s Oldest Working Model,” joins the ranks of other older models who’ve recently graced the catwalk. The Spring 2017 fashion month was the most diverse on ein recent history, boasting more models aged over 50 than “any other season in recent memory,” according to The Fashion Spot.
