One of our least favorite parts about the fashion industry is the prepubescent models that take the stage at fashion shows, but it looks like that may be a thing of a past. 81-year old model Carmen Dell’Orefice took to the catwalk for Norisol Ferrari and stole the motherf*cking show.
You know what they say, with age comes beauty and model Carmen Dell’Orefice has 81 years of it. Often credited as the “oldest working model” Madame Carmen is looking faaaaaaab these days. We mean, she’s totally GILF material.
The aging beauty has already taken the stage twice this year at New York Fashion Week at Norisol Ferrari and at Marimekko. All we can say is that we whole-heartedly embrace this older model trend.
Luckily in Carmen’s case, retirement does not look like it’s happening anytime soon. The lady knows how to werq. And honestly, she’ll probably be wheeling down the runway even if she’s confined to a wheelchair. You can quote us on it.
