You may think that the runways and fashion magazines are overrun by the insta-models of this generation, but we’re happy to know, that one woman is proving that age is just a number when it comes to ruling the runway.

American model Carmen Dell’Orefice just closed Chinese couturier Guo Pei’s show in Paris, bringing the audience to a standing ovation.

The 85-year-old is the eptiome of elegance and sophistication, making a very important case for inclusivity in the fashion industry.

Dell’Orefice’s first brush with fame was at the age of 15, when she graced the cover of Vogue, in 1946. She then went on to cover the magazine another four times throughout her career.

With a career spanning more than 70 years, Del’Orefice’s beauty has been captured by everyone from esteemed photographer Jerry Schatzberg to Horst P. Horst.

As the oldest working model in the world, Del’Orefice’s secret may lie in the way she approaches her craft – “I’ve always considered myself a silent actress… The story line is what a photograph is all about.

We couldn’t agree more.

Would you love to see more inclusivity in the fashion industry?
