Carmen Dell’Orefice has been a model since she was 15-years-old… in 1946. She got her big break when she signed a modeling contract with Vogue for $7.50/hour. She retired from modeling in 1958, but returned to the world of fashion 20 years later in 1978. Dell’Orefice received an honorary doctorate from the University of the Arts London a month after her 80th birthday. The now 85-year-old superstar is still turning heads with a timeless grace that can’t be ignored. See the hardest working woman on the catwalk strut her stuff in the highlight video below!
