Carmen Dell’Orefice may fill our head with forlorn dreams of cheekbones that cut glass at 82-years-old, but we don’t resent her for it. In fact, will take any glimmer of hope we can get that haute couture might lie in our future 60 years down the road.
Oh, Carmen Dell’Orefice, how we worship thee. Our favorite octogenarian model is back again in this month’s Vogue Italia to prove that “flawless” knows no age limit — and this time, she has a team of platinum-tressed young’uns to whip into shape.
“I’m 80, and I’m sick of it.”
We have no qualms about being total Carmen Dell’Orefice fangirls — the 80-year-old supermodel is stunning, glamorous, and her wit is even sharper than her acute sense of style. But instead of settling into a life of lush retirement, Dell’Orefice is fighting off creditors and banks who want her money, and it has a lot to do with infamous Ponzi schemer Bernie Madoff.
Last night fancy fashion folk gathered for the 15th annual Accessories Council Excellence Awards. We love the ACE Awards because fashion event red carpets are generally pretty great, and it’s where Kanye told the world that fashion breaks his heart last year. There weren’t any groundbreaking speeches last night, but there were some lovely dresses. Let’s discuss!
Every day we pray to a bottle of Neutrogena Oil Free Moisture SPF 35 that we age just half as well as supermodel Carmen Dell’Orefice. At 80 years old, she is perhaps one of the most beautiful women on Earth and one of the most talented (and certainly experienced) models working today. Here she is in a spread for Vanity Fair Italia, modeling modified versions of some of the looks on the runways just last season.
