Carmen Dell Orefice Modeling Career

Happy Birthday Carmen,  She turned 80 on June 8, 2011. Talk about a long career span! Born in 1931 to an Italian father and a Hungarian mother, Carmen dell’Orefice is the world’s oldest supermodel, with an entry in Guinness World Records for ‘Longest Career as a Catwalk Model’ to prove it.  She first posed for American Vogue aged 13 and became a favourite with legendary fashion photographers Irving Penn, Cecil Beaton and Richard Avedon.  She has been married three times and has a daughter, Laura, now a psychologist, from her first marriage.  She lives in New York.

Happy Birthday and congratulations on your life long 
work as a model!
