85-Year-Old Model Owns The Catwalk

A stunning beauty on the catwalk is used to capturing attention. She's been doing it for almost 70 years, after all.

Carmen Dell’Orefice, 85, is like a fine wine; she just gets better with age. Modeling on and off since the age of 16, Dell'Orefice says she's definitely grown into her looks.

The living legend has been awarded an honorary doctorate from the University of the Arts London in recognition of her contributions to the fashion industry. Dell'Orefice has had the distinct honor of watching the American fashion market grow from the beginning. She recalls that back during World War II, women couldn't get to Europe to get their couture, so American designers began to explode onto the scene.

According to Dell’Orefice, women don't need to compare themselves to others, and should never compare themselves to when they were younger. She wants women to 'get out of the closet about aging.'

She says time defines her look now: "I lived it, I own it, and I present it."

More power to her.
