The famous 91-year-old model showed photos from her youth

Despite her age, 91-year-old Carmen Dell’Orefice is now a sought-after and famous model.

She had her first experience in the modeling world at the age of 14. Carmen has participated in shoots for Vogue. Then she conquered most photographers with her beauty.

Our heroine was born in the family of a ballerina and a violinist. They lived in poverty. After her parents divorced, the girl remained with her mother. Her mother wanted her daughter to be a ballerina and sent her to ballet.

The girl was constantly criticized by her parents, because she was a strict and sometimes even rude woman, she did not like the appearance of her daughter. Carmen considered herself ugly, as she was the tallest and thinnest of her peers and was not popular with boys.

Due to the great lack of money, the girl could live for months in a boarding school. She dreamed of becoming a ballerina, but since she had rheumatism, it became impossible.

Nevertheless, Carmen achieved a lot, at the age of 14 she began her modeling career. In 1947, his photo made the cover of Vogue.

The model admitted that she didn’t like this photo, seeing her almost crying – her hair made her look like a boy.

The celebrity had a difficult childhood. She and her mother lived without many conveniences, money was constantly lacking. They had to pawn a sewing machine to pay for the apartment. In order to pay the electricity bill, they spent the whole month collecting funds. Now, with this baggage of experience, the woman really knows how to appreciate money and life.

In 1963, the model decided to put an end to her career.

In 1978, Carmen met Norman Parkinson who brought her back to the world of fashion. The model accepted the offer, since her daughter was already an adult, and the marriage broke up.

Most often, women try to hide age-related changes in their appearance. However, Carmen did not rejuvenate and dye her hair – on the contrary, she bleached it, making a silver hue her highlight. In 1987, the woman was again in demand and popular.

By the way, Carmen has written a book in which she shares her experiences, titled: “Stay beautiful. Beauty secrets and attitudes of my forty years as a model.

And it’s true, when you look at the photos of this incredible woman, you realize that the years have no power over her. She is beautiful. Today, as in her youth, she participates in fashion shows and carries out advertising campaigns.
