“I’ve always considered myself a silent actress. The story line is what a photograph is all about,” Carmen Dell’Orefice, 85 today, once told Vogue. Touted it’s known the “oldest working model,” Dell’Orefice grew up inVogue, first appearing in its pages in 1946.
As a teenager, Dell’Orefice, who describes her upbringing as “spartan,” would roller skate to the studio, where she was snapped for Vogue.
She was four times a cover girl, though she recounts bursting into tears when she saw her first one on the newsstand. “I looked like a boy,” she remembers in an interview. “But it was a lesson. From then on I began to disassociate the real me from the Carmen on the covers.”
The Carmen portrayed on photographs and runways has always exemplified glamour, but never in a changeless way. There’s nothing nostalgic about her look. Dell’Orefice has changed with the time, making her not so much a classic beauty, but an iconic one.
