The most beautiful woman on the planet.

I have always loved Carmen Dell’Orefice. She is a timeless beauty who came from the era of Dovima, my one true modelling love. Carmen has thumbed her nose at the idea of getting old and not having work, and continues to work, even at the age of 78. First, enjoy the overview of her amazing career. Next, enjoy her walking in Guo Pei's show in Beijing -- realizing that the walk took two escorts to hold the weight of the dress, and two more to push the train along. She looks AMAZING, even today. (Sorry for the brief commercial at the beginning of the Guo Pei video, but it's short, and the show is WELL worth watching.)


  1. THANK YOU! When I saw that fashion show on TLo's blog yesterday, I was fascinated by her and wondered who she was. Thanks for answering my question!!

    She is an inspiration!

  2. Wow, she IS stunning. I really hope I can age that beautifully... I wonder if she has some amazing secret look-good-when-you're-older solution.
