Carmen Dell’Orefice

   Carmen Dell’Orefice (born June 3, 1931)  is an American model and actress. She is known within the fashion industry for being the world’s oldest working model as of the Spring/Summer 2012 season. She was on the cover of Vogue at the age of 15 and has been modelling ever since.

At the age of 13, while riding a bus to ballet class, she was approached to model by the wife of photographer Herman Landschoff. Her test photos, taken at Jones Beach, were a “flop” according to Dell’Orefice. In 1946, her godfather introduced her to Vogue and the 15-year-old signed a modeling contract for $7.50 an hour. She became a favorite model of photographer Erwin Blumenfeld who shot her first Vogue cover in 1946. She appears in the December 15, 1947 issue of US Vogue as Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White and Cinderella along with model Dorian Leigh, actors Ray Bolger and Jose Ferrer. Dell’Orefice and her mother struggled financially, and her modeling income was not enough to sustain the family. With no telephone, Vogue had to send runners to their apartment to let Dell’Orefice know about modeling jobs. She roller-skated to assignments to save on bus fares. She was so malnourished that famed fashion photographers Horst P. Horst and Cecil Beaton had to pin back dresses and stuff the curves with tissue.

Dell’Orefice and her mother were accomplished seamstresses and made extra money making clothes. One of their customers was Dorian Leigh. Dell’Orefice later became best friends with Leigh’s younger sister, model Suzy Parker. Together they were bridesmaids at Leigh’s second wedding to Roger Mehle in 1948. In 1947, Dell’Orefice’s rate was raised to $10–$25 per hour. She appeared on the October 1947 cover of Vogue, at age 16, one of the youngest Vogue cover models. She was also on the November 1948 cover of Vogue. She worked with the most famous fashion photographers of the era, including Irving Penn, Gleb Derujinsky, Francesco Scavullo, Norman Parkinson, and Richard Avedon. Dell’Orefice was photographed by Melvin Sokolsky for Harper’s Bazaar in 1960. The image titled Carmen Las Meninas has been collected internationally. Sokolsky also photographed her for the classic Vanity Fair lingerie campaign in which Dell’Orefice obscures her face with her hand. She was painter Salvador Dalí‘s muse.

    კარმენ დელ ორეფისი შეყვანილია გინესის რეკორდების წიგნში ყველაზე ხანგრძლივი სამოდელო კარიერისთვის. ახლა ის 85 წლისაა, მაგრამ მაინც ყველაზე სასურველი მოდელია, ის ხომ მისაბაძი ფიგურა, ამერიკის გლამურისა და ოპტიმიზმის მაგალითია.
