“Why Grandma, what big legs you have!” “All the better to WERK IT ON THAT CATWALK.”
We imagine that that’s what the conversation would sound like if Little Red Riding Hood’s grandma were 83-year-old Carmen Dell’Orefice, who has been dubbed the world’s oldest active supermodel.
Dell’Orefice, who has been in the modeling industry for over 70 years, stuns on the cover of the latest edition of New You magazine, which was released yesterday (Feb. 11). Not surprisingly, the model’s elderly visage and shock of white hair are garnering her a fair amount of attention. Carmen admits that her career has done better in the past 25 years alone than it has in her whole lifetime.
