An 83-year-old model is making waves in the international modeling industry.
With her mane of silver locks, elongated neck and cheekbones that could cut glass, Daphne Selfe has a body most 20-somethings would kill for.
Her secret? 'I think it’s partly down to good genes. I’ve never really bothered with skin cream or anything like that, although I might use a bit of Boots (British chain for chemists). I did dye my hair at home for a while when I started to go grey in my early 40s. Occasionally, I would go into L’Oreal as a guinea pig, but it became too much of a bother,' she recently told the Daily Mail Online.
Daphne is signed to Models 1 agency in London and has worked with iconic photographers like Mario Testino and Rankin as well as gracing the pages of Vogue (see our gallery below).
Most recently she posed as Madonna for British charity Oxfam, wearing the Jean Paul Gaultier conical bra and corset. What strikes you most is that Daphne is not vain in the least but does find it important to be groomed and care for yourself. When asked her thoughts on aging, she continued, 'It’s going to happen, so why worry? My generation got on with it. I do find people are always complaining these days. I try to remain cheerful, not grumpy. I’ve developed glaucoma, but the drops I have to put in my eyes have made my lashes grow! So there is always a plus side!'
We couldn’t have put it better ourselves.
