According to the Guinness Book of Records, Carmen Dell’Orefice is the model with the longest lifespan in the entire globe. We have been encouraged to believe by both the media and society that a woman is only attractive during the so-called «bloom of youth.» But as many women have taken it upon themselves to demonstrate, that could not be further from the truth.

But that’s not all; in 1946, when Carmen was only 15 years old, she also boasts the distinction of being the youngest woman to be featured on the cover of Vogue. She has also been highlighted in other well-known fashion publications, including Harper’s Bazaar and W Magazine, and she even served as the face of the renowned Chanel No 5 perfume.

Together, the two women posed as proof that beauty endures across all ages. A healthy diet and regular exercise are the keys to maintaining good health, as has often been noted.
She stated that as time never stands still and change is something we must accept daily, she suggests keeping things straightforward because «less is more in virtually everything in life, except in love.»
