in Model

Supermodel Carmen Dell'Orefice showed up at the Norisol Ferrari Spring / Summer 2013 show during New York Fashion Week on Monday ( September 10, 2012). Walking the runway at the showcase as the world's oldest working model, the octogenarian beauty won big cheers and loud applause from audiences, demonstrating that real beauty had no age limit. The legendary model, who recently lost a considerable amount of her savings to Wall Street Ponzi scheme artist Bernie Madoff, walked confidently for Manhattan-based designer Norisol Ferrari. With her youthful elegance, signature silver mane and sultry dark eyes, Carmen Dell'Orefice sparkled in a vintage-inspired caramel gown at the climax of the event. The Irving Penn and Salvador Dali muse was joined by American actress and model Carol Alt, 51, Alva Chinn, 60, and Karen Bjornson, 60, to present the New York designer’s spring 2013 collection, which featured looks that were reminiscent of 1940s glamour, and Marilyn Monroe, Rita Hayworth and Rita Moreno were mentioned as inspirations in the show notes.
