LOOK OF THE MONTH Aging Without Growing Old Carmen Dell’Orefice is proof positive that growing up doesn’t have to equal giving up. Not all models age gracefully. Here, a few of our faves: The Good At 57 Iman continues to be a , statuesque beauty. The Bad Sure, she’s still beautiful and, like Dell’Orefice, a model at last month’s NYFW, but 42-year-old Naomi Campbell’s bad attitude hasn’t improved with age. Carmen Dell’Orefice W 132 ith critics deriding how young and skinny models have become, this should give them something to cheer about: Carmen Dell’Orefice, an 81-year-old model, walked not one, but two runway shows at New York’s spring 2013 Fashion Week last month. With her silver mane (which has been dye-free for decades) and elegance that belies her age, the octogenarian recently starred alongside other mature models, including Jerry Hall and Christie Brinkley, in the HBO Film, About Face: The Supermodels, Then and Now. “I don’t know if it’s good or silly,” she told the Today show of her current modeling career. “It’s what I enjoy doing, and I’m able to do it.” Dell’Orefice’s presence on the runway underscores not only the current trend in creating silver strands (even Adam Lambert is in on it, as seen at NYFW), but also an increasing acceptance of a graying population. “I think America may be growing up and accepting the fact that the bulk of life exists beyond 50,” she said. Amen. —Amy Dodds 10.12 The Ugly The self-described “world’s first supermodel,” 57-year-old Janice Dickinson is now a model for how not to get plastic surgery.
