Top model Carmen Dell’Orefice is the world’s oldest working model at age 83. Even better is the fact that the silver-haired vixen has worked more in the last 25 years than at any time in her career. Carmen first posted for Salvador Dali at age 13 and nabbed her first Vogue cover at 15.
“Carmen is the embodiment of being able to do anything you want no matter what age you are,” said Ruchel Louis Coetzee, co-executive editor of New You, which targets women ages 35 and older. “She defies age.”
Carmen Talks Sex
Asked if she still has a sex life, Carmen asks ’ … why would I give that up?’ before continuing ‘Do I love to breathe? If you have a Rolls Royce and it is up on wheels, you go in with the key and every now and then turn on the motor to make sure the motor is running. So when you want to drive the car, it is all oiled and ready.’
Carmen is all Rolls Royce, adding that although she has been married three times and engaged once, she refuses to give up on love. Expressing total candor about masturbation, the New-York born daughter of Italian and Hungarian parents responds: ‘I know how to pleasure myself’ before adding ‘I can go for a low romantic love, and that’s fine but I am conditioned to the whole meal.’
Give Up On Sexual Guilt
Asked why so many older people abandon sex later in life, the cover girl explains that they never entered the subject of sex ‘from the right door’. We’re told ‘don’t do that’ or ‘that’s bad’ by religion and doctors, too. In Carmen’s playbook, sex should be like breathing.
To that statement, we say Amen, Carmen. You are most definitely Sensual & Superyoung.
