Carmen Dell'Orefice Talks The Importance Of Sex In Healthy Aging For New You Magazine

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.

Carmen Dell'Orefice & Sam Webb | Brian Jankic | Geil Magazine October 2010

Posting editorials about Carmen Dell’Orefice a couple weeks ago, I held onto ‘La Vie En Rose’ for a special callout. Styled by Kim Johnson for Geil Magazine, October 2010, Brian Jankic’s images are just the kind of provocative editorial that doesn’t get picked up on fashion blogs — unless Carine Roitfeld is behind it or more recently Steven Klein’s aging Amber Valletta for W Magazine.

We are working to expand our Body channel, bringing back the health and aging articles that I pulled out about a year ago, my own half-finished Sensual & Superyoung manuscript, and enhancing greatly our spiritual and intellectual discussion of unconscious topics that affect our health, relationship with food, self love and overall wellbeing as women (and men) with our new 2Ps in a Pod blog with Bro.Dennis, myself and an expanding cast of contributors.

AOC is not switching gears away from young women at all, or sexuality — which has been moved to Sensual Rebel — but want to be sure that we always celebrate aging women.We started down this road a year ago with Ageless Fabulosity but ran into a female roadblock with one of the writers being very unhappy with me.

Aging is the kiss of death in America, compared to other countries like Italy, France or Brazil where older women are revered and frequently considered to be very sensual and beautiful. We’re picking up the mantle again, on behalf of our many readers who are over 35 and seek an introspective, sex-positive, spiritual discussion of our value as older women.

Yes, ‘La Vie en Rose’ is provocative, just as Carine Roitfeld and Tom Ford’s Clarissa & Doug’ may have partly responsible for Carine’s firing as editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris, just as Steven Klein’s aging Amber Valletta pushes the sensual envelope.

Surely, featuring older models in passionate embraces shouldn’t be grounds for cries of “put them away, I can’t bear it” from young people, but this is the truth. Especially 35 year-old women can’t bear the thought of parents who are sexual beings.

We’ll keep our eyes out for more inspiring editorials like Carmen Dell’Orefice and Sam Web. Enjoy the fantasy. Anne

Supermodel Carmen dell'Orefice Is A Beautiful Working Girl at 80

The brand message on Carmen dell’Orefice’s spring/summer 2009 Rolex campaign sums up the inspiring model’s contribution to female identity: Class Is Forever.

While the fashion word celebrates CARMEN: A Life in Fashion at London’s Fashion Space Gallery: London College of Fashion in an exhibit running unti January 14, 2012, the 80-year-model is quick to explain that she is a working girl for a reason.

Within this context, Carmen’s ‘Class Is Forever’ Rolex message truly resonates. Earlier this year, the Daily Mail explained the model’s return to the lens:

Carmen, who reportedly lost her money in the stock market in the 1990’s, invested what little she had left with Madoff, who swindled thousands out of an estimated $50bn with a Ponzi scheme. She was introduced to the former Wall Street financial expert by her then-boyfriend Norman Levy. She and Madoff were close friends until the scheme came to light in 2008. At the time, she said:’For the second time in my life, I’ve lost all of my life savings.’

But the model is still optimistic, despite celebrating her 80th birthday this year. Carmen told The Telegraph: ‘I’m a working woman of 80 trying to work out what the image I can project is. How I can do it with, you know, dignity.’

We take a look at very recent Carmen editorials:

Glen Luchford lensed Carmen in ‘Four Women’ for V Magazine November 2010.

In March 2011, Carmen dell’Orefice was lensed by Ruven Afanador for Vanity Fair Italy.

Chris Craymer lenses Carmen Dell’Orefice in new images for Amica, styled by Ise White, mixed with older fashion gold. Next, we will focus on Carmen’s London exhibit, with more images of this marvelous style icon and inspiration to us all.
