Let's All Hope We Will Be As Fabulous As Carmen Dell'Orefice When We Are 85

Here's to closing couture shows when you have a free bus pass


What do you see yourself doing when you're 85?

Really getting into your rose garden upkeep, knitting lots of cute hats for your grandchildren, or closing a couture show?

Well, that's what Carmen Dell'Orefice does on a Wednesday afternoon - she closes Chinese couture shows at Paris Fashion Week.

We should all be so lucky.


Guo Pei, whose show Carmen walked in, is the same mastermind behind Rihanna Met Gala look in 2015.


Carmen Dell'Orefice was on the front cover of Vogue back when she was 15 in 1947.

It was one of four covers for the magazine.

And despite her long career in fashion, it shows no sign of slowing down.

Looks like Carmen Dell'Orefice will be slaying and sashaying her way into her 90s.
