Daphne Selfe Supermodel at 83: Age is Relative

With her striking long gray hair, her high cheekbones and her unmistakable looks, Daphne Selfe has made a career of modeling for the last several decades starting at the age of 20.

I’ve never had anything done to my face,’ Daphne says, pulling it this way and that. ‘Not that poison, not a facelift. I think it’s a waste of money. Anyway, I couldn’t afford it!’

Daphne grew up in Berkshire, the daughter of a teacher, and was packed off to boarding school at eight. At the age of 20, working as a ‘shop girl in coats’ in a Reading department store, she entered a local newspaper’s modelling competition and won.

In an interview with “The Daily UK” Daphne talks about her life and career

Did she fear getting older, having worked as a model? ‘It’s going to happen, so why worry? My generation got on with it. I do find people are always complaining these days. I try to remain cheerful, not grumpy. I’ve developed glaucoma, but the drops I have to put in my eyes have made my lashes grow! So there is always a plus side.

Do you recognize the Jean Paul Gaultier Bra and Corset? She looks great

How do the younger models treat her? ‘They are so lovely to me. They tell me they want to look like me when they get older. But they are babies.’

Daphne is a woman for all ages that look to class, grace and style as their guide. If all woman could age as gracefully as you, we would all be a lot healthier emotionally.
