DHAKA: Living legends from the earliest years of the supermodel era won big cheers and loud applause at New York fashion week, demonstrating that beauty has no sell-by date.
Carmen Dell’Orefice, 81, the Irving Penn and Salvador Dali muse who, more recently, lost her life savings in the Bernie Madoff investment fraud scandal, sparkled in a caramel gown at the climax of the Norisol Ferrari show.
Also walking the Lincoln Center runway for the New York designer, who launched her sophisticated ready-to-wear collection two years ago, were Carol Alt, 51, and Karen Bjornson, 60.
They displayed a work ethic as serious as any of their upstart teenage peers, with Alt revealing on Twitter how she was up before dawn to make it to the make-up table for Ferrari, The Straits Times reports on Tuesday.
