 36-26-36 Figure Gains 80-Year Old Granny Top-Notch Modelling Contracts!
Grey haired Daphne Selfe has become Britain's oldest model to enjoy a career in modelling at the age of 80, with a 36-26-36 figure to boost.

Selfe, who is a grandmother of four, had started her career on the catwalk 60 years ago, and she is still going strong, earning 1,000 pounds a day in campaigns for designer brands such as Dolce and Gabbana.

She has never had cosmetic surgery, and when she started her modelling in 1950, she weighed 10 stone and boasted the statistics 36-24-37, and now she is only a stone and a half-lighter with figures that have barely altered.

The aged model is very much sought after and is currently on the books of top agency Models 1, and she also appeared in Vogue and Marie Claire and has been photographed by the likes of Mario Testino, Nick Knight, and David Bailey.

For Selfe, her modelling career blossomed in later years as she promoted the benefits of going grey.

"My hair is my fortune, it made me more striking," the Telegraph quoted her as saying.

"Other younger models admire me but they're not jealous as I'm not a threat. I have a niche all of my own.

"I don't feel a day over 60. It's fantastic. I'll continue modelling until they stop asking. I love it. It's fun and keeps me young. I was never one for wild parties and I've never had any need to get drunk," she added.
