Do you know Daphne Selfe? Well, let’s know a little more then. There are supermodels and struggling model, then there are new, budding supermodels that grace the catwalk every year. Although they all share one common trait that is the power, courage, persistence and the burning drive to keep going forward in this career.
There may be lot of models that come and go, their whole career is as dynamic as trends in the fashion world. They keep changing. But then we also have those models who become eternally sketched into our minds. Models like Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss and ofcourse Daphne Selfe. 89-year-old Supermodel Daphne Selfe Proves That Strength And Youthfulness Comes From Within.
PIBE is a quarterly womenswear and menswear journal focused on fashion, beauty and art. For their Spring’s issue called Mentally Strong I did a feature called True Confidence which I thought I’d share with you (click on my website link in my profile). Working with photographer Iakavos and interviewed by Jessie Pink. Questions that came up are:- How resilient are you? Does this word strike a chord with you? How confident are you and would you say you have true confidence? Do let me know in the comments

It is true that life has a way of turning back time, Daphne Selfe got married for many years to Jim Smith, who worked in theatre and television production. She stopped modelling and moved to Hertfordshire, currently living there as well, to bring up their three children. Unfortunately when her husband died after a long illness, she was once again rediscovered – at the age of 70.
Daphne Selfe appeared in Vogue and many others, while her campaigns include Dolce and Gabbana, Nivea and Olay. Furthermore, this 89-year-old has become a sensation yet again as Daphne landed a huge new gig with Eyeko, promoting their Bespoke Mascara.
Manners Lost Life has changed so much during the 89 years I’ve lived and the difference in manners is something I’m conscious of as I go about my daily life. As I dash around London jumping on and off buses, trains and the underground (I do take a taxi from time to time but it often takes longer in the traffic) I notice that it isn’t often that I’m offered a seat. Late one night this week after leaving the Ballet at Sadlers Wells the underground carriage was crowded. Full with mainly young people and not one of them thought about if I might need a sit down.

Daphne Selfe, who has been modelling since 1949, is just as fierce as she was back in her early years. But it will be a lie to think or say that Daphne Selfe has aged, this lady with remarkable features definitely still has that youthfulness reflecting in her eyes.
WHAT NEW ADVENTURES? At the beginning of a New Year I always like to review the last. Looking back over the last year what are you grateful for? I’m grateful that I’m still modelling and in demand. I’ve done some fabulous jobs, met amazing people, worn beautiful clothes and visited new places. I’ve been able to be useful and contribute – I particularly love mentoring my Model Family (students who have taken my online courses). I’ve socialised with friends, seen art in many forms and had the support of my family and community.
