Now if this isn’t absolutely fabulous, I don’t know what is.
Daphne Selfe, who has been modeling since her early twenties, is part of Oxfam’s Big Bra Hunt, a humanitarian effort to donate bras from the UK to women in developing countries. What’s the widowed mother of three (who has never had any cosmetic work done) wearing in the ad? The Jean Paul Gaultier satin corset and conical bra made famous by Madonna.
Selfe credits “good genes” for her stunning looks and figure, in a recent interview with Liz Jones at the UK’s Daily Mail. She notes that a positive attitude, remaining active and maintaining a pulled together look keep her going. Her gorgeous silver hair is kept long and worn “in a topknot. It avoids that old lady permed look, lengthens the neck and lifts the face.”
As for her personal style, Selfe notes: “I tend to wear all the clothes I have in my wardrobe from decades ago: every style seems to come round again. The only thing I can no longer wear is high heels [due to vasculitis]. ”
