Daphne Selfe Biography
Daphne began her career in modeling in 1949. Her long career has helped to challenge negative views of aging which has helped put older people in front of the camera as models, she said. Official recognition in the New Year Honours now stands beside her industry-accepted status as a “supermodel”.
After having was photographed for the leading fashion and style magazine Vogue at the age of 70 – the first time it had featured an older model – she was approached by leading organizations to do more work. This has helped inspire agents, photographers and clothing designers to consider older people as models.

The Daphne Selfe Academy was founded in 2015 so women of all ages could benefit from her industry experience and what she called her personal values of professionalism, etiquette, positive thinking, and healthy living.
