I’m Daphne Selfe – model, a person full of curiosity and optimism, as I have been for most of my 90 years.

I continue to model, travel the world and have new adventures. My intention is to encourage and build confidence through passing on my knowledge and experience.

Knowing when life long habits and fashions need updating takes a good eye (the inner artist in us all and in some of us it might need a bit of developing, but it is there). 


Natural beauty is largely what shines out of you, irrespective of your physical attributes and circumstances. It’s in your eyes, attitude, poise and attention to those around you. There are rules which I find are mainly untaught that I can teach you.

  • No more wondering where and how do I get started in modelling
  • Or who can I turn to and trust
  • Had enough of feeling invisible
  • It’s all over and downhill from now on – I say nonsense to that!

Modelling since 1949 with no signs of stopping. As long as I am booked to model, I shall keep turning up
