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

My desire is to inspire you to embrace all stages of your life and truly believe it gets better and better – it really can, even though you may have been told otherwise!

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

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

THE WAY WE WORE: A Life in Clothes

Daphne Selfe’s Autobiography


Available in English, Japanese and Chinese


Daphne Selfe has been photographed by Mario Testino, Nick Knight and David Bailey. She has modelled for Dolce and Gabbana, Red or Dead and high-street chains such as TK Maxx, and regularly appears in newspaper fashion pages and glossy magazines. She is one of Britain’s most in-demand supermodels and has worked non-stop for over twenty years. But what makes her really rather extraordinary is that she is now in her nineties.

The Way We Wore is a heart-warming account of that love affair, taking readers from the organdie party frocks of a 1930s childhood to the pages of Vogue.
