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 almost twenty years. But what makes her really rather extraordinary is that she is now in her late eighties (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.

In it, Daphne shares a wealth of anecdotes from her peripatetic childhood, following her teacher father from school to school, from her modelling career, which began as a department store house model, and from her long and happy marriage. The result is a vivid and inspiring memoir from a woman who has always embraced life and who continues to do so in her ninth (tenth) decade with as much zest as in her first.

Georgina Morley, non-fiction editorial director, acquired UK and Commonwealth rights to The Way We Wore from Gordon Wise at Curtis Brown.

Morley said: “Everyone at Pan Macmillan is absolutely thrilled to be publishing Daphne Selfe’s memoir, The Way We Wore. Daphne is an inspiration to us all, proving that real beauty is ageless.”
