What can we learn from this amazing lady?
Her modeling career has literally spanned seven decades. Selfe appears in the new ad campaign for TK Maxx (the UK's answer to TJ Maxx).
Selfe began modeling in the 1950s and after a lengthy period out of the business returned in 1998 at the age of 70.
She is still modeling for various magazines at the age of 87.
She is undoubtedly the poster child for aging gracefully.
"I've never had anything done to my face. Not that poison, not a face-lift. I think it's a waste of money. Anyway, I couldn't afford it!"
So how on earth does she do it, remain so fit, so amazing!
Ms. Selfe's "secret" to success and longevity?
‘I think it’s partly down to good genes. My mother was a livewire, she lived until she was 95. I’ve never really bothered with skin cream or anything like that. I walk, do yoga, eat well and stay active."
"I did dye my hair at home for a while when I started to go grey in my early 40s, but it became too much of a bother."
For a woman who has spent a lifetime in front of the camera, Daphne is surprisingly without vanity.
“I think I have been curious, positive, and am lucky to have good genes. I have always tried new things and never been afraid to experiment. I have been taught to have a professional attitude and good work ethic. I'm always genuinely interested in every person I work with and I think that helps too.”
"Keep learning new things, never be bored, read books and see films outside your favorites, travel when you can, pick up a new (or old) hobby. These habits make us feel engaged and more alive."
'Women are too sloppy these days, they simply don't look in the mirror. Leggings and skinny jeans — just dreadful!'
