Daphne Selfe: I don’t do surgery
Daphne Selfe

Daphne Selfe has “never” had plastic surgery.

The star continues to turn heads as an 83-year-old model. However, she opts for the natural look and doesn’t understand why so many other women opt for the surgeon’s knife.

“I’ve never had anything done to my face,” she told British newspaper The Daily Mail. “Not that poison, not a facelift. I think it’s a waste of money. Anyway, I couldn’t afford it!’”

Daphne most recently agreed to pose as Madonna in her prime wearing a replica of the singer’s conical bra and corset made by Jean Paul Gaultier for the Blonde Ambition tour in 1990. The photograph, taken by Perou, is being auctioned to raise money for Oxfam’s Big Bra Hunt.

“It’s a replica, but it’s still terribly unforgiving. I thought they might have done a bit of airbrushing!” she joked.

“I’m not that brave. I used to pose nude, you know, for artists including Barbara Hepworth.”

While she admits she is not entirely happy with her body, Daphne counts herself lucky to have aged well. The model is also blessed with not having to work too hard on maintaining her beauty.

“I think it’s partly down to good genes. My mother was a livewire, she lived until she was 95,” she said.

“I’ve never really bothered with skin cream or anything like that, although I might use a bit of Boots. I hate anything you can’t take the top off and dig around for what’s left in the bottom.

“I did dye my hair at home for a while when I started to go grey in my early 40s. Occasionally, I would go into L’Oreal as a guinea pig, but it became too much of a bother.”
