Age is just a number for supermodel Daphne Selfe!
In a beautiful new ad campaign, the 86-year-old model poses with 22-year-old Flo Dron in a series of poignant shots showing off footwear brand Vans' design collaboration with online clothing company & Other Stories.
Daphne's modeling career first began in 1949 when the then-20-year-old entered a competition to be the cover girl of a local London magazine. Since then, she has appeared in high-fashion magazines 'Vogue,' 'Harpers Bazaar' and 'Vanity Fair,' among others. Last year, she was officially awarded the Guinness World Record title for the world's oldest working supermodel.

In a 2014 interview, the grandmother-of-four credited her late parents for bestowing her with "good genes and health." Today, Daphne admits she keeps in shape by gardening, practicing yoga and walking.
“I’ve always eaten sensibly and I don’t think that does anybody any harm. And I make the best of everything — be curious, be positive and have a healthy lifestyle. I was lucky to exercise a lot when I was young. I’ve done dancing, and all sorts of things like that — which I think helps, when you get older," she said.

Throughout her more than 60 years in the fashion spotlight, Daphne confessed she has never once considered undergoing plastic surgery to preserve her youthful looks.
"Age happens to us all, no one’s immune... I’ve always believed that my face tells the story of my life — why would I want to change it?" she told the UK's 'Daily Express.'
