Description - The Way We Wore by Daphne Selfe

Daphne Selfe has modelled for Dolce and Gabbana, Red or Dead 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 20 years. But what makes her really rather extraordinary is that she is now in her late eighties. The Way We Wore is a heart-warming account of her lifelong love affair with clothes and fashion, taking readers from the organdie party frocks of a 1930s childhood to the pages of Vogue.

Author Biography - Daphne Selfe

Born in 1928, Daphne Selfe grew up in London and the Home Counties, before being sent to boarding school during the Second World War. Just after her 21st birthday she won a local magazine cover-girl competition and joined the Gaby Young Agency in London, where she trained to be a model. She has been an artist's model, a department-store model and a commercial model, appearing in advertisements for anything from clothes to breakfast cereal to gin. Happily married for many years to Jim Smith, who worked in theatre and television production, Daphne stopped modelling and moved to Hertfordshire, where she still lives, to bring up their three children. But when her husband died after a long illness, she was suddenly rediscovered - at the age of 70. She has been working continuously ever since.
