Primark My Generation Model Q&A Daphne

Meet The Models: Daphne

Meet Daphne. This oh-so-fab octogenarian – yep, that means she's in her 80's! – is actually almost 90 years old – and still partying her way through life like it's 1999. As part of My Generation, which celebrates embracing yourself (and Good Vibes Only), we didn't just want Daphne for her beautiful face – we wanted to know a little bit about her generation. From hashtags to unicorns, this glam grandma is all about celebrating individuality, uniqueness, and – of course – being fab-u-lous.

Daphne, 89, model

How would you define yourself?

I'm a fashion model, and was rediscovered aged 70 – I'll be 89 this year! I'd describe myself as active and adventurous, positive and curious, with a lifelong love of clothes.

 

Describe your generation in 3 words.

Make the best.


Who or what inspires you most?

The Queen: she knows her role, is completely committed to it, and never falters. And of course she always looks fabulous!


What would your dream party be like? Who would be on the guest list?

My family and close friends; and maybe a unicorn or two...

 

If we gave you 100 bucks and a suitcase full of clothes, how would you use it?

Get dressed up and go somewhere glamorous for a glass of champagne.

What's the best advice you can give someone to help them stay positive?

Change what you can and if you can’t, don’t worry about it!


How important is social media to you?

Very, because I love connecting with people from all over the world.


What's your fave social media channel?

Instagram – as a model, it's all about the image.


If you had your own hashtag what would it be?

#BeYourOwnSelf – because I want to encourage everyone to be the best version of themselves.


Complete the sentence: “What the world needs now is...”

Love sweet love – kindness and understanding of others.

 

Who would play you in a film, and what would the plot line be?

It would have to be Scarlett Johansson starring in the story of my life – how amazing it's been. In many ways, the extraordinary in an ordinary life.
