The Oldies


Veruschka von Lenndorff

Born May, 14, 1939, Veruschka's early years weren't so pleasant. After her fathers execution Veruschka's family was left deficit and poor. Then at the age of 20 she signed with Ford Modelling Agency and in 1961 she moved to New York only to return to Munich shortly after. At the peak of her career she was earning $10,000 a day, but in 1975 she retired from modelling due to a disagreement with fashion editor Grace Mirabella.

Veruschka appears every-so-often on the catwalk. In 2000 she guest modeled during the Melbourne Fashion Festival in Australia. At 71, she modeled for Giles Deacon at London Fashion Week 2010. At 73, Veruschka still attends fashion weeks around the world. From humble beginnings to international stardom, Veruschka von Lenndorff won't let anything, especially age, keep her from her dreams.
