She had her first experience in the modeling business at the age of 14. Carmen took part in shoots for Vogue. Then she conquered most
photographers by her beauty.
Our heroine was born into the family of a ballerina and a violinist. They lived in poverty. After her parents divorced, the girl stayed with her mother. Her mother wanted her daughter to be a ballerina and sent her to ballet.
The girl was constantly criticized by her parents, because she was strict and sometimes even rude woman, she did not like the
appearance of her daughter. Carmen considered herself ugly, because she was the highest and thin among her peers and was not
popular with boys.
Because of the great lack of money, the girl could live for months at boarding school. She dreamed of becoming a ballerina, but since
she had rheumatism, it became impossible.
Nevertheless, Carmen achieved a lot, at the age of 14 she began her modeling career. In 1947, her picture was on the cover of Vogue.
The model admitted that she did not like this picture, seeing it the girl almost cried — her hair made her look like a boy.
The celebrity had a difficult childhood. She and her mother lived without many amenities, money was constantly in short supply. They
had to pawn a sewing machine to pay for the apartment. In order to pay the electric bill, they spent all month raising money. Now with
that baggage of experience, the woman truly knows how to appreciate money and life.
And it’s true, when you look at the photos of this amazing woman, you realize that the years have no power over her. She looks beautiful.
Now, just as in her youth, she takes part in fashion shows and shoots advertising campaigns.
