I doubt we’ll see a more memorable photo shoot this year than this epically stunning series featuring 83-year-old model Daphne Selfe.

Courageous, original and breathtakingly beautiful, the portrait series by UK photographer Perou was conceived to help promote Oxfam‘s “Big Bra Hunt“, which will recycle used bras donated by British women to support anti-poverty efforts in Senegal.

Daphne, the self-described “world’s oldest supermodel”, wears a replica version of Jean Paul Gaultier‘s legendary 1990s conical bodysuit designed for Madonna. The version in these pictures was created by Bordelle, which is accepting custom orders of the replica suit, with profits going to the Oxfam project.

Daphne had a brief modeling and acting career in the early 1950s (above), then came back with a vengeance in 1998 after appearing in Vogue‘s age issue and a Marie Claire feature on yoga. Today, she works with couture fashion labels and the world’s leading photographers.

You can learn more about Oxfam’s Big Bra Hunt here, and see some color behind-the-scenes images from the photo shoot on the Oxfam blog. To inquire about Bordelle‘s conical bra body, write to customerservice@bordelle.co.uk.
