In the modelling business, 30 is often considered old, but one American icon is still rocking the fashion world at the age of 80.

Carmen Dell'Orefice has been a Vogue cover girl many times and once posed for the artist Salvador Dali - during a 65-year career that is now the focus of an exhibition at the London College of Fashion.

She spoke to BBC Breakfast to reveal the secret of her success.
