The images featured throughout the Fashion Magazine 'Grand Dame' editorial may seem jarring at first. That is because it shows off the fashion of today on a model of yesterday. Striking rather youthful poses, the legendary China Machado, who was once the muse of American photographer Richard Avedon as well as a house model for Dior and Givenchy, proves that she still has what it takes to be in front of the camera.

This time posing in front of New York-based photographer Moo King's lens, China Machado keeps up with the fast-paced industry despite being 82 years old. Outfitted by fashion editor George Antonopolous, she dons the designs of Oscar De La Renta, Salvatore Ferragamo, Blumarine, Christopher Kane, Prada, Cynthia Rowley, Proenza Schouler, Etro and Diane Von Furstenberg.
