Dressed in Valentino glasses, a Dries Van Noten coat, The Row pants and a Victoria Beckham top, ‘Bo’ as she’s known – was photographed by Dazed and Confused co-founder Phil Poynter, making her Vogue’s first ever centenarian model to pose for its pages
Gilbert who was thrilled by the photoshoot said:
“I do things I think a lot of people wouldn’t at my age and I’ve always liked to keep myself looking quite decent, even if I’m not going out,” says Bo
