Meet the 100-year-old woman who posed for Vogue on their 100th anniversary

British Vogue turned 100 this year, and to celebrate the milestone, they've got a very special cameo in the June issue from someone also in the centenarian's club.

Marjorie "Bo" Gilbert, a 100-year-old woman from South Wales, stars in an ad campaign that Harvey Nichols created specifically for the magazine's big birthday.

Marjorie Gilbert is the first 100-year-old model to pose on Vogue magazine.

Gilbert who was in the cardboard box-making business before she retired got an invite to take part in a high profile shoot for a new Harvey Nichols campaign.

She rocked 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 photo shoot 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," said Bo.
