In the Sixties, fashion was about liberation. It was about setting women free; it wasn't about being unable to walk.
I dressed all in black and went to see all the top photographers, like Irving Penn, and said, 'I am Veruschka who comes from the border between Russia, Germany and Poland. I'd like to see what you can do with my face.
Fame, I mean, it's like a bubble, in a way. It's like something glittery, and it goes, and it can be forgotten fast.
No, it has not been hard to grow older, because I believe if you have something you believe in that will keep you alive far more than plastic surgery or Botox.
