Marisa Berenson

Yves Saint Laurent dubbed Marisa Berenson "the girl of the Seventies." Considering her grandmother was the legendary couturier Elsa Schiaparelli, fashion was part of her DNA. She began modeling at 16-years-old and Diana Vreeland eventually took the star under her wing. She worked with the most storied '70s designers including YSL, Azzedine Alaïa, and Halston, as well as legendary photographers Richard Avedon, Helmut Newton, and Irving Penn.
