Born into a family of prominence and style (grandmother was Elsa Schiaparelli), Vittoria Marisa Schiaparelli Berenson became a fashion icon in her own right. Her modeling career began at 16 when discovered by Diana Vreeland who became one of her biggest champions.
Marisa worked with the top photographers and was on the cover of Vogue, Bazaar and even Playboy. Later she did film work, most memorable for me was her role in Barry Lyndon from 1975.
Marisa Berenson: A Life in Pictures is a must- buy book for anyone in love with 60’s and 70’s fashion.
