Marisa Berenson: Queen of the Scene
Iconic model of the late ’60s and ’70s, granddaughter of the brilliant fashion genius Elsa Schiapparelli, once coined “the girl of the Seventies” by Yves Saint Laurent, Marisa Berenson has to be one of the most exquisite beauties of all time.
This make up is ridiculously inspirational!

Celebrating the centenary of Marcel Proust’s birth at a costume ball thrown by Baron Guy de Rothschild, Marisa went dressed as Luisa Casati, an acquaintance of her grandmother.
Sometimes a woman comes along who embodies the spirit of her time with effortless quality that that defies all words. Marisa was one of the most captivating woman of her era. I’m just thrilled to be able to visit her there in the land of inspiration from time to time.
