Marisa Berenson: A life in pictures

Being the it-girl for over a decade comes with a burden, and this burden is to heir what consists a great personality to the upcoming generations. And so she did; Marisa Berenson, the huge persona aka Elsa’s Schiaparelli grand-daughter who rose in the 70s, both with her modeling and acting career, has published an album called “Marisa Berenson: A life in pictures”.

Known as “the queen of the scene”, since she was the protagonist not only in many movies (such as Death in Venice, Cabaret and others), but also in the main “gang” of Studio 54, Marisa caused a stir with every appearance she made.

This longstanding supermodel that was firstly photographed with her sister Berry at the age of 5, for American Elle magazine- with Schiaparelli’s red creations- was later multi-photographed by the legends of photography, such as Avedon, Newton, Irving Penn, Robert Mapplethorpe and others. These are the photos that compose her book; covers from Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, shots taken backstage on film sets or parties, natural poses, exotic locations and dashing sensuality will absolutely give you a heads up about what was going on back then.

The book is edited by Steven Meisel, its texts are written by Diane Von Furstenberg and it is published by Rizzoli New York.
