Fabulous Photos of Marisa Berenson in the 1960s

Born 1947 in New York City, American actress and model Marisa Berenson came to prominence in the early 1960s as a fashion model — "I once was one of the highest paid models in the world", she once told The New York Times. She was known as "The Queen of the Scene" for her frequent appearances at nightclubs and other social venues in her youth and Yves Saint Laurent dubbed her the girl of the Seventies.

Berenson appeared on the front covers of Vogue and Time, and won the National Board of Review Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role as Natalia Landauer in the 1972 film Cabaret. The role also earned her Golden Globe and BAFTA Award nominations.

In 2001, she made her Broadway debut in the revival of Design for Living. Her other film appearances include Death in Venice (1971), Barry Lyndon (1975), S.O.B. (1981) and I Am Love (2009).
