Beautiful Photos of Nathalie Delon in the 1960s and ’70s

Born 1941 as Francine Canovas in Nice, French actress, model, film director and writer Nathalie Delon was regarded as one of the most beautiful women in the world in the 1960s and in the 1970s, she was known as French sex symbol.

Delon is notable for her first acting role, appearing opposite her husband, actor Alain Delon, in the neo-noir film Le Samouraï directed by Jean-Pierre Melville (1967). She appeared in 30 films and directed two more.

In 2006, Delon published a memoir, Pleure pas, c’est pas grave (Don’t cry, it’s okay). Le Figaro described it as an account of a dark period in her life—her painful marriage to Delon and his infidelities, her descent into drug use—yet includes moments that made her laugh and the reader too by extension: “delicious and entertaining anecdotes”.

Nathalie Delon died in 2021 at the age of 79, in Paris, from pancreatic cancer. Take a look at these beautiful photos to see portraits of a young Nathalie Delon in the 1960s and 1970s.
