Queen of the Scene
Marisa Berenson (born February 15, 1947 in New York City, New York) is an American actress and model. A fashion model who came to prominence in the early 1960s -- "I once was one of the highest paid models in the world", she told The New York Times -- Berenson appeared on the cover of the July 1970 issue of Vogue as well as the cover of Time on 15 December 1975. 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".
