Bettina Graziani (1925 – 2015, born Simone Micheline Bodin, also professionally known as ‘Bettina’)

Bettina GrazianiA French fashion model and muse of Hubert de Givenchy, Simone Bodin was renamed Bettina Graziani by the designer Jacques Fath who told her: “We already have a Simone; you look to me like a Bettina”. Graziani was one of the first and highest paid supermodels of the twentieth century and after a brief marriage to a photographer became the fiancée of the playboy prince Prince Aly Khan in 1955. He was killed in a car crash near Paris in 1960 but left her $280,000 (the equivalent of £1.5 million today). She claimed that she owed her “success more to an expressive face than to my good looks” and in later years became a poet and Commander of France’s Order of Arts and Letters.
