Beauty Icon: Marisa Berenson

Born in New York into a world of minor aristocracy and major intellectual clout, Marisa was the eldest child of diplomat Robert Berenson and Schiaparelli's daughter, Gogo, the Marchesa Cacciapuoti di Giugliano. Taught to dance by Gene Kelly and groomed in style and grace by Diana Vreeland, her elegance was apparent early on.
