Coinciding with the start of Milan fashion week, 10 Corso Como’s Galleria Carla Sozzani will pay homage to French model Simone Micheline Bodin, the crown jewel mannequin of postwar couture in France.
The exhibit, aptly titled Bettina, a moniker given to her by Jacques Fath, who also suggested she chop her long red locks in favor of a short crop, will feature more than 100 images signed by legendary photographers like Jean-Philippe Charbonnier, Henry Clarke, Erwin Blumenfeld, and Irving Penn.
Once called “the most photographed French woman in France,” Bettina was the archetypal model of the mid-20th century Le Tout-Paris, working with the likes of Coco Chanel, Christian Dior, and Hubert de Givenchy, who named his very first collection after her.
The exhibit, which will also feature a catalog of the legendary photographs, will run from September 16 to November 2.
