Oh she was gorgeous!: Catherine Deneuve

29/10/2007


Ladies (and gentlemen): I give you Cathérine Fabienne Dorléac. An inveterate smoker, Yves St Laurent muse and the star of Belle De Jour and that lesser lesbian classic The Hunger.

I could expound on the many other marvellous films that the erstwhile Marianne of France made. Some of excellent quality (the films by André Téchiné among others, but also Lars von Trier's output with Bjork, 8 Femmes by Ozon)... And let's not forget about her latest endeavour: Persepolis, a film based on the beautiful book by Marjane Satrapi, for which Deneuve did the voiceover with her daughter, Chiara Mastroianni.

Things to like about her: feminist, against the death penalty, passionate about AIDS and cancer causes, etc.

Feast your eyes, I say, because at 64 she still looks pretty amazing, I think.
