LASTING POWER: Bettina Graziani, the former muse of Jacques Fath and Hubert de Givenchy, these days wears mainly Azzedine Alaïa. The Tunisian designer is returning the compliment by hosting an exhibition of vintage photographs of Graziani at his gallery in the Marais district of Paris.
“Bettina,” set to run at the Galerie Azzedine Alaïa from Nov. 13 to Jan. 11, will feature images by the likes of Erwin Blumenfeld, Louise Dahl-Wolfe, Robert Doisneau, Horst P. Horst, Irving Penn and Willy Rizzo. The exhibition is on show at the Galleria Carla Sozzani at 10 Corso Como in Milan until Nov. 2.
The redhead with the freckles, who gave her name to Givenchy’s Bettina blouse, was dubbed “the most photographed woman in France” by Paris Match magazine in the early Fifties. Graziani regularly attends industry events, such as the Christian Dior spring couture show in January.
