As if that were not enough, he also entered the perfume industry with resounding success.

Although she is one of the women who made a career in the seventh art, her nod to fashion was given thanks to her style, her foray into modeling and, of course, a series of looks that have been reproduced on the pages of newspapers for decades. endless magazines. Nobody! You can forget her role in the movie Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961), where she wore a black Givenchy dress in front of the Tiffany window. Iconic.
