Icona indiscussa, modella fra le più celebrate e ricercate da stilisti e fotografi degli anni Quaranta e
Cinquanta, Bettina è un emblema della moda francese. Musa di Jacques Fath, è testimone
privilegiata degli anni folgoranti che attraversano la moda a Parigi: da Jacques Costet a Lucien
Lelong, da Hubert de Givenchy a Christian Dior fino a Coco Chanel.
La mostra ripercorre la sua carriera attraverso oltre cento immagini firmate dai più grandi fotografi
di quegli anni: Erwin Blumenfeld, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Jean-Philippe Charbonnier, Henry Clarke,
Louise Dahl-Wolfe, Georges Dambier, Robert Doisneau, Nat Farbman, Horst P. Horst, Arik Nepo,
Gordon Parks, Irving Penn, Willy Rizzo, Emile Savitry, fratelli Seeberger, Maurice Zalewski.

Recognized as a great Muse to the designers of the 40's and 50's, Bettina would become one of the most photographed women in the mid 20th century world of fashion. Muse to Jacques Fath, Bettina was a privileged witness of the years of the dazzling world of postwar couture in France then being created by Jacques Costet, Lucien Lelong, Hubert de Givenchy, Christian Dior and Coco Chanel.
The exhibition at the Galleria Carla Sozzani traces her career through more than a hundred images signed by the greatest photographers of the time: Erwin Blumenfeld, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Jean-Philippe Charbonnier, Henry Clarke, Louise Dahl-Wolfe, George Dambier, Robert Doisneau, Nat Farbman, Horst P. Horst, Arik Nepo, Gordon Parks, Irving Penn, Willy Rizzo, Emile Savitry, Seeberger brothers, Maurice Zalewski.
