Editorial Reviews

Review

"Her autobiography came out in 2010, and now we have a new book that perhaps traces Berenson’s life even more clearly: Marisa Berenson: A Life in Pictures brings together more than 300 shots featuring the model. It’s an exploration not only of her fantastic career, but also of the history of fashion, art and cinema." ~Vogue Italy

"Her incredible, precocious, fabulous life will see all new life this October in a book from Rizzoli, complete with an introduction by Hamish Bowles, a conversation with Diane von Furstenberg, and guest-edited by Steven Meisel." ~Hint Magazine

"“Marisa Berenson: A Life in Pictures” is a lavish and deeply personal visual biography that reveals the life of an extraordinary woman who has been at the center of society, fashion, film, and contemporary culture for decades." ~Fashionwindows.com

I remember looking at my mother's Vogue magazines & seeing a beautiful model that I was later to know was named Marisa Berenson. Ms. Berenson truly defined an era, the boomers at the height of flower power & the apotheosis of post-modern. So I was delighted when I saw this book & couldn't wait to get it. Being weaned on my mom's fashion magazines, the 60's and early '70s fashion images are indelibly branded in my memory. Unfortunately, I am not sure how to make sense of the book; it just doesn't hang together. The full page photos by the iconic photographers, Penn, Scavullo, de Rosnay, Aarons, Horst, etc. are unquestionably stunning, but there are questionable editorial choices that I would not have expected of Rizzoli, which really takes away from the book. Either Ms. Berenson was ill advised, or the editors rushed to print? To wit: Some photos are obviously reproductions of photos; not produced by negatives. The result is that the images are grainy, and image quality not what I would expect of a fine publisher. Some photos have been enlarged when they were never meant to support an image 5x the original, and sadly suffer distortion. Only the first few full photo pages/last few photo pages of the book have dates of when photos were taken. The inside of the book is characterized by pages of photos, some full page and others punctuated by mish-mash collages of thumbnail photos showing Ms. Berenson with people who she hobbed nobbed with - some famous, some, well who cares, there are so many thumbnail images. It sort of has the feel of a high school yearbook. Each thumbnail photo is numbered & individuals identified by name on a side bar of the page. Some numbers don't match, some individuals are misnamed, some are named but are not in the picture! (E.g.Read more ›

i'm not sure which is more shocking, the half a dozen photos of her topless or the two of her exhusband Richard Golub but it's very large and chock full of one of the legendary beauties of all time. It's really impossible to take a bad picture of her and his book proves that. There are nice "as told to"s Vogue's Hamish Bowles and designer DVF that are some of the most revealing portions in the book. There are relatively few photos of her late twin sister Berry who died in 9/11 and nothing is said about her but as Marisa recently said "there are no words." But as for the pictures, they're quite revealing, who knew Diana Vreeland was married? She could have stayed out of the spotlight but i'm glad she didn't.

A beautiful book! I purchased this book for my daughter on her birthday. I named her after Marisa Berenson. I loved the name and Ms Berenson is a woman of substance.

This is one of my favorite coffee table books. I really enjoyed the interviews Marisa did in this book. It was fun to see her Vogue covers and disco photographs.
