Her beginnings in cinema occurred when she got invited by her sister Françoise Dorléac to participate in the film "The Young Girls of Rochefort" where she struck by her unique beauty.
The actress forged her distinctive style with her cold beauty, that made her become the muse from various film directors like Buñuel, Truffaut and Polanski.


Catherine carried out the slogan "less is more" and as the intelligent woman she was, the actress never let her clothes eclipse her, she was always shining by herself.
 In 1967, Mrs. Deneuve become the muse of Yves Saint Laurent.  The designer-model relationship lasted until his death.



Catherine has always been in fashion.                                                                                                        As for accessories, floppy hats were her favorites, especially since the late sixties and seventies where those were very fashionable.
  
Deneuve was the face of Chanel No. 5 in the 1970s, and her image was also used to represent Marianne, the national symbol of France, from 1985 to 1989.


  
She was the face of Chanel for years and one of her last campaigns was for Louis Vuitton.
