Style Classics: Capucine

I've always loved the first movie in The Pink Panther series, starring Peter Sellers, David Niven, Claudia Cardinale, and Capucine. It's absolute classic 1960s glamor, from the costumes, to the Henri Mancini soundtrack, to the setting in Rome and the Italian Alps. The French actress and model Capucine is the most glamorous of all, and unfortunately, it's difficult to find many pictures of her these days. She was a highly successful model, showing for Dior and Givency, among others. She was also close friends with Audrey Hepburn, and served as a witness at Hepburn's 1969 wedding.

Her elegant "look."  

I believe this is a publicity shot (film unknown).  She often wore classic, unfussy looks.

Capucine played in numerous films, opposite actors such as Peter O'Toole and William Holden (whom she dated for two years). 
Here's Capucine as a french show girl, in the movie North to Alaska, playing opposite John Wayne. 

Stunning even in a shower cap.  From an amusing scene in The Pink Panther.  

The final court scene in The Pink Panther. It's a shame there are so few images from this film, because her entire wardrobe is STUNNING.  Worth watching just for the clothes.  Note Claudia Cardinale as Princess Dala (RH side) lovely in a chocolate and cream ensemble.

Unknown location, but it's a beautiful setting.

Sport fashion.  This is probably from the skiing scene in The Pink Panther.

So elegant-the clothes and hats in the court scene are incredible.

The whole move is like that. I was tempted to try and photograph the television!

She is absolutely stunning! I can't believe I had no idea about this lovely and elegant lady! (I feel quite embarrassed) Great post. Now I need to watch that movie - it's perfect for this weekend~

Love these old black and whites.

The photo with the caption "Unknown location, but it's a beautiful setting" is definitely not her. Capucine does not have an upturned nose.
