More About This Title The Autobiography


One of the very first professional supermodels, Marie Helvin has been an iconic image on the fashion scene since the 1970s. For the past four decades she has found herself in the company of the brightest and the best. She was David Bailey's wife and muse, and Paul and Linda McCartney came to their wedding party in Honolulu. David Bowie drew inspiration for his famous Aladdin Sane tour from her fashion shots for Harpers & Queen. Marie entertained Salman Rushdie during the height of the fatwa, and introduced Dodi Al Fayed to Princess Diana. Still at the forefront of the fashion industry, she is as much in demand as ever, most recently modeling for her seventh British Vogue cover. Marie's autobiography candidly tells the story of friendships with—amongst many others—Jerry Hall, Mick Jagger, and Andy Warhol. She reveals the dark side of her own personality as she explains how she gradually came to believe in her own beauty and found fulfillment as an independent woman. Illustrated with images from several outstanding photographers, including Bailey, Helmut Newton, and Nick Knight, Marie Helvin's memoir is the remarkable story of a groundbreaking woman.


Marie Helvin is also the author of Bodypure and Catwalk.
