She has led a charmed life and has the pictures to prove it.  The daughter of an American diplomat and Italian Countess, granddaughter of designer Elsa Schiaparelli, Marisa Berenson was jet-setting glamour girl of the 70’s.  She was a top model in the 60’s, and parlayed that popularity to launch an acting career with serious directors: Luchino Visconti’s “Death in Venice,” Bob Fosse’s “Cabaret,” and Stanley Kubrick’s “Barry Lyndon.”
