About Marisa Berenson (1946 – )
Marisa Berenson was born on February 15, 1946, in New York City, New York. Berenson's birth name is Elsa Schiaparelli. Marisa is the granddaughter of the famous fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli. Her maternal grandfather, Wilhelm de Wendt de Kerlor, was a theosophist and a psychic medium.

Her father was Robert Lawrence Berenson, an American diplomat /shipping executive of Lithuanian Jewish descent. Her mother, Gogo Schiaparelli, was a socialite of Italian, Swiss, French, and Egyptian decent.
Marisa's sister, actress/photographer Berry Berenson, was one of the 58 victims of the terrorist-hijacked plane that crashed into the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.
Marisa shared, "I hope she didn't suffer. It's hard to take in. I have hope and tremendous faith. I think that's what gets you through life...through tragedies is when you have faith."
Before entering films, Marisa Berenson, was one of the top fashion models of the 1960s, a favorite at Vogue. She continued to do modeling inbetween her films, and television work.

In 1971, Berenson's first break came from Luchino Visconti, who cast her in Death In Venice. She entered the world of acting, and made a 2nd career taking roles in European and American projects and television.

In 1973, Marisa earned two Golden Globe nomination: one for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in CABARET, as the Jewish department store heiress, Natalia Landauer. The other Golden Globe nomination was for Most Promising Newcomer. She also earned a BAFTA AWARD nomination for this same performance. Marisa did win a National Board of Review Award for Best Supporting Actress in Cabaret.

Marisa and Jim Randall, her first husband, lived in the million dollar mansion in Beverly Hills that he bought from Debbie Reynolds. They divorced in 1978, after a two year marriage. Berenson's and Jim's daughter is Starlite Melody Randall, born in 1977.

Marisa tried marriage again in 1982, marrying Aaron Richard Golub. They divorced in 1987. The judge ruled that because of the increased value of Marisa's modeling and acting career, her earnings were subject to marital property laws at the time of their divorce. This was a painful, financial lesson for Marisa, that she didn't repeat.

Marisa was in a French Mini-Series, La collection: Ecrire pour... la trentaine vue par des écrivains, in 2014.

Marisa is worth 10 million dollars, from her modeling, films and television work and her cosmetic business.

Marisa has her own line of cosmetics, called Marisa Berenson Natural Luxury Cosmetics.

She has found inner peace and a strong connection to her spirituality and God through Transcendental Meditation.
