Black and White: Anna Karina

Back in a day, during the 60’s, Anna Karina was a goddess of french movie scene!

Anna Karina (born Hanne Karin Blarke Bayer) is a Danish-French film actress, director and screenwriter and she has rich cinematography resume. Before her movie career, Anna Karina was a successful fashion model. During her modeling career, Coco Chanel suggested her to change her name to ‘Anna Karina’ and the new star was born.

But she is mostly known as a muse of the french director Jean-Luc Godard. They were such a beautiful couple and their photos are one of the most popular couple photos on the Internet now a days…

Karina was gorgeous, young and talented, and Godard was and still is one of the greatest french directors. He found inspiration in her and they fell in love. Their pictures often show Karina looking at Godard with so much love, desire and even sadness in her eyes, which I find pretty emotional.

Unfortunately Godard and Karina split in 1965. She married scriptwriter-actor Pierre Fabre in 1968 and divorced in 1973 and after that she was married to actor-director Daniel Duval from 1978 to 1981. But it seems that Anna Karina have finally found her true love with american film director Dennis Berry, the son of director John Berry – they have been married since 1982.

Anna Karina was a french new wave icon and her greatest roles were in movies: “The Little Soldier” (1960), “A Woman is a Woman” (1961), “Vivre sa vie” (1962), “Bande a part” (1964), “Alphaville” (1965), “The Nun” (directed by Jacques Rivette in 1966) and many others…

Enjoy in some of the most beautiful black and white Anna Karina’s photos (ofc in my opinion):
