Profile Bio Text
was Best friends with Audrey Hepburn.
Capucine (6 January 1928 – 17 March 1990) was a French fashion model and actress best known for her comedic roles in The Pink Panther (1963) and What's New Pussycat? (1965). She appeared in 36 films and 17 television productions between 1948 and 1990.
Capucine was born Germaine Hélène Irène Lefebvre in Saint-Raphaël, Var, France, on 6 January 1928 (She often confused the issue by claiming she was born in 1931 or 1933, and most sources report these years). She attended school in Saumar, France, and received a B.A. in foreign languages. At 17, while riding in a carriage in Paris, she was noticed by a commercial photographer.
She became a fashion model, working for fashion houses Givenchy and Christian Dior. She adopted the name, "Capucine" (French for nasturtium). She met Hollywood actress Audrey Hepburn modeling in Givenchy (with whom Hepburn was best friends and whose muse she was) in Paris. The two would remain close friends for the rest of Capucine's life.
