In 1962, the French designer staged his first haute couture show and asked Victoire to be his star model. For that particular spring couture collection, Saint Laurent cloaked her in a chiffon veil, and sent her out in a lace trimmed gown that was an instant sensation. Her career as Saint Laurent’s muse was short lived however. Not long after the show, she gave up modeling to marry and start a family.
