Anita Pallenberg Has Died
Anita Pallenberg, 73, had many titles to her name; model, actress, sixties style icon and Rolling Stones Muse. Stella Schnabel, a close friend of Pallenberg, announced the news of her passing on twitter, saying she had "never met a woman quite like" her. Born in Rome, Pallenberg started out as an actress and became known for her style, particularly around the rock'n'roll years of the the 60's and 70's. She dated Brian Jones of The Rolling Stones before a 12 year relationship with Keith Richards, with whom she had three children, one of which sadly died as a baby.
Tributes have been pouring in for the model on social media, who maintained strong links to the fashion world, particularly London Fashion Week. She also obtained a degree from Central Saint Martins. Staring in roles such as Barbarella and Mister Lonely, she also made a cameo appearance in Absolutely Fabulous in 2001.
Survived by her two children and five grand children, this well loved and respected model and actress will be sadly missed.
