Despite her brilliant career, she can begin to master the work of the cashier.
Marie Helvin will soon turn 70, but the former supermodel cannot afford to retire.
Moreover, despite the once brilliant career in the fashion industry, the ex-lover of the brother of the Duchess of Cornwall can begin to master the work of the cashier.
Helvin now understands why the ex-wife of Mika Jagger-model Jerry Hall advised her to ask her lovers for jewelry.
«I was not interested in jewelry, but Jerry never understood this. She loved her diamonds. Now I understand that she was much smarter than me. It is a pity that I did not follow her advice», she said.
The model, which was previously called the «most beautiful woman in the world», explained that her problems with money began during the pandemic.
However, the star of the 70s does not plan to ask for help from her ex-husband. She is determined to earn a living on her own.
«I had to come to terms with the fact that modeling, perhaps, came to an end. But do not be mistaken: these words are not for self-pity. I sincerely do not understand why people are horrified when I say that I can start working in a supermarket», said Marie.
But she still regrets that she sold priceless vintage dresses that Yves Saint Laurent and many other couturiers gave her at the beginning of their careers.
Marie was born in Tokyo but grew up in Hawaii.
At the age of 15, the girl became the face of the Kanebo cosmetics. And four years later she moved to London, where she met her future husband at a photo shoot for Vogue.
The couple got married in 1975, and the model for ten years was the muse of the photographer.
