ELSA MARTINELLI

The fabulous Elsa Martinelli, photographed on the set of Elio Petri's The 10th Victim (1965) by Secchiaroli. A beautiful example of mid-1960s style and Op Art. Martinelli was born in 1935 and discovered by designer Roberto Capucci in 1953 while she was working as a barmaid. She last appeared on the TV series Orgoglio (2005). In addition to The 10th Victim, Martinelli appeared in many classic retro films, including OSS 117 Takes a Vacation (1970), Candy (1968), and The Trial by Orson Welles (1962). Spy Vibe looks at 10th Victim sets and Mods to Moongirls costumes.
