Posted in Uncategorized by stylecouch on September 21, 2010



She was born as Christa Päffgen in Cologne, grew up in West-Berlin. In the 50s she worked as a  model all over the world, with base in Paris. She also appeared in Federico Fellini’s ‘La Dolce Vita’ . In 1960 she gave birth to a child (Ari Boulogne, son of Alain Delon) and met Robert Zimmermann (probably better known as Bob Dylan). In the late 60s Nico moved to New York where she became an essential member of  the controversial Velvet underground band with roots in Andy Warhol’s famous ‘Factory’.
