Paris to Hollywood Exhibition Access Guide

Section 2

When my parents entered a room, you couldn’t take your eyes off them. They made style look effortless. Their style was a reflection of their love.

– Cecilia Peck Voll, daughter of Gregory and Véronique Peck

A Figure of Fashion

Véronique Peck stood out for her fashion-forward choices, always on trend without being showy and perfectly attuned to what looked best on her. Her eclectic taste reflected the inquisitive nature of this former journalist. She was intrigued by the avant-garde couturiers of the sixties and seventies such as André Courrèges, Pierre Cardin, and Yves Saint Laurent. She also enjoyed wearing designs by the masters of French haute couture such as Balenciaga and Christian Dior, as well as Pucci, a rising star in Italian fashion. Véronique was featured in numerous magazines and newspapers, cementing her as a style icon among Hollywood’s most fashionable.

…She was the quintessential French beauty . . . not perfect, but beyond perfect, with that certain allure—the French call it je ne sais quoi.

– Jane Fonda
