Annette Vadim was born Annette Strøyberg, on December 12, 1934 in Denmark. The beautiful Stroyberg was born on the island of Fyn. She was raised in Copenhagen after her father died. She found her way to Paris in her late teens where she worked for couture houses, including Chanel as a model. Annette was best known for being the pouty-lipped lookalike blonde who replaced Brigitte Bardot in the late 1950s as the wife of French film director Roger Vadim. She became Vadim’s second wife and they had a daughter together. Vadim then proceeded to build and groom a replica of BB with Stroyberg. In 1958, she was 24 years old when she starred in his film Les Liaisons Dangereuses alongside Gerard Philipe and Jeanne Moreau. He tried, but was unable to recreate the same Bardot allure and their marriage as well as her career quickly fell apart. Before she retired, Annette did a few more films including: Blood and Roses (1960), Anima Nera (1962), and Loscippio (1965). Sadly, Annette died of cancer in Copenhagen in 2005.
