Anita Pallenberg, actress, fashion icon and muse of The Rolling Stones has passed away, aged 70. Pallenberg acted frequently throughout the ’60s and ’70s – even appearing alongside Mick Jagger in steamy art-house drama Performance and dated Keith Richards for over a decade. She also became one of the leading fashion figures at the time, which often forced Richards to borrow some of her finest outfits. Here’s seven pictures of the late actress looking totally iconic.
The actress first met Brian Jones in Munich in 1965, aged 21. The pair were together for two years before their split in 1967.
Soon after their breakup, Pallenberg became close with Keith Richards and were in a relationship which lasted for over a decade.
In his autobiography Life, Richards confirmed that Pallenberg had a brief affair with bandmate with Mick Jagger while the pair filmed Performance.
In the ’60s, Pallenberg became close friends with Jagger’s then-girlfriend Marianne Faithful – with the pair remaining friends throughout their lives
Pallenberg and Richards had three children together, Marlon (pictured), Dandelion Angela and Tara Jo Jo.
As well as being a big influence on the lives of The Stones, she is credited with singing backing vocals on “Sympathy For The Devil’
