Marie de Villepin

Marie Galouzeau de Villepin (born 8 May 1986) is a French model, actress and singer. She is the daughter of former Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin. She has a brother, Arthur, and a younger sister, Victoire. She graduated with the "licence" degree in law from the French university "Panthéon Assas Paris II" in 2006 and became a model in New York. She later focused on acting, after taking acting lessons in Paris at the Cours Florent and in New York.



She was the bride for the French fashion designer Franck Sorbier in his Fall 2004 Couture collection. Her first major breakthrough was a fashion story shot by Gilles Bensimon in the American edition of ELLE in October 2005.

She was the face and the spokesperson of the perfume Ange ou Démon by Givenchy from 2006 to 2008. In 2007, she was also chosen by Krizia for their Spring and Fall 2007 advertising campaigns.

She currently models in New York under the alias of Marie Steiss. Marie Steiss was on the runway for Krizia in Milan, Spring and Winter 2007 collections; for Givenchy in Paris, Spring 2007 RTW collection. She was on the runway in New York for Diane von Fürstenberg, Spring 2006, Winter 2006, Winter 2007 and Spring 2008 collections. She was also seen on the catwalk for Catherine Malandrino and Nicole Romano, Spring 2007 collections; for United Bamboo, Winter 2006 collection.

Marie, like both her siblings, is blonde and slender (1.80 m, 55 kg).


She had a small career as a child actor, playing in the Danièle Thompson directorial debut La bûche (English: Season's Beatings (1999) alongside Sabine Azéma, Emmanuelle Béart and Charlotte Gainsbourg. She had a role as Philippa of Hainault in a French TV miniseries, Les Rois Maudits (2005), based on the novels of Maurice Druon.

In 2008, she decided to focus more on acting. She had a small part in the Quentin Tarantino film Inglourious Basterds (2009), but her performance was cut during the final editing.

She decided to take back her real name - Marie de Villepin - when she got her first female leading part in the film Baikonur by German director and producer Veit Helmer. This romantic drama tells the love story between a French space tourist and a young man living in the Kazakh steppe. Cofinanced by ARTE, this film was shot until November 2010 and was released in September 2011. Its international screening happened during Busan International Film Festival in October 2011.


Marie de Villepin is currently the lead singer of the group Pinkmist.
