De Lamargé was one of Duffy’s frequently used models. Originally working with her for French Elle in 1962, Duffy worked with De Lamargé extensively during his first period with the magazine. She also appeared in many of his works for Vogue, Queen and The Sunday Times when he was no longer under contract with British Vogue.
He was fond of her ability to drastically change her appearance. In an interview for the Sunday Times Magazine in 2003 he said “The amazing thing about this model – and by God she was bright – was how she built up her face. Underneath the makeup she was dead ordinary – once, I didn’t recognise her in the dressing room.”
Nicole De Lamargé began modeling in 1958 and was hugely successful, credited with launching brands and agencies throughout her career. De Lamargé tragically died in a car accident in Monaco at age 31 in 1969.
