An icon of French cinema, Mireille Darc, has died, aged 79.

Her heyday was in the 60s and 70s, when she starred in films such as La Grand Sauterelle and Le Grand Blond avec une Chaussure Noire.

For fifteen years, her life both on and off screen was spent with French actor Alain Delon.

Her lifetime’s achievement was recognised by Jacques Chirac in 2006 with a legion d’honneur.
