French actress Eva Green captivated onlookers in Paris recently, when she attended the opening of her aunt’s photo exhibition in Paris where she wore jewellery from Montblanc.
The former Bond-girl was seen at the exhibition, called Green, wearing three rings from Montblanc’s 4810 Classic collection, each in either red, white or yellow gold and set with diamonds and a pair of earrings from the Star collection, made in silver and onyx.
The subject of the exhibition, which was held at the Galerie Catherine Houard, was the actress’s aunt, Marika Green, who has put together a series of 100 photographs tracing the history of four generations of the family.
Actress and model Marika Green has put together a collection of approximately one hundred photos retracing the personal journey of four generations of the same family, all involving photography.
These perspectives and these subjects invite us to make a subjective excursion into the political, social and esthetic history of an entire century, and even a bit beyond: from the history of Sweden at the beginning of the twentieth century, through two world wars, everyday life and cultural life in Paris in the fifties and sixties, and finally the fashion world and that of the cinema, from the sixties all the way to the present day.

Four generations represented here by two photographers, Mia Green (1870–1949) and Lennart Green (1913–2007), and two women who are each both actress and model, Marika Green and Eva Green, photographed by some of the great photographers of the last fifty years, Helmut Newton, Jeanloup Sieff, William Klein, Guy Bourdin, Peter Knapp, Frank Horvat, Willy Rizzo, Ellen von Unwerth, Lothar Schmid and Paolo Roversi.
