French television presenter and actress, who was probably the most popular female presenter (speakerine) of French television, from the end of the 1950s through the 1970s.

On 28 January 1938, at the age of fourteen, she was introduced by her brother to the politician and future president of the French Republic François Mitterrand. In March 1940, in spite of her youth, they became engaged, but they separated in January 1942, when the Germans occupied France. During that time he sent her two thousand letters. In 1987, Mitterrand presented her with the Légion d'honneur award for her undeniable imprint on the history of French television.

She married television producer and director Pierre Sabbagh, creator in 1949 of the first daily television news channel in the world. They had no children.

She died from multiple sclerosis on 23 April 1998 in Paris.
