Gudrun and Maj-Lis Genberg, 1959-1961

This gallery page covers the modelling, singing and dancing days of Hjördis Niven’s twin nieces Gudrun and Maj-Lis Genberg (known as Pia and Mia Genberg after their arrival in Paris), from Las Vegas to Paris,  1959-1961.

The girls started out as models in Stockholm, before landing a three month contract to perform with the Folies Bergere in Las Vegas from January – March 1960. This was followed by hugely successful modelling careers in Paris (for Karl Lagerfeld) during 1961, and modelling, singing, dancing and movie careers in Rome.

For more detail on their careers : Pia and Mia Genberg, and for a second photo gallery: Mia and Pia Genberg, Italy 1961-65
