She burst on to the Sixties scene by starring in films by Roman Polanski and Roger Vadim, with whom she had a relationship. By 1967, when she made Bunuel's Belle de Jour, she had become a muse for Yves Saint Laurent, who dressed her for that particular film, and subsequent movies, including La Chamade and La Siréne du Mississipi. From 1965-1972, Deneuve was married to influential fashion photographer David Bailey, and also enjoyed an affair with leading director of the era, Francois Truffaut.
