Saint Laurent has called her his twin sister and referred to her as his female incarnation. Tom Ford was so inspired by her that he dedicated his debut YSL Rive Gauche collection to her. When asked about her fashion sense, Catroux said that she has “dressed the same way practically since I was born. I don’t dress as a woman. I’m not interested in fashion at all."
Catroux is famed for her long white-blond hair, lanky body, gaunt features, and androgynous appearance. Catroux and Saint Laurent met, according to her, in a "very, very gay" nightclub in Paris, Regine's, in the 1960s and had a friendly relationship until his death. Reminiscing on their friendship, Catroux said: "I had a fairytale life with him."
In 1968, Betty Saint married French interior decorator François Catroux, a grandson of General Georges Catroux. The couple has two daughters: Maxime, a book editor at Flammarion, and Daphné, who is married to Count Charles-Antoine Morand.
