Before becoming known in Europe for hosting 1969 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest, she was a model and appeared in many publications around the world. She was one of the first faces that Spain saw on television when Televisión Española (TVE) was launched in 1956. She acted in many films since the early 1950s up through the late 1960s.
Later on, she returned to TVE. She retired again in the 2000s when she was treated for breast cancer.
She recovered but remains retired, apart from occasional collaborations and appearances, such as on 7 December 2006, when she hosted the special show Gala 50 años de TVE, which celebrated the 50th anniversary of TVE, alongside Anne Igartiburu and Paula Vázquez.
