Alice Ozy was successful as an actress, but best known as a courtesan. She was well paid by her lovers, mostly notables from Paris society. She had an affair with Victor Hugo's son Charles, who complained to his father that she was unfaithful. Hugo intervened by seducing Alice himself, much to the disgust of his son.
Other lovers were The Duke of Aumale, Théodore Chassériau (1848-1850), Théophile Gautier and Louis Napoleon Bonaparte. She was the model for the women on "Supper After the Fancy Dress Ball" (1855) by Thomas Couture. Chassériau painted her in the nude.
