Her second husband was Count Paul Pálffy ab Erdöd, a much-married Austrian-born Slovakian playboy. They married in 1938 and soon divorced.

For a number of years, Vilmorin was the mistress of Duff Cooper, the British ambassador to France. As a young woman, in 1923, she was engaged to Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. She ended her life as the companion of André Malraux.
