Fenech was born in French Algeria to a Maltese father and Sicilian mother. She initially studied medicine before moving into modelling. Fenech participated in a number of beauty contests (winning, amongst other titles, "Miss Mannequin de la Cote d'Azur" at age 16), later working as a model.
From the late 1960s to early 1980s she starred in many European films although she is best known for her sex comedies both in Italy and Germany. She began with these in the later 1960s with Austrian director Franz Antel. She also appeared several times during this period in Playmen magazine.
The films were essentially low-budget softcore sex comedies.
In the 1980s, she became a television personality on chat shows, often appearing with Barbara Bouchet. During this time she won several awards for her variety shows.
In the mid-1990s she launched her own fashion line and founded her own film production company Immagine e Cinema S.r.l. with her son.
After many years of work in movie production (she produced, among others, The Merchant of Venice (2004) with Al Pacino), Fenech accepted Quentin Tarantino's offer to star in another movie, Hostel: Part II (2007), directed by Eli Roth.
