Yvette Carmen Mimieux (born January 8, 1942 (some sources state 1939) is a now-retired American movie and television actress. She was born in Los Angeles, California to a French father and Mexican mother, Carmen Montemayor.

In 1960, Mimieux appeared in the teen movie Where The Boys Are as well as George Pal's 1960 film version of H.G. Wells' classic 1895 novel, The Time Machine in 1960, playing the character 'Weena', co-starring Rod Taylor. This was followed by The Light in the Piazza (1962) with Olivia de Havilland. In 1963, Mimieux appeared in Diamond Head and Toys in the Attic.

Many of the films in which she appeared after 1963 were both critical and commercial failures. She appeared in a 1964 episode of Dr. Kildare entitled "Tyger Tyger". She later appeared in numerous television series and made-for-television movies, one of which is The Legend of Valentino (1975), where she played Rudolph Valentino's second wife Natacha Rambova. Of note, Mimieux was originally cast to play the role of Carole in Disney's "The Love Bug" and is shown on the initial prototype poster art, along with a white striped red Herbie.
