Welcome again to Model of the Week, where BellaSugar and famous models come together to talk beauty. This week I had the pleasure of interviewing Noémie Lenoir (pronounced "no-ay-mie lin-wah"). The 5'10" green-eyed model and actress was born on September 19th, 1979 in Les Ulis, just outside of Paris. Her father is French and her mother is from the French island of La Réunion.
At the age of 16, Noémie was discovered by a Ford modeling scout at a post office; however, she didn't begin a serious career until she finished school.
In 1999 she moved to New York, and since then she has worked with some of the most famous photographers in world. Her campaigns include high-profile clients such as Victoria's Secret, Gap, Next, Tommy Hilfiger, Ann Taylor, Ralph Lauren Jeans, Pantene and Marks and Spencer. She has also appeared in Vogue, ELLE, Marie Claire, and Sports Illustrated and has walked in hundreds of fashion shows.
In 2001 Noémie signed with L'Oréal as their spokesmodel and has also taken a stab at acting. She has appeared in After the Sunset, a few French films and is currently filming Rush Hour 3.
She also loves animals, horseback riding, swimming, shopping and spending time with her two-year-old son, Kelyan. Noémie could not be any more of a pleasure to work with, and we wish her all the best!
