Noémie Lenoir

Born on September 19, 1979
Noémie Lenoir is a French model and actress.

For a model, sexiness is practically a job requirement, and Noemie Lenoir is hardly lacking. Her knockout, supple figure can be seen in her multiple Sports Illustrated swimsuit shoots, and she can be just as fetching playing up an untamed and savage look or a demure and stylish one, as she can when she's getting wet 'n' wild.

At the same time, Lenoir's youth helps her keep that fresh-faced innocence that can tone down any oversexed ensemble, yet still somehow makes her all the more alluring. The only real drawback she faces in this department is that, like most fashion models, she may be a little thin for some tastes. But, as she herself will jokingly admit, "don't worry, we [models] eat."

Lenoir was first spotted by Ford Models when she was 16 years of age. In 2001, Lenoir signed with L'Oréal, and has since appeared in their advertisements alongside Laetitia Casta and long-term model and actress Andie MacDowell. Lenoir is currently the face of UK high-street retailer Marks & Spencer, and can be seen in various British magazines and billboards alongside fellow models Twiggy and Laura Bailey.

By now, Noemie Lenoir has modeled for just about every major designer around the world, and has worked with some of the fashion industry's hottest photographers, such as Mario Testino (for the prestigious Pirelli Calendar), Ellen von Unwerth, Steven Meisel, and Peter Lindbergh. In addition to Marie Claire, Lenoir's photos have appeared in such magazines as Allure, both American Elle and British Elle, Glamour, Mademoiselle, and Interview.

She has also had two shoots for Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Edition in 2000 and 2001, and even graced the New York Times Magazine. Her modeling credits for ad campaigns are just as impressive: the Gap, Tommy Hilfiger, Ann Taylor, Ralph Lauren Jeans, Pantene Europe, and Victoria's Secret catalogue. She has also worked as a spokesmodel for L'Oreal.

In 2002, Lenoir took her first stab at the movie biz, appearing in the 2002 French film Astérix & Obélix: Mission Cléopâtre. The movie was based on the popular French comic book Astérix, and starred French screen icon Gerard Depardieu.

With so much work in so little time, it should come as no surprise that Noemie has a hectic lifestyle. She spends three or four days a week just traveling, often to such far-flung locales as Pankor Island, Malaysia (where her favorite hotel is located). But Lenoir knows how taxing such a schedule can be on her body -- her main asset -- so she makes a point of eating right and getting plenty of sleep while on the road.

She's especially fond of shoes, handbags and pants, and carries around her sunglass collection (more than ten pairs) with her when she travels. As for what's in store for the future, Noemie speculates that she might even end up working in another area of the fashion industry, but for the moment, she says, "I'm not worried about that."
