Noémie Lenoir

Born September 19, 1979
Noémie Lenoir is a French and Malagasy 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."

Noemie Lenoir Quotes

"Being sexy is a game."

-Noemie Lenoir

Lenoir was spotted by an agent from the prestigious Ford Modeling Agency, and a magazine shoot for Marie Claire and Ralph Lauren in Paris soon followed. But Lenoir was determined to finish school and learn English before setting out into the turbulent world of modeling. With those goals achieved, Noemie moved to New York in 1999 to give herself a better chance at furthering a modeling career.

The move certainly paid off; within a year she was already making waves. At Oscar de la Renta's fall 2000 show, anti-fur activists climbed onto the stage in front of her, but Lenoir quite literally took the disruption in stride, and she kept strutting right down the runway. It was that kind of show-must-go-on attitude that helped her get selected the following year to exclusively walk the Gucci show in Milan.

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.

When she's home in New York, Lenoir also likes to get plenty of exercise. To stay in shape, she swims whenever she gets the chance. Also an animal lover, Noemie Lenoir is an experienced equestrian: She often rides a horse named Boston at the Chelsea Equestrian Center on Manhattan's West Side. Lenoir loves riding because, she says, it brings her closer to nature while clearing her mind and relaxing.

Notes: -

She has a tattoo on her right foot and one on her lower tummy.
