This week's Model of the Week is Noémie Lenior (pronounced lin-wah), a 5'10" green-eyed, French-born model and actress whose distinct look may be familiar to you.
The 27-year-old was discovered at the age of sixteen at a post office by a Ford Modeling Agent, but she didn't begin a serious career until she finished school.
In 1999 she moved to New York and has since worked with some of the most famous photographers in the world on campaigns for 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.
