Noémie describes the district she grew up in near Paris as a ghetto.
Growing up in a banlieue district near Paris, Noémie was first spotted at the age of 17 in 1997 when she was approached by a Ford booker in a post office. She signed with L’Oréal in 1997 and has since appeared in their advertisements alongside Laetitia Casta and long-term model and actress Andie MacDowell. She has also worked for Victoria’s Secret, Gap, Next, and many others.
From 1999 to 2010, she walked for many fashion shows, including ready to wear and haute couture for designers such as Elie Saab, Umanuel Ungaro, and Jean Paul Gaultier. She has graced the covers of magazines, including Flare, FHM, Cosmopolitan, Vogue and Madame Figaro.
