« Take a break with… » Noémie Lenoir – Model – Paris
What’s in the news for you?
I just finished the Crazy Horse show . It was an extraordinary experience. I have very fond memories. I had the opportunity to dance with the most beautiful women in one of the most famous cabarets in the world this was a personal challenge that I could not refuse.
Speaking about your career , who are the people who have inspired you ?
I love fashion . I have been working in this business now for 15 years. The people who have inspired me in my work are those who , through their imagination, have made me change . Whether it is with beautiful dresses , hairstyles or unusual makeup , they have that little bit of madness that I love . I must a little bit like them I guess!
Who do you think is the ideal man / woman ?
I do not think of anyone in particular. But I admire those people who dedicate their lives to helping others, like Abbe Pierre and Mother Teresa were able to do . Loving and respecting my family, my friends and the people around me , this is what ideal means to me.
What does your typical day look like?
I do not really have a typical day . My only ritual is that I take my son to school every morning . So my day usually starts at 7am and ends around 9.30 PM. I am in bed early ! I took almost two years of sabbatical and I must say this did me a lot of good. But I actually started working in June for the show at the Crazy Horse. During these two years , I spent time with my son , my friends , my family and I started a psychotherapy. Because of all this I’m now ready to conquer the world !
What is your favorite place to have dinner?
I have some good addresses where I love to go. Costes , the Kaiten , l’Orient Extrem , the Cosi … But where I like having dinner the most is at home! I love to cook , to put together delicious dishes . One day I would love to open my own restaurant.
What is your best memory : in your career? In your private life?
My best professional memory? I have so many! I’ve been so lucky. I was lucky to have a job that made me travel to the most beautiful countries in the world. Vietnam Pankor Island, Bora Bora, Africa, Argentina, the United States, Japan, China, … I had so many amazing encounters. The generation of models at the start of the millennium did not experience the economic crisis. I have only good memories …
In my private life, my fondest memory is the birth of my son, when you take the little creature in your arms … My God, it’s amazing…
A crazy dream? A hidden pleasure?
I’d love to go into space … Who knows …? This is perhaps not so crazy after all!
A hidden pleasure? Hahaha! Well it should remain hidden!
What is your beauty routine?
I drink 2 liters of water per day, and I cleanse my skin well at night, even if I have no makeup! A little Créaline on a cotton pad and hop! To remove all the impurities! Then I apply a good day cream and anti-wrinkle eye cream from La Roche-Posay under the eyes.
And I do a lot of sports. I promise you: when you start, you won’t be able to live without it.
