Whilst researching for the previous post we came across these shots of gorgeous French model and actress Noémie Lenoir. She is best known, here in the UK, for being the lingerie model who has, until recently, regularly featured in the blockbuster Christmas TV adverts for Marks and Spencer (a retailer who, until comparatively recently was famous for not advertising on TV).
Noémie in the M&S 2009 Christmas TV advert which 6 people thought was "offensive and demeaning to women" Just jealous that they didn't look that good in knickers, we think!
The 2009 version received a number of complaints (well, eight) to the Advertising Standards Authority over a very brief sequence of Noémie prancing around a fake forest in lingerie. It was sexist. the complainants maintained. Good grief!
Born in France she has a French father and her mother comes from the island of La Réunion and has Malagasy blood which explains her exotically lovely looks. She was spotted by Ford models at the age of sixteen and the 5'10" tall model has had a high profile career modelling for L'Oréal, Gap, Next and Victoria's Secret.
Noémie displays herself for Sports Illustrated
She has also appeared in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition. Noémie has, more recently, appeared in a number of minor film roles. She has gone through the de rigeur relationships with a rapper, a footballer and a millionaire playboy but was taken to hospital last year after a suspected suicide bid.
