Nadège du Bospertus: French supermodel

Years ago I pulled this picture out of a magazine; I can’t remember which; but I have always liked the image. She looks so charming.

Thanks to a knowledgeable commenter, I have found out that she is Nadège du Bospertus.

Here are some more pictures of her. She flourished as a model in the 1990s, although she is now well-known as a judge on Italia’s Next Top Model.

    The models I have blogged about lately mostly wore their hair short. I like short haired women. Some men definitely don’t:

    She doesn’t look it, but this model is another tall girl. There is no clear consensus but it seems she is about 5 foot 9 inches.

    There is not a lot available on her ethnic background but a site in Italian apparently attributes her complexion and features in part to her mother from the French island of Réunion in the Indian Ocean.

    She needs to ditch the boy haircut.

      There are photos of her (including a cover for Vogue or some such magazine) where she looks too boyish for my tastes. But generally I like the way she looks.
