Yumi Lambert is one of the brightest, freshest faces in fashion. She stormed onto international runways during the S/S 2013 season and walked for all the big names in Paris, New York and Milan. She’s only 17 but she’s already walked for Prada, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Fendi, Armani, Chanel, Dior, Miu Miu, Nina Ricci, and many more.
Half-Japanese, half-Belgian, hers is not a face you’re likely to forget. Determined to make her modelling dream come true, Yumi went to Dominique Modeling Agency without being scouted and left with a contract. Karl Lagerfeld certainly noticed her – she’s his latest muse and can be seen in the current Chanel campaign. She’s also done editorial work for Dazed & Confused and Harper’s Bazaar US.
The striking beauty’s favourite band is Arcade Fire and says her best modelling moment was when she did a photo shoot in the canals of Venice.
